by TMS Webmaster | Nov 03, 2011

FORT WORTH, Texas (November 3, 2011) – Plano native James Buescher completed a season sweep of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series pole positions at Texas Motor Speedway on Thursday by securing the top position for the WinStar World Casino 350.

Buescher (No. 31 Exide Chevrolet), who also won the pole at June’s WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway, posted a lap of 181.062 miles per hour (29.824 seconds) to earn his third pole of the season and career.

Buescher will be joined on the front row by Austin Dillon (No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Boats Chevrolet), who was second fastest at 180.783 mph. It places the top two drivers in the NASCAR Camping World Series championship battle side by side for the WinStar World Casino 350 as Dillon leads Buescher by 11 points with two races left.

The top-five qualifiers following the front row were Blake Feese (Cyclone Anaya’s Chevrolet) at 180.554 mph; Kyle Busch (No. 18 TRAXXAS Toyota) at 180.451 mph; and Ricky Carmichael (No. 4 Monster Energy Chevrolet) at 180.421 mph. Turner Motorsports showed its muscle by securing three of the top five qualifying positions with Buescher, Feese and Carmichael while Chevrolet took 11 of the top 12.

The WinStar World Casino 350 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is set for Friday beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are available by calling (817) 215-8500 or by visiting www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
