Stewart-Haas Racing’s Cole Custer currently is the only rookie driver with a win this season and the only one currently in position to move into the Playoffs. If Custer is the only rookie to make the Playoffs, he will win the 2020 Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in the NASCAR Cup Series. This season Custer has put up one win (Kentucky), two top fives and six top 10s in 25 starts. Tyler Reddick currently leads the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings by 94 points over second place Cole Custer. But Reddick is currently 19th in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoff outlook standings, 69 points behind William Byron in the 16th and final postseason transfer position. Both drivers will be looking for redemption at Daytona this weekend as both finished with DNFs in the season-opening Daytona 500 – Custer (Rear End) and Reddick (Crash).
