Pocono Raceway – Pocono Mountains 125

August 3, 2013

Return to Pavement…Following their dirt debut, Jeb Burton and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) return to familiar grounds as they take on the Tricky Triangle at Pocono Raceway. In Saturday’s Pocono Mountains 125, Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will race for redemption after two previous top-20 finishes. Burton still holds second place in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.

This Week’s Silverado…The No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team will unload Chassis TSM-220 this weekend for the Pocono Mountains 125. TSM-220 took the team to victory lane at Texas Motor Speedway in June and claimed the pole award at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Stop and Say Hello…If you’re at the track on Friday, stop and meet Burton and his TSM teammates at the NCWTS autograph session located in Chalet Village behind Turn 3, next to Gate 8 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Watch and Listen…Action from the Tricky Triangle will be live on SPEED on Saturday, August 3. Coverage begins at 12:30 p.m. EDT and can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap…With no dirt track experience, Burton and the No. 4 TSM team tackled unfamiliar grounds in the inaugural Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway. Burton used the three practice sessions to gain familiarity and learn from the dirt-track pros. Being patient paid off as Burton qualified among the top-five and won his eight-lap heat race. Throughout the main event, Burton ran consistent laps and stayed out of trouble. In the final segment, however, Burton was unable to avoid a wreck and received significant damage to his front end. Burton and the No. 4 team ended the night with an 18th place finish at NASCAR’s return to dirt.

Jeb Burton on Racing at Pocono Raceway

“I can’t wait to get to Pocono. After Eldora, I’m just ready to get back on pavement and show everyone what I’m capable of behind the wheel of the No. 4. I’ve never raced at Pocono but I’ve studied the track a lot and know my teammates do pretty well there. The truck we’re taking is fast and has really performed this season. I’m hoping to land it in victory lane again, but my overall goal is a top-five finish and a few points closer to P1 on the NCWTS leaderboard.”

Todd Bodine on driving at Pocono Raceway

“I have been going to Pocono to watch my brothers race since I was eight-years-old. I’ve changed tires on pit road and raced there several times. It’s a very important track in the history of our family. Pocono Raceway is also a very big supporter of the Onion Slice Open, and we’re really appreciative of that.”

Pocono Raceway – Pocono Mountains 125
August 3, 2013

Tricky Triangle…After racing on dirt last week,the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to the pavement this week at the Tricky Triangle of Pocono Raceway. The last time he visited Pocono, James Buescher came up just one spot shy of the victory. Buescher and the Rheem team look to better last year’s finish and bring home the first victory for the No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports team in 2013. Buescher has an average finish at Pocono Raceway of 5.3.

Gotta Have a Rheem…The familiar Rheem paint scheme will be back on board the No. 31 Chevrolet Silverado this weekend for the Pocono Mountains 125.Rheem Manufacturing Company (www.rheem.com) is privately held with headquarters in Atlanta. In its 87th year of operation, the company manufactures a full line of high-quality residential and commercial heating and cooling systems; tank, tankless, solar, and heat pump water heaters; swimming pool heaters and commercial boilers throughout North America and world markets. The company’s premium brands, including Raypak, Ruud and Rheem, have been recognized with countless industry and consumer awards for reliability, innovative design and high quality.

Rheem also sponsors RCR’s No. 29 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car driven by Kevin Harvick and the No. 33 NASCAR Nationwide Series car driven by Paul Menard.

Chassis Info…The Rheem team will bring Chassis TSM-217 with them to Pocono Raceway for the Pocono Mountains 125. This chassis was used to earn Buescher’s first pole in nearly two years earlier this season at Kansas Speedway. This chassis was also utilized when Buescher was forced to go to a backup truck at Dover due to an accident in qualifying.

Previous Race Recap….For the first time in 43 years, NASCAR made their historic return to the dirt at Eldora Speedway for the Mudsummer Classic. With a unique event on tap including heat races, a last chance qualifying race and a three-segment feature, Buescher and the Rheem team came into Eldora not knowing what to expect with very little experience racing on dirt. After nearly five-and-a-half hours of practice, Buescher started to get accustomed to the style of racing and was ready for the 150-lap main event. Buescher was locked into the feature and started ninth after finishing second in his heat race. When the green flag flew for the feature event, Buescher paced himself in the early going while he looked to get into a groove. During the last segment, the 30-truck field started to get antsy. Buescher sustained some damage to his Rheem Silverado, but was able to bring home the No. 31 in the 19th spot.

Watch and Listen…The Pocono Mountains 125 can be seen live on Saturday, August 3 on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 12:30 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Get Your Sharpies Ready…Come out and meet James Buescher, along with the rest of the Turner Scott Motorsports drivers, and get an autograph on Friday afternoon from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The session will be held in Chalet Village located behind Turn 3 next to the Gate 8 ticket booth.

James Buescher on Returning to Pocono Speedway

“Pocono is a great, fast racetrack that requires you and the team to be on top of your game. We had a great run there last year, and I really feel like our Rheem team is ready to win this year and start our push towards the back-to-back championship.”

Previous Race Recap… Things got a little bit dirty as the NCWTS made its debut at the legendary Eldora Speedway. After a strong qualifying run and an extremely competitive heat race, Paludo fought his way back from a lap down to finish 21st in the first ever NCWTS race on dirt.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Pocono Raceway

“Coming from Eldora, I don’t think I have ever had such an appreciation for asphalt. Last week’s race was fun, but I’m happy to get back to a paved track where our team has had good results in the past. We’re bringing the same truck we brought to Kentucky [Speedway] and Texas [Motor Speedway], and we had top 10s at both. We qualified and ran well at Pocono last year, so based on the direction our team has been going so far this season, I know we’ll be even better this time.”
