Brett Moffitt Quoteboard:
On Watkins Glen: “It has been a while since I’ve raced at Watkins Glen, but I always enjoy running there. It is a fast road course with unique elevation changes and a bus stop. I feel really good about heading back to another road course with our AM Racing team, especially after a top-10 finish last weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course.
“I feel like we learned a lot as a group that can only continue to enhance our performance on the track this weekend and perhaps with a strategy, we can inch forward towards a top-five or maybe even a win on Saturday afternoon.”
On 2023 Season Outlook: “We have just passed the halfway point of the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series, and I feel we have much to be proud of. Our team has strengthened as the season has marched on, and I believe the results have showcased that.
“We have rebounded from the hiccups that we had from the two prior races and bounced back with a top-10 finish last weekend. We are reenergized and ready to head to Watkins Glen and fight for more than a top-10 finish.
“With the Playoffs 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.”
