FORT WORTH (AP) – James Buescher is looking for more ways to help tornado victims in Oklahoma after the defending NASCAR Truck Series champion spent a day helping clear debris.
Buescher said Thursday that it’s humbling to see what the people in Moore, Okla., are going through in the aftermath of a massive tornado May 20 that left 24 people dead, injured hundreds and caused damage or destruction to thousands of homes and businesses. Another big tornado hit the Oklahoma City area last Friday.
Before qualifying for Friday night’s race at Texas Motor Speedway, his home track, Buescher said his Turner Scott Motorsports team was talking about how to help more.
The driver spent Wednesday helping clear off slabs of homes that were damaged beyond repair so the homes could be rebuilt.
