Team: No. 16 Ford Mustang Crew Chief: Seth Barbour Chassis: RK-747 – Last raced at Texas Motor Speedway Buescher at Charlotte Motor Speedway: Chris Buescher will attempt to make his first start at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS) in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) this weekend. The 20-year-old driver has competed in three races this season and has been the highest finishing Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustang in each of those races. Buescher finished seventh at Bristol Motor Speedway, 17th at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) and 12th at Darlington Raceway. The Car: The No. 16 team brings chassis RK-747 to the track for the second time this season. This chassis last drove to a 17th-place finish at TMS in April, with Buescher behind the wheel. Red, White and Blue: In honor of the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday, the No. 16 Ford Mustang will run a patriotic red, white and blue paint scheme. Up to Speed: In 2011, Buescher made NNS starts at Richmond and Darlington, finishing 17th in both events. In 2012 he participated in the full ARCA schedule, earning the ARCA Championship with four wins, 12 top-fives and 16 top-10s in the 19 race season. Overall, in five seasons of ARCA Racing, Buescher has made 54 starts, with one Championship, nine wins, 32 top-fives and 42 top-10s. The driver of the No. 16 Ford Mustang teams up with Seth Barbour, who will serve as Crew Chief. Barbour most recently worked as an Engineer on the RFR No. 6 team. Recapping Darlington: In his third start of the 2013 season and second NNS start at Darlington Raceway, Buescher piloted the No. 16 B-Strong Ford Mustang to 12th. Buescher on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway: “Charlotte Motor Speedway is a new race track for me. I have a lot to learn in these cars, so I am excited to have extra practice on Wednesday. I want to go to Charlotte and have a solid top-10 run. It’s a challenge to stay consistent when we aren’t running every week, but so far this team has done a very nice job.”
