Chicagoland Recap…The Texas native, James Buescher started the Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 at Chicagoland Speedway from the 17th position. Right from when the green flag released the 40-car field Buescher and the No. 99 Rheem team was struggling with a tight-handling Camry. Crew chief Matt Lucas and the Rheem crew got multiple opportunities throughout the afternoon to adjust on their Toyota, however it wasn’t until late in the scheduled 200-lap race that the handling began to turn in a positive matter for the 24-year-old Buescher. During team’s last scheduled pit stop of the race, the RAB Racing team made a call to take only two-tires and fuel while some of the field took four or no tires at all. The stop would vault Buescher up to the 14th running position. After the restart, a yellow flag was quickly displayed and Buescher radioed to the crew that the balance of the No. 99 Rheem Camry was much better on four fresh tires rather than just the two. Buescher eventually slipped back to the 18th-place where he would eventually finish the Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300.
Chassis Info…RAB Racing will bring chassis No. 057 with them to Kentucky Speedway. This particular chassis was last raced last weekend at Chicagoland Speedway with RAB Racing teammate Daniel Suarez behind the wheel. Suarez was able to drive the No.29 Camry to a 15th-place finish.
