Joey Coulter overcame adversity to drive the No. 21 Sherwin Williams Chevrolet to a 10th-place finish in his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Coulter took the green flag from the 21st position in Saturday afternoon’s History 300 at the 1.5-mile track. After slipping to the 26th position shortly after the green flag was displayed, the 21-year-old driver reported a lack of rear grip on the No. 21 Chevrolet.

Despite the ill-handling racer, Coulter drove into the top 15 before crew chief Harold Holly called the driver to pit road for service under the lap-54 yellow flag. A fast pit stop by the team placed Coulter in the 12th position for the lap-58 restart. With high temperatures causing slick racing conditions, the handling challenges persisted on the red and blue Chevrolet throughout the course of the 200-lap affair. Coulter was scored in the 17th position when another caution period slowed the field on lap 139. The Sherwin Williams team serviced Coulter with four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment before sending him back on track for the final portion of the race. Armed with a new pair of dancing shoes, the Miami Springs, Fla., native began working his way up through the field, surviving multiple restarts and crossing the finish line in the 10th position.

Joey Coulter on his race: “Today was great. I’m so proud of Harold (Holly, crew chief) and the RCR guys. They did an awesome job putting this car together and had fast stops all day. I can’t thank Sherwin Williams enough and everyone at RCR that helped make today happen. I didn’t expect to have a top-10 finish in my first Nationwide Series race, but this is really cool.”
