Henry Takes Aim at Nascar Xfinity Series Podium with Cole Custer and No. 00
BAYONNE, NJ – August 19, 2019 – Henry Repeating Arms, one of the leading rifle and shotgun manufacturers in the United States, has partnered with Stewart-Haas Racing with Fred Biagi (SHR) in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for a full-car sponsorship of the No. 00 Ford Mustang driven by Cole Custer in the CTECH Manufacturing 180. The race will take place at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI on August 24th and will be broadcast live by NBC Sports Network at 3:00 PM Eastern.
Custer, a 21-year-old professional driver from Ladera Ranch, California, has five wins and five poles so far this season, placing him into the NASCAR Playoffs for the third straight season. He has finished in the top-10 at both of his career Xfinity Series starts at Road America.
“Cole Custer is having a banner season and we can’t wait to see him behind the wheel of the Henry Ford Mustang at our home track,” said Anthony Imperato, president and owner of Henry Repeating Arms. “American-made Haas Automation CNC machines are a mainstay at both of our facilities in Bayonne, NJ and Rice Lake, WI, so this is a strong partnership of guns and gears that’s sure to put on a good show.”
Henry Repeating Arms produces centerfire rifles and shotguns at their 138,000 sq. ft. facility in Rice Lake WI, less than 300 miles from Road America.
“Road America is a true test of a driver’s skills and I’m very confident that my previous experiences at this track, my SHR team, and the Henry Repeating Arms Ford Mustang gives me a package for success at this year’s race,” Custer said.
