Don't let the final result fool you: Chris Buescher's day in Fontana at the Auto Club 400 was a step in the right direction. After a start in P16, Buescher finished the day in the #34 Love's Ford in 33rd place.

The Front Row Motorsports team says they had a good car on Sunday, and if it hadn't been for a little bad luck with a bum tire, their finish could have been downright spectacular.

"It's unfortunate we had the flat tire there because we had a lot of speed in our Love's Travel Stops Ford Fusion," Buescher said. "We've made a lot of really big gains in a short period of time. If we hadn't had that happen, we would have been in the Top 20, no doubt, and probably a little bit better than that."

Buescher was quick to show his appreciation for the entire team, telling fans that the best is yet to come.

"It's a bummer that it happened the way it did, but I'm really proud of the guys. We made a huge step in the right direction, and if we have more days with a car like we had today, we will get the finishes," he said.

Jimmie Johnson won the race with Kevin Harvick coming in a close second.

Buescher's next race in the #34 Love's Ford Fusion will be at Texas Motor Speedway on April 9 at the Duck Commander 500. In the meantime, check out these photos from California! We'd love to see your fan photos, too!! Send them to, and you might see them on our social channels.
