Chris Buescher First Visit To New Hampshire Motor Speedway| Advance
Chris Buescher on New Hampshire:
“Our Ford EcoBoost Mustang should do well at New Hampshire this weekend. This team has had short track success lately and this weekend should be no exception. I want to get another top-ten finish this weekend and this will be the type of track that our No.60 team will be good at.”
- Chris Buescher hit the track at Daytona International Speedway (DIS) for his first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race at the two-and-a-half mile track. The Roush Fenway Racing driver had a fast No.60 Roush Performance Parts Mustang and was able to hold his ground within the lead pack after starting in third, running inside the top ten for much of the evening. After avoiding trouble during a late-race caution, Buescher was stuck in the back of the pack without enough time left to make up ground, but fought hard until the last second of a green-white-checkered finish to earn a 12th- place result.
