2012 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Champion James Buescher will make his return to competition in NASCAR on Sunday, October 25th at Texas Motor Speedway, driving for race-winning organization Niece Motorsports.

“I am thankful for everyone at Niece Motorsports and FHE for believing in me and providing me this opportunity to get back behind the wheel and once again showcase my talents,” said Buescher.  “When I exited the sport back in 2015, it was not on my own terms.  We had a lot going on at home in 2015, sometimes you have to take a step back and pay attention to God’s plan for your life.  Right now, everything has fallen into place to come back and race at my home track at Texas Motor Speedway, and I could not be more excited!  It’s going to be challenging after more than five years away from racing, but I am up for the challenge and can’t wait for the green flag to drop.”

The Plano, Texas-native has run a total of 10 NASCAR Truck Series events at Texas Motor Speedway, finishing inside the top-10 on five occasions, including three finishes of sixth-place at the 1.5-mile oval.

“We are thankful to have James join the team in Texas,” said general manager Cody Efaw.  “James has a tremendous amount of experience in the Truck Series and at Texas Motor Speedway.  We are excited for the wealth of knowledge and talent that he’ll bring to the table.”

In 2015, Buescher moved from being a full-time competitor in the NASCAR Truck Series to becoming a successful realtor in the Houston, Texas area where he and his wife, Kris, currently operate The Buescher Group at Compass Real Estate.

Buescher will join Niece Motorsports teammates Natalie Decker and Trevor Bayne for next Sunday’s 400, alongside another driver that has yet to be announced.
