NASCAR Ford Xfinity Teams Non-Factors At Texas 2023: Video

Even as the Xfinity Series season winds down, the NASCAR Ford teams seem to be struggling to find speed, especially when it comes to keeping up with the Chevys and Toyotas – as was evident at Texas on September 23rd, 2023.

Cole Custer’s No. 00 Ford Mustang was the best Blue Oval team on Saturday night. He even competed with the dominant car, the No. 7 Chevy Camaro of Justin Allgaier, for the lead during Stage 2. However, he did not have the speed to seal the deal at the end, finishing sixth, behind a slew of Toyota TRD Camry and Camaro entries. Even so, Custer has already made it to the next step of the championship, having mathematically secured his berth in the penultimate Playoffs round.

Meanwhile, other NASCAR Ford teams weren’t so lucky. The No. 39 Mustang of Ryan Sieg suffered a wreck, though he managed to rally back to an 11th-place finish. JJ Yeley’s No. 31 Mustang was also involved in a wreck, finishing 28th overall.

John Hunter Nemechek’s No. 20 Camry led the field across the line, continuing his dominating performance in 2023.
