Buescher on racing at Martinsville:
“I like Martinsville overall, it’s a fun short track and very different from anywhere else we go. It’ll leave you flat wore out by the end of 500 laps. We’ve got lights there now and that’s unique and something different than what we’ve experienced before. It’s a tight track, very challenging race and physical race, both inside and outside the track. I thought the first race there last race was really strong for us, the second one was decent, and this will be a good opportunity for us.”
Last Time Out
In the series’ last outing on the Bristol Dirt two weeks ago, Buescher ran much of the race in the top-10, earning stage points in the first stage. But, a flat right rear tire halfway through the second stage set him back as he ultimately went on to finish 14th.
Where They Rank
Buescher is 17th in points entering the eighth race of the 2021 campaign.
On the Car
Fastenal returns to the fold at Roush Fenway for its 11th season in 2021. They 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.
