Chris Buescher will return to JTG Daugherty Racing in 2018 and beyond driving the No. 37 Chevrolet.
The Tad and Jodi Geschickter-owned organization announced a multiyear deal Friday afternoon in the media center at Bristol Motor Speedway. JTG expanded to a two-car operation before the start of this season to bring in Buescher from Roush Fenway Racing. Buescher is teammates with NASCAR veteran AJ Allmendinger.
“I’m happy to continue driving for JTG Daugherty Racing,” Buescher said in a team release. “I can’t thank Tad, Jodi, Gordon (Smith), and Brad (Daugherty) enough for the opportunity to join this team. We built our team from the ground up this season, and I’m really thankful to be able to continue that in the 2018 season and beyond. We have so many great partners on board this season, and I’m really looking forward to building upon that.”
Next year will be Buescher’s third full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
With three top-10 finishes in 23 starts, Buescher and crew chief Trent Owens sit 25th in points entering the Bristol night race. The team comes into the weekend fresh off its season-best finish of sixth place at Michigan.
Buescher, a Texas native, has one career Monster Energy Series victory in 65 career starts. He won the XFINITY Series championship in 2015.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
