NASCAR Nationwide Series - DAV 200 Honoring America's Veterans
November 8, 2014 - Phoenix International Raceway
James Buescher, No. 99
The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) invades the 1.0-mile tri-oval of Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) for the DAV 200 this Saturday afternoon. The 24-year-old has seven previous NNS starts at the raceway; in addition to his NNS experience at the track, the Texas native has four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts including one top-10. In the rain-shortened spring race, Buescher and the No. 99 Rheem team were on a different pit cycle and started to move back through the 40-car field and made it up to 12th-place when the skies opened up and halted the scheduled 200-lap race to 168-laps.
My Rheem/RAB Racing team is coming off another tough weekend but last week is behind us and I feel like Phoenix is a place that we can secure another top-10. In the spring race we had a strong run going but the rains came and derailed our chances at securing a top-10. We're bringing the car that we had in practice at Dover and I fell like if we roll off the truck like we did in Dover, we should have a decent car that could get us a great finish. - James Buescher
