Shortly before qualifying started for the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300, the RAB Racing No. 99 Rheem team noticed something was a miss in their motor. The Rheem team got approval from NASCAR and opted to change the motor just before the qualifying session started. For the first time this year, the Rheem team made it into the final round of Knockout qualifying. Also in the process, Buescher posted his best qualifying effort in a NASCAR Nationwide Series car at Bristol Motor Speedway, with an eighth place starting position. When the green flag released the 40-car field, the leader wasted no time in setting a feverish pace. On lap 53 Buescher radioed to his crew that his Rheem Camry was tight through the middle on both ends of the track. Buescher would end up settling into the 13th position during the opening half of the race. It was on lap 66 that the leader caught the No. 99 and put Buescher a lap down. On lap 96 the race saw its third yellow flag of the day and Buescher brought his No. 99
