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. Apr 24 - 12:38 PM

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.

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.

Matt Crafton, David Stremme, and Brett Moffitt are the three drivers who failed to qualify for the Crown Royal 400.

Fantasy owners need to make certain that these drivers are not on their roster. Moffitt was considered to be a dark horse contender to finish in the top 30, so he showed some fantasy relevance before his DNQ (Did Not Qualify).

Brett Moffitt will get his third start of the season in the Michael Waltrip Racing No. 66 this week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Crown Royal 400.

It is beginning to look as if the organization is shopping him around to sponsors and a high profile race like the one at Indy is a great place to get exposure. This will force Moffitt to race conservatively in order to stay out of trouble, but he could gain some positions late in the event if attrition is high. He will be cheap in salary cap games, which could make him a great value.

Brett Moffitt will make his third Cup attempt this week at Indy in the No. 66 Michael Waltrip Racing entry. His lack of experience makes him hard to predict, but he should be watched closely.

It certainly appears as if this test driver for the organization is being groomed for a 2015 ride and the best way to get him exposure among sponsors is to enter him in marquee events. He needs to race conservatively and make the most of his opportunity, which could be worth a few positions to fantasy owners if attrition is heavy. Use him only if he fits a specific niche on one’s roster, however.
