Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway | Contender Boats 300 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing team chased their ninth top-10 finish of the season in the final intermediate race track of the season.
The AM Racing team unloaded with speed in their No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang. After a strong practice, Moffitt qualified his No. 25 AM Racing Ford Mustang sixth.
From the drop of the green flag, the team showcased they had a car capable of contending for their second top-five finish of the season after finishing fifth in Stage 1.

Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Martinsville Speedway: “I am looking forward to returning to Martinsville Speedway this weekend and the opportunity to build on our team’s top-10 finish in the spring. Martinsville is definitely a track about rhythm and finesse.
“Martinsville is also a fun race track if you can keep up with the handling and handle the (race) traffic.
“Joe (Williams Jr., crew chief) has a good notebook, and we look to build on that during practice and qualifying and hope that we can execute over 250 laps on Saturday afternoon and deliver our 10th top-10 finish in the penultimate race of the Xfinity Series season.”
On The 2023 Season: “It is hard to believe that just two races are left in the Xfinity Series season. I’d love to close it out with a pair of top-10 finishes with our AM Racing team.
“We have showcased speed the last couple of weeks, just suffered a lot of bad luck. Hopefully, that bad luck is over, and we’ll put us back in the top-10 on Saturday afternoon, where we know we belong.
“I am ready to end the year on a high note!”
