“This is my second time racing in the Nationwide Series at Atlanta, so I’m hoping I can build off of last year’s experience. We have Michelangelo and the Ninja Turtles on the car this week, which looks awesome. We’ve had fast Mustangs and solid finishes the last few weeks, and I’d really like to keep that streak going.”
Buescher at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) marks Chris Buescher’s second start at the 1.54-mile track. In his previous start at AMS, Buescher started 19th and finished 13th in just his eighth overall NNS start overall.
The No. 60 team unloads Chassis RK-805 this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the fourth time this season. This chassis has raced at Texas Motor Speedway, Dover International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway, finishing 27th, 11th and eighth, respectively.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Buescher will race one of two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fords this weekend at AMS. Michelangelo’s face will appear on the hood of the No. 60 Mustang.
Also at AMS, fans of all ages will be able to enjoy end-of-the-summer activities chock-full of ‘Turtle power’. The Nickelodeon Kids Zone, located in the Fan Zone adjacent to the main entrance to the speedway, will offer free family fun with appearances from Buescher and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumed characters, a TMNT photo station, micro-stock car racing, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles obstacle course, as well as a Turtles-themed cooling lounge and tattoo station. Nick Radio’s J Boogie will be broadcasting from the Nick Radio DJ booth and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumed characters will visit the Nickelodeon Kids Zone throughout race day and various surprise locations all weekend.
Nickelodeon is currently airing the second season of the CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Episodes currently air on Nickelodeon on Friday’s at 7 p.m., with season three set to debut this fall.
Buescher fought his way to a hard-earned top-10 finish last Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway. The rookie of the year contender overcame an ill-handling race car and avoided a late multi-car accident by only a few centimeters to earn his ninth top-10 finish of the season.
