Brett Moffitt set to drive the No. 25 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series
Brett Moffitt is set to move from Our Motorsports to AM Racing for the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. The announcement was made on Monday.
The 30-year-old will pilot the No. 25 car. AM Racing is making the switch from Chevrolet to Ford and have formed an alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing.
Stewart-Haas will prepare the machines. Roush-Yates will build the engines for the team.

“This is an integral move for AM Racing and our future in NASCAR,” said AM Racing team principal Kevin Cywinski.
“AM Racing is committed to ensuring that we are taking the necessary measures to not only give our team but Brett (Moffitt) the opportunity to be competitive from the time we show up to Daytona in February – which is something this group deserves.
“We are also grateful to have formed a technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and Ford Performance. With their leadership and direction – it should offer the opportunity for our team to contend for a spot in the Xfinity Series Playoffs in our inaugural season.”
Stewart-Haas Racing comments
Stewart-Haas Racing fielded a single Xfinity entry for 2022. For 2023, the Xfinity stable expands to a two-car team with drivers Riley Herbst and Cole Custer.
“There’s strength in numbers and having another Ford team with Roush Yates horsepower in the Xfinity Series is something that’s very beneficial for Stewart-Haas Racing,” said Greg Zipadelli, chief competition officer, Stewart-Haas Racing. “This is a partnership that can accelerate AM Racing’s growth while simultaneously benefitting our own efforts in the Xfinity Series.”

AM Technical Solutions will serve as one of the primary sponsors on the No. 25 car. The Rasmussen Group and its subsidiaries through Concrete Supply and JMT Trucking will also sponsor the effort. Destiny Homes also returns to sponsor Moffitt.
“I am beyond excited about this next chapter in my career,” said Moffitt. “Wade (Moore), Kevin (Cywinski) and the entire AM Racing team are putting the pieces together to make sure that we not only have a team that can run up front but win races in 2023.
“I was impressed by the team’s long-term plan and without question, I know that we will be able to accomplish the goals that we have set forth. I look forward to representing AM Racing as driver of the No. 25 Ford Mustang.”
Moffitt won the NASCAR Truck Series championship in 2018. This will be his debut full-time season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Moffitt has claimed two top-5s in 84 Xfinity Series. He previously won 12 Truck races.
