Chris Buescher - Texas Advance

“Anytime that I get to go home and race is nice. I really like Texas Motor Speedway and have run thousands of laps around the smaller tracks there. I have one NNS race under my belt at Texas and think we can improve upon that run this weekend in our Roush Performance Mustang.”-Chris Buescher on Texas

Scott Graves on Texas:

“After an off weekend, Chris and the team are really looking forward to getting back to the track at Texas.  Chris raced at Texas once last year so we have some notes to work off of and we’ve worked hard on our Texas car to get everything we can out of it.  Texas is fast but lap times will fall off pretty quick over a tire run so we want a good short run car but also one that will hold on over a long run.  We definitely want to put on a good show in front of Chris’s home crowd.”
