James Buescher and the No. 31 head out to the desert for the second to last event on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedule. This will mark the first time the NCWTS has returned to Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) since the track went through a transformation in 2011. Start Positive, Stay Positive…Buescher and the No.31 Turner Motorsports Chevrolet team welcome back the Exide Batteries colors in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series semi-final event of 2012 at Phoenix International Raceway. Exide Technologies, with operations in more than 80 countries, is one of the world’s largest producers and recyclers of lead-acid batteries. The company’s four global business groups — Transportation Americas, Transportation Europe and Rest of World, Industrial Energy Americas and Industrial Energy Europe and Rest of World — provide a comprehensive range of stored electrical energy products and services for industrial and transportation applications. Chassis Debut…The No. 31 Exide Batteries Chevrolet Silverado team will unload a brand new chassis, TMS-221. Phoenix will mark this chassis’ first race. Last Race Recap…After looking like one of the trucks to beat on the 1.5-mile oval at Texas Motor Speedway, Buescher was a victim of an eventful restart mid-way through the 147-lap event. The No.31 received considerable damage that altered the way the truck handled the rest of the race. Buescher continued to battle for an 11th-place finish and maintains the series points lead heading into PIR. Look Your Best at PIR… When the gates open for the weekend at Phoenix International Raceway, Great Clips stylists will have their scissors in hand and will be offering free haircuts to race attendees. Just stop by the Great Clips display! Donations will be accepted with all money raised going to Project H3. Project H3 was established to provide aid for long-term, vulnerable homeless veterans and their families. For more information see their website: http://www.azceh.org/project-h3 Watch LIVE…The Lucas Oil 150 can be seen live on Friday, November 9th 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 Phoenix International Raceway…“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Phoenix [International Raceway] this week. Last time there we had a rough weekend but this team has put that weekend behind us. I feel that all teams are on an even playing field heading into this weekend with the track going through a reconfiguration and resurface since the last time we raced here. To better prepare myself for this weekend, I’ve been watching a lot of film of previous races. We will be unloading a brand new chassis next weekend in hopes to put Exide Batteries back into victory lane and give us more separation in the points.”
