NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rhino Linings 350 Notes and Entry List

NCWTSCuster Cruises At NHMS; Becomes NASCAR’s Youngest Winner

At this time of year, most 16-year-olds worry about finding a date for homecoming or practicing for their driver’s license tests.

Cole Custer isn’t your typical 16-year-old.

He keeps himself busy by competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he became NASCAR’s youngest national series winner at 16 years, seven months and 28 days, taking the checkered flag in the UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Don’t chalk the accomplishment up to beginner’s luck either. Custer won in dominant fashion, leading 148-of-175 laps from the pole, setting the track record (131.897 MPH) and outdueling defending NCWTS champion Matt Crafton on the final restart with four go-arounds remaining.

Custer’s triumph marks the third time in just over a year the record for the youngest NASCAR national series winner has been broken. The previous record-holder was fellow NASCAR Next member Erik Jones (17 years, four months and nine days old), who took it from last August’s mark-setter Chase Elliott (17 years, 9 months, four days) at Phoenix International Speedway in November. No stranger to age records, Custer became the youngest pole winner in NASCAR national series history at Gateway in June.

Following the race, UNOH presented him with a Presidential Scholarship.

In seven starts this season, Custer boasts five top-10 finishes. He will compete in two more NCWTS events on this year’s calendar, on Oct. 25 at Martinsville Speedway and Nov. 7 at Phoenix International Raceway.
