Front Row Motorsports has confirmed that Chris Buescher will drive the Number 34 Ford Fusion in 2016. Buescher moves up from the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He won the Xfinity Series Championship in 2015 for Roush Fenway Racing.
Buescher previously won the ARCA Series Championship in 2012. The championship led to his rise onto the stock car racing scene. Moving to Roush Fenway Racing was the possible move Buescher could make. A great team with wonderful equipment led him to much success in NASCAR’s second-tier series.
In 2015, Buescher was able to run the entire NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule and run a few select Sprint Cup races at the beginning of the season. He won two Xfinity races in his breakout season for Roush Fenway Racing. Consistency helped him secure the grand prize ahead of rivals Chase Elliott and Ty Dillon. The previous season, he won at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course.
Chris Buescher is definitely going to be a contender for the Sprint Cup title in the next five years. He has shown us that he has all-star potential. Although he has three career Xfinity wins, the upside of Chris Buescher is just as high as Kyle Larson’s when he moved to the Number 42 Chevrolet for Chip Ganassi Racing. What do you think of Buescher’s move to Sprint Cup race fans? Is the move to the world’s highest level of stock car racing a good decision or should Buescher have another year in the Xfinity Series? The technical alliance Roush Fenway Racing formed with Front Row Motorsports should help both team and driver develop their skills.
