James Buescher on driving at Charlotte Motor Speedway
“Charlotte [Motor Speedway] 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. I think our ABF Chevrolet will be strong this weekend. 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!
