Brett Moffitt Earns Best Career NCWTS Finish at Pocono Raceway

Brett Moffitt earned his best finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Saturday at Pocono Raceway with a third-place finish. In two practice sessions at the 2.5-mile superspeedway on Friday, Moffitt posted the 14th and 13th fastest times in the red and black No. 11. On Saturday morning, qualifying was cancelled due to inclement weather and the field was set per the NASCAR Rule Book, with Moffitt rolling off in the 15th position for the 60-lap event. In an event marred by a record nine cautions, Moffitt visited pit road for service from crew chief Scott Zipadelli and team twice, getting four fresh Goodyear tires and Sunoco fuel each time, once on lap 14, and once on lap 30. Early in the race, Moffitt reported that he was battling a slight loose handling condition in his Toyota Tundra, but he was soon working his way toward the front of the field. With 15 laps to go, Moffitt restarted in ninth, and after several cautions, he crossed the finish line in third, his best NCWTS finish to date.

Brett Moffitt Quotes:                                          
"A lot of it was being patiently aggressive. Our strategy had us in the back a lot for the majority of the race and we kind of had to work our way back up past older tires every time it would cycle through. We had to be careful, but all in all the guys at Red Horse (Racing) did a great job. It was a complete 180 from yesterday. We were struggling and I wasn't sure our truck was going to be that good today. We didn't make a single adjustment on it during the race so we really had a great truck. Scott (Zipadelli, crew chief) called a great race, great strategy and got us up front when it mattered."
