James Buescher will take on the Daytona International Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The Circle Bar International MaxxForce Diesel team will use chassis CB-8 this week. The truck is designed to compete on the two superspeedways of Daytona and Talladega and was updated by crew chief Jamie Jones in the off-season.

“I have a high confidence level this week,” said Buescher. “But I’m more anxious than anything because I haven’t had any seat time with the team and I haven’t worked much with the guys or Jamie.”

Buescher said he is anxious to see the handling differences between the trucks and cars. He competed in six NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2008 and has won national championships in Legend Cars and Late Models.

“One of the biggest differences between cars and trucks should be the closing rate in the draft,” said Buescher. “The trucks will suck up faster than the cars, and I’m preparing myself for that.”

Buescher, 18,  will team with veteran Rick Crawford, who will drive the No.14 International Truck and Engine F-150. The Circle Bar International Truck and Engine team will use chassis CB-4 this week at Daytona. It is the team’s workhorse on the superspeedways and was raced to a fifth place finish last year at Daytona.

“Since there was a ban on off-season testing this year, I’m happy to be back at Daytona for the start of the 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season,” said Crawford. “I’m looking forward to the first laps on the high banks with the Internationals Truck and Engine Ford.”

Crawford will make his 298th start this weekend at Daytona. “Having a teammate at Daytona is always a plus,” he said. “We’ll work together and hopefully the two Circle Bar Fords can push each other for the win.”

“I’ll lean on Rick for advice,” said Buescher. “I think he’ll be able to help me out a lot and that’s a plus at a place like Daytona.”

Circle Bar Racing only uses K&N Filters in its Roush-Yates engines. “Our engine tuners performed dyno testing off season,” said Buescher. “We know K&N gives us maximum horsepower and reliability in our Fords.”

The 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts February 13 at Daytona International Speedway. It will be televised on SPEED-TV.
