Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Brett Moffitt
Tyler Riddick won consecutive Homestead races in 2018 and 2019, and has the speed and deep starting position combination on which fantasy players should capitalize.
C.J. Radune is picking Riley Herbst for his Higher-Risk Lineup for Herbst’s consistency on these types of tracks; he’s a constant top 15 finisher.
The Truck series races on the first of its four road courses Friday, and Austin Hill could offer fantasy players finish differential points if he does well on the Daytona course.
Noah Gragson scored two wins last season with one of those victories being the 2020 edition of this race, where he led 15 laps.
Defending race winner Grant Enfinger has performed well at this track the last few years and Friday shouldn’t be an exception.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
The 2018 Truck Series champion was unable to successfully defend his title last year, but he still had a dominant season. Moffitt racked up four victories and near-carbon copy of 13 Top-5 and 17 Top-10 finishes to his championship season of two years ago. The GMS Racing star would make the championship 4 round of the playoffs and race for the title at Homestead, but would pull up short finishing fifth-place in the season finale. With more laps led and a slightly better average finish than 2018, you could make the argument that Moffitt was better last year. He'll be paired with a new crew chief this season, Chad Norris, but there's little concern with the change. Moffitt is an elite level talent, and he'll win multiple races and challenge for the championship once again in 2020.
Moffitt shocked the NASCAR world when he marched to six victories and ran away with the truck series championship crown at Homestead last November. He did it with the relatively new Hattori Racing, who was competing in just their second full-time season in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. The even more shocking development was the team had to let Moffitt go at the end of the season due to sponsorship issues. However, the young driver landed solidly on his feet at GMS Racing. He will take over the reins of the strong No. 24 Chevy Silverado and look to defend his title in 2019. Moffitt will be teamed with crew chief Jerry Baxter and they will be the outfit to beat right out of the gates this season.
Signed in early February with Hattori Racing to pilot the team's No. 16 Toyota Tundra full-time in 2018.
As of mid-January it's not been announced that Moffitt is taking over the No. 11 RHR Toyota, but it is expected. Moffitt filled in brilliantly for Matt Tifft in this truck last year when he was sidelined with a brain tumor. In just six starts he picked up a victory (Michigan) and four Top-10 finishes. That certainly got our attention and the attention of the owners at Red Horse Racing. Moffitt has become a journeyman driver in NASCAR, with starts across all three top touring divisions the last four seasons. He'd love a full-time gig with this well-equipped race team. It would seem to be a marriage made in heaven, and we expect it to happen. If so, the potential for wins and Top-10 finishes is obvious.
Moffitt wasn't really expected to make his Sprint Cup Series debut in 2015, but Brian Vickers' blood clots and inconsistency in the No. 34 FRM team ushered in the young driver to an unexpected rookie campaign. Moffitt debuted in the second race of the season at Atlanta and recorded a shocking eighth-place finish in the No. 55 Toyota. While that would be the only top-10 finish of his season, his flashes of brilliance throughout the year bolstered expectations and opportunities to continue racing. With Michael Waltrip Racing folding at the end of last season, it leaves Moffitt a bit up in the air going forward. He was a developmental driver for that organization and now he's a free agent as we enter 2016. This talented, young driver will certainly land some part-time or full-time opportunities to race going forward.
