Joey Coulter Back on Target and Ready to Shoot Up the Standings
Coulter's junior year in the NCWTS has been anything but what he expected entering the 2013 season with a new team and new manufacturer, but "Mr. Consistency" has finally hit his stride in the last five races. In the first seven races of the season, Coulter's average start was 15.0 and his average finish was 16.7 with only one top-five finish. The No. 18 Toyota Tundra driver's average start in the last five races of the season is 9.4 and his average finish is 8.8 with two top-five finishes. In fact, over the last five races Coulter's 174 points collected are the fifth most during that span and have allowed the talented youngster to decrease his deficit on the top five in the championship standings. After seven races he found himself 52 points outside the top-five, now entering this week's NCWTS event at BMS he has narrowed the gap to a mere 25 points.
With finishes of fourth and sixth, respectively, in two career starts at the .533-mile bullring, "Consistent Coulter" isn't gun shy when it comes to the concrete oval. The Miami Springs, Fla. native is back on target with his No. 18 KBM team and ready to shoot up the standings.
