Buescher on racing at the ROVAL:
“We’ve been up and down at road courses this season, but we still feel decent about where we’re at as a whole on those tracks. This race is always about survival and hanging around, and with the playoff picture the way it is, you have to be smart about staying out of trouble of those in desperation mode. We’re looking forward to a good day Sunday with Fastenal back on board, and a bright pink number and window net supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month.”
Last Time Out
Buescher brought home a sixth-place finish in Monday’s rain-shortened Talladega race. He was the only stage winner of the afternoon, and overall led seven laps in the Violet Defense Ford Mustang.
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.
Fastenal will feature top suppliers Panduit, Honeywell, Milwaukee, Mechanix Wear and Shurtape on Buescher’s Mustang as he competes this weekend. For more information on these suppliers, visit Fastenal.com, and stay up-do-date on social @FastenalRacing, @Fastenal.
Roush Fenway will also run some variation of pink on its Ford Mustangs throughout the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This weekend, the No. 17 both on the door panels and the roof will be bright pink. Buescher is also participating in the pink window net initiative through the Kurt Busch Foundation, which also supports awareness throughout the month.
