Buescher on racing at Dover:
“We’re ready to tackle another doubleheader this weekend in Dover, a track that is so unique in your approach to each corner. I was fortunate to get a win there in the Xfinity Series back in 2015, and know it is a track that Jack has had a lot of success at over the years. We’re proud of our top-5 effort last weekend in a place that was new for everyone, and look forward to building on that this weekend in our SunnyD and Fastenal machines.”
Last Time Out
Buescher secured his second top-five of the season last weekend with a fifth-place run in the inaugural Cup event at the Daytona Road Course. After rolling off the grid 21st, Buescher and the No. 17 team put themselves on the right end of the strategy as the laps wound down. With a final caution flag with five laps remaining, Buescher ran ninth, and restarted seventh, before powering his way through the field into the top-five in the closing laps, securing his first-ever top-five at a road course in the Cup Series. It also marked Jack Roush’s first Cup top-five on a road course since 2014.
Where They Rank
Buescher is 22nd in driver standings through 23 events.
On the Car Sunday
Fastenal celebrates its 10th season with Roush Fenway Racing in 2020. The Minnesota company spent three years on the No. 99 before jumping to the No. 17 Cup Series entry, and were the primary partner on the No. 60 Xfinity team that captured the owner’s championship in 2011.
Scott (KCP), Gearwrench, Krylon and Masterlock will ride aboard the No. 17 as Fastenal Racing’s featured suppliers. Fastenal will also celebrate its national Go Blue sales contest on Buescher’s ride this weekend, by highlighting the names of the Fastenal employees in the Central Canada Region for their continued success. Each employee’s name in the region will be displayed on the hood of the Fastenal Ford Sunday.
