Bio

Heading into his fifth full season in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020, Chris Buescher, a product of Roush Fenway’s driver development program, returns to the team that he led to a NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) title in 2015.

Heading into his fifth full season in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020, Chris Buescher, a product of Roush Fenway’s driver development program, returns to the team that he led to a NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) title in 2015.

Buescher first joined Roush Fenway as a development driver in 2009, winning the 2012 ARCA Series championship in a partnership with Roulo Brothers Racing, before making his NXS debut for Roush Fenway in relief of Trevor Bayne in 2011. He transitioned to full-time action in the NXS in 2014, and in 2015 brought home Jack Roush’s eighth NASCAR Championship, dominating the series while leading the NXS standings for 24 consecutive weeks.

The native of Prosper, Texas, is coming off a three-year stint in the No. 37 Cup car for JTG Daugherty Racing, where he earned 10 combined top-10 results. Before his time at JTG, Buescher spent one season in the No. 34 Cup entry for Front Row Motorsports, where he qualified for the 2016 NASCAR Playoffs via his win at Pocono Raceway that August.

Buescher had his best season to date in 2019 where he improved significantly on his overall average finish as well as his end of the season points ranking. He ended 2019 20th in the points standings, four spots better than a year prior, and also tabbed an average finish of 17.8, more than three positions improved from the previous season.

Before entering the scene in NASCAR’s premier series, Buescher collected 36 top-10s, 16 top-fives and three wins in the NXS from 2011-15 in just 74 races. In 2015 alone he earned 20 top-10 results, 11 of which were top-fives, en route to the title. He earned his first career victory at Mid-Ohio in 2014 and finished that season seventh in points with 14 overall top-10s.

Buscher spent five combined seasons in the ARCA Menards series running a total of 57 events. He finished top-10 or better in an impressive 75 percent of those races with 43 overall top-10s, 33 of which were inside the top-five. Overall he won 10 ARCA events and claimed five poles, and at the time was one of only six drivers in ARCA history to win on all track types (Superspeedways, Short Tracks, Dirt Tracks, Road Courses).

He ended the 2012 ARCA season as the Champion, becoming the youngest in history at age 19, completing every single lap of competition that season. He won four events in 2012 and finished top-10 in 16-of-19 races with an average finish of 5.9.

A year prior, Buescher earned 2011 ARCA Series Rookie of the Year honors and was the Hoosier Superspeedway Challenger winner, where he claimed three wins and an additional 16 top-10 results. In 2009 – his entry into the ARCA Series – Buescher became the youngest pole winner in the 57-year history of the series and went on to earn five top-10s.

Buescher’s introduction into racing began at an early age, where he began competing in motocross at age 6. He earned 40 victories in Motocross before transitioning to four wheels and a roll cage. From there he entered the Bandalero scene, where he picked up more than 50 INEX Bandalero wins including the Bandalero Nationals in 2004 at age 12.

He became the youngest Pro Winner in INEX Legends Cars in 2005 at age 13 and earned more than 100 wins in Legends cars. Buescher also got some seat time in the ASA West Coast Trucks, where he picked up three wins and two runner-up results in 2008.

Buescher and his wife Emma married Easter weekend in 2018. Together they are avid animal lovers and have three rescue dogs – Cooper, Addie and Dozer – and also have one rescue cat, Baden. Buescher’s favorite hobby is riding ATVs and in particular, he loves mud bogging. He also enjoys mountain biking as part of his physical training, and also spends time fishing.
