Brett Moffitt will join AM Racing fulltime in 2023 as the organization will make the jump to fulltime NASCAR Xfinity Series competition. The driver and team have worked together over the past two years with select starts in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. To bolster AM Racing’s inaugural full-time season in the Xfinity Series, the team will switch from Chevrolet to Ford which includes a technical alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing and Ford Motor Company’s Ford Performance program.
After making select NASCAR Xfinity Series starts for Our Motorsports in 2020, Brett Moffitt made the move to compete with the organization fulltime in 2021. Over the course of 80 races with the organization from 2020 through 2022, Moffitt secured twenty-two Top-10 finishes for the upstart organization.
In the 2019 and 2020 seasons, Moffitt competed with GMS Racing and Chevrolet. Over the course of two seasons with GMS, Moffitt accumulated 5 wins, 23 top-five and 33 top-10 finishes. He advanced to the Championship Final in both seasons, finishing third in the final standings both years, including a heartbreaking late race caution in 2020 that cost Moffitt his second NCWTS title.
The 2018 NCWTS season was a career defining year for Moffitt while competing with Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE). The organization had just completed its first fulltime season in 2017, finishing 9th in the Championship standings, but had yet to earn a victory. The arrival of Moffitt quickly changed that with a trip to Victory Lane in the second race of the season at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The victory at Atlanta marked the first win for HRE in the Series, as Moffitt was able to capture the first win for the organization in both the NASCAR Truck Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Wins followed at Iowa Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Phoenix Raceway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. The victory at Homestead, the sixth for Moffitt during the 2018 season, secured him the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship. Aside from Mike Skinner’s Championship in the inaugural season for the NASCAR Truck Series, Moffitt secured his first title in fewer races than any driver in the history of the Series, just 36 career starts.
Moffitt not only has a wealth of Truck Series experience, but he also has 45 NASCAR Cup Series starts and 32 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts to his credit.
A native of Grimes, Iowa, Brett Moffitt began racing at the age of 10 and quickly made a name for himself in go-karts, dirt modifieds and asphalt late models.
During his development years, Moffitt became the youngest winner of a feature event at the famed Knoxville Raceway, was named Rookie of the Year in the ASA Late Model North Series and broke several ASA Series records. Moffitt was the youngest to earn a pole position, set a track record and win a feature event in the 29-year history of the ASA Series.
Moffitt started his NASCAR career in 2009 with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. One of a select few drivers to be named to the NASCAR Next program which spotlights NASCAR’s stars of tomorrow, he compiled some of the most impressive statistics in K&N Pro Series history. In (62) career starts in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Moffitt compiled (10) wins, (10) poles, (34) Top-5’s and (45) Top-10’s. In his five fulltime seasons in the Pro Series East, Moffitt finished in the Top-3 in the Championship standings every year, including Championship Runner-up twice, in 2010 and 2013.
In 2012, Moffitt began his transition to NASCAR’s national series, making his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at his hometown Iowa Speedway. His first start in the Xfinity Series resulted in a 10th place starting effort and an impressive 9th place finish. The following year, he made his debut in the NASCAR Truck Series for Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE).
The 2014 season saw Moffitt make his NASCAR Cup Series debut at just 21 years old. With only one NASCAR Xfinity start and two NASCAR Truck Series starts on his resume, Moffitt shined in his debut at Dover International Speedway. Competing with an underfunded team in Jay Robinson Racing, Moffitt was able to start 18th and finish 22nd.
After turning heads in his first ever NASCAR Cup Series start, Moffitt was rewarded with a multi-year driver development contract with Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR). In just the second race of the 2015 NASCAR Cup season, Moffitt was again called into action to sub for an injured teammate, Brian Vickers, at Atlanta Motor Speedway. In his first career start at the track, and his first career start in the MWR #55 Toyota, Moffitt brought home an incredible eighth place finish.
The remainder of the 2015 NASCAR Cup season saw Moffitt continuing to sub for his teammate Vickers, along with competing in additional NASCAR Cup Series events for Front Row Motorsports. Although he only raced in 31 of the 36 events, Moffitt was awarded with the 2015 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year honors. Unfortunately, the MWR organization ceased operations at the end of the year.
As the 2016 NASCAR season came along, Moffitt focused on gaining valuable seat time in competitive equipment to best showcase his talents. He joined Red Horse Racing (RHR) midseason for an injured driver and immediately elevated the performance for the organization. In his first four starts with RHR, Moffitt compiled three Top-5’s, including a win at Michigan International Speedway.
In his spare time Moffitt enjoys outdoor activities, including boating, skiing, golfing, and grilling. Moffitt also enjoys spending time with his wife Stephanie, son Cooper and their dogs.
