James Buescher looks for win on big Texas track
Thursday, November 1, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- James Buescher has won on four different courses at Texas Motor Speedway. Now he's looking for a victory on the main track.
With three races left in the NASCAR Truck Series, Buescher heads to the 112-mile high-banked Texas track Friday night as the points leader.
Buescher, who is from nearby Plano, has won on the dirt track, one-fifth mile track, quarter-mile front-stretch layout and the road course at Texas. Now he's back for his eighth try on the big track, where he has twice been a pole sitter but has finished no better than sixth.
He's been close to winning before. There was contact late in June with Dillon when they were front-runners. He was running third late in last fall's race when he ran out of fuel.
