Was Cole Custer worried about a call from his boss after that incident?
In 2016, Cole Custer and John Hunter Nemechek were racing on the final lap at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. They were both racing for the win.
Nemechek gave him a bump to the rear bumper in the second to last corner. He then gave him another bump in the final corner. Off the final corner and onto the front straight, Nemechek pulled along side and just pushed them both off the racing surface.
They both crossed the finish line, in the grass. Custer lost by a few inches. But, the moment, straight out of Days of Thunder will never be forgotten.
Nemechek came to a stop on the front straight away after the win. He was searching for the flag, he wanted to celebrate. Cole Custer saw this and snapped. He jumped over the pit wall and sprinted across the race track.
