"Wow, what a battle by my No. 2 Anderson's Maple Syrup team today to claim our fifth-consecutive top-five finish at one of my most challenging tracks. Our car was ok in practice this morning, but we lacked what we normally have for speed and handling. Part of that is also Richmond Raceway just being such a challenge for me to drive."
COLE CUSTER: “Yeah, we have always had speed everywhere we have gone so far. I think we get better as the race goes on and we make adjustments and then when we come back to some of these tracks a second time we will be even better. We have the speed right now and I think we can get even better but we are definitely doing things right at this moment.”
Cole Custer set a dominating pace earning the victory in Friday night’s ToyotaCare 250 at Richmond Raceway.
COLE CUSTER, No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang (Finished 1st) -- THAT LAST RESTART, YOU WERE ABLE TO GET AROUND AUSTIN CINDRIC AND DRIVE TO THE WIN: “I tried something different on that last restart and it didn’t work out. It just stacked everybody up so much and I got hit in the back and it spun the tires. We just had a great car. When I got the restarts right it was good. I don't know. It is a great race for us. Our first short track win and second win of the year. It means a ton.”
RICHMOND, Va. – Cole Custer said on Friday afternoon that his No. 00 Stewart-Haas Racing NASCAR Xfinity Series team might be ready to peak in time for the Playoffs.
COLE CUSTER, No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang --“We are pretty close right now. We just need to figure out a way to bea little better. I think that will come in time. I think our wholeteam is kind of still figuring things out and sorting through things,especially with Mike (Shiplett) being new to the team this year. Everyrace we come back to a second time we will be better. We are figuringthings out. We have speed right now, it is just a matter of gettingbetter later in the year.”
