NASCAR Ford Xfinity Teams Non-Factors At Martinsville Fall 2023: Video

Despite showing strength the last few weekends, the NASCAR Ford teams left Martinsville disappointed after the Xfinity Series race on October 28th, 2023.

Riley Herbst was the most impressive Blue Oval racer, piloting his No. 98 Mustang to a fourth-place finish. While he was able to keep the leaders in his sights, he wasn’t able to seal the deal, but managed to avoid the melee on the last lap while several Chevy competitors had it out.

Unfortunately, Herbst was the only NASCAR Ford team to finish in the top 10, as the next-best Mustang racer – the No. 28 Ford of CJ McLaughlin – finished 13th.

Meanwhile, Cole Custer, driver of the No. 00 Mustang, will be the only NASCAR Ford team up for a championship at Phoenix next weekend, joining Sam Mayer, driver of the No. 1 Chevy Camaro; Justin Allgaier, driver of the No. 7 Camaro; and John Hunter Nemechek, driver of the No. 20 Toyota TRD Supra as the four drivers who will race for the 2023 Xfinity Series title.

Custer finished 19th at Martinsville, leading one lap during the event.

Justin Allgaier’s No. 7 Camaro got across the finish line at Martinsville in first place, barely ahead of the No. 2 Camaro of Sheldon Creed.
