Martinsville (Va.) Speedway | Call811.com 250 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing team tackled the legendary Virginia short track for the first of two trips this season.
Dodging Mother Nature during practice and qualifying on Friday, Moffitt was able to establish the 16th fastest lap during NASCAR Xfinity Series qualifying on Friday afternoon.
Starting mid-pack, Moffitt began crawling through the field until he was spun out in Turn 4 and lost a lap in the process. Just before the end of Stage 2, Moffitt was able to earn his lost lap back and utilize the entirety of Stage 3 to climb his No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang through the field.
Mounting some of the quickest lap times in the field, Moffitt returned to the top-10 in the closing laps of the race to finish ninth and mount his third top-10 finish of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.
In eight races this season, Moffit has delivered three top-10s, four top-15s and an average finish of 18.0.

Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Talladega Superspeedway: “Talladega is definitely a crapshoot, but it is a perfect opportunity for our AM Racing team to pick up some stage points and put ourselves in a position to win on Saturday afternoon.
“I know we did not have the fastest car in qualifying at Daytona, but our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang was handling very well during the race and we were able to spend a lot of time inside the top five before we ran into an issue late in the race.
“We have some momentum on our side right now given how well we were able to turn around our night at Martinsville last weekend. I’d love nothing more than to leave Talladega with another strong finish and earning as many points as we possibly can.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “There has been so much effort put into the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season and honestly, I am so excited about it. I cannot thank everyone on the AM Racing team enough for the opportunity and for taking a chance on me to lead them in the inaugural year.
“I feel like in the first three months or so we have definitely proved ourselves in the series, but we realize there is more work to be done.
“I believe we will exceed everyone’s expectations and not only will we challenge for race wins, but we will earn them and contend for the 2023 Xfinity Series championship.”
