Xfinity NASCAR Ford Chases Chevy Across Line At Roval 2023: Video

The No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang of Cole Custer was able to hang close to the leaders at during the Xfinity Series race at the Charlotte Roval on October 7th, 2023, but unfortunately, his car didn’t handle quite right when he needed it to. Instead, Custer settled for a second-place result while the No. 1 Chevy Camaro of Sam Mayer darted across the finish line in first.

On a restart on Lap 63, Custer took the green flag ahead of Mayer, but he was passed a short while later as the Chevy driver muscled around him in Turns 3 and 4. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to regain the position.

“We struggled on the short run, for sure,” Custer said after the race. “It’s frustrating. There are definitely things on the replay I could have done different, but our guys did a great job all day, getting our car to where we could compete for a win – but we just needed a little more.”

Even so, Custer advances into the Round of 8 – although as it stands right now, that’s as far as he’ll get, as he’s below the cutoff line that will determine which four drivers are able to compete in the 2023 Xfinity Series championship. He’s currently the only NASCAR Ford driver still eligible for the Playoffs.
