NASCAR driver Buescher mingles with fans at Oklahoma City Thunder game
Hours after it was announced that Love's and Front Row would be partnering for the 2016 NASCAR season, driver Chris Buescher mingled with fans at Wednesday night's Oklahoma City Thunder game.
And we believe the driver of the new #34 Love's Ford Fusion brought the local boys good luck as the Thunder beat the Dallas Mavericks 108-89. The Texas native was the 2015 XFINITY Series Champion and is expected to vie for NASCAR's Rookie of the Year honors in the Sprint Cup series in 2016.
“I can’t wait to work with Love’s,” the 23-year-old driver said. “They’ve been a great partner with Front Row Motorsports over the years and have really embraced the sport. I spend plenty of time on the road in my truck, and it’s good to know that Love’s Travel Stops is there along the way.”
While at the game, Buescher showed fans the new #34 Love's Ford Fusion and mingled with them about the upcoming NASCAR season, which gets under way with the Can-Am Duels, the qualifying races for the Daytona 500, on Thursday, Feb. 18, at Daytona International Speedway. The “Great American Race” is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 21, and will air on FOX.
