What’s Happening?

One driver who has been radio silent on his plans for 2024 is Brett Moffitt. His full-time seat at AM Racing has gone to Hailie Deegan, and absolutely nothing has been said from his camp about 2024 plans. What is left for Brett Moffitt?

  • Brett Moffitt spent 2023 with AM Racing. He had 1 top-5 and 9 top-10s, finishing 15th in the standings. His best finish was 4th at a rain-shortened Chicago Street Race.
  • Moffitt has had success in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in particular. He won the 2018 series Championship, and he won at Talladega for Front Row Motorsports in the series. He has 13 career wins in the series.
  • Fans are curious about where Moffitt can end up in 2024. It seems more likely now that he may be left out in 2024.

Part-Time or Full-Time?

The harsh reality for Brett Moffitt is that there are not many full-time opportunities left across all three series. Here is a look at all three series and their open seats.

Cup Series

All full-time Cup Series seats are accounted for, so Cup is not a full-time option for Moffitt. With Cody Ware and Kaz Grala going to Rick Ware Racing, that part-time seat is not an option either. However, Kaulig is an interesting one.

Kaulig only has A.J. Allmendinger announced for their Cup Series races. Moffitt could fill in for a few races with the team. If he can or wants to go Cup racing, this is his only option.

Xfinity Series

The Xfinity Series has a few more open seats, but, those seats seem to primarily be All-Star cars. MBM Motorsports, Mike Harmon Racing, Emerling-Gase, and the JD Motorsports #6. are all seats that were All-Star Cars one year ago. Kaulig announced last week that the 10 car will return, so, that’s an option for Moffitt as well.

The cars that could be full-time are rapidly being accounted for. Sources have told us that J.J. Yeley is working on a deal with SS Greenlight, so, that team is potentially out the window too. Sam Hunt Racing is without a full-time driver, but, rumor has it that they could be leaning towards the “All-Star Car” model for 2024. B.J. McLeod Motorsports may have an open spot, but, is McLeod going to want to race more in the series without a Cup Series charter?

Truck Series

What about the Truck Series? Young’s Motorsports and Reaume Brothers have open seats, but both of those were “All-Star Trucks”, even though Spencer Boyd started the overwhelming majority of races for Young’s in 2023. Niece has an All-Star Truck open too, and that truck won a pole at COTA with Ross Chastain.

The only full-time seat potentially available is at Hattori Racing Enterprises. Moffitt won a Championship with the team in 2018, but, Hattori has been radio silent this offseason.

Sponsorship

The biggest question mark with Moffitt’s 2024 season is sponsorship. Any of these open rides mentioned mean absolutely nothing if Moffitt cannot bring sponsorship, and sponsorship has been an issue for him in the past.

He was released from Hattori Racing Enterprises after winning the Championship in 2018 because of funding issues. In 2023, Moffitt had AM Technical Solutions, the namesake for AM Racing, on the car for 30 out of 36 races.

Sponsorship issues have been a part of Moffitt for years now. It’s reasonable to question whether or not he can gain the funding needed for a full-time seat. Even if it is part-time, he only had a non-AM Racing sponsor for 6 races in 2023.

The Most Likely Scenario

Based on all of this, part-time seems like the most likely scenario for Brett Moffitt in 2024. Seats are rapidly being taken up, and it’s getting very late in the offseason to put a full-season deal together.

Given his success in the Truck Series, if he can find an opportunity in the Truck Series, that may be an interesting option for him. He did so in 2023, and he won a race at Talladega.

If he goes to the Xfinity Series, it’s going to be with a team that is at best, equal to AM Racing. He’s not likely to make a jump up in terms of performance.

Where do you hope to see Moffitt in 2024? Will he find a ride for 2024?
