Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway | Tennessee Lottery 250 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing team attempted to record their fourth top-10 finish of the season.
After a disappointing practice effort, Moffitt and the No. 25 Southeast Lineman Training Center Ford Mustang qualified 26th and made a series of adjustments ahead of the 15th Xfinity Series race of the season.
The adjustments worked as Moffitt avoided the early race chaos and quickly maneuvered through the field and found his No. 25 AM Racing Ford Mustang inside the top-10 during Stage 2.
In Stage 3, Moffitt battled for his fourth top-10 of the season but was collected in a last lap, last corner melee that saw him spin coming to the checkered flag along with several other cars – finishing 14th.
In 15 races this season, Moffit has delivered three top-10s, nine top-15s, 10 top-20s and an average finish of 17.2.

In his previous 113 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, he has collected one win (Auto Club Speedway | February 2022), seven top-five and 24 top-10 finishes.
Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On The Chicago Street Course: “I could not tell you what to expect this weekend, but the good news is that I’m in the same boat as everyone else.
“I’ve never competed on a street course before, but this is a big moment for NASCAR and the Xfinity Series. It should be a very compelling race with a varying list of strategies and unknowns.
“For us, it’s making the most of the opportunity. We will try to unload as fast as we can with our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang and make strides during practice and qualifying.
“During the race, we’ll just look to keep our fenders intact and hope we’re in a position for a strong finish at the time of the checkered flag.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “Through the first 15 races, we have definitely showcased speed, but we know we have to turn that speed into better performances.
“Chicago is going to be one of those wildcard races where I’m not sure anyone knows what to expect. We want to survive and anything inside the top-10 will feel like a win and gives us the confidence to return to Atlanta next weekend at a track that we were so strong earlier in the season.”
