ROUSH Performance Parts (RPP) has announced it will serve as the primary partner on the No. 60 Ford Mustang - piloted by NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) rookie Chris Buescher – for 10 races during the 2014 season. RPP will make its debut on Buescher’s Ford Mustang at Auto Club Speedway on Saturday, March 22.
“We are thrilled to have ROUSH Performance on board,” said Buescher. “I have had the opportunity to drive quite a few ROUSH Stage III Mustangs and experience first-hand what RPP’s line of aftermarket products add to a car’s performance. They really provide maximum performance and hopefully having them on my Mustang in California can help ‘supercharge’ our efforts.”
Created in 1995, ROUSH Performance Products combines race-proven technologies with advanced automotive engineering to continually provide customers the ultimate driving experience - the perfect combination of racecar and road car. Created as the first specialty-vehicle company to adhere to O.E. standards, RPP offers an extensive line of aftermarket performance parts and vehicles.
Buescher is a leading candidate for rookie of the year honors in NNS competition this season. The Prosper, Texas native finished 16th last weekend in his second career trip to Bristol Motor Speedway. Buescher has finished inside the top 17 in all but one of his career NNS starts.
This weekend the former ARCA Champion makes his debut at Auto Club Speedway, where he will look to build upon his success at two mile tracks. Buescher finished seventh at Michigan International Raceway last year and hopes that the knowledge gained there will help him in California.
