Ford Performance NASCAR: Chris Buescher Victory Lane Quotes

CHRIS BUESCHER, No. 17 Fastenal Ford Mustang – VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW – WHEN THE CAUTION CAME OUT TAKE US THROUGH YOUR EMOTIONS.  “I don’t get too stirred up most of the time (laughing).  I was sitting there and we had a nice easy lead going there.  I was taking care of it and then shifting and about the time Scott came on the radio and said, ‘Let’s work it just like that.  Keep it smooth.’  I don’t think he even got off the button and, caution.’  So, I knew it was gonna take some work to get back going, but our Fastenal Mustang was so good firing off today, so good in practice.  I didn’t get the job done in qualifying.  I had to pass a bunch of cars today and have some great strategy and some great pit stops.  Everybody at RFK Racing who has worked so hard to get us to this point.  This is awesome.  I knew that last restart was gonna be tough, but I knew we had the speed in this thing.”

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS SUMMER RACE AT RICHMOND THAT FITS YOU SO WELL?  “I love it when it gets hot and slick out here.  I like searching for grip.  I like that line moving around and it made it fun.  I felt like the spring race we were pretty decent, but didn’t have everything go our way.  That was just textbook execution from everybody.  We had a clean day, good strategy, good pit stops, good choices and that got us here to Victory Lane with our Fastenal Mustang.  I just feel that the hot, slick weather lets us move around and chase what we need to have that speed in our race cars.”


HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE IN QUALIYING AND THE RACE?  “It might have been me (laughing).  I won’t take the credit today.  That was a ton of other people working together.  We had a little bit of a miss in qualifying and group choice was bad luck of the draw, but at the end of the day it put us in a tough spot to start the day and to be in victory lane that makes it even more special.”
