● Five races remain on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule and Sunday’s race on the Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway Roval serves as the final road-course event of the season. For Chase Briscoe and the No. 14 Ford Performance Racing School team, it’s a return to the track where Briscoe and crew chief Richard Boswell earned their first win in 2018.
● Briscoe took home the trophy in the inaugural NASCAR Xfinity Series race on the Roval in 2018 with Boswell atop the pit box. In just their fourth race together, the No. 98 team started ninth, and Briscoe took the lead for the first time on lap 18 and led until lap 26. He regained the top spot on lap 32 and stayed out front for the final 24 circuits en route to his first of 11 career Xfinity Series wins. The victory led to a fulltime ride in SHR’s No. 98 for 2019, and he returned to the Roval that year to secure a ninth-place finish after leading a race-high 21 laps.
● The Bank of America Roval 400 marks Briscoe’s third Cup Series start on the 2.28-mile, 17-turn road course. In last year’s event, which was the final race in the Round of 12 of the NASCAR Playoffs, Briscoe started 17th and finished ninth to advance to the Round of 8. The top-10 finish was Briscoe’s best on a road course since the introduction of the NextGen car at the outset of the 2022 season, and he bettered it this year with a finish of sixth on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
● Ford Performance Racing School reunites with Briscoe at the track that serves as its home base. Ford Performance Racing School is the only school to wear the Ford oval, and Ford is the only full-line vehicle manufacturer to offer product-focused experiential driving programs exclusively to the owners of its complete line of performance vehicles, from cars to trucks to SUVs.
