Buescher Expresses Pride Following Second-Place Finish at Phoenix

The commencement of the 2024 NASCAR Cup season proved challenging for Buescher, following his impressive performance in the previous season’s finale.

As the season progressed, Buescher encountered difficulties, managing only one top-10 finish and enduring a wreck at the Las Vegas race the weekend before, which relegated him to 23rd place in the series standings.

During Sunday’s race, Buescher was part of the group of teams that opted to pit on lap 208 out of 312, coinciding with one of the final caution periods of the race.

Subsequently, he found himself in the position of conserving fuel over the remaining 104 laps while navigating through the field. With 10 laps to go, Buescher climbed to the second position, ultimately finishing behind Christopher Bell who secured the victory.

Reflecting on the race, Buescher expressed his satisfaction with the outcome, stating, “That’s huge. We’ve been able to lead races at any point in all three races leading up to this. We didn’t quite get there today but certainly a great finish. Really proud of everybody.”

Acknowledging the team’s resilience following the previous week’s challenges, Buescher emphasized their collective effort, asserting their determination to secure a victory as a unified team.

Despite his fuel strategy and uncertainty about catching up to Bell, who led for the final 41 laps, Buescher commended the performance of the competition, particularly the dominant run by the Toyotas.

Looking ahead, Buescher remained optimistic about the team’s potential for improvement, recognizing areas for enhancement in car performance and strategy, while expressing confidence in their ability to contend for victories in future races.

Buescher lauded the team’s perseverance and applauded their efforts in securing a second-place finish, reflecting on his ability to conserve just enough fuel to push for a strong finish.
