No. 00 NASCAR Ford On Xfinity Series Pole At Martinsville Spring 2023

The No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang of Cole Custer will take the green flag from the top spot for the Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway on April 15th, 2023. Custer and the No. 00 Mustang made a pass on the half-mile asphalt oval in 20.057 seconds at 94.411 mph.

“I’m pumped,” Custer said. “[Crew chief Jonathan Toney] and all the guys did such a great job with the car. Been working so hard, and it’s nice to have a rewarding pole here. Hopefully we can keep it up there, I mean, it’s gonna be always a wild and crazy race here, you never know what to expect.”

The second-best qualifier, the No. 20 Toyota TRD Supra of John Hunter Nemechek, had a best lap time of 20.074 seconds at 94.331 mph, followed by the No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro of Sheldon Creed in third, having made a best lap of 20.094 seconds at 94.237 mph.

Looking down the lineup, the only other NASCAR Ford that will take the green flag from inside the top 10 is the No. 98 Mustang of Riley Herbst, who will start ninth.

The Xfinity Series race at Martinsville will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 15th.
