No. 00 NASCAR Ford Takes Xfinity Homestead 2023 Pole

The No. 00 NASCAR Ford Mustang of Cole Custer will show the way to the Xfinity Series green flag at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the race on October 21st, 2023, putting him in excellent position to take a much-needed victory.

Custer’s lap time of 32.068 seconds at 165.604 mph around the 1.527-mile oval track was fast enough to propel him to his sixth division pole position this year. Considering that Custer is one of the eight drivers still eligible for the Xfinity Series Playoffs, it’s critical that he perform well in order to avoid elimination before the Championship 4 contenders are set.

John Hunter Nemecheck’s No. 20 Toyota TRD Supra, meanwhile, will start beside Custer’s No. 00 NASCAR Ford, having posted a best lap of 32.768 seconds at 164.704 mph. They’re tailed by a pair of Chevys – the No. 7 Camaro of Justin Allgaier and the No. 21 Camaro of Austin Hill – while Sammy Smith’s No. 18 Supra rounds out the top five.

Brett Moffit’s No. 25 Mustang qualified sixth, and Riley Herbst, driver of the No. 98 Mustang and last weekend’s Xfinity Series winner, will start seventh.

The green flag will drop on the Xfinity Series race at Homestead on Saturday at noon E.T.
