California native, Cole Whitt returns to TriStar Motorsports as the driver of the No. 14 Toyota for the Phoenix NASCAR XFINITY Series race.

Whitt continues to cultivate his partnership with Rinnai, the number-one selling brand of tankless water heater in the U.S. and Canada, who will serve as his primary sponsor. Cole's NASCAR career includes six years on the circuit and races in which Cole has competed in each vitally important building block series such as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.-TriStar Motorsports NC

Cole Whitt has scored three top-30 finishes in his last seven attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

His most recent top-30 came in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He was seven laps off the pace in 27th. His best finish this year came at Kentucky Speedway when he finished within one lap of the leader in 21st.

Cole Whitt has been remarkably strong in his Martinsville career with top-25s in half of his starts.

Whitt also has a pair of top-20s with a best of 18th in 2014. That came in a BK Racing entry and his Premium Motorsports ride this week might lack a little speed in comparison. Still, a top-30 is well within reach as he has finished worse than that only once in his career on this track. This spring, he finished 30th after starting 31st.

This weekend will be a busy one for NASCAR driver Cole Whitt, as he will be doubling his racing activity at Martinsville Speedway while he competes in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) and Sprint Cup Series races.

He will pilot the RBR Enterprises No. 92 BTS/RBR Ford F-150 in the Texas Roadhouse 200 on Saturday before jumping into the Premium Motorsports No. 98 Chevrolet SS for the Sprint Cup Goody's Fast Relief 500 on Sunday.

Cole Whitt has never finished worse than he started in seven Talladega SuperSpeedway starts.

Whit finished 31st after starting 31st in October 2013, but every other result has been an improvement over his qualification effort. This May, he scored a very impressive 18th-place finish after starting 36th to add 18 place-differential points to his fantasy total.
Oct 21 - 11:30 AM

In seven previous starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Cole Whitt has never finished on the same lap as the leader.

The closest Whitt has come was to finish within three laps of the leader in the 2014 Coca-Cola 600. That is also his career-best finish of 27th. Whitt finished 28th in his next two starts, but has slipped into the 30s in his last two.
Oct 7 - 6:51 PM

Cole Whitt has started four races at New Hampshire and has been running at the end of every show. His best effort came last spring when he improved from a 28th-place qualification effort to finish 24th.

Whitt missed this July’s race in favor of Ryan Ellis who finished only 37th. His current No. 98 Premium Motorsports team has fewer resources than last year’s Front Row Motorsports and Whitt should be expected to finish somewhere in the mid-30s.
Sep 22 - 1:14 PM

Cole Whitt posted the slowest lap among the open drivers in the first round of qualification for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway. He will not race on Saturday night.

Make certain Whitt is not on any of your rosters. This week, Dylan Lupton was the 41st entry. He will start near the back and could be this week’s bargain basement driver.
Sep 9 - 6:29 PM

Cole Whitt has made three previous attempts at Darlington Raceway and none of them have been incident-free. He parked early in 2012, lost 73 laps in 2014 due to an accident, and could not get past lap five last year before damage forced him to retire.

Whitt will make his fourth start at Darlington with a fourth different team. It is difficult to develop chemistry with so many changes and Premium Motorsports needs to conserve resources. The Track Too Tough To Tame is not the best place for lightly-funded teams.
Sep 1 - 7:41 PM

Cole Whitt has made eight previous starts on the two-mile tracks and he has finished better than he started every time. This spring, he started 36th at both Auto Club Speedway and Michigan International Speedway before finishing 26th and 27th respectively.

Last August, Whitt moved up to 27th from a 35th-place qualification effort in the 2015 edition of the Pure Michigan 400. He has also been running at the end of all eight races and on the lead lap in four. Whitt is liable to fly under the radar this week, which makes him even more valuable.

Cole Whitt would apparently have the lion’s share of resources at Premium Motorsports. While teammate Reed Sorenson has finished at the very back of the pack on this track type in 2016, Whitt scored a 30th at Martinsville Speedway and 28th at Bristol Motor Speedway. He did not get a chance to qualify at Richmond International Raceway when weather canceled qualification.

Whitt has put his best foot forward on this track type. With the exception of one effort with Stacy Compton in 2012, he has been running at the end of every race he started in the Cup series on courses less than a mile in length. His best result at Bristol was a 27th earned for Front Row Motorsports last spring.

Cole Whitt had finished better than he started in nine consecutive races entering the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen. In the road course contest, he finished 28th after qualifying 22nd. His streak began at Dover International Speedway this May when he advanced from 36th to 27th.

Whitt’s best overall efforts came on the restrictor-plate, superspeedways of Daytona International Speedway and Talladega SuperSpeedway. This May he started 36th and finished 18th in the Geico 500; in July, he was 11th after starting 35th.
Aug 10 - 1:44 PM

In five previous attempts at Pocono Raceway, Cole Whitt has finished better than he started in every event. This June he improved seven positions from a 37th-place qualification attempt before getting stranded in 30th with a Rear Gear failure.

Whitt qualified 36th for the Pennsylvania 400 with a lap of 171.716 mph. He may need a little help in the form of attrition to move forward in a sixth consecutive race and as a result is just on the cusp of being a good value.
Jul 30 - 12:02 PM

Cole Whitt moved out of the No. 98 cockpit this week in order to make room for local favorite Ryan Ellis. This did not result in a lot of speed, however, and Ellis posted only the 40th-fastest lap of 124.977 mph—nearly two seconds slower than leader Martin Truex Jr.

Ellis is not going to be overly tempting, but fantasy NASCAR success is about taking good notes. Watch the No. 98 this week, but don’t even think about starting them.
