FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thad Moffitt to Make Daytona Debut with Performance Plus Motor Oil

Press Release For Immediate Release

Thad Moffitt to Make Daytona Debut with Performance Plus Motor Oil

Will Follow in Petty Family Foot Steps in Daytona ARCA Debut

 

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (January 28, 2019) – Daytona is a family affair for the Petty’s.

Kyle Petty made his ARCA Racing Series debut in 1979 at the Daytona International Speedway, winning the race in his first stock car start. Now, 40 years later, his nephew, Thad Moffitt, will look to do the same driving the No. 46 Performance Plus Motor Oil Chevrolet in a car prepared by Empire Racing Group (ERG).

Moffitt will make the first Daytona start in his young career with his partner Performance Plus, who has sponsored him in his previous ARCA starts.

Moffitt, the 18-year-old grandson of “The King” Richard Petty, recently participated in the ARCA Racing Series test at Daytona in his No. 46 Chevrolet. He went through the same test last year but was too young to compete in the race.

With eight ARCA starts behind him, Moffitt is ready to compete on the big tracks and race at the track his family helped make famous.

“This is Daytona, and it means so much to my family,” said Moffitt. “Testing last year just gave me that desire to race here. I know what Uncle Kyle did in his first ARCA start here – he won the race. It would be amazing to accomplish that same feat 40 years later. We had a good test session and I have more experience in the draft, too. I’m ready to go and look forward to that green flag coming down.”

Being a part of the Petty family, Moffitt has been traveling to Daytona Beach since he was born. The track and its history are nothing new, and Moffitt is not intimidated by the opportunity.

“Growing up, I went to Daytona every February and July,” Moffitt said. “I loved watching the ’43’ race and watching Uncle Kyle. It’s cool to finally have my turn. Daytona is a big part of our family history. It started with my great grandfather, Lee, and has been passed down. It feels like a rite of passage to race at Daytona. I’m ready to start our race season in February.”

Moffitt and his No. 46 Chevrolet Empire Racing team had immediate success in ARCA competition on the short tracks. He’s finished in the Top 15 in three of his eight starts, including a Top 10 finish. The team will make select starts in the ARCA Racing Series with Performance Plus throughout 2019.

“The support of Performance Plus has given me so many opportunities in my career,” said Moffitt. “It allowed me to race late models and then jump into the ARCA Racing Series. It’s perfect that they’re supporting me at Daytona. The car is going through final prep now and getting decaled. It’s always a great looking car.”

Moffitt’s No. 46 Chevrolet is not only supported by Performance Plus, but also will have continued associate sponsorship from Alsco, Apple Spice, Fence Armor, Hostetler Ranch and Transportation Impact.

A native of Trinity, N.C., Moffitt is the son of Brian and Rebecca Petty-Moffitt. He started racing a go-kart and a quarter midget before moving to a Limited Late Model and now the ARCA Racing Series. Moffitt grew up going to the track with his grandfather Richard Petty and watching his Uncle Kyle race.

 Thad Moffitt to Kick-Off 2018 Season with Familiar Partner

Performance Plus Motor Oil to Sponsor Moffitt in Late Model
and ARCA Racing Series
WELCOME, N.C. (March 16, 2018) – Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) announced today their continued partnership with Performance Plus Motor Oil. The partnership will once again see RPM development driver, Thad Moffitt, competing in NASCAR Late Model competition and the ARCA Racing Series events at Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tenn. on April 7, Pocono Raceway on June 1, and at the short track in Indianapolis on September 7. Moffitt and RPM will partner with Empire Racing Group (ERG) to enter the cars for all races.

Performance Plus will continue to sponsor Moffitt during various Late Model races throughout the southeast in 2018. Moffitt and ERG will begin their race season this Saturday night during the Performance Plus 300 weekend at the Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Speedway. Moffitt will race the No. 46 Performance Plus machine in the Late Model feature this Saturday night. Performance Plus will also be an associate sponsor of Moffitt for the remainder of the year in both ARCA and NASCAR Late Model competition.

Moffitt, the grandson of “The King” Richard Petty, will make his first start at the Pocono Raceway later this year in the ARCA Racing Series while returning to both the Fairgrounds Speedway and Indianapolis. Moffitt plans more ARCA Racing Series starts later this summer which will be announced at a later date. The No. 46 of Moffitt is supported by Performance Plus along with Transportation Impact and Hostetler Ranch.

Moffitt, the 2016 Southeast Limited Late Model Champion, raced in two ARCA Racing Series events with Performance Plus in 2017. He finished a career-best 11th in Indianapolis and is excited to have them back as he continues his racing career.

“Performance Plus Motor Oil has been an awesome partner,” said Moffitt. “Their partnership allowed me to race a few races in the ARCA Racing Series last year and really helped me race in some of the biggest Late Model races in the southeast. We’re going to do a little more this year and hopefully we can get our first win in the Late Model and a few Top-10 finishes in the ARCA car. They are great people and I want to run really well for them.”

Moffitt is a 17-year-old native from Trinity, N.C. and is the son of Brian and Rebecca Petty-Moffitt. He started racing a go-kart and a quarter midget before moving to a Limited Late Model and now the ARCA Racing Series. A high school student, Moffitt grew up going to the track with his grandfather and watching his Uncle Kyle race.
