Austin Dillon called to NASCAR hauler after contact with Custer
RELATED: Full race results " Series standings Austin Dillon and Cole Custer were racing hard in Saturday's DC Solar 200 at Phoenix Raceway when Custer's No. 00 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford clipped Dillon's No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet on Lap 191 -- and sparked some chippy driving. As a result of the contact, Dillon's No. 2 Chevy went spinning, while Custer was able to save his car and continue the race. But during the resulting caution, Dillon drove up and made contact with Custer under yellow, forcing the No. 00 Ford into the outside wall. As a result, Dillon, his crew chief Justin Alexander and his spotter were called to the NASCAR hauler after the race. "It was 100 percent my fault," Custer said after the race. "I got in there too deep, got really loose going in and couldn't put any wheel into it. That was pretty much it. Just all my fault. Something that won't happen again. We had a great race leading up to that. ... It is unfortunate I cost us and the 2 car there. "It definitely sucks for us points-wise but I guess you can kind of expect that when he gets taken out," Custer continued on Dillon's response. "I can understand how frustrated he is about it. It is what it is. I will try not to have that happen again." Dillon was scored 33rd, while Custer finished 21st. The red flag eventually was displayed for clean-up. "The No. 00 car just overdrove the corner, missed the corner and took me out with him," Dillon said. "It sucks. It was a hard hit. ... I was asked to the NASCAR trailer after the race because they believe I retaliated against the 00 car. I don't think it will be that bad, though. We'll probably just enjoy an ice cold Coca-Cola together and discuss things." Custer again took blame for the incident on Twitter post-race, and Dillon responded. Cost us and the 2 a good finish, 100% my fault. Happy with how much better we got our car, pretty good there at the end. — Cole Custer (@colecuster00) March 18, 2017 Thanks for this ✌ https://t.co/29RX8vAmep — Austin Dillon (@austindillon3) March 18, 2017
