Reigning Champ Buescher Looks For Big Turnaround

No NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion has been able to win back-to-back titles.

Right now, it looks like James Buescher will extend that record unless his No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports Chevrolet team executes a big turnaround.

Buescher has yet to post a top-10 finish in the season’s first three races. He sits eighth in current standings, 42 points behind leader Johnny Sauter following his 14th-place finish at Rockingham Speedway.

This could be Buescher’s bounce-back week. The defending winner of Saturday’s SFP 250 turned promise into performance in 2012. The victory was the first of four for the Texan – and each came on a 1.5-mile intermediate-style race track.

“There’s no question the season hasn’t started off the way our Rheem team was hoping,” said Buescher, whose Turner Scott teammate Kyle Larson won at Rockingham – just as Kasey Kahne did for the organization a year ago. “It’s not because we haven’t run well.

“I feel like we are always in contention for a win but we’ve just been bitten by some bad luck so far and don’t have the end result to show for it.”

A 20th-place qualifying effort damaged Buescher’s chances at Martinsville. He qualified in the top three at Daytona and Rockingham and led both races before settling for top-15 placings.

“I think heading to Kansas this weekend couldn’t come at a better time for this team,” he said.
