Kyle Busch, the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, and Chris Buescher, the 2015 XFINITY Series champion, will make an appearance at the Speedway Children's Charities Champions Breakfast on the morning of Friday, July 15 to drop the green flag on NASCAR race weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. 

Emceed by NBC Host Krista Voda, the breakfast will run from 8-10 a.m. in the hospitality area behind the main grandstands, where Busch and Buescher will answer questions from retired veteran pit road reporter Dick Berggren, who currently sits on the SCC Board and is president of the North East Motor Sports Museum - set to open during September race weekend. 

"Kyle Busch is one of the most talented drivers in the world and a true champion, but he's also a new father that's clearly enjoying being a dad," said Cheryl LaPrade, director of the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. "Chris is having a fantastic rookie season in the Sprint Cup Series. We can't wait to have them at our breakfast." 

July NASCAR race weekend will feature five races over the weekend. Scheduled races include the NASCAR Modified All-Star Shootout on July 15; the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour New England 100, the NASCAR XFINITY Series Lakes Region 200, and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Granite State 70 on July 16; and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series New Hampshire 301 on July 17.

The Champions Breakfast will have a full breakfast, with all proceeds directly benefitting the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD).

Busch has two career wins at the Magic Mile and will likely be the favorite when the series returns on July 17. Busch has nine top-10s in 12 starts this season, including nine top-fives and three wins. 

Coming off a championship season in the XFINITY Series, Buescher is in his rookie season behind the wheel of the No. 34 for Roush Fenway Racing.
