Thad Moffitt Makes His KY Debut

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

Thad Moffitt will make his first start at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta on Saturday in the ARCA Menards Series. He is eager to get back on track coming off one of his best finishes last weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway outside of Indianapolis. Moffitt was fifth, which tied his best-career ARCA finish. He also finished fifth at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in the season opener in February.
Moffitt scored top-10 finishes in his two intermediate-track races last year. He was 10th at Charlotte (N.C) Motor Speedway and ninth at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet. He hopes to improve on these finishes Saturday at Kentucky.

Moffitt will be driving the same No. 46 Richard Petty Performance Plus Oil Ford Fusion that the DGR-Crosley team took to Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in June. Unfortunately, Moffitt only raced it for about two laps before the engine blew following a missed shift at the start of the race.

Moffitt on Kentucky: “I think every mile-and-a-half is pretty unique. They all race kind of different, but I’ve been told it’s comparable to Chicago. I ran pretty well there last year. I think coming off of our top five at Lucas Oil we made positive changes all day, so I think if we just keep going in the right direction we’ll end up with another positive run here at Kentucky.”
