Thad Moffitt joins Young’s for Knoxville Trucks
Thad Moffitit’s #20 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado RST will be dirty after Saturday NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race to Knoxville Racecoursethat’s probably why Clean ports and Security-Kleen are the perfect sponsors for the race.
“Young’s Motorsports has been a major customer of ours through our Safety-Kleen business for thirteen years, so we are delighted to be represented on the hood of their truck, especially for such an important race,” commented Clean Harbors Marketing Director Boyfriend Judy. “We’re even more excited to see how dirty and up front Clean Harbors #20 looks. It’s a legendary track, so it’s only fitting to have a member of the legendary Petty family behind the wheel.
The grandson of the legendary Richard SmallMoffitt is looking to break into the Truck Series in 2022 after spending the last five years competing in the ARCA Ménards series, including much of the 2021 season en route to a fourth-place finish in points. He made his first truck starts in the first three events of 2022 for Race of the Reaume brothers in alliance with Supermarket racesfinishing eighteenth at Daytona followed by twenty-ninth and thirty-second at Las Vegas and Atlanta, respectively.
“Young’s Motorsports is delighted to welcome Thad Moffitt to our driver line-up,” says team owner Tyler Young. “Our team is very proud to wear the colors of the race sponsor and we look forward to the opportunity to offer Thad and Clean Harbors the chance to earn their career-best result in the Truck Series on Saturday night in Knoxville. .”
Although the ARCA Menards Series visits two dirt tracks each year (the Illinois and DuQuoin State Fairgrounds), Moffitt has never raced at either track. After racing the first fourteen races of 2021, he surrendered his #46 David Gilliland Racing entry to Taylor Gray for the two dirt events due to a lack of sponsorship.
He returned to ARCA in Talladega in April, where he finished fourth.
“I’m super excited to team up with Tyler and Young’s Motorsports for the Clean Harbors 150,” Moffitt said. “Clean Harbors has been a long-time partner of mine and I would like to give them the exposure they deserve.
“I think with Tyler and the #20 Clean Harbors team, I have that opportunity. I’m ready for the challenges of the land.
Young’s Motorsports lines up #02 and #12 for Jesse Small/Kaz Grala and Spencer Boydrespectively, while #20 was filled by multiple pilots like Danny Bohn, Sheldon’s CreedAustin Dillon, Matt Mills, Dillon Steuerand Garrett Smithley. Austin Dillon, a Cup Series regular, drove the No. 20 in the first dirt race of the season at Bristol to a fourteenth-place finish. After twelve races, the n°20 is thirty-third in owner points.
