Buescher to fill in for Busch sub Ragan in 2 more races

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Chris Buescher will get at least two more Sprint Cup races in David Ragan's No. 34 Ford while Ragan fills in for the injured Kyle Busch.

After the 22-year-old Texan runs in his home state for the first time in NASCAR's top series this weekend, Buescher will drive for Front Row Motorsports at Bristol on April 19 and May 3 at Talladega.

The agreement extends Buescher's run to at least five races while Ragan drives Busch's No. 18 Toyota. He was 20th at Fontana and 24th at Martinsville subbing for Ragan.

Buescher is a regular in the NASCAR Xfinity series, where he has one career victory.

Busch broke his right leg and left foot on Feb. 21 at Daytona and is indefinitely sidelined.
