Milwaukee Mile 2023 Disappointing For NASCAR Ford Trucks: Video

The NASCAR Ford F-150 race trucks had a quiet day at the Milwaukee Mile at a rare Sunday Truck Series race on August 27th, 2023, although The Blue Oval’s results left something to be desired at the end of the night.

Matt Crafton was the highest-finishing Ford, crossing the line in fifth place after driving a quiet race. Ty Majeski’s No. 98 NASCAR Ford was the only other F-150 to finish within the top 10, finishing seventh overall. As both teams are currently in the Playoffs running, the top-10 results were a major boon to their attempt at a championship.

As for the ongoing Playoffs, the other two NASCAR Ford teams will have to pick up the pace if they want to stay in contention for the championship. As a reminder, the Truck Series Playoff field includes the following drivers, who are eligible to compete for the championship in 2023:

  • Corey Heim, No. 11 Toyota TRD Tundra
  • Zane Smith, No. 38 Ford F-150
  • Carson Hocevar, No. 42 Chevy Silverado RST
  • Christian Eckes, No. 19 Chevy Silverado RST
  • Grant Enfinger No. 23 Chevy Silverado RST
  • Ty Majeski, No. 98 Ford F-150
  • Ben Rhodes, No. 99 Ford F-150
  • Nick Sanchez, No. 2 Chevy Silverado RST
  • Matt DiBenedetto, No. 25 Chevy Silverado RST
  • Matt Crafton, No. 88 Ford F-150

Smith, who piloted the No. 38 Ford F-150 to the overall season championship last year, finished 12th, missing out on valuable Playoffs points. Ben Rhodes, meanwhile, finished 16th in similar fashion.

Grant Enfinger, driver of the No. 23 Chevy Silverado RST, won at Milwaukee for the second time this year.
