NASCAR Ford Starting Second Row For Truck Series Texas 2023

A pair of NASCAR Ford F-150 race trucks were fairly quick during qualifying at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 1st, 2023. While they weren’t fast enough to secure the first row, one will take the green flag from Row 2 when the race starts.

Ty Majeski will show the way for the Blue Oval teams in his No. 98 F-150,  having secured the third-best starting spot with a time of 29.216 seconds at 184.83 mph. By comparison, polesitter Nick Sanchez made a lap of 29.109 seconds at 185.51 mph in his No. 2 Chevy Silverado RST, followed by the No. 51 Silverado of Jack Wood with a time of 29.204 at 184.906 mph.

Starting behind Majeski’s No. 98 F-150 will be the No. 11 Toyota Tundra of Corey Heim in fourth, with the No. 42 Chevy of Carson Hocevar in fifth place. The next-best NASCAR Ford driver will be the No. 99 F-150 of Ben Rhodes, who will take the green flag from 10th.

The green flag will drop at Texas on Saturday, April 1st, 2023 at 4:30 p.m. ET. It’s worth noting that the Truck Series is the only NASCAR division racing at Texas this weekend, as the Xfinity and Cup Series are both at Richmond Raceway this weekend.
