Saturday September 20th, 2014

Cole Custer, a 16-year-old from Ladera Ranch, Calif., became the youngest NASCAR Truck Series winner on Saturday, taking the checkered flag in the UNOH 175 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Custer started from the pole and won in his seventh truck series start. He supplanted Erik Jones, who won last November in Phoenix as a 17-year-old, as the series' youngest winner.
