Inaugural Journey: After spending the past several seasons as a full-time team in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series, AM Racing will embark on its inaugural journey in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season with driver Brett Moffitt for the entire 33-race tour continuing with Saturday afternoon’s A-Game 200 at Dover (Del.) Motor Speedway.
Future Focused: With AM’s inaugural Xfinity journey set to continue at The Monster Mile in Dover, Del., 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.
Moffitt, 30, arrives on the scene at AM Racing after a stint at Our Motorsports.
Back For More: The Statesville, N.C.-based team will sport the signage of AM Technical Solutions on the No. 25 Ford Mustang for the 10th of 33 NASCAR Xfinity Series races this season.
Headquartered in Austin, TX, AM Technical Solutions (AMTS) was founded in 1994.
AM Technical Solutions is a Global Architecture, Engineering & Construction firm specializing in the high-tech markets. AMTS has managed over $20B of global capital projects for over 170 different customers in 24 countries and across five continents.
Midnight Madness: For Saturday afternoon’s A-Game 200, AM Racing will feature a black and white No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang paint scheme.
Before the start of the season, the team held a social media campaign where race fans were able to vote for a number of black-themed AM Technical Solutions paint schemes.
Saturday’s paint scheme was the second-most-popular scheme following the team’s all-black No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang that competed at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway in March with Moffitt finishing sixth.
The team is competing with the same chassis that captured the team’s second top-10 finish of the season in the fifth Xfinity Series race of the season.
AM Minute: AM Racing pulled double duty last weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.
In addition to Moffitt’s Xfinity Series campaign, Christian Rose made his ARCA Menards Series debut at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.
Having one of the fastest cars in the field, the West Virginia native aboard the No. 32 West Virginia Tourism | Secure Testing Services Ford Mustang was plagued by fuel pump issues throughout the 76-lap race.
Still, Rose embraced the setback and utilized his Talladega debut to continue to improve his racing craft and earned a respectable 17th-place finish in the General Tire 200.

Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway | Ag-Pro 300 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Brett Moffitt and the AM Racing team tackled the breathtaking 2.66-mile superspeedway.
Without the benefit of practice, Moffitt and the team delivered the fastest qualifying lap by a Ford Mustang in 10th on Friday afternoon.
During the race on Saturday afternoon, Moffitt quickly showed that his No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang was strong enough to win the race. Leading a race-high 20 laps, Moffitt’s attempt to win his first Xfinity Series race was derailed by two late-race spins.
Still, Moffitt was able to emerge from the carnage and post a respectable 12th-place result.
In nine races this season, Moffit has delivered three top-10s, five top-15s and an average finish of 17.3.

On Dover Motor Speedway: “I always enjoy racing at Dover. There isn’t another racetrack like it on the schedule. Overall, it has been a pretty good track for me and I have been able to finish inside the top-15 in my four previous races.
“While I was happy with our performance last weekend at Talladega, I was frustrated by the finish with our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang because of how good of a racecar my AM Racing team brought me.
“We’ll go to Dover and look to continue what we showcased at Talladega.”
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 feel like in the first four months we have definitely proved ourselves in the series, but we realize there is more work to be done.
“I believe we will exceed everyone’s expectations and not only will we challenge for race wins, but we will earn them and contend for the 2023 Xfinity Series championship.”
