TV Network/Radio: FOX SPORTS 1 / MRN / SIRIUSXM
Chris Buescher ran his first race in the No. 37 Cottonelle Mega Roll Chevrolet at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday in the Can-Am Duels. The team lost a practice today due to inclement weather, and had yet to draft the Chevrolet SS in a practice. Running in the Top-10 for the majority of the race, Buescher fell out of the pack and lost a few spots. Missing a wreck with 12 laps to go, he kept the No. 37 Cottonelle Mega Roll Chevrolet clean and brought it to the checkered flag in the 15th position.
CHRIS BUESCHER, NO. 37 COTTONELLE MEGA ROLL DRIVER:
“I am glad it was clean," Buescher said. "That was my biggest worry was coming into this one and tearing up our Daytona 500 car. I’m glad to get out of here without a scratch on it. We can take the Cottonelle Mega Roll Chevrolet to the next one, which is the big one, the one that means something. Unfortunately, didn’t get any bonus points out of it, but we're pretty happy with what we got.
It’s a little bit better than the Clash car and feel like it will be a fine race car. I’m learning a lot at these speedway races. I used to think they were a little more luck than they are. I’m starting to study more now and it’s getting better.”
TRENT OWENS, NO. 37 CREW CHIEF QUOTE:
"We had a good run tonight in the No. 37 Cottonelle Mega Roll Chevy," Owens said. "We're still a new team, and there's a bit of a learning curve that comes with that. To be able to keep the car clean and bring it to the Daytona 500 on Sunday is a big deal. We lost practice today due to the rain, so we haven't drafted this car yet. Tonight was definitely a learning tool for Sunday, and we'll get some good practices tomorrow and Saturday to get the No. 37 Cottonelle Mega Roll Chevrolet in good shape for the Daytona 500."
