MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 17, 2013) - Reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) champion and past NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) winner James Buescher will attempt to make his first NNS start of 2013 in the Johnsonville Sausage 200 at Road America on June 22nd.
Buescher captured his first NNS win in February of 2012 in the season opener at famed Daytona International Speedway. Buescher went on to race a total of 20 events during 2012 and had two top-five and eight top-10 finishes with an average finish of 13.4. Buescher has 54 career NNS starts heading into Road America next weekend.
Buescher goes to Road America with limited experience on road courses, with just one road course start in the NNS at Watkins Glen in 2011. Buescher took part in an open test session last month at Virginia International Raceway. Buescher looks to gain road course experience for the upcoming NCWTS race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on September 1. Crew chief Michael Shelton and his NCWTS crew will come over and call the shots for Buescher in the NNS race at Road America.
The Johnsonville Sausage 200 can be seen live on ESPN at 5:00 p.m. EDT on June 22. The event can also be heard on SiriusXM Radio, channel 90 and MRN Radio.
