Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Go Bowling Ford Mustang:                                   

“I was worried after our qualifying effort but once we got going Mike Shiplett and the SHR guys made some good adjustments and got me to the front. We would start a run off tight and it would over rotate to where I couldn’t get on the gas as much as the other teams but we fought through that and had a great points day as we start the playoffs and head into the ROVAL.”
