by December 13, 2013 0 comments

2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion, James Buescher will move full time to the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2014. Buescher, who drove for Turner Scott Motorsports in 2013, will join forces with RAB Racing. The team has announced that they’ve signed Buescher to a multi year deal.

“My first couple of years in NASCAR have been a dream come true, and I can’t thank Turner Scott Motorsports enough for the opportunity they have given me to develop my skills,” said Buescher. “I am very excited to be able to take the next step in my career, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the opportunity that RAB Racing is giving me to run full time in the Nationwide Series. I am really excited to get back behind the wheel of a Toyota and I am looking forward to driving their cars next year. RAB Racing is a solid organization with great people; I can’t wait to get to work with them.”

Buescher will have veteran crew chief, Chris Rice on top of the pit box in Daytona. Rice led the team in 2013 to two poles, two top-5 finishes and six top-10 finshes in 33 races.

“Everyone at RAB Racing is honored to have James come on board to drive our No. 99 Toyota Camry,” said RAB Racing owner Robby Benton. “James has a tremendous amount of talent and experience, and we feel like he will take our program to the next level. I’m looking forward to what will likely be a very special season, not only for our team, but all of our partners as well. This is a great addition to the Toyota family, and I’m proud James saw the strength in our team to further his career.”

Buescher is coming off a year in the Camping World Truck Series with two wins, four top-5 finishes and 14 top-10 finishes in the 22 race season. He also won two Keystone Light Pole awards. Buescher finsihed third in the truck championship, a year after winning the title in 2012.

Buescher will take the seat that Alex Bowman piloted in the 2013 Nationwide Series. Bowman is currently without a ride for 2014.

RAB Racing will announce sponsorship in the near future. The first NASCAR Nationwide Series race is scheduled for February 22nd at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
