Cole Custer Steadily Progresses As The Season Unfolds!

Cole Custer
Cole Custer has been racing in NASCAR’s national series for the last four seasons, but at 19 years old, he’s the youngest regular on the NASCAR XFINITY Series circuit.

The two-time national series winner has held his own among the veterans on the XFINITY circuit. He sits 11th in the series standings, on the strength of three top-10 finishes, and would make the playoffs if the season ended today.

Custer hopes to build off his seventh-place Charlotte finish from last weekend in Saturday’s One Main Financial 200 at Dover International Speedway – the final race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash.

“I’m looking forward to Dover, Custer said. “It’s one of the coolest tracks we go to. Dover is a concrete track and we had a great run at Bristol (which is also concrete). I think we’ll unload another great car and, with the momentum we’re bringing from Charlotte, I think we’ll have a good shot.”

The Californian finished fifth at Dover in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series last year, but has never made a start there in an XFINITY car.

Custer will also get the chance to earn a $100,000 bonus by winning the Dash 4 Cash. Each of the top-two full-time XFINITY Series drivers from the first two stages compete for the Dash 4 Cash prize in the final stage. The highest finisher among the qualifiers earns the $100,000.

“We’ll race as hard as we can to get in those Dash 4 Cash spots, but we don’t want to put ourselves in a bad position to jeopardize a solid points-paying finish,” Custer said.
