Buescher on racing at Darlington:
“Darlington is one of those places where we’ve worked really hard to be better, and I think we made some great strides in the spring as a company, even though our finishes didn’t necessarily show it. It’s a really challenging place to drive, but it’s really fun once you get the handling of the car tuned. We look forward to a strong weekend at Fifth Third Ford.”
