Time To Two Step…Jeb Burton heads to Fort Worth, Texas as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes its first start of the season at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS). Burton has never competed at TMS in his short NCWTS career, but he’s proven himself at intermediate tracks. In only 11 NCWTS starts, Burton has scored two poles and three top-10 finishes at tracks one to two miles long.

This Week’s Silverado…Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will utilize powerhouse chassis TSM-220 for Friday’s race at TMS. This is the same chassis Burton and his team used to capture the pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway before bringing home a top-15 finish.

Come Say Hi…Burton and his NCWTS teammates will be signing autographs next to Hospitality Village outside of Turn 1 on Friday, June 7. The session will run from 4:30-5:30 p.m. CDT.

Follow Along…Make sure you stay in the loop with all things Burton and the No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports team by following along on Twitter and Facebook: @JebBurtonRacing and Facebook.com/JebBurtonRacing.

Watch and Listen…The WinStar World Casino 400 can be seen live on Friday, June 7 on SPEED.  Pre-race coverage will begin at 8:30 p.m. EDT, and the event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap…Burton continued his early-season success by taming the ‘Monster Mile’ and capturing his fourth top-10 finish of 2013. The Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate has been handling himself like a veteran, claiming three poles in the first five races of the season while maintaining second in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings. The rookie qualified third on the board and battled sweltering heat before claiming a ninth-place finish.

Jeb Burton on Racing at Texas Motor Speedway

“I’m looking forward to heading to Texas [Motor Speedway], if for no other reason than the momentum it gives us. It’s good anytime we can race back-to-back weekends because it keeps you in a groove. We’ve been good at intermediate tracks and we’re bringing a good truck, so I’m hoping to get myself one of those cowboy hats in victory lane.”

James Buescher

No. 31 Ruud Chevrolet Silverado

Dover Recap…With a never-give-up attitude, James Buescher and the Rheem Crew overcame major adversity at Dover International Speedway last weekend. During the two practice sessions on Thursday afternoon, the Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) crew made many wholesale adjustments to their No. 31 chassis in an effort to tighten up the Rheem Chevrolet Silverado. With a new setup in the truck for qualifying, Buescher was still too loose and, on his second qualifying lap, lost control of the Rheem truck and slapped the outside retaining wall. The damage was too excessive to repair and forced his TSM team to unload the backup Silverado. During the 200-lap race, Buescher was forced to make his way up from the rear of the field and at one point found himself running inside the top three. As the race went on, the handling on the truck went away, and Buescher and the Rheem team were able to salvage a top-15 finish.

Returning Home…Buescher returns to his home track, Texas Motor Speedway (TMS), with the goal of becoming the first driver to win on all surfaces at TMS. Cutting his teeth in racing at TMS, Buescher has already visited victory lane on the short tracks, the dirt track and the road course. The only surface Buescher has yet to win on at TMS is the 1.5-mile oval. After having promising races at TMS, Buescher is looking to close the deal and get his back-to-back championship goal back on track with a win at TMS.

Oklahoma Bound…James, along with his wife Kris, will travel to Moore, Oklahoma this Wednesday, June 5, to assist with cleanup and rebuilding efforts throughout the community that was hit by devastating tornadoes last week. This tragedy hits close to home for the Buescher Family as James’ brother Michael lives in nearby Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Rely on Ruud…This week’s race at TMS was originally planned to be the first Ruud event of the season, but unforeseen circumstances requiring a backup truck forced an early debut last weekend at Dover International Speedway. Ruud will be back onboard this weekend at Texas in front of a large contingent of Ruud supporters. Ruud, part of the Rheem family of quality brands, provides heating, cooling and water heating products for residential and light commercial use. Founded more than 100 years ago by the inventor of the water heater, Edwin Ruud, Rheem acquired the Ruud Company in 1960. Today, Rheem continues developing Ruud products in its tradition of quality, reliability and durability. For more information, please visit www.ruud.com.

Chassis Info…Turner Scott Motorsports will debut a brand-new chassis this coming weekend at TMS. TSM-601 will hit the track for the first time during practice on Thursday afternoon.

Now Appearing…James Buescher will have numerous appearances around the state of Texas this week, with the first events coming at Texas Mesquite Grill in Katy on Monday and Tuesday from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. CDT. Buescher will stop by Century A/C Supply in Houston on Tuesday morning from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. CDT. Buescher will also be featured at the NASCAR autograph session at TMS on Friday afternoon from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. CDT. For more information about these events, please visit JamesBuescher.com.

James Buescher on returning to Texas Motor Speedway

“I’m really looking forward to returning to my home track this weekend. We had a rough weekend at Dover, but I am confident that my Ruud team can rebound from that. I don’t see a better way to get back on track for our championship hunt than finally getting that elusive win at Texas.”

The Lone Stars…The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) takes top billing this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway for a standalone race in the Lone Star State. Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) is tied with Martinsville Speedway and Kentucky Speedway as the track in which Miguel Paludo has made the most starts. In his five previous events at TMS, Paludo has earned two top 10s, with a best finish of eighth scored in 2011. Intermediate tracks have historically been good to the 29-year-old Brazilian, who has earned 10 of his 17 career top-10 finishes at tracks between one and two miles in length.

Hit The Brakes…The No. 32 Chevrolet returns to Duroline Brakes and Components colors this weekend at TMS. Duroline is recognized as a world-class company present all over the world with its products and services. It utilizes high technology for producing heavy-duty brake linings, guaranteeing high performance and durability on its products with very low noise level. It uses a patented production process called Wave Process which is ecologically correct and contributes to the environment preservation. For more information, visit www.duroline.com.br.

Come Say Hi…Paludo and his NCWTS teammates will be signing autographs next to Hospitality Village outside of Turn 1 on Friday, June 7. The session will run from 4:30-5:30 p.m. CDT.

This Week’s Silverado…Paludo and the No. 32 Duroline Brakes and Components team will unload chassis TSM-600 this weekend. This is a brand new chassis which will be making its first laps at TMS.

Previous Race Recap…The ‘Monster Mile’ lived up to its name for Paludo in the Lucas Oil 200. Paludo battled the handling of the No. 32 AccuDoc Solutions Chevrolet for the duration of the 200-lap race, putting him a lap down early in the event and ultimately resulting in an 18th-place finish at Dover International Speedway.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Texas Motor Speedway

“Texas [Motor Speedway] is one of my favorites of all the tracks we go to. We’ve been so strong on the intermediate tracks this year, both the No. 32 team and Turner Scott Motorsports as a whole, and I don’t think this weekend will be any different. I’ve had this race circled on my calendar for a while now; I really think it’s somewhere that we could get our first win.”
