Chris Buescher and all but one driver battling at the front of the pack yearned for one last caution.
The lone exception? Chase Elliott, who, fully fueled, had powered to a commanding lead and near-certain win in Sunday’s NASCAR XFINITY Series 3M 250 at Iowa Speedway.
Although he's primarily an Xfinity driver for Roush-Fenway Racing, Chris Buescher has shown some promise in the five Sprint Cup starts he's made in 2015. He finished 20th in his debut at Fontana, but in his next four races in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford he had three top-25 finishes with a low point of 30th at Texas.
The racing action continues this weekend as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and XFINITY Series head to Texas Motor Speedway. The Camping World Truck Series is off for the next few weeks but will return May 8 at Kansas.
This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup, XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series travel to Atlanta Motor Speedway. Saturday features a doubleheader beginning with the XFINITY Series Hisense 250 race at 2 p.m. followed by the Camping World Truck Series Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at 5:30 p.m. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series closes out the racing weekend Sunday at 1 p.m. on FOX.
Scott Lagasse Jr. is not only doing double duty on the track at Daytona, running the Camping World Truck and the Xfinity Series, but he is also doing double duty off the track as cyclist and new father.
NASCAR kicks off its season this weekend culminating with the 57th annual Daytona 500 Sunday at Daytona International Speedway. Below is a complete list of on track activities for the Sprint Cup, XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series plus scheduled press conferences for Wednesday, Feb. 18 – Sunday, Feb. 22.
