Thad Moffitt, No. 46 Richard Petty Performance Plus Motor Oil Ford Fusion

Thad Moffitt is ready to get back on track coming off another top-10 finish last weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. The 19-year-old grandson of NASCAR champion, Richard Petty, is always happy to be at the race track, especially when he knows he is competitive. Moffitt has finished in the top-10 in two of his three ARCA starts this season, including his best-career finish of fifth at Daytona in the season-opening race.

Moffitt has the most experience of the three DGR-Crosley drivers at Pocono. He has two starts at “The Tricky Triangle” with his best finish of 11th coming in last year’s race. In 2018, an accident took him out of contention on lap 29 of 80.

The team is taking a new No. 46 Richard Petty Performance Plus Oil Ford, at least new to them. This car raced last year, but was rebuilt with a Ford Fusion body in the off-season.

Moffitt on Pocono: “Pocono is very unique and challenging. I’ve kind of struggled there in the past, but I think I have a better shot this year. I’m in better equipment and I’ve got a better starting spot already based on 2020 points, so I’m pretty confident going into this. DGR-Crosley is bringing fast cars to the track right now and all of our Fusions have been fast so far this year. I think we’ll just keep it up going into Pocono and I believe that we have a good shot at running top three and possibly winning the race this weekend.”
