NASCAR Nationwide Series - Ford Ecoboost 300
November 15, 2014 - Homestead-Miami Speedway
James Buescher, No. 99
James Buescher and the No. 99 Rheem team head into the Ford Ecoboost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway looking to close out the 2014 season on a high-note. The 24-year-old is no stranger to the Homestead-Miami Speedway. In his seventh season of competing at the highest levels of NASCAR, Buescher has one previous NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start and six NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at the 1.5-mile oval. Buescher made his first career NCWTS start in the fall of 2008 at the South Florida track. RAB Racing and Buescher would like nothing more than to close out the 2014 campaign with the third top-10 of the season.
Homestead-Miami Speedway is a special place to me for a couple different reasons. I made my first career Truck start at this track and I was also able to wrap up the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship at this track. The track leads to some great racing with the multiple-grooves because of the progressive banking. You can run up close to the wall or down next to the line. It gives you some options, just depends on how your car is handling. This year definitely has been challenging for my Rheem team and myself. Through it all, no one has given up and I would like nothing more than to give Rheem, Toyota and my RAB Racing team a solid result to close out the season. I also want to thank Rheem Manufacturing, Inc. for the partnership over the last two years. It's been great representing a world-class brand both on and off the track. - James Buescher
