Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Atlanta Motor Speedway: “I am looking forward to returning to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend with the AM Racing team. After our success there in the spring, I think we can return with a shot at our first NASCAR Xfinity Series win of the season.
“As a team, we have learned a lot together since March and coming off our season-high fourth-place finish on the streets of Chicago, the momentum is here right now for our AM Racing team and I look forward to capitalizing on it with our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang on Saturday night.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “Through the first 16 races, we have definitely showcased speed, but we know we have to turn that speed into better performances.
“Chicago was a great accomplishment of that. We are at the point of the season where we need to press the attack if we are going to make the Xfinity Series Playoffs. We certainly have made gains over the last few weeks and we just need to keep going in the right direction.”
