NASCAR Truck Series - Kroger 250
April 6, 2013 - Martinsville Speedway
James Buescher, No. 31
Last time Buescher and the TSM team visited the Martinsville short track, the team battled back from 22nd running position, one lap down, to finish in the top five and gain the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) points lead. Just a few short weeks ago, Buescher and his TSM teammates spent two days at Martinsville Speedway testing and tuning their new short-track package. The team came back from the successful test and will be implementing new ideas for this weekend's 250-lap race.
I'm glad that we are finally getting back to racing; everyone is itching to get going again. All the guys in the shop have been staying busy during this break building new trucks and prepping for test sessions. We had a great test a couple weeks ago at Martinsville, where I feel the whole organization learned a lot. Martinsville hasn't typically been my best track, but recently we had some good runs there. I'm looking forward to getting back behind the wheel to try and bring home a solid finish for the Rheem team. - James Buescher
