29-Year-Old Driver

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Moffitt saw a modest downturn in stats last season. His one-win and 16 Top-10 finish campaign was a bit below the bars set in the prior two seasons. Moffitt and GMS Racing parted ways at the end of 2020 and now he'll race for Niece Motorsports in their No. 45 entry. Moffitt has won races and finished inside the Top 3 of the standings for two different race teams the last three seasons, so the move isn't too much cause for concern. The 28-year-old veteran is in the prime of his racing career and should win races and challenge for championships with any good race team. Niece will pair Moffitt with crew chief Phil Gould. Gould led Ross Chastain to a three-win, 18 Top-10 finish and runner-up to the truck series title in 2019, so he knows what it takes to win. The duo of Moffitt and Gould should prove to be a great combination in the upcoming season. Read Past Outlooks

2014
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.
