Chris Buescher

  • Age: 22
  • Xfinity Series wins: 1
  • Best Sprint Cup Series Standings Finish: No full seasons yet

Chris Buescher made his NASCAR debut in Legends cars before rising up in the ARCA series. There, he went on to win the 2012 ARCA Racing Series Championship. In 2011 and 2013, he raced in a few Nationwide Series races for Roush Fenway.

He started racing full-time in the Nationwide Series in 2014 and has been racing in the Sprint Cup Series in 2015 as long as his schedules do not overlap. He finished in 7th place last season in the Nationwide series and I would expect to see him go full-time in the Sprint Cup Series very soon.

Buescher is just another very young driver with lots of potential. It helps that he is getting experience racing in both major Series right now. Though he hasn’t placed well in Sprint Cup Series races, just racing with the best can do a lot to help you progress. Watch out for Chris Buescher in the future.
