One NASCAR Ford Finishes Top 10 For Xfinity 2023 Spring Vegas Race: Video

The NASCAR Ford Xfinity Series teams have yet to find their footing this season, as the only top-10 Blue Oval finisher in Saturday’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was the No. 98 Ford Mustang of Riley Herbst. Thus far, across all three of NASCAR’s top series, Fords have been chasing Toyotas and Chevys across the line.

Herbst quietly guided his No. 98 Mustang to an eighth-place finish on March 4th, 2023, tailing a slew of Chevy Camaro race cars and a handful of Toyota Supra machines. Outside the top 10, the No. 0 of Cole Custer secured a 12th-place finish, followed by the No. 28 Mustang of Alex Labbe in 18th, who managed to sneak inside the top 20 after starting 32nd.

No NASCAR Ford racers led any laps during the race around the 1.5-mile asphalt oval, and at the end of the day, the race came down to a three-way battle between three Chevy Camaro racers, with the No. 21 Camaro of Austin Hill making a daring pass with two laps left to secure the victory.
