"I'm really excited about winning at Iowa Speedway," Buescher said. "It's a track that we've been coming to for a long time and haven't had the best of results. We were finally able to get that monkey off our back and put a 'W' in the win column there."

There are seven races to go, beginning with Friday night's event at Chicagoland Speedway.

Buescher won last year's truck race at Chicagoland. He beat Brendan Gaughan to the finish line by just 0.2 seconds for his third of four victories during the 2012 season.

"I couldn't be more excited about going back to Chicagoland Speedway, especially coming off a huge win for our Turner Scott Motorsports team last weekend at Iowa Speedway," he said. "I think it goes without saying that this style of track falls right into our wheelhouse, and I feel like our team will be able to come out of here with another solid finish and hopefully our third victory of the season."

Prior to his win last year, Buescher had finished no better than 11th in three truck starts at Chicagoland. Crafton has placed seventh or better in his three previous races here.

Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski are those Sprint Cup Series regulars competing in this race. Busch is the only driver with multiple truck victories at Chicagoland. He won the first two events here from 2009-10.

Thirty-six teams are on the entry list for the EnjoyIllinois.com 225.
