CHARLOTTE, NC :: McCallister Precision Marketing (MPM) and Nesbitt Racing Enterprise announce another solid performance for 13 year old Cole Glasson in the second points race of the Southeast Super Truck Series at Anderson Motor Speedway.
Cole showed up leading the Rookie title race by only one point. During practice, Cole quickly picked up the racing line, gained speed each time out, and consistently ran in the top 5 in times. Cole was .17 off pole in qualifying, which placed him in the 8th position in a tight field. Starting on the outside when the green flag dropped, Cole found himself shuffled back to the 11th position before falling in line and beginning his hard charge towards the front. By lap 50, he was passing for the 2nd position. On a restart on lap 51, Cole was caught up in a race incident that sent him to the back of the lead lap.
When the field took the restart, Cole was on a mission to work his way back to the front. Quickly passing through the field, Cole was back in the top 5 with 15 laps to go. Taking the checkered flag, Cole finished the race in 3rd position and earning his first top 5 finish in his short full size stock career. His solid results in the first two point’s races has him leading the Rookie of the Year title by 11 points and moving into 3rd spot for the Series Championship.
