As of mid-May, Brett Moffitt was content competing in the Camping World Truck Series with Red Horse Racing. But then, the long-time organization closed it's doors, leaving the Iowa native without a ride.
Moffitt, 25, went home to Iowa to compete in just his second career XFINITY Series race in July, finishing 11th with GMS Racing. After that, crickets.
In August, BK Racing announced it had signed Moffitt to compete at Watkins Glen International, where he placed 32nd in thed BK Racing machine. The following week at Michigan International Speedway, another 32nd, while returning a month later at Chicagoland Speedway to finish 37th.
This past weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Moffitt finished - in the #83 machine, but he an Ron Devine, owner of BK Racing have come to an agreement that they plan on finishing 2017 together.
"Yeah, that's the plan as of now as far as I know," Moffitt told Frontstretch regarding his status. "We're going to keep going at it and we'll see. It's good. It keeps me kind of relevant. It gets me to the track and stay in front of people. That's the best part of it."
As everyone knows, NASCAR is a sponsorship-driven entity, and if someone comes along with some money, Moffitt may need to look elsewhere.
"We love Brett, he's great," Devine added. "He's a great driver and we think we can get him sponsored and that's what we're trying to do. He's working on it. We're working on it and we're happy to have him a part of our organization. There are a couple of other drivers who have some sponsors that may boot him for a few races here and there, but if that doesn't come together we're going to try and run Brett."
