Bad Boy Mowers teamed up with BK Racing for last weekend's race at Talladega and we couldn't be happier with Cole Whitt and his record weekend.
Cole Whitt led his BK Racing teammates to the checkered flag with a 15th-place finish in the No. 26 Bad Boy Mowers Toyota Camry at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Sunday afternoon. Whitt was followed by JJ Yeley in the No. 83 Burger King / Dr Pepper Toyota Camry who finished 42nd, and Alex Bowman in the No. 23 Dustless Blasting Toyota Camry who finished 43rd after being caught in "the big one."
Returning to Talladega Superspeedway for the second time this season, Whitt collected his fifth top-25 starting position of the season to roll off 22nd for Sunday’s main event. Throughout the early stages of the race, the Sunoco rookie contender rode around logging laps while allowing the race to unfold. Making strategic moves while drafting through the field, Whitt avoided all of the on-track incidents to have the Bad Boy Mowers Toyota Camry in a competitive position during the closing stages of the race. Despite a pit miscue prior to the first attempt at a green-white-checkered finish, Whitt was able to make good moves through the field and draft up to the 15th position by the time the checkered flag waved.
"This weekend’s race at Talladega Superspeedway was a lot of fun," commented Whitt. "Our Bad Boy Mowers Toyota Camry was a great racecar and we were able to come home with a great finish. We were able to put ourselves in a good position throughout the afternoon and avoid several accidents on the track. Superspeedway races can be tough because you not only need a good race car, but you also need luck to fall your way, and fortunately it did this weekend."
Next weekend, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will return to Martinsville Speedway for the second time this season. The Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 from Martinsville Speedway will be broadcast on ESPN, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday, October 26.
