"The Ruud brand has been providing superior reliability to homes and businesses for over one hundred years. The Ruud reputation for engineering excellence, durability, strength and top performance has been consistently recognized by leading consumer publications as a brand that can be trusted to deliver efficient, reliable performance over the long haul. So, associating this durable brand and its proud history of top performance with former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series® champion, James Buescher driving the RAB Racing No. 99 Camry is a great fit and a proud moment for our company and the Ruud brand, said JR Jones, President and CEO.
In two previous NNS starts at the 1.366-mile oval, Buescher has one top-10 finish. Buescher has also competed at the Darlington Raceway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in two events and has recorded two top-10s. The Texan is competing for his first NASCAR Nationwide Series championship. Through the first six events, former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion is currently sitting ninth in points.
"I'm excited to represent the Ruud brand once again this season," said James Buescher. "Ruud is a very trusted, respected brand and to be able to carry their colors makes me proud. I am especially looking forward to the Darlington race, not only have I had some success at the track but there will be a large contingent of South Carolina Ruud contractors and Ruud distributor, McCall's Supply in attendance. I know I will have strong support from them."
