Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Atlanta Motor Speedway: “I am very optimistic about going to Atlanta this weekend. Atlanta is still much a speedway-type race and the cooler temperatures will probably make it feel like the spring race in 2022. We’ve showcased good speed with our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang this season, so I hope we are able to continue that on Saturday afternoon with another top-10 run.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “There has been so much effort put into the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season and honestly, I am so excited about it. I cannot thank everyone on the AM Racing team enough for the opportunity and for taking a chance on me to lead them in the inaugural year.
“I believe we will exceed everyone’s expectations and not only will we challenge for race wins, but we will achieve them and contend for the 2023 Xfinity Series championship.”
