LEBANON, Tennessee (August 7, 2008) - - Win-Tron Racing (WTR) announced today that NASCAR Nationwide Series rookie James Buescher will pilot the No. 32 Red Line Oil Dodge in Saturday’s TOYOTA ARCA 150 at Nashville Superspeedway.
Buescher returns to the seat of a Win-Tron Racing entry for a third time in 2008 this weekend. The Plano , Texas native made two ARCA RE/MAX Series starts earlier this season at Iowa Speedway and most recently at Cayuga Motor Speedway in June.
Buescher in a Win-Tron Racing entry etched his name into the ARCA RE/MAX Series record books last season by becoming the youngest winner in series history when Buescher in his inaugural ARCA debut at USA International Speedway started on the outside pole and led 34 laps en route to his first career victory.
“I’m looking forward to getting back in the No. 32 this weekend,” said Buescher. “I’ve never raced at Nashville Superspeedway but I’m confident that Mike (Chaffee, crew chief) will have a good setup that we can adjust from and put ourselves in contention Saturday afternoon.”
Last year at Nashville Superspeedway, Win-Tron Racing enjoyed a stout third place qualifying effort with Michael Annett at the helm. Annett in his first start at the demanding concrete racetrack would show maturity through the 113-lap event that would guide him to a very respectable eighth place effort.
Win-Tron Racing’s Nate Thiesse offered on the team’s Nashville return; “We’re back in the heart of Country music and I hope we can acquire our own record album this weekend. We’re glad to have James aboard for one of the most prestige events of the year. We’re bringing a good car and I think with the results of the open test, we’ll easily find ourselves in the top-10 this weekend.”
Buescher replaces Dominick Casola who was originally entered for Saturday’s event. The team will announce their driver in time for the first of two events on the dirt at Illinois State Fairgrounds next week.
Entering Nashville , Win-Tron Racing sits 15th in the ARCA RE/MAX Series owner’s standings after 13 races. 80 credits separate car owner Kevin Cywinski from the 14th position held by Cathy Venturini (No. 25). The team maintained their position from their last outing at Pocono Raceway where Dominick Casola recorded a finish of 21st.
