NASCAR Xfinity Series Driver Cole Custer’s No. 00 Ford Mustang to Feature Thompson Pipe Group as Primary Partner for Three Events in 2019
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. – Stewart-Haas Racing with Fred Biagi announces that driver Cole Custer’s No. 00 Ford Mustang will feature Thompson Pipe Group as a primary sponsor for three NASCAR Xfinity Series races in 2019.
Thompson Pipe Group will make its debut at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, Saturday, March 16. Two more races follow; Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, Saturday, May 25, and Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, Saturday, Nov. 2.
Thompson Pipe Group CEO Ken Thompson is an avid racing fan and supporter. His son Dean and Custer grew up competing against each other on a Southern California quarter-mile racetrack.
“Seems like yesterday that they were racing at the Orange Show,” Thompson said. “Eight years later, I’m not surprised to see Cole’s success.”
Custer is in his third full-time season with Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The 21-year-old from Ladera Ranch, California, has two wins, 22 top-five and 47 top-ten finishes, and six poles in 72 career Xfinity Series starts. The No. 00 Ford Mustang also claimed the 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series Owner’s Championship.
“It’s an honor to have Thompson Pipe Group as a partner on our No. 00 Ford Mustang,” said Custer. “They’re a great company that helps provide infrastructure throughout the United States and Canada, and they’re from Southern California. We want to go out and deliver strong performances each week and deliver for Thompson Pipe Group both on and off the racetrack.”
In 2018 Thompson Pipe Group served as a primary sponsor for Custer. At Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, Custer started tenth and finished fourth.
