No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang Wins Xfinity Series At Portland 2023: Video

Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang in the Xfinity Series, hit his marks during a NASCAR Overtime finish to win at Portland International Raceway on June 3rd, 2023.

Custer claimed the lead in the No. 00 Mustang on Lap 76, urging his race car past the No. 7 Chevy Camaro of Justin Allgaier and the No. 48 Camaro of Parker Kligerman, who raced each other hard and opened the door for Custer to make the pass. Custer’s No. 00 Mustang then held off the No. 7 Camaro of Allgaier to win by .142 seconds at the line.

“I was just trying not to make mistakes,” Custer said of his efforts on the final restart. “I did the exact same thing [that Kligerman did]. I saw him drive in so deep, and I did the same thing two restarts ago.”

He went on, “Man, I’m just so happy. I’ve never won a road-course race before. I’ve been so close so many times, and it’s just so awesome to win this… I’m pumped for the rest of the year. We’ve got fast cars.”

Overall, Custer’s No. 00 Mustang only held command of the race for five laps.
