James Buescher on driving at Michigan International Speedway
“This weekend is going to be new for everyone in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS). With the newly repaved surface, the track has a ton of grip, which equates to speed. There is a ton of room to race, so I expect there to be two and sometimes three-wide racing all the way around the track. This kind of racing is great for the fans. We know that we have to give and take all day and keep the fenders on our Amway Chevrolet in order to race for the win. These guys have had a weekend off to take a breather and are all ready to get back to the track. I am looking for great things out of the No. 30 Turner Motorsports team this weekend.
