Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Homestead-Miami Speedway: “It’s hard to imagine there are just three races left on the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule. I am looking for a quick reset with our AM Racing team after a few frustrating races at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL and last weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“I know we have the speed in our No. 25 Ford Mustangs. We have proven that all year long. We can unload strong and keep tweaking our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang throughout practice, qualifying, and the race.
“Me and Joe (Williams Jr., crew chief) have enjoyed some prior success together at Homestead with a top-10 finish in 2021, and I’d love nothing more than to capture our 10th top-10 finish of the season on Saturday afternoon.”
On The 2023 Season: “We are just three weekends from the conclusion of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season, and I’d love nothing more than to close it out with a stack of top-10 finishes with our AM Racing team.
“It’s officially the homestretch and the final three races of 2023. I’d love to recover from the frustration of the ROVAL and Las Vegas and put us back in the top-10 where we know we belong
“From Homestead, it’s onto Martinsville and Phoenix. There is much to be desired over the season’s final races and to end the year on a high note.”
