Custer given Xfinity win after Hamlin DQ’d, Darlington results

Cole Custer has been awarded the win in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway.

Denny Hamlin initially was declared the winner of the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 but NASCAR later ruled that Hamlin’s No. 18 car did not meet the minimum requirement from left-front height.

“It’s crazy. It’s a way to win it. It’s a “strange” way to win it,” Custer told NASCAR.com in the Xfinity Series garage after news of the disqualification seeped out. “I wish I would’ve been able to pass him. Him being low isn’t why he won that race. At the same time, that’s the rules we live by and everybody has the same deal. Everybody’s been bit by it at some point, so it’s cool. We get to have some more playoff points and this is the momentum that we needed.”
