September 21, 2015- Charlotte, NC – McCallister Precision Marketing (MPM) and Nesbitt Racing Enterprises announce another top 10 for 15 year old Texas driver, Cole Glasson, in the highly competitive Southeast Super Truck Series. Cole would enter the 11th race of the season sitting in the 3rd position just two points out of 2nd. While he would leave in the same position, he lost a few valuable points which will cause 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the championship points to be decided in the last race of the season. Cole has put together a solid qualifying streak of 11 straight races qualifying in the top 5 and posted his 9th top 10 of the season in his 11 starts.
Glasson would make a statement right out of the gate posting the fastest time of the session and would remain on top of the charts throughout all three practice sessions. He felt confident going into qualifying and based on his first lap was headed for his 2nd pole of the season, but a brush with the wall cost him valuable time. Cole would qualify 5th and have a rough start to the race where he would have contact with the inside wall on an aggressive move that spun him and sent him to the back of the field. After charging from 16th position up to 6th, he quickly took some steps back as he lost his brakes which remained an issue the remainder of the race. He would eventually end up salvaging a 9th place finish.
Glasson stated, “The team game me a really fast truck and I made a mistake in qualifying that cost us and also made an aggressive move at the beginning that also cost us in the long run when we lost our brakes.” He went on to thank his sponsors of Starkey Mortgage, ProSoap, AM Technical Solutions, MPM Marketing, Driven Steering Wheels, K1RaceGear, Dallas Karting Complex, Comet Cleaners, and Real Sports Websites.
Tonya McCallister, Glasson’s agent, states “Cole was disappointed with the results but we will re-focus and be ready for Tri County to try and go for the runner up position.” Martin Nesbitt, Team owner, went on to say, “We are disappointed that we had a mechanical issue that cost us a much better finish, Cole was fast all weekend and we had a great shot at the win but came up short.”
