Chris Buescher and the No. 37 BUSH'S Beans team survived 500 miles on one of NASCAR's oldest pavements while fighting a tight handling race car and steering issues on Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Buescher took the checkered flag in the 24th position.
CHRIS BUESCHER QUOTES:
"It was a long, hard-fought race today in the No. 37 BUSH’s Beans car," Buescher said. "We fought a tight race car all race, and our steering was off a little bit throughout the run. Tire wear is so important here and luckily that wasn't a huge factor for us. Crew chief Trent Owens made a good call to keep us out during scheduled flag stops and we got the caution that gave us back a lap. We're really working on our 1.5-mile program at JTG Daugherty Racing and we'll have another opportunity to keep improving next weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway."
TRENT OWENS, CREW CHIEF QUOTE:
"There are definitely things we need to work on, but as a whole I'm proud of the way we finished as a team," Owens said. "Jumping from the craziness of Daytona (International Speedway) to a completely different rules package at Atlanta, the guys worked hard all weekend to make sure we got the right handling in the No. 37 BUSH's Beans Chevrolet. We got some good notes from this weekend that we'll be able to take to Las Vegas next weekend. We're still learning each other as a driver and crew chief and as a new team, and we look forward to Vegas."
