Custer dominates at Chicagoland

Cole Custer held off Joey Logano in Saturday’s Camping World 300 at Chicagoland Speedway and captured his fourth NASCAR Xfinity Series victory of the season.

Custer led 151 of the 200 laps in route to his sixth career victory.

“At these low grip race tracks it is a little bit of everything and that is a testament to our whole team and everyone at the shop that set up the car. When you go to these low grip race tracks and can be good through a whole run it isn’t easy to do. I want to thank everyone at Haas Automation and Stewart-Haas Racing because we are going to be taking it to ‘em in the summertime,” Custer said in victory lane.

Polesitter Logano finished second, Christopher Bell finished third, Michael Annett fourth and Brandon Jones rounded out the top five. However, Bell’s car failed post-race inspection (car was too low) and NASCAR disqualified his third-place finish. Bell will receive one point for last place.

“We just weren’t quite good enough. Cole and that whole Stewart-Haas team just beat us. They were faster in every department. We just weren’t quite good enough overall. After practice, I was able to look at Cole’s times and it was obvious that he was the fastest car,” Logano said.

The series heads next to Daytona International Speedway on Friday, July 5 for the Circle K Firecracker 250.
