The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) makes its second of two trips to the “Blue Grass” state’s 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway. After taking a week off to continue his quest for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) championship, James Buescher will hop behind the wheel of the No. 30 Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E) Chevrolet Impala for Saturday afternoon’s race. In Buescher’s two previous starts at the Kentucky Speedway, he has finished in the top-fifteen both times and completed all but one lap. Buescher’s average starting position is 15.0 with his average finish bettering that at 12.0. Buescher and team look to add to the trend of nothing less than a top-ten finish with chassis TMS-326.

Welcome Back… Turner Motorsports partner Fraternal Order of Eagles returns to the No. 30 Chevrolet Impala this weekend in Kentucky. F.O.E celebrated in victory lane with Buescher at Daytona International Speedway during the first race this season. The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization, which unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope. The F.O.E. was founded in 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” Presently F.O.E. membership is almost one million strong, with more than 1,700 local aeries in the U.S. and Canada. Women’s auxiliaries total more than 1,500, with more than 335,000 members. Among its many accomplishments the F.O.E. counts the founding of Mother’s Day and esteemed members include seven former U.S. Presidents.

Previous Race Recap…Last week, the Turner Motorsports team saw Alex Bowman make his NNS debut behind the wheel of the No. 30, posting a decisive top-20 finish for the rookie. Buescher’s last NNS start came at the 0.75 D-shaped Richmond oval.  After gambling with a two tire stop, Buescher continued to stalk the top-ten, coming up just shy and finishing in the eleventh position on the lead lap.

This Week’s Impala…The No. 30 team will unload chassis TMS-326 this Saturday at Kentucky Speedway. Buescher has raced this chassis at Charlotte, Michigan and Kentucky, posting top-10 finishes in all three events.  

Buescher on this weekend’s NNS race at Kentucky: “Kentucky has always been one of my favorite tracks. I like the style of racing, plus the fans are great! In our last start here in June, we had a great overall weekend with a win in the NCWTS and  a top-ten finish in the Nationwide car and that just adds to my confidence of returning to Kentucky Speedway. If we can just get a good balance on the car and run our own race, we feel we should be able to post another top-ten finish.”
