FAVORITES


Favorite Tracks

Iowa Speedway and Knoxville Raceway

Favorite Racing Moment

“It’s hard to pick between winning the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway in 2018 and winning the Championship later that year. Winning at my hometown track on Father’s Day weekend, in front of family and friends, with Destiny Homes as the sponsor is really special. But winning the Championship later that same season is something I am very proud of as well.”

Least Favorite Racing Moment

“2020, Phoenix Raceway, leading with only a couple of laps to go and the Championship on the line. Caution comes out inside of 3 to go, setting up a green-white-checkered finish as we were at sitting duck. The shot at winning second Championship in 3 years went out the window with that untimely caution.”

 

FAST FACTS


NASCAR Xfinity and Truck Series:

  • Brett Moffitt will make the move to Niece Motorsports in 2021, competing full time for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) championship points in the No. 45 Chevrolet Silverado.
