Cole Custer finally captures a win at the Phoenix International Speedway this evening in the Talking Stick Resort 75. In his last NASCAR K&N Pro Series start at Phoenix, Custer got turned off turn four as he was coming to the checkered flag by second place Gray Gaulding. Tonight, Gaulding finished last, of 29th, after an issue with the engine on the first lap of the race to bring out a caution. Custer was able to capture his third win of his NKNPSW career. Custer not only won the race, but also started on the pole after a lap of 23.565 seconds, 131.536 mph.
Brennan Newberry, driving the No. 24 NTS Motorsports Chevrolet, drove to his second top-five career finish tonight in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West at the Phoenix International Raceway. Newberry moved up to second after Brandon McReynolds had promblems with his car up-front late in the race, this caused him to slip back to fourth. Newberry came short of the win by 0.376 seconds.
Nick Drake finished in the third spot this evening and scoring his first top-five finish in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Drake was driving the No. 55 for Bill McAnally Racing, who almost put all three cars in the top-three spots if it wasn't for McReynolds trobles late in the race, in his first ever West division race.
Tonight's race will be televised on Friday, March 7th on FOX Sports 1 at 1:00 p.m. Et.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series will head off to the Irwindale Speedway. This will be the first time the series returns to that track since July of 2011.
