ABF Racing Team Heads to Charlotte

When the No. 30 Chevrolet Impala arrives at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend, the car and crew will be wearing ABF green and yellow. Once again, the No. 30 ABF Chevy will be driven by James Buescher.

“Charlotte is a huge race for all the race teams.  With almost all the teams within a 20-mile radius of the track, this is considered everyone’s home track. The crew members bring their families out to see what we do every week.  It puts a little added pressure on us to do well.  We all want to put on a great show for the fans as well as all the families that sacrifice so much to allow us to do what we love, which is race,” said Buescher.

“I think our ABF Chevrolet will be strong this weekend,” he continued. “Our mile-and-a-half program has been strong all year, and we expect more of the same this weekend. I am excited to have ABF back on the car.  They have been such a great partner over the years and I am honored to be wearing their colors this weekend.  Hopefully we can get them back in victory lane on Saturday afternoon!”

The No. 30 ABF Chevrolet Impala team will bring chassis TMS-326 to the Charlotte Motor Speedway for Saturday’s 300-mile race.  The TMS-326 is a brand new chassis to the No. 30 ABF Chevrolet team.

Buescher has been busy in the first quarter of the NASCAR season.  He has competed in every NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race scoring one victory (Kansas Speedway) and three top-three finishes behind the wheel of his No. 31 Silverado. He sits fourth in the series standings, only 18 points behind the series leader Justin Lofton. The 22-year old driver has also notched a NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) victory (Daytona).  Buescher has competed in all but two NNS races in 2012, collecting one top-five and three top-10 results with an average finish of 10.1.
