Cole Custer wins Pacific Office Automation 147, Portland Xfinity Results

Cole Custer claimed his first win of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season on Saturday winning the Pacific Office Automation 147.

The Xfinity Series went to Portland International Raceway for a stand alone event. Sheldon Creed would begin the race on the pole. Sammy Smith would have shifter issues early while Chandler Smith would miss the chicane and have to get a pass though penalty. Brennan Poole would be the first car to go behind the wall. Near the end of the stage Stefan Parsons would stop on the track to bring out a caution. During the caution the car of Daniel Hemric would catch on fire extending the yellow. The race would resume with two laps to go in the first stage. Creed get around Nemechek in the final corner to claim the first stage.

Cars all came down pit road for non competitive pit stops giving teams three minutes to make chances without losing positions. During the break Brad Perez would take over for Landon Honeyman who was ill. On the restart Josh Berry would go around falling to the back of the field. On the final lap of stage 2 Nemechek spun Creed as Cole Custer rallied back for the stage win.

Custer would miss the chicane on the restart ceding the lead to Justin Allgaier and falling back to ninth. On lap 56 Creed paid Nemechek back dumping him in turn 2 during a battle for second. With all the chaos behind him, Allgaier would grow his lead to three seconds.

Nemechek’s frustration would only grow when teammate Sammy Smith got into him in turn 1. He would retaliate by dooring Smith in turn4 sending both cars to the pits.

Parker Kligerman would get around Creed for second as Allgaier continued to creep away. Riley Herbst would pull off the track smoking on lap 67 bringing out the caution again.

A debris caution would set up a green-white-checkered finish. On the restart Kligerman would jump to the inside of Allgaier and Creed and all three cars would lock up allowing Custer to go around. 

Allgaier would attempt to catch back up to Custer getting to his bumper but not around.
