Buescher Drives Fastenal Ford to 10th Place Finish in First Duel Race
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 13, 2020) — In a rain delayed opening Duel Thursday night at Daytona, Chris Buescher crossed the line 10th in his debut race behind the wheel of the No. 17 Fastenal Ford Mustang.
The 2015 Xfinity Series champion then navigated all the way through the field to the sixth before the field stacked up with under ten laps to go and he was forced three-wide. With an emphasis on saving the Fastenal Ford for Sunday’s race, Buescher kept the Mustang clean and brought the car home with a 10th-place finish.
Buescher ultimately finished tenth and will start 19th in Sunday’s Daytona 500. Race coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. EST on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90.
