Homestead-Miami has been the host of the NASCAR season finale for a long period of time. However, this is now in the past as the races there have been moved to the opening stage of the season. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Cole Custer spoke about how it felt driving there, knowing it was not a championship-deciding race anymore, and shared his thoughts on driving around the track.
“It’s still a really fun racetrack to go to for the drivers. You are able to move around the track, run different lanes. I think from a driver’s standpoint it’s one of our favourite places to go to, just because you’re slipping and sliding around and able to do a lot as a driver”, Cole Custer said.
“It’s a different feel for sure that it’s not championship weekend anymore, but you just look at it as another weekend now. You just try and go there and get as many points as you can and try to set yourself up for the rest of the season”, he added.
In his first Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway Cole Custer finished 22nd.
