“I can’t even count the number of times we finished second. We’ve had a lot of second-place finishes, but we finally got the win.” Buescher said referring to his four second place finishes.

On the final pit stop, Buescher took four tires while others just took two or just gas only. Keselowski only took two tires and pitted many laps earlier than Buescher. This allowed Buescher to easily make the pass for the race lead and win.

“I was kind of worried about the two-tire and four-tire situation, but I knew if we had four tires and came out close, we could probably run them down.” Buescher said.

Timothy Peters passed Keselowski for second place in the final laps of the race and now holds a four point lead over Buescher in the series standings.

“We moved up a lane there just past halfway and it just seemed like it kept chugging all along. It’s a testament to this team and Butch Hylton (crew chief) and the hard work that he’s put in over the off season.” Peters said.

Keselowski finished third, Nelson Piquet Jr. fourth and Todd Bodine finished fifth.

“James drove a great race and congratulations to his team. That whole 31 truck, they were just lightning quick and they executed and that’s what it takes to win. We did a good job with our team, with executing, and we just needed a little bit more speed and we might have had something for James but congratulations to him.” Keselowski said.
