Dover Recap: With a never-give-up attitude, James Buescher and the Rheem Crew overcame major adversity at Dover International Speedway last weekend. During the two practice sessions on Thursday afternoon, the Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) crew made many wholesale adjustments to their No. 31 chassis in an effort to tighten up the Rheem Chevrolet Silverado. With a new setup in the truck for qualifying, Buescher was still too loose and, on his second qualifying lap, lost control of the Rheem truck and slapped the outside retaining wall. The damage was too excessive to repair and forced his TSM team to unload the backup Silverado. During the 200-lap race, Buescher was forced to make his way up from the rear of the field and at one point found himself running inside the top three. As the race went on, the handling on the truck went away, and Buescher and the Rheem team were able to salvage a top-15 finish. Returning Home: Buescher returns to his home track, Texas Motor Speedway (TMS), with the goal of becoming the first driver to win on all surfaces at TMS. Cutting his teeth in racing at TMS, Buescher has already visited victory lane on the short tracks, the dirt track and the road course. The only surface Buescher has yet to win on at TMS is the 1.5-mile oval. After having promising races at TMS, Buescher is looking to close the deal and get his back-to-back championship goal back on track with a win at TMS. Oklahoma Bound: James, along with his wife Kris, will travel to Moore, Oklahoma this Wednesday, June 5, to assist with cleanup and rebuilding efforts throughout the community that was hit by devastating tornadoes last week. This tragedy hits close to home for the Buescher Family as James’ brother Michael lives in nearby Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Rely on Ruud: This week’s race at TMS was originally planned to be the first Ruud event of the season, but unforeseen circumstances requiring a backup truck forced an early debut last weekend at Dover International Speedway. Ruud will be back onboard this weekend at Texas in front of a large contingent of Ruud supporters. Ruud, part of the Rheem family of quality brands, provides heating, cooling and water heating products for residential and light commercial use. Founded more than 100 years ago by the inventor of the water heater, Edwin Ruud, Rheem acquired the Ruud Company in 1960. Today, Rheem continues developing Ruud products in its tradition of quality, reliability and durability. Chassis Info: Turner Scott Motorsports will debut a brand-new chassis this coming weekend at TMS. TSM-601 will hit the track for the first time during practice on Thursday afternoon. Now Appearing: James Buescher will have numerous appearances around the state of Texas this week, with the first events coming at Texas Mesquite Grill in Katy on Monday and Tuesday from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. CDT. Buescher will stop by Century A/C Supply in Houston on Tuesday morning from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. CDT. Buescher will also be featured at the NASCAR autograph session at TMS on Friday afternoon from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. CDT. For more information about these events, please visit JamesBuescher.com. Watch and Listen: The WinStar World Casino 400 can be seen live on Friday, June 7 on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 8:30 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 Texas Motor Speedway: “I’m really looking forward to returning to my home track this weekend. We had a rough weekend at Dover, but I am confident that my Ruud team can rebound from that. I don’t see a better way to get back on track for our championship hunt than finally getting that elusive win at Texas.” -Turner Scott Motorsports PR
