NASCAR Nationwide Series - History 300
May 24, 2014 - Charlotte Motor Speedway
James Buescher, No. 99
While Charlotte may be a "home" track for many NASCAR teams and drivers, to the Texas-native James Buescher, this weekend's race is just another one on the road. Concord, North Carolina-based RAB Racing however will have plenty of support from family and friends as the team shop sits just five miles from the 1.5-mile quad-oval of Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). Buescher comes into the 11th race of the season sitting eighth in points, just 13 points out of seventh. Buescher has four career NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) starts at CMS and has recorded two top-10 finishes with a best finish of seventh-place coming in 2012.
Charlotte is becoming more and more challenging. The cool thing is you can move around and run top, bottom, middle -- wherever you need to in order to get your handling right and run well. It's a cool place -- it's one of my favorite mile-and-a-half tracks to go to. A little bit tighter corners than the other mile-and-a-halves and a little bit less racing room, but you can use all of it. You can go all the way up to the wall, you can run all the way down touching the apron. It's a cool place and the middle of the afternoon it's really slick in turns three and four with the way the sun is positioned. Night racing there is a lot of fun. Everything picks up -- grip level picks up and the track is really fast. Another thing is that all the crew can bring out their families and friends and it's a local race for all the crews. Not for me, but it's a local race for everybody else and it's cool to see everybody get to bring out their family and friends and let them see what they do every week. - James Buescher
