NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Cole Custer may have won the race last week, but he definitely lost the celebration.
Custer, who drives the No. 00 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing, practically dominated the Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway, leading for 89 laps and winning his fifth Xfinity Series race of the season. The 21-year-old Ladera Ranch, California native has also had himself quite the impressive victory streak, winning three of the last six events. With those impressive performance numbers, you’d that Cole Custer would have more swag than Kyle Busch.
Now, you’d also think that, considering that he’s gotten to Victory Lane so much this year, Custer would have his celebratory routine down pat. Apparently, that’s not the case. After his big win at Kentucky, when it came time to climb on top of his car and chug two beers Stone Cold Steve Austin style, let’s just say that Cole had a little bit of a balance issue.
“Well I don’t look too good now falling off the car like that,” Custer told NBC Sports. “But that was an unbelievable race. They just gave me a great car. I wasn’t happy with it at the start of the race, but, I mean, they just made the right adjustments. I can’t thank them enough.
Fortunately, Custer was able to have a quick recovery and laugh the whole thing off. But, because this is 2019 and you can’t do so much as blow your nose without it going viral, NASCAR Twitter pretty much had a field day with Custer’s post-race gaffe.
