Ford Mustangs Finish 1-2 At Charlotte

Brad Keselowski and Cole Custer made it a 1-2 finish for Ford Performance in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race Saturday night in Charlotte, NC. The win marked Keselowski’s second NXS win of the season and fourth NXS win for Team Penske this year.

“Congratulations to Brad on his 30th Xfinity win and the entire Team Penske organization,” said Doug Yates, President and CEO of Roush Yates Engines. “Brad drove a great race. Our team at Roush Yates Engines takes great pride in developing and building the Ford FR9 Carb engines for all the Ford teams and to see the 1-2 finish was really special.”

Keselowski and Custer finished the race just like they started, side-by-side. Keselowski and the No. 22 Fitzgerald Glider Kits Mustang won the pole Saturday morning while Custer from Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) qualified his No. 00 Haas Automation Mustang second.

The Ford Mustangs led a race high 107 laps out of the 204 lap race. Keselowski, who led three times for 77 laps, including the final 44 while Custer led twice for a total of 28 laps. After enduring a red flag rain delay and a late race caution with 2 laps remaining, producing an overtime finish, the No. 22 took the checkered flag. The win was Ford’s fifth NXS win of the season and 120th overall Roush Yates Engines NXS win.

“I couldn’t ask for a much better start for Memorial Day Weekend than to bring home a win,” commented Keselowski in Victory Lane. “I’m really proud of everyone on the team, Brian here and the sponsors, Fitzgerald Gliders and Ford for the car that was well-prepared and in a spot to be able to execute a day like today, but I think it was definitely a perseverance day.”

Ford teammates Kaz Grala and Chase Briscoe finished 10th and 11th respectively.

Keselowski was also Ford’s highest finisher in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 race on Sunday, finishing fourth while Kurt Busch from SHR was eighth and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. from Roush Fenway Racing rounded out the top-10.

Ford Performance teams will be heading northeast to Pocono on June 3rd for the Pocono 400. Reference the full 2018 schedule on Roush Yates Engines.
