Krishtian Buescher has always been around racing, since she was eight years old. She married Camping World Truck Series Driver James Buescher this past off-season and spends almost every weekend at the track. Krishtian’s husband James Buescher came very close to winning last year’s Camping World Truck Series championship. Since then and so far in the 2012 season, he has won three races. Buescher won the Nationwide Series race at Daytona in February and went on to win two truck races – April in Kansas and last Friday night at Kentucky. Krishtian has been by his side for every one of his wins and almost every truck race on SPEED the cameras show Krishtian’s smiling face.

Recently I was able to interview Krishtian and below are the questions asked with her responses.

Question 1: How did you and James meet?
“James and I both used to drive legends cars, so we met racing against each other at ‘lil TMS  – Texas Motor Speedway.”

“How humble he is.”

Question 3: Is there a certain quality you don’t like about James?
“When I’m telling a story, he always interrupts me!!!!!!.”

Question 4: Was racing a part of your life growing up?
“Yes, my parents owned a dirt track when I was little. I’ve been a part of racing since I was 8 years old.”

Question 5: How important is family to you and James?
“Family is VERY important to both James and I. Anytime that we have the chance to spend time with family we do.”

“I love it!!! They are all a blast.”
