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

 

In addition to the NASCAR Xfinity Series team being in action at Pocono Raceway, AM Racing’s ARCA Menards Series team was also roaring in action at Pocono Raceway with driver Christian Rose.

 

After a mechanical failure in practice, Rose stormed from his 25th place starting position aboard No. 32 West Virginia Tourism | Secure Testing Services Ford Mustang and charged inside the top-10 where he remained for the majority of the race.

 

In the closing laps of the race, Rose challenged for sixth but had to roll out of the throttle to avoid spinning with another car. Rose recovered to finish ninth to post his sixth top-10 finish in the last seven races for the Statesville, N.C.-based team.

Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:

 

On Road America: “I’m optimistic about Road America this weekend. I haven’t had the best of luck there as a driver, but I am hoping that our recent string of positive finishes will carry over to Road America on Saturday afternoon.

 

“Honestly, I am hoping that Road America will present an opportunity for our AM Racing team to steal the win on Saturday afternoon and capture a spot in the Playoffs.

 

“The road courses in the NASCAR Xfinity Series always provide opportunity and I am hoping we are able to take advantage of that this weekend.

 

“We are bringing the same car that we ran at Chicago and it delivered us a top-five finish. I’m hoping for a little better than that at Road America.”

 

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.”
