Martinsville (Va.) Speedway | Dead On Tools 250 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing team chased their ninth top-10 finish of the season in the penultimate race of the season.
The AM Racing team unloaded with solid speed in their No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang. After a solid practice, Moffitt qualified his No. 25 AM Racing Ford Mustang 16th.
From the drop of the green flag, Moffitt maintained in the hunt for a strong finish. Through strategy, Moffitt would find himself inside the top five during Stage 3, but an array of late-race cautions opened the opportunity to pit for scuff tires, with Moffitt hoping to be able to drive back through the field.
Despite his best efforts, chaos ensued over the final laps, and Moffitt was trapped in traffic but avoided a massive melee on the last lap of the 256-lap race to maneuver a respectable 20th-place finish.
In 32 races this season, Moffit has delivered one top-five, nine top-10s, 16 top-15s, 21 top-20s, and an average finish of 18.0.
From the Pit Box: Industry veteran Joe Williams Jr. is Brett Moffit’s crew chief.
He will be crew chief for his 131st NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday afternoon and his eighth race at the 1.0-mile facility in Avondale, Ariz.
In his previous 130 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, he has collected one win (Auto Club Speedway | February 2022), eight top-five and 30 top-10 finishes.
Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Phoenix Raceway: “Phoenix Raceway, for the most part, has been a good race track for me in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck and Xfinity Series. I love the type of racing the track produces, and you really have to apply yourself as the track changes throughout the race.
“We had a solid showing with our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang in the spring, and I’d love nothing more than to build on that finish and score a top-10 finish on Saturday afternoon.”
On The 2023 Season: “The end of the season is here, and we have much to be proud of at AM Racing. The team has done an incredible job building a competitive program in such a short amount of time. We came up short of making the Playoffs, but we showcased a lot of speed and put ourselves in contention for some strong finishes.
“I’d love nothing more than to go to Phoenix Raceway this season and end the year with our 10th top-10 finish!”
