First Visit To Kentucky For Chris Buescher | Advance

Chris Buescher on Kentucky:

“We just got done running our morning test session at Kentucky and so far it’s been smooth. It’s my first time here and it’s a fun track. Kentucky is very rough but we are getting the hang of it. Our Ford EcoBoost Mustang should be fast for Friday night.”

ADVANCE NOTES

Road America Recap

 

  • The Roush Fenway Racing driver started in the ninth-position and faced early adversity after flat spotting and having to pit for left front tire trouble, followed immediately by a pass through penalty for speeding upon exit. The team reached as high as the second-spot and generated a fuel strategy that almost got them to the end, until a late caution required a final stop, placing the No. 60 Roush Performance Parts Mustang in 18th at the end of the day.
