James Buescher worked his way past Kyle Busch with three to go and held on to score his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory of the season at Michigan International Speedway.
Buescher worked his way up front late in the race and was able to take advantage of Busch and Brendan Gaughan battling side-by-side for the lead. Buescher dove to the inside and made it stick, passing both drivers to claim the top spot in Saturday’s Michigan National Guard 200.
"Once you get a run on somebody, you just have to be committed," Buescher said. "It’s a tough style of racing, but you see the opportunity to go from third to first in one corner, you need to take it."
Buescher’s newborn baby, Stetson, joined him in victory lane for the celebration. It’s safe to say they were both pumped up about the big win.
"His first time at the racetrack, we got Stetson in victory lane. Proud papa right now." Buescher said.
