Daytona 500 Chris Buescher

The excitement is building for the Sprint Cup debut of Front Row Motorsports driver Chris Buescher as he solidified his place in the Daytona 500 field with a Top 10 finish in the first of two Can-Am Duels on Thursday night.

"Nice job, fellas," said crew chief Bob Osborne moments after the race.

Buescher's finish in the duels means he'll start 17th at the Daytona 500 on Sunday in the #34 Love's Ford Fusion. Be sure to follow Front Row Motorsports on Twitter. They do a terrific job of highlighting all the race action in real time!
