Silly Season is in full force as RAB Racing announced today that James Buescher will drive the No. 99 Toyota for the full season next year in the Nationwide Series. Chris Rice, who worked with that team last year, will be the crew chief, with sponsorship details to come. It is a multi-year partnership.
Buescher drove the No. 31 Turner-Scott Motorsports truck the last couple of seasons, winning a championship in 2011.
Turner-Scott Motorsports will be announcing their driver line-up in the weeks to come, but it has already been announced that Jeb Burton will be back full-time next year in the Truck Series, with a part-time Nationwide Series schedule. Most fans expect close to the same line-up as this past season, with the addition of Dylan Kwasniewski moving up to the Truck Series after winning the K&N Pro Series East title.
Alex Bowman, who drove the No. 99 Toyota last year, was at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Sprint Cup Series test behind the wheel of one of the BK Racing cars. Could he be moving up to Sprint Cup in 2014?
