Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Nashville Superspeedway: “I am looking forward to getting to Nashville Superspeedway. I was able to finish inside the top-10 last June and I’d like to think our AM Racing team is equally able to duplicate or better that finish with our No. 25 Southeast Lineman Training Ford Mustang.
“I am excited to represent a new partner for AM Racing and into the sport and I think as hard as the AM Racing team has worked on this Ford Mustang, we should have an opportunity to collect our fourth top-10 finish of the season.
“We are coming off a respectable effort on the road courses at Portland and Sonoma, but we all know that we need to start delivering more top-10s and get closer to those top-fives and hope we can be in a position to score a win and put us in the Playoffs.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “Through the first 14 races, we have definitely showcased speed, but we know we have to turn that speed into performances.
“Nashville is the beginning of a crucial summer stretch for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and we are doing everything we can to make sure we are prepared to press the attack and put ourselves in the Playoffs with AM Racing’s first career victory.”
