Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway | Alsco Uniforms 250 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing were hoping history would repeat itself.
In the spring at the hybrid superspeedway track, Moffitt and the AM Racing team earned their second career top-10 finish when they posted a then-season-high sixth-place finish in the RAPTOR King of Tough 250.
On the heels of a top-five finish the week prior at the Chicago Street Course, Moffitt and the Joe Williams Jr.-led team were hopeful to continue the momentum.
After a subpar qualifying effort of 27th in the No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang, Moffitt utilized the drat following the first stage to cleverly maneuver his race car inside the top-10 where he remained throughout the remainder of the race.
A late race caution threw the race into overtime and while battling inside the top-10 on the last lap of the race, Moffitt was running on fumes when his car began to fumble coming out of Turn 4.
The stumble cost the team their fifth top-10 finish of the season and instead delivered a respectable 11th-place finish.
In 17 races this season, Moffit has delivered one top-five, four top-10s, 11 top-15s, 12 top-20s and an average finish of 16.1.
From the Pit Box: Industry veteran Joe Williams is Brett Moffit’s crew chief.
He will be crew chief for his 116th NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday and his third at the 1.054-mile facility in Loudon, New Hampshire.
In his previous 115 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, he has collected one win (Auto Club Speedway | February 2022), eight top-five and 25 top-10 finishes.
Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On New Hampshire Motor Speedway: “New Hampshire has been relatively a good track for me and I’m hoping to continue that statistic with my AM Racing team on Saturday afternoon.
“I feel like we were robbed of a top-10 finish last weekend at Atlanta, so as a team, we’re going to New Hampshire looking for some redemption. Our AM Racing team is really in a good place right now and we just need to keep working hard and future focused and I believe we’ll have a good race result.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “We’ve officially reached the halfway point of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series and I feel like we have a lot to be proud of. However, as the Playoffs are on the horizon, we are doing everything in our power to either point our way in or fight our way into Victory Lane so we can take up one of the coveted 12 spots and really bring some attention to our AM Racing team.”
