Cole Custer might be 13 points behind Brennan Poole for the final berth in the NASCAR XFINITY Series Championship 4, but he doesn’t lack confidence heading into Saturday’s Ticket Galaxy 200 at Phoenix Raceway.
“I think there’s no reason why we can’t go to Phoenix and have a good run,” Custer said. “It’s a place I’m confident at and our short-track program is starting to be where we want it. If we keep running like we have been and don’t run into bad luck, we’ll be locked into the (Championship 4).”
Custer finished 21st in the XFINITY Series’ March visit to Phoenix this season, but does have a win at the one-mile track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.
The No. 00 Stewart-Haas Racing driver enters Saturday’s race in good form, finishing in the top 10 in seven of his last nine races. He placed fifth at Texas last weekend.
“I think anything is possible for us and there’s no reason why we don’t belong in the Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead,” Custer said.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
