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 May 13 - 3:47 PM

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.
Apr 3 - 9:35 PM

Brett Moffitt will make his first start at Martinsville this week, but he has tasted success there in the past. He won the 2010 UNOH Performance 200 in the K&N East series.

Normally that would not be enough to excite fantasy players, but Moffitt has performed well in the No. 55 this year and he could be on track to finish in the top 20.

With Brian Vickers sidelined by blood clots this week at Auto Club Speedway, Brett Moffitt will move out of the No. 34 and back into the No. 55 for the Auto Club 400.

In his last start in the No. 55, Moffitt scored his first career top-10 at Atlanta with an eighth. That is his only lead lap finish in 10 previous starts, however, so while he must be treated as a solid dark horse he should be regarded as a potential top-20 finisher at best.

Twenty-two-year-old up-and-coming driver Brett Moffitt will pilot Front Row Motorsports' No. 34 Ford Fusion for the next three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races.

The young driver, who finished eighth in Sunday's race at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, will drive the No. 34 Shaw's Southern Belle Seafood Ford this week at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway. He will also be behind the wheel of the No. 34 at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway on March 15 and Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., on March 22.-Breaking Limits

In a substitute roll for Brian Vickers this week, Moffitt more than acquitted himself. He finished eighth in the Quik Trip 500 after starting the event 22nd.

Moffitt used a little strategy to gain track position late in the race, but he had to hold off determined charges from the likes of Brad Keselowski, Ryan Newman, and Carl Edwards. This was his first lead lap finish and he could be risky when he is in the No. 66 later in the season.

Brett Moffitt may well be in the best equipment of his career this week when he subs for the convalescing Brian Vickers at Atlanta. He will make his second career start on this track after finishing 34th last year.

While that entry was also a Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota in collaboration with Jay Robinson, it lacked the chemistry of a full time effort. Moffitt was running at the end of the race, albeit eight laps off the pace.

Brett Moffitt will run selected races in the Michael Waltrip Racing stable and could be a surprisingly good value during the season. His Cup debut netted a 22nd-place finish at Dover.

Equally impressive, Moffitt qualified 18th for that race. Dover is one of the toughest tracks on the Cup schedule and Moffitt’s success there suggests he will be good on driver’s tracks when he gets a start. Players can leave him in the garage on high-horsepower unrestricted, intermediate speedways where the overall performance of the high-dollar teams impacts part time efforts to a greater degree.

Michael Waltrip Racing announced today Brett Moffitt will drive the No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 1.

The 22-year-old Grimes, Iowa native replaces Brian Vickers whose return from December heart surgery begins the following weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Moffitt has worked with MWR and Toyota Racing Development for the past few years as a test and development driver. He is a nine-time winner in K&N Pro Series East competition and raced in eight NASCAR Sprint Cup races driving the No. 66 for Jay Robinson Racing/MWR in 2014.-Michael Waltrip Racing

Brett Moffitt will make his sixth Cup start this week in the No. 66. His most recent attempt came on another similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in Charlotte where he finished 40th.

Fantasy owners have been waiting for him to replicate his debut. His first attempt in the series was at Dover in June and he finished 22nd after qualifying eighth. His best result since then has been a pair of 34ths on the unrestricted, intermediate speedways of Atlanta and Michigan, which has made him of limited use.
