Whitt and Gold Bond Camry Soar to 16th Place Finish at Daytona

Daytona International Speedway is the breeding ground for action-packed, edge of your seat racing; NASCAR fans were not disappointed during last night’s Subway Firecracker 250. Making its’ Daytona debut, Cole Whitt and the Gold Bond Camry teamed up to try and tame the famous World Center of Racing.

The California native made his third start at the 2.5-mile, palm tree lined superspeedway. Whitt started the 12th Annual Subway Firecracker 250 from the 23rd spot and was quick to draft with TriStar teammate Mike Bliss. Whitt raced as high as third and competed in the top-10 for most of the 100 lap event. While racing in the draft at over 190 MPH Whitt’s Gold Bond Camry became minimally involved in the final caution with 10 laps to go. With virtually no damage, Whitt rallied into the top-20 to salvage a respectable 16th place finish in his No. 44 Gold Bond Toyota.

“I greatly appreciate the support of my sponsors Gold Bond and Moen for coming on board this weekend. I had a really strong Toyota Camry that could push all day long,” said Whitt. “We had a car capable of a top-five finish if not a win if the circumstances were right. I hate it for my guys that we got shuffled around, but I am grateful we were able to finish in the top-20,” Whitt continued.

Friday night’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway was the sixth race for Whitt with TriStar Motorsports. Whitt’s 16th place finish helped maintain the 21st spot in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Owner Points Standing for the No. 44 team. Going into New Hampshire Whitt will have a weekend off from driving the 44, allowing rookie driver Chad Hackenbracht to make his first career NASCAR Nationwide Series start.
