Despite not being a full-time driver, Cole Custer is a familiar name in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet driver became the youngest winner in NASCAR national series history last year when he took the checkered from the pole at New Hampshire (16 years, 7 months, 28 days). Three months prior to his New Hampshire triumph, he etched his place in NASCAR’s record books at Gateway Motorsports Park outside of St. Louis as the youngest national series pole winner (16 years, 4 months, 22 days).

Dover is a place I’ve been fast at in the past, so if we can replicate that and keep our nose clean, we can compete for a win,

Don’t forget Custer competes for JR Motorsports, owned by NASCAR’s 12-time Most Popular Driver Award Winner – Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The talented youngster will run his second race of the season on Friday in the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway (5:30 p.m. on FOX Sports 1). He will attempt to improve on his 16th-place March finish at Martinsville.

“I’m excited heading to Dover,” Custer said. “We’re bringing a strong truck and all the guys have been working real hard to make that possible.”

The NASCAR Next member placed 14th at the “Monster Mile” last season, moving up 14 spots from his 28th qualifying position.

“Dover is a place I’ve been fast at in the past, so if we can replicate that and keep our nose clean, we can compete for a win,” Custer said. “It’s my job to stay calm and focused the whole time because things happen in a hurry there.”
