Turner Motorsports announced the addition of longtime marketing partner ABF to the sponsorship lineup of its No. 30 NASCAR Nationwide Series Chevrolet. The freight transportation services company will adorn the hood of the No. 30 Impala in four NNS events, and will be driven by NASCAR Camping World Truck Series comepetitor James Buescher:
April 16, Talladega Superspeedway
April 29, Richmond International Raceway
May 14, Dover International Speedway
Nov. 15, Texas Motor Speedway
Returning to Turner Motorsports in 2011 will mark ABF Freight's seventh year as a Nationwide Series team sponsor. Last season, Jason Leffler drove the ABF 'green machine' in seven events, bringing home two top-five and six top-10 finishes.
"ABF is pleased to have James Buescher behind the wheel of the No. 30 ABF Chevrolet Impala this year," said Russ Aikman, ABF director of marketing. "We look forward to an exciting year as James contends for wins throughout the 2011 season."
Buescher, who drives full-time in the NCWTS for Turner Motorsports, has made one Nationwide Series start in 2011, finishing 13th after starting 16th at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Texas-native is equally as excited to work with the Nationwide Series team, led by veteran crew chief Stewart Cooper.
"I am really excited to get the chance to represent ABF in the Nationwide Series again," Buescher said. "I made my third ever Nationwide Series start with their support in 2008 and brought home a top-15. Hopefully this year we can take it to the next level and go out and contend for wins. I have a lot of work to do to rival Jason's [Leffler] success with ABF last season, but I am sure this No. 30 team can do it! We are going to work really hard to get the ABF Impala into victory lane in 2011."
