James Buescher and the No. 31 team head to Atlanta Motor Speedway for a Friday-night race under the lights. The Texan has two previous starts at the Georgia quad-oval, completing 100% of the scheduled laps in both of those events on his way to earning one top-10 and an average finish of 12th.

Intermediate Interest…Turner Motorsports has been the team to beat at the intermediate tracks in 2012, earning five wins in eight NCWTS races at tracks one to two miles in length. Buescher is responsible for three of the five Turner victories, all three of which came at 1.5-mile tracks (Kansas Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway).

All Wired Up… Turner Motorsports welcomes Central Wire to its roster of partners as they make their on-track debut in Atlanta. Central Wire manufactures quality stainless steel wire, nickel alloy wire, and related products in alloys tailored to meet specific customer requirements. With manufacturing locations strategically located throughout North America Central Wire provides the widest range of stainless steel, nickel alloy, copper alloy, brass alloy, bronze alloy and zinc alloy wire products for the North American and global marketplace.

This Week’s Silverado…The No. 31 Central Wire Chevrolet Silverado team will unload chassis TMS-220 this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is a brand-new truck and will hit the track for the first time this Friday.

Last Race Recap…Buescher and the No. 31 Turner Motorsports Chevrolet team rolled into the half-mile high-banked Bristol Motor Speedway sporting the blue and gold colors of sponsor Exide Batteries and made it through the overtime race unscathed, finishing in the seventh position.

Watch LIVE…The Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200 can be seen live on Friday, August 31st on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. EST. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Buescher on returning to Atlanta Motor Speedway : “I’m really looking forward to Atlanta. It’s a fast, wide-open racetrack. It has a lot of grooves, so you can run anywhere from the white line all the way up to the wall. Tires wear out fast there, so there’s a lot of slipping and sliding. I’m obviously really excited about getting back to a mile-and-a-half racetrack; Turner Motorsports as a whole has run so well at the intermediates this year. We’re bringing a new truck this week, and I have a feeling it’s going to be even better than the one I got all three of my wins in.”
