ADVANCE NOTES

Weekend Format

  • Heat races return for this weekend’s dirt racing, with a random draw set to determine Saturday’s heat race starting lineups.
  • Passing and finishing points from each heat race will determine lineups for Sunday night’s feature race. Drivers will receive one point for each spot improved in their respective heat, with finishing points on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 scale.

 

Buescher at Bristol Motor Speedway

  • Last season Buescher finished 14th in the No. 17 in the inaugural Bristol Dirt event after starting from the 11th spot.
  • Overall at BMS, Buescher has two top-10s with a career-best fifth-place run back in the 2013 fall race. He most recently ran eighth in the fall of 2020.
  • He also made five Xfinity starts at BMS with three top-10s, including a best effort of third in 2015.

 

Scott Graves at Bristol Motor Speedway

  • Graves is coming off an impressive year one at the Bristol Dirt race, where he led Ryan Newman to a fifth-place run in 2021, which stands as his best finish at Bristol in his Cup career.
  • Graves otherwise has one top-10 – a P9 – in the 2019 spring race, and five top-15s overall.

 

QUOTE WORTHY
Buescher on racing at Bristol:
“Bristol weekend is always exciting for me as it stands as my favorite track and is always a blast. Putting dirt on it makes it that much more challenging, but hopefully in our case makes it more fun. We’re looking forward to a full weekend to continue our grind in the Fastenal Ford.”

 

Last Time Out
Buescher drove his Fastenal Ford to a 15th-place run at Martinsville last Saturday night after a career-best qualifying effort of fourth.
