(MOORESVILLE, N.C. - July 23, 2012) - Buster Graham made his 12th ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start at Chicagoland Speedway Saturday. He finished 19th, competing against a strong field of talented drivers in the Ansell ActivArmr 150.
In the practice session on Friday, Buster was hoping to pick up where he left off at the Chicago test in June, posting his best lap time of the day at 32.644 seconds. On Saturday, Buster qualified the #88 Batter’s Dream/RoushYates.com Ford Fusion 19th for the race. With only two cautions during the entire race, Crew Chief, Jim Pearce decided to bring in the #88 Batter’s Dream Ford Fusion for one pit stop on lap 48 for four tires and fuel.
Buster Graham provided his thoughts on Chicagoland Speedway, “I’m glad I had this opportunity to be a part of the ARCA race at Chicagoland Speedway. We stayed out of trouble and had a good day. It took some time to get comfortable with the car and racing at this track but once I knew exactly what to do, I felt more at ease. I’d like to thank Batter’s Dream, RoushYates Engines, RoushYates Performance Parts or Ford for all of their support this season.”
“This was Buster’s first appearance racing at Chicagoland Speedway,” says Crew Chief, Jim Pearce. “He worked very hard trying to get his best lap times throughout the race and figuring out exactly what he needed to do. Buster is getting more experience every race he attends and I’m anxious to head to Lucas Oil Raceway next weekend.”
