Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California is virgin territory for James Buescher. The 18-year-old Sheridan, Texas native is scheduled to compete in Fontana for the first time in his third career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race.

“I’ve never seen the place,” said Buescher. “You can’t really prepare for a track until you’ve driven on it. But you show up, you go practice and figure it out by lap two.”

The International MaxxForce Diesel team will use an updated chassis in Fontana. Crew chief Jamie Jones expects it to be the team’s primary truck at the intermediate tracks throughout the season. Buescher will drive the MaxxForce Diesel Ford F-150 equipped with K&N filters. “K&N gives us the maximum horsepower we need in our Roush-Yates engines,” said Buescher. “We can depend on K&N for its reliability.”

“I’ve played the NASCAR video games, but they only give you an idea of track mapping,” said Buescher. “They don’t’ tell you what the truck is going to do at certain points on the track. Every track that we visit is going to be new for me this year because I haven’t been in a truck at too many of them.”

Buescher captured his second career ARCA RE/MAX Series victory in the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway. The Circle Bar Truck Corral Racer’s first series win put him in the record books as the youngest winner in the ARCA RE/MAX Series history.

Buescher is competing for Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year honors this season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He is currently fifth in the Rookie of the Year standings following a 26th place finish last weekend at Daytona.

The San Bernardino County 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is at noon on Saturday, followed by the Stater Bros. 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race around 4:30 p.m. The Auto Club 500 starts Sunday at 3 p.m.
