Chris Buescher - Darlington Advance

Chris Buescher on Darlington:

“I love going back to Darlington. This will be my third time there and I have a blast at every race. It is right at the top of my favorite tracks list and I can’t wait to go out there and learn more about the place.”

 

ADVANCE NOTES

Buescher at Darlington Raceway

  • 2014 will mark Buescher’s third trip to Darlington Raceway. He competed in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at the 1.366 mile track in 2011 and 2013
  • In 2011 Buescher began and finished the race in the 17th spot. In 2013 he started from the 18th position, finishing in 12th. 

The Car

  • Primary chassis RK-805 is a new chassis
  • Backup chassis RK-777 last served as a backup at Texas this season. It was last run as a primary at Kentucky in Sept. 2013 by the No. 60 team of Travis Pastrana and was involved in a wreck on lap 59 of the 200 lap race

FORD Mustang 50th Anniversary

  • The first Ford Mustang was unveiled on April 17th, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. Now, 50 years later, Ford is celebrating the Mustang’s golden jubilee by unleashing a new generation of the legendary car. 
  • The Mustang is Ford’s official car of the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and this Friday Buescher will be behind the wheel of a specially designed 50th Anniversary Mustang when he tries to tame “The Lady in Black.” 
  • In the coming weeks, watch out for a special Social Media campaign highlighting our fans’ greatest #RFRMustangMoments, ending with one of them winning a hood just like the one on the car Buescher races at Darlington.
