Trevor Bayne and Chris Buescher got together battling to stay in front of the leader with seven laps remaining in segment one of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. They collected the leader Ryan Blaney in the process.
Blaney led 100 of the first 117 laps, but his car sustained enough damage that he will not be around at the end of the race. Get him off your NASCAR Fantasy Live roster. Apr 15 - 2:55 PM

Chris Buescher slipped badly during his past two weeks with a 29th at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) and 30th at Auto Club Speedway after finishing in the top 20 twice in the first three weeks.

Buescher has finished three laps off the pace in each of the past two races and worse than he started by an average of 11.5 positions. He should be evaluated only for the STP 500.

It wasn’t his best qualification ever, but Chris Buescher tied his second-best effort with a 12th-place in time trials for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

Buescher advanced to the final round of qualification twice with a ninth at Sonoma Raceway in 2017 and a 12th at Bristol Motor Speedway where he scored a top-five finish. Buescher was one of our dark horses in this week’s Start or Park feature and he is rewarding that confidence.

With four laps remaining in stage 2 of the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway, Chris Buescher slapped the wall.

He will likely lose a lap and become a poor fantasy value.
Mar 11 - 5:11 PM

Chris Buescher is still searching for his first career top-25 at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway this week; his best effort of 27th was earned in last year’s edition of the TicketGuardian 500.

Buescher has had some decent runs on the other one-mile flat track, however; he finished 21st in the fall 2017 ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and that fairly well defines his top potential for the week.
Mar 7 - 5:27 PM

Chris Buescher scored his first career top-10 on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series last year with a sixth at Kansas Speedway.

With that as a potential high point, fantasy owners can be very happy with the remainder of his finishes on this track type. They ranged from 16th to 27th in a fairly narrow and predictable band. His overall average on "cookie-cutter" tracks last year was slightly better than 20th.

Chris Buescher may well have been the best value in the Daytona 500 with a fifth-place finish after starting 21st.

The addition of 16-place differential points in addition to what he scored for the fifth-place result more than offset his modest salary cap. Buescher is not a one-trick pony, however, and will continue to be an acceptable sleeper in the coming weeks. Watch him closely.

Kroger’s digital shopping experience Clicklist will expand its involvement with JTG-Daugherty Racing to include Chris Buescher in 2018.

Activating two drivers doubles the exposure for the supermarket giant and it will also have a positive fantasy effect. With increased confidence in his second season with JTG-Daugherty, Buescher should have slightly improved results.
Jan 31 - 11:52 AM

Chris Buescher scored his first top 10 in the past 10 races when he crossed under the checkers sixth in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Buescher’s last top-10 came on another unrestricted, intermediate speedways with a sixth at Michigan International Speedway. It is unlikely that he was on many rosters and that made him a great differentiator for his owners.

JTG Daugherty Racing announced today NASCAR driver Chris Buescher will continue to pilot the No. 37 Chevrolet at the top level of the sport, signing a multi-year contract with the team.

Buescher came on the scene in the ARCA Racing Series in 2009, after being signed as a development driver with Roush Fenway Racing. He competed in the ARCA Racing Series for five years, winning the ARCA Championship in 2012 and making the jump to the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2014. In 2015, Buescher earned two wins, 11 top-five and 20 top-10 finishes en route to becoming the NASCAR XFINITY Series Championship. To date, he has one win, two top-five finishes and five top-10 finishes in 65 starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.-JTG

Chris Buescher scored his third top-10 of the season with a sixth-place finish in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

All three of his best runs have come since the beginning of June. He was 10th in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway and ninth at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Last week, he narrowly missed the top 10 with an 11th at Watkins Glen International and that means he is becoming a good place-and-hold driver at his level.

Chris Buescher earned his second top-10 finish in the past four weeks when he crossed under the checkers ninth in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Buescher has been among the most improved drivers this year with his move to JTG-Daugherty Racing and he should continue to be on most fantasy players’ radar screens.

Chris Buescher finished 10th in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

Buescher finished 15th at Talladega SuperSpeedway this spring, so his top-10 was not a huge surprise. He also ran well last week at Sonoma Raceway and now has back-to-back lead lap finishes.

Chris Buescher earned the best qualification result of his career in Saturday’s time trials for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. He’ll start ninth.

Buescher’s previous best came at Bristol Motor Speedway last August when he rolled off the grid 12th. He finished fifth in that race, so his starting position should be considered a good omen.

If the past seven races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks are an indication, Chris Buescher should earn positive place-differential points this week.

Since Charlotte Motor Speedway last fall, Buescher has finished better than he started on this course type, picking up as many as 17 place-differential points at Texas Motor Speedway this April. He qualified 29th for the Coke 600 and has finished better than that in his last eight races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.
