James Buescher will occupy the seat of the No. 31 Chevrolet Silverado in 2013 looking to win back-to-back Truck Series titles.
While Buescher will look to win the Truck Series crown in 2013, he also will find some seat time in the Nationwide Series.
Last season Buescher had four wins in the NCWTS and had 10 finishes inside the top-five. He also won the Nationwide Series opener at Daytona International Speedway after avoiding a last lap accident.
“Last season was a dream come true for me. I had always dreamt of winning a NASCAR championship. I am most excited about the opportunity to compete to become the first driver to win the NCWTS championship in back-to-back seasons. I look forward to working with the entire Turner Motorsports organization and Rheem on our quest to keep the NCWTS championship at Turner Motorsports “said Buescher in a statement.
Michael Shelton will return to his previous role serving as Crew Chief for Buescher and the No. 31 Rheem Chevy Silverado in 2013.
