Chris Buescher Front Row Motorsports Duck Commander 500 Race Preview

"It's always fun going to your home track. My parents and sisters are going to drive up from the Austin area. I've got a lot of friends and people I haven't seen in a while coming out, so that will be fun. I usually stay for the Cup race and go watch from the grandstands with Mom and Dad, so it will be a little bit different this time around, but I'm not complaining about that.
"Texas Motor Speedway is a place where I've had ups and downs. This year, the tracks we go to with worn-out asphalt and a lot of tire fall-off, those are the places we seem to be a little bit better and more consistent. So, that bodes well for us as we head to Texas."
