Cole Whitt and the No. 44 TriStar Motorsports crew welcomed Ferguson back on board their Toyota Camry at Iowa Speedway. Looking to build on their 16th place finish there in June, it appeared that Whitt and his crew started from right where they left off after qualifying 16th for Saturday night’s 5th Annual US Cellular 250. Beginning under the mid-western sun and ending under the florescent lights of “America’s Place to Race”, the 250 lap event produced side-by-side, action packed racing. Whitt who battled a tight car for most of the race, managed to avoid the events four caution flags to claim 20th in his eighth race while driving for TriStar Motorsports.
“My guys worked really hard trying everything they could think of to find a balance in our car,” said Whitt. “I greatly appreciate Ferguson coming on board again. I really wish I could have finished better for them.”
