Last Race Recap: Cole and the Bond Suss Racing team fought back from various gremlins that crept up in their first race together at the Rattler 250. Radio issues appeared out of nowhere on the pace laps and Cole was forced to pit early to fix them, setting the stage for a climb through the field even after he was later involved in an accident. Despite all the issues, Cole and the BSR crew ended up tenth after the 250-lap contest.
Sing A New Song: Over the last few visits to Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, Cole’s luck has been less than desirable, having him ask the music gods to sing him a new song while in Music City USA this weekend. In last year’s 50-lap super late model prelude to the Music City 200, Cole had misfortunes which saw him finish outside the top ten. In a pro late model race there a few months later, he was caught up in an early accident when the track was blocked in turn two. Bond Suss has multiple races at Nashville under his belt and guided Kyle Busch Motorsports to victory there in the past, so Cole is hoping to pick up what he can from Bond during this upcoming weekend.
Another Dance: Cole and Bond Suss Racing have enjoyed their partnership thus far through one race and Nashville’s event will be the second outing for the pair together. Following Nashville, BSR and Cole have planned to do the US Short Track Nationals at Bristol with other possible races on the docket in the future.
Cole’s Thoughts: “I’m really looking forward to getting back into the seat of the No. 55. They have had fast cars at Nashville so it will be exciting to see what we can do this weekend. I’m ready to be back in the seat, for sure. Even though Bond’s experience here will likely give us some advantage, we are still a new pairing trying to figure each other out. Everything at the Rattler went great but there were still some spots where we can improve our performance and become stronger. I think with Bond’s experience he will be able to help me as a driver focus on things such as line, feel, and work with me on things like that.”
