Moments ago, Cole Custer deflected questions about 2020
Moments ago, it was reported by motorsport.com that Cole Custer will make the move up the the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2020.
The report indicated that Cole Custer would replace Daniel Suarez.
Cole Custer is a 21 year old NASCAR driver. He’s currently in his 4th season with the NASCAR Xfinity Series and his 3rd as a full-time competitor in the series.
Moments after the report, Cole Custer had a media availability at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Custer was asked about 2020.
“Right now, I’m just trying to focus on the championship. I’ve really tried to kinda stay out of it,” Cole Custer responded to the report.
“Honestly, this is a really big weekend for us to win a championship in the Xfinity Series. If we can do that, that’s probably my focus the next week,” Custer concluded.
Daniel Suarez joined Stewart-Haas Racing for the 2019 season. He pilots the No. 41 for the team.
“We are not in the perfect situation. I wish two months ago we were done with all this stuff,” Suarez stated a few weeks back at Texas Motor Speedway regarding his plans for 2020.
“You never know. Fortunately or unfortunately, who knows, I have been in this situation for the last couple of years. Everything will be fine. We just have to work out a couple of things sponsor wise and hopefully everything will fall in place,” Suarez concluded.
Suarez is the 2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion. He has a career best MENCS finish of 2nd.
Custer previously made three starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Each of those came in 2018 while driving for Rick Ware Racing. He had a best finish of 25th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The team averaged a 32nd place finish in 2018 with all drivers combined.
Cole Custer is one of four drivers battling for a NASCAR Xfinity Series championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
