Cindric at ISM Raceway
Cindric has three NASCAR Truck Series starts at ISM Raceway and an average finishing position of 12.7 at the 1.0-mile track. Cindric’s best finish at ISM came in 2017, where he qualified seventh and finished ninth.
Austin Cindric rolled off the grid in 14th in the Xfinity Series (NXS) race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Unfortunately, the driver’s day at the track came to an end in the final stage of the race when the No. 60 Pirtek Ford Mustang spun out coming off of turn four while battling for position just outside the top 10. The damage was too extensive to repair and as a result, Cindric took home a 34th-place result.
Cindric earned his first career victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series while competing in his first full season with the Series. Cindric claimed the pole position at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and led a total of 50 laps on his way to capturing the checkered flag. In addition to the win, Cindric closed out 2017 with eight top-five and 16 top-10 finishes all while finishing third in the series point standings after qualifying for the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Cindric on ISM Raceway
“Phoenix is somewhere I’ve been more than any other track in a stock car so I have a certain comfort level going into this weekend and know, roughly, what we’ll need to be fast. Coming off a couple challenging tracks I’m excited to go somewhere I know and see where our short track program stacks up. See where our strengths are and where our improvements need to be.”
