Chris Buescher Front Row Motorsports STP 500 Race Preview

"I've only had one test session at Martinsville, and I know how tough it was by myself to get around that racetrack. So, putting 43 cars on a track that small, it's going to get tight in a hurry. I just need to be patient and try to take care of my equipment.

"I think last week's race, my Cup debut, went extremely well. I had a lot of fun, and learned a bunch about the cars and the people we're racing with. That will definitely help going into Martinsville. Being that it's an off weekend on the XFINITY Series side, we can really focus on this Cup race and have a little more time to work with everybody on the 34 team again."
JUST THE FACTS: Sunday's STP 500 will be Buescher's first start at Martinsville Speedway ... The race will be the 22-year-old's second race with Front Row Motorsports, filling in while David Ragan subs for the injured Kyle Busch in the No. 18 car ...
