Cindric on Fontana
“I’ve never raced there; it’s one of three tracks that I’ll visit for the first time this season; The other two being Richmond and Darlington. Michigan is similar in size and shape to Fontana and I’ve had some success there. In 2017, I was able to lead a lot of laps and battled for the win. I’ve spent some time on the sim prepping for Fontana and even got some advice from Mark Martin when he was at the shop the other day. He described Fontana as a hybrid mix between Atlanta and Michigan. It’s got the characteristics of Atlanta, but the size and shape of Michigan and it’s all about momentum.”
In his first career Xfinity Series start at ISM Raceway, Austin Cindric drove his Pirtek Ford to a 16th-place finish.
Cindric earned his first career victory in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series while competing in his first full season with the Series. Cindric claimed the pole position at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and led a total of 50 laps on his way to capturing the checkered flag. In addition to the win, Cindric closed out 2017 with eight top-five and 16 top-10 finishes all while finishing third in the series point standings after qualifying for the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
