Cindric’s most current achievement: Ending Chevy’s three-win streak

Austin Cindric is living the life other 16-year-olds dream of. Saturday, he co-drove the No. 158 Multimatic Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R-C to success in the Continental Tire SportsCar Obstacle, breaking a three-win streak by the No. 6 Stevenson Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
