Brett Moffitt Equipped For Sprint Cup Debut at Dover

Jay Robinson Racing, affiliate to Michael Waltrip Racing, announced that Brett Moffitt will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Dover International Raceway this weekend.

Moffitt, 22, competed in the NASCAR K&N East Pro Series for five season registering nine victories after 61 career-starts, however, an  championship eluded him; his best finish in the championship standings was second (twice).

Though, despite the K&N East experience, Moffitt has limited tenure in the NASCAR Touring Series, running two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events and a single NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

Moffitt, however, isn’t concerned the limited experience will affect him this weekend at Dover, especially since he’s captured two K&N East triumphs at the Monster Mile.

“I’m honored Jay asked me to drive his car at Dover,” Moffitt said. “The Monster Mile is a tough, but fun track and I can’t wait to get there. I won the 2009 & 2010 K&N East races at Dover so I think I’ll feel comfortable there, but SprintCup racing is a whole new world.”

Moffitt, piloting from Grimes, Iowa, understands the expectations: qualify (as the team will be forced to qualify in on time) and gain crucial track time.

“I appreciate all support I have received from Jay Robinson, TRD and everyone at Michael Waltrip Racing for making this happen,” Moffitt explained. “My goals are to qualify well and learn all I can during the race.”

Robinson, who formed an alliance with Michael Waltrip following last season, is expecting a solid result from the developing driver, in fact, he believes he could have a diamond in the rough, considering the respect Moffitt holds in the garage area.

“Brett is a very young driver with a lot of experience for his age,” said Robinson. “If you ask around the garage, you will learn he’s one of the most respected young men in the sport who just hasn’t had a chance at a full-time ride. We think he has a lot of talent and will show it at Dover.”

Moffitt will attain the driver seat of the No. 66 Toyota which has been occupied by Joe Nemechek, primary driver, and Jeff Burton, secondary driver.

The FedEx benefiting Autism Speaks 400 at Dover will be held this Sunday, June 1, 2014.
