Raceway.

 

Saturday afternoon’s race signifies the second race of the second half of the 2023 Xfinity Series season for the Statesville, N.C.-based organization.

 

Future Focused: With AM’s inaugural Xfinity journey set to continue at the track dubbed the New York of the South, the team has chosen veteran driver Brett Moffitt to lead the team’s campaign from the driver’s seat aboard the No. 25 Ford Mustang.

 

Moffitt, a native of Grimes, Iowa hails numerous starts across all three of NASCAR’s National Series, including the 2018 Truck Series championship with Hattori Racing Enterprises.

AM Minute: Last weekend was another busy summer weekend for AM Racing.

 

 In addition to the NASCAR Xfinity Series team being in action at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, AM Racing’s ARCA Menards Series team was roaring in action at Iowa Speedway with driver Christian Rose.

 

In his ARCA debut at Iowa, Rose capitalized on his ninth-place qualifying effort aboard his No. 32 West Virginia Tourism | Secure Testing Services Ford Mustang to run as high as sixth during the 150-lap race before a tight race car regulated the West Virginia driver to a career-best seventh place finish in the ninth race of the 2023 season.

 

Iowa’s finish marked the fifth top-10 finish in the last six races for the Statesville, N.C.-based team.

 

This weekend at Pocono Raceway, AM Racing will field an entry in the ARCA Menards Series, the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series respectively.

We’re a team whose blood bleeds Red, White and Blue every day, which is why we are proud to launch, AMerican Heroes.

 

At AM Racing, it is our mission to recognize and highlight the men and women who continue to put their lives on the line every day, as well as honoring and paying respect to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

 

We are a nation that is united by one flag, which represents all the liberties and freedoms that we would not be able to enjoy without the sacrifices of those willing to answer the call.

 

Continuing with Pocono Raceway this weekend, AM Racing will carry the AMerican Heroes livery, which will continue for the remainder of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series and ARCA Menards Series seasons.

 

The team will work to salute all the men and women, past and present, who truly deserve the title of Hero, every weekend.

Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:

 

On Pocono Raceway: “I am looking forward to Pocono Raceway this weekend. Our AM Racing team has some good momentum right now and I feel like Pocono presents the opportunity for us to steal a win from the regular players in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and throw our AM Racing team into the Playoffs.

 

“We’ve been solid the last several weeks and we know we need to be a little bit stronger, but with the Playoffs lurking, believe me, we are not going down without a fight.”

 

“Over the years, Pocono has been a pretty good race track to me and if we can dial in our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang, we’ll be a player.

 

“Pocono is a fun place to race but is definitely a momentum track where handling and speed can be critical. The balance on our AM Racing cars has been strong over the last couple of weeks and I hope we’re in a place to earn another top-10 finish on Saturday night.”

 

On 2023 Season Outlook: “We have just past the halfway point of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series and I feel like we have a lot to be proud of. I believe as the season has marched on, our team has gotten stronger and I believe the results have showcased that.

 

“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.”
