So We Meet Again: Whitt and Gold Bond Team-up to Take on the Glen

Cole Whitt and his TriStar Motorsports team welcome back Gold Bond to the No. 44 Toyota Camry. As one of the top selling medicated powders in America, Gold Bond will serve as the primary sponsor on Whitt’s Camry for this weekend’s Zippo 200 during the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the 2.45-mile road course of Watkins Glen International on Saturday.  

Located on the southern tip of Seneca Lake in New York’s wine country, the 11-turn road course will post a challenge for 40 NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers who are used to turning left. Whitt, who grew up racing open wheel cars on dirt tracks across the country, has become quite a road course racer in recent years.  Most recently, the 22-year-old stock car standout from Alpine, California finished eighth while driving for TriStar Motorsports at Road America’s 4.048-mile complex course back in June.


“I’m looking forward to having Gold Bond back on the car this weekend,” said Whitt. We finished 16th the last time we had them on the car in Daytona [July] and I can only hope we can secure an even better finish for them. I feel that my team has a lot in common with Gold Bond’s philosophy. We’re strong, hard-working and trusted and our gold Gold Bond Camry will be fast,” Whitt continued.


Whitt will make his second road course start of the season and his second career start at Watkins Glen International. Live coverage of the Zippo 200 can be seen at 3 p.m. ET on ABC and you can listen live on MRN Radio.
