CONCORD, N.C. – For NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie Austin Cindric, being busy is a part of life. A few of the racing series that Cindric has competed in include NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series, K&N Pro Series, ARCA Racing Series, IMSA, and Global Rallycross just to name a few.
Friday’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 will be a bit busier than normal for Cindric and his No. 19 LTi Printing Ford F-150 Brad Keselowski Racing team.
Before qualifying and racing at the 1.5-mile track at Charlotte Motor Speedway, he will be a part of the graduation ceremony at the Cannon School in Concord, North Carolina. Cindric, a member of the 2017 graduating class will attend the morning ceremony before driving up the road to the Speedway.
In addition to the festivities that go with graduation and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Friday is also the birthday for Cindric’s mom.
Cindric laughed about just how busy he will be,
“I’m usually pretty good at messing up other people’s logistics by trying to race too many things in one day. It almost makes sense that I have Graduation on the same day as a race day. And it’s my Mom’s Birthday, so it’s a big, big day overall. It’s going to be fun, but very, very busy.”
In 10 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts, Cindric has just one Top 10 finish, which came in last weekend’s race at Kansas Speedway.
He also has six ARCA Racing Series starts where he has one win, four top fives, and five Top 10s. His one victory came at Kentucky Speedway, another 1.5-mile track, in 2016. In addition to that, three of Cindric’s five Top 10s came on 1.5-mile ovals.
Cindric and his team will now look to earn not only Cindric a graduation gift, but also a birthday gift for his Mom in the Truck race at Charlotte.
