Taking a page right out of Jimmie Johnson’s fictional how-to book, “Act Like a Champion”, reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion James Buescher, along with his wife Krishtian, will travel to Moore, Oklahoma on Wednesday, to assist with cleanup and rebuilding efforts throughout the community that was hit by devastating tornados last week.

In addition to the Bueschers traveling to Oklahoma, Turner Scott Motorsports co-owner Steve Turner is also supporting the cleanup efforts by sending heavy machinery and operators to assist with clearing the rubble that was left behind.

The devastation hits close to home for the Bueschers as James' brother Michael lives in nearby Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Michael was unharmed in the storms that ripped through the area last week.

"I am very fortunate to have the time and ability to go assist the Moore, Oklahoma community in their time of need," said Buescher. "Both Kris and I feel like it is the least we can do with the long road to recovery that the people of Oklahoma have ahead of them."

Following his trip to Oklahoma, Buescher will return to his home state of Texas, where he will compete in the Winstar World Casino 400 at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday .
