2 Comments

Cole Custer shot to the top of the speed charts in Friday’s lone Camping World Truck Series practice.

The 17-year-old son of Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Joe Custer, the younger Custer led all drivers with a top speed of 96.068 mph.

Cameron Hayley was second-fastest at 95.622 mph, followed by Johnny Sauter (95.530), Joey Logano (95.415) and series points leader Tyler Reddick (95.410.).

Friday morning’s practice session was cancelled due to rain, prompting NASCAR to combine two originally scheduled shorter afternoon sessions into one 2 1/2-hour session.
