When the NASCAR spotlight shines brightest, Cole Custer puts on his best performances.

Cole Custer won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway after taking the pole and leading a race-high 60 laps.

It was his second win of the season. He also won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series race at Iowa Speedway against the top teams from the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West.

The 15-year-old Custer became the youngest driver to win a K&N Pro Series East race at Iowa Speedway. The win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was special too, because it was close to home for many of his crew members

"This one was a lot more hectic, so it feels a lot better," Custer said. "All my guys are from up here. They really wanted to win this race. It feels really good. All my guys are really excited. It’s awesome to win at New Hampshire [Motor Speedway], too."

Custer has four top-five finishes in his first 12 races on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. He has two top fives at Iowa Speedway and another top five at Richmond International Raceway. He made history at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as well, becoming the youngest driver to win a race at that track.

He passed Daniel Suarez on lap 87 of the North American Power 150 and led the final 18 laps, including a green-white-checkered flag finish, to win the race.

"I was a little bit worried there at the end, but it seemed like we had the car to beat at the end," Custer said. "I was able to get by him. There was no other way to pass. It was just really hard to pass. I had to shove him up a little bit, just try to get a run off the corner. We raced really clean. It was fun racing with him."

Suarez finished second, his fifth top-five finish of the season.

"I feel the communication with my crew chief and everybody on the whole racing team, they did an awesome job," Suarez said. "I feel we were pretty strong. We are learning a lot. The next race is Dover. I’ve never been to Dover. I’m excited to be there."

Cale Conley was third, his fourth top-five finish in 12 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races this year.

"It was a solid run," Conley said. "Started fourth, we were tight there the first half. We came in and loosened the car up, but we overshot a little bit. We struggled there. All around a pretty good run. Just happy to be here in New Hampshire."

Dylan Kwasniewski, who leads the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East standings, was involved in a crash on lap 34. He spun out while battling Custer for the lead in the race and ended up finishing a season-worst 24th.

Brett Moffitt finished in seventh place and cut into Kwasniewski’s lead. Kwasniewski has a 23-point lead over Moffitt with two races to go.

The next race on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule is the Drive Sober 150 at Dover International Speedway on September 27, 2013.
