NASCAR Ford Teams Non-Factors in Xfinity Michigan 2023: Video

The NASCAR Ford teams weren’t really anything to worry about at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, August 5th, 2023, leading only a handful of laps and unable to challenge the leaders as the laps ticked down at the two-mile paved oval.

Riley Herbst, driver of the No. 98 Ford Mustang, finished just outside the top five, bringing his race car home in sixth place. He was the best-performing Blue Oval team, and only led one lap during the race due to a round of pit stops. The No. 25 Mustang of Brett Moffit led four laps, but was only able to finish 17th, all was said and done.

Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 NASCAR Ford, is one of two Mustang teams inside the cutoff line for the postseason Playoffs for the championship. Custer’s 725 points have him in third in the Playoffs standings, along with his two wins and five Stage wins this year. He tails John Hunter Nemechek, driver of the No. 20 Toyota TRD Supra, and Austin Hill, driver of the No. 21 Camaro. Herbst, driver of the No. 98 Mustang, currently holds down 12th, with 574 points, no wins and one Stage win.

Nemechek’s No. 20 Supra took home the victory on Saturday night.
