Xfinity NASCAR Ford Teams Have Quiet Day At Phoenix 2024: Video

While Cole Custer’s No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang Dark Horse led the field to green at Phoenix on March 9th, 2024, he couldn’t get his race car under him during the final stage, quietly finishing fifth despite leading 61 laps.

Custer held control of the race and even led the pack across the line for the Stage 2 win, but in Stage 3, the No. 00 Mustang became irreparably loose. Custer faded while the No. 81 Toyota TRD Supra of Chandler Smith and No. 7 Chevy Camaro SS of Justin Allgaier shot ahead. Allgaier then checked out, but lost a tire with five laps left, opening the door for Smith and the No. 81 Supra to win.

Custer’s fifth place finish made him the sole NASCAR Ford racer to finish inside the top 10. Ryan Sieg’s No. 39 Mustang finished 12th, while Blaine Perkins’ No. 29 Mustang followed in 13th place. Hailie Deegan finished 33rd after brushing the wall and bringing out a caution late in the race, while Frankie Muniz finished 30th in the No. 15 Mustang.
