Brett Moffitt won the 2015 Rookie of the Year honors, beating out second-place Matt DiBenedetto and Jeb Burton by five points. NASCAR’s program allows drivers to drop their worse races and provides bonuses for top-10 finishes.
The 2015 field was relatively slim, but Moffitt was a solid option on several occasions. His Atlanta Motor Speedway eighth-place finish and a 17th at Bristol Motor Speedway in April made him a good fantasy value. When he missed it was not by much; he only finished outside the top 35four times during the season. Wed, Dec 9, 2015 02:24:00 PM

Brett Moffitt started his season in a relief role for the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing team and scored an eighth-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March. That spring boarded him to 13 top-30 finishes and the 2015 Rookie of the Year title, many of which were earned in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports ride vacated by David Ragan.

Moffitt barely missed the top 30 in the season finale. He was 31st in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway after starting 42nd.

Brett Moffitt should finish somewhere in the 25th- to 35th-place range this week at Phoenix International Raceway. In four starts on short, flat tracks in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford he has finished in that range each time.

Moffitt qualified 40th this week, so he should be good to score anywhere from five to 15 place-differential points. That does not quite put him in a range to make him attractive to fantasy players.

Brett Moffitt should be able to finish among the top 30 this week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In his four flat track attempts this year, his worst result was a 32d at Phoenix International Raceway and the rest were top-30s.

Moffitt qualified 34th for the 5-Hour Energy 301, but he was in that same range at Pocono Raceway last month. He advanced six positions in the Axalta 400 to finish 30th.

Brett Moffitt should land somewhere in the low- to mid-30s this week unless he experiences some type of trouble in the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway. All three of his previous starts with Front Row Motorsports on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks have resulted in finishes of 31st through 37th.

Moffitt will garner a lot of attention because of his eighth-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the Michael Waltrip Racing No. 55, but even with strong equipment he could manage only a 29th at Texas Motor Speedway later in April.

Brett Moffitt did not know he would contend for Rookie of the Year honors in 2015 when the season started, but persistent health issues for Brian Vickers opened a seat and gave him an unexpected opportunity.

Moffitt has proven to be capable of driving up to the strength of the car with a top-10 at Atlanta Motor Speedway in his season debut in the No. 55. Another top-20 was earned for Michael Waltrip Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway, but his best finish in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports was a 28th at Dover International Speedway.

Michigan International Speedway was the site of one of Brett Moffitt’s part time runs in 2014 . He qualified a collaborative Michael Waltrip Racing/Jay Robinson entry 34th for this race last year and finished in that same position.

This spring in the primary No. 55 ride, Moffitt finished 22nd on the other two-mile track of Auto Club Speedway. That was the last time this season that he finished on the same lap as the leader, but he will be a great dark horse if he can repeat that feat.

Brett Moffitt will make his second Dover start this week in Front Row Motorsports’ No. 34. Last spring he raced a Jay Robinson / Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) collaborative effort to a 22nd-place result.

Moffitt has been better in MWR cars than those for Front Row. Now that he is running fulltime, his efforts have softened somewhat and he should only be used if he qualifies modestly enough to earn positive place differential points in games that award them.

Front Row Motorsports will keep 22-year-old Brett Moffitt as the primary driver of its No. 34 entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, including multiple races with primary sponsorship from CSX and its "Play It Safe" initiative.

The arrangement will provide consistency behind the wheel of the No. 34, whose seat was filled by multiple drivers over the past 10 races. Front Row Motorsports had initially filled the seat vacated by David Ragan on a week-to-week basis while the Sprint Cup veteran filled in for an injured Kyle Busch in the No. 18 car. Now that Ragan has moved to the No. 55 of Michael Waltrip Racing for the remainder of 2015 season, FRM is grateful to have the full-time availability of the up-and-comer Moffitt, a 2015 Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate, who has 16 Sprint Cup career starts with a top finish of eighth earlier this season at Atlanta.-Front Row Motorsports

Brett Moffitt has made all three starts for the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year. Two of these came with Michael Waltrip Racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway, while the other was in the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He will continue to gain experience with a fourth start this week.

Moffitt’s best finish was a dramatic eighth at Atlanta early this year subbing for Brian Vickers, but his result with FRM was more typical of what fantasy owners can expect in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400. He finished 37th at Vegas after starting 36th.

Driver swaps continue in response to the loss of Kyle Busch to injury and Brian Vickers to health concerns. With the news that David Ragan will move to the No. 55 for the remainder of the season after Talladega SuperSpeedway, Brett Moffitt has been named as the driver of the No. 34 at Kansas Speedway, according to NBC NASCAR Talk’s Dustin Long.

Moffitt has been much stronger in the No. 55 than the 34, so it will pay dividends for fantasy owners to note the switch. The Front Row Motorsports teams will be at their best on driver’s tracks like the short and flat versions.

Brett Moffitt’s 17th-place finish in the Food City 500 at Bristol was his best result in the past four weeks, which is when he climbed back into the No. 55 in relief of Brian Vickers.

Michael Waltrip Racing has been experiencing some issues recently and Moffitt has not been immune. Since he is uniformly cheaper than his teammates, however, he remains a solid value in fantasy NASCAR.

If Brett Moffitt outlasts two competitors this Saturday, he will show improvement over his first Bristol attempt. Last fall, he sustained both crash damage and an engine failure in the first 78 laps of the Irwin Tools Night Race and retired in 42nd.

Moffitt has more experience this year and he is driving the No. 55 with full support from Michael Waltrip Racing. Fantasy owners can expect a finishing result somewhere in the mid- to high-20s.

Brett Moffitt scored an amazing top-10 finish at Atlanta in the second week of the season driving the No. 55 in relief of Brian Vickers. He hopes he can repeat that feat Saturday night.

Moffitt’s two most recent attempts—also in the No. 55—were a 22nd at Auto Club and a 28th at Martinsville. If he can finish in the low 20s this week, he will be a solid value.

Brett Moffitt has been at his best in the No. 55 ride this season in relief of Brian Vickers. He finished eighth at Atlanta, was 22nd at Auto Club, and 28th at Martinsville.

With more funding at Michael Waltrip Racing than Front Row Motorsports, this is not surprising, but Chris Buescher has shown the No. 34—which is the ride Moffitt has also campaigned—can challenge the bigger organization. Still Moffitt is driving to his ability.
