California Kid Takes On the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020

Cole Custer has gone from racing quarter midgets at age 4 to regularly contending for a NASCAR Xfinity Series championship to competing in the elite NASCAR Cup Series where he drives the No. 41 Haas Automation Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR).

In an 18-year-and-counting career, the 22-year-old Custer has collected wins and records befitting drivers twice his age. This was on display throughout 2019, where in his third and final Xfinity Series season, Custer amassed a career-high seven wins and six poles, with 17 top-five and 24 top-10 finishes and a total of 922 laps led. After being the runner-up in the championship standings for a second straight season, SHR promoted Custer to its flagship NASCAR Cup Series program for 2020.
