RPP will make its debut on Buescher’s Ford Mustang at Auto Club Speedway on Saturday, March 22.

Buescher is a leading candidate for rookie of the year honors in NNS competition this season. The Prosper, Texas native finished 16th last weekend in his second career trip to Bristol Motor Speedway. Buescher has finished inside the top 17 in all but one of his career NNS starts.
This weekend the former ARCA Champion makes his debut at Auto Club Speedway, where he will look to build upon his success at two mile tracks. Buescher finished seventh at Michigan International Raceway last year and hopes that the knowledge gained there will help him in California.
