Kansas Recap: James Buescher came into the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway as the defending race winner and, for a while, it looked like Buescher was going to repeat as race winner. After grabbing his first pole since 2011, Buescher quickly shot off to the lead and collected valuable championship bonus points in the process. With a late-race pit stop, Buescher and the Rheem team elected to take four tires, which put him 20th in the 36-truck field. After some daring restart moves, Buescher worked his way back up to inside the top three. While dealing with lapped traffic and some close competition, Buescher fell back outside the top five to sixth, where he eventually finished. This was Buescher’s first top ten of the 2013 season. Under the Lights: After the season’s second extended break in the schedule, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). The last time the No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team competed at CMS, Buescher went on to lead 10 laps and was running inside the top five before getting collected by a spinning lapped truck. The Turner Scott Motorsports team is very confident heading into CMS after a strong run at Kansas Speedway four weeks ago. Gotta Have a Rheem: The No. 31 TSM entry will once again run the Rheem colors this weekend at CMS. Buescher and TSM hope to build off the last race’s momentum and capture the team’s first victory of the season. Rheem Manufacturing Company (www.rheem.com) is privately held with headquarters in Atlanta. In its 87th year of operation, the company manufactures a full line of high-quality residential and commercial heating and cooling systems; tank, tankless, solar, and heat pump water heaters; swimming pool heaters and commercial boilers throughout North America and world markets. The company’s premium brands, including Raypak, Ruud and Rheem, have been recognized with countless industry and consumer awards for reliability, innovative design and high quality. Rheem, now in its seventh consecutive year as a NASCAR sponsor, is the official heating, cooling and water heating supplier to Turner Scott Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing. Rheem also sponsors RCR’s No. 29 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car driven by Kevin Harvick and the No. 33 NASCAR Nationwide Series car driven by Paul Menard. Return of Honey Badger: For the second time this season, TSM will bring Chassis TSM-214, aka “Honey Badger,” to the track. During its first appearance at Rockingham Speedway, Buescher led 17 laps and was running close to the top five before being collected by a lapped truck. During 2012, “Honey Badger” recorded 4 wins, all on 1.5-mile tracks. Watch and Listen: The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 can be seen live on Friday, May 17th on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90. James Buescher on returning to Charlotte Motor Speedway: “I’m really looking forward to getting back on track this weekend in Charlotte. We had a great run in Kansas, and I hope we can build off that and use our past success on mile-and-a-half tracks to our advantage and put our Rheem Chevrolet Silverado in victory lane. It would definitely mean a lot to our team, as we’ll be able to compete in front of many family and friends that will be at the track.”
