No. 31 Fraternal Order of Eagles Chevrolet News and Notes
Back In Kentucky…James Buescher and the No. 31 Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) Chevrolet Silverado returns to Kentucky Speedway for their second of two trips in the 2012 season. On Friday, Buescher and the team look to get back to their winning ways and sweep the season’s Kentucky races. There is no better place to accomplish this than the intermediate 1.5-mile oval. Buescher comes in with a stellar record, completing all but two laps at the track, with an average finish of eighth.
The Eagle has landed… Turner Motorsports welcomes back Fraternal Order of Eagles to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). For the first time this season, F.O.E. will be featured on the No. 31 truck at Kentucky Speedway. The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization, which unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope. The F.O.E. was founded in 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” Presently, F.O.E. membership is almost one million strong, with more than 1,700 local aeries in the U.S. and Canada. Women’s auxiliaries total more than 1,500, with more than 335,000 members. Among its many accomplishments, the F.O.E. counts the founding of Mother’s Day and esteemed members include seven former U.S. Presidents.
This Week’s Silverado… The No. 31 Fraternal Order of Eagles Chevrolet Silverado team will unload chassis TMS-214. Buescher will pilot the chassis that has brought home three victories in 2012 as well as a second at Pocono Raceway.
Real Horsepower… Prior to hitting the track at Kentucky Speedway, James Buescher and teammates Miguel Paludo, Nelson Piquet Jr., Justin Allgaier and Brad Sweet will head to Churchill Downs, home of horse racing’s most prestigious event and the first jewel in the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the Kentucky Derby. The drivers will tour the 137-year-old facility which houses and trains world-class thoroughbreds year-round in addition to hosting live horse racing in spring and fall meets.
Last Race Recap… Buescher and the No. 31 Turner Motorsports Chevrolet team rolled into the state of the art short track of Iowa Speedway. After being a truck to beat in the early going, a late-race spin ended Buescher’s promising run, posting a 17th-place finish.
Watch LIVE… The Kentucky 201 can be seen on Friday, September 21st on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 7 p.m. EST. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 90.
Buescher on returning to Iowa Speedway-
“After last week’s disappointing finish at Iowa, I am really looking forward to getting back on track at Kentucky where I have had a good deal of success. I feel that the intermediate tracks suit this team the best. There is no better place to make a statement that with a season sweep in front of the great fans at Kentucky.”
