James Buescher on returning home to Texas:

“Texas is a fun place for me. That race track is pretty special to me more so than just the racing — I basically grew up there. It’s got a lot of history for me and my family and my personal life as well as my career. My RAB Racing / Rheem team is bringing a new car out this weekend and it would be a really special place to have a solid run and maybe get our first win.”
