2017-11-18 Cole Custer wins his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race, ever!
The 19-year-old driver led 182 of the 200 laps, a series-high at the track.
“I haven’t done that in a while,” Custer said. “We definitely had something to prove this weekend. We were so close to making the Championship 4 last weekend. We knew we were going be really good this weekend, but our Haas Automation Mustang was unreal. “We really wanted to have a good showing at Ford Championship Weekend. Even though we weren’t in it (the Championship 4), we wanted to win.”
Sam Hornish Jr. finished 2nd, 2017 Champ William Byron was 3rd Pole-sitter Tyler Reddick finished 4th, Ryan Preece finished fifth.
