James Buescher of Circle Bar Racing will make his first visit to Atlanta Motor Speedway to compete in his fourth career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.

The 18-year-old Sheridan, Texas resident and the International MaxxForce Diesel Team will use the same No. 10 Diesel Powered Ford F-150 Buescher drove to a 13th place finish two weeks ago at Auto Club Speedway in California.

“Most of these tracks this year are new to me,” said Buescher. “But I’ve got some familiarity with the truck. We know some of its basic handling characteristics since California which will hopefully help get the truck dialed into the track in Atlanta a little quicker.”

Buescher captured his second career ARCA RE/MAX Series victory in the season-opening Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway in February.

“While I’ve never raced in Atlanta, I did go to the fall truck series race there in 2007 to watch from the pits,” said Buescher. “It’s a high banked fast paced track that races like a superspeedway. There will be some drafting on the straight-aways, and I think the key to success is working on the handling of the truck once the tires go away. In the first few laps with new tires I’ll be able to run wide open, but once the tires fall off in a few laps, I’ll have to lift and get my truck running in the preferred line.”

Circle Bar Racing’s Rick Crawford will make his 300th start, extending a Series record at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He will use the same chassis that he drove to a 14th place finish at Auto Club Speedway two weeks ago. His No.14 International Truck and Engine Ford F-150 is the team’s workhorse on the intermediate tracks and raced seven times in 2008.

“Atlanta is one of the fastest tracks on the Camping World Truck Series schedule,” said Crawford. “When we started in 1997, we only had one truck and one engine. Through hard work and determination we have grown Circle Bar Racing into a two- truck operation.”

The team uses K&N filters. “K&N give us the maximum horsepower we need in our Roush-Yates engines,” said Buescher. “We can depend on K&N for its reliability.”
