Truck series team signs a former cup series rookie of the year Brian Lawdermilk / Stringer

Brett Moffitt has a ride in the Camping World Truck Series after being signed to replace Ryan Truex for Hattori Racing, according to NBCSports.

Moffitt said in a team release:

“This is an awesome opportunity for me to reunite with Shige Hattori and get back into a position to win races. I?m excited about the opportunity to work with so many familiar faces. I believe the people in place at HRE are the right group for us to find a lot of success.”

Moffit will work with crew chief Scott Zipadelli, who he worked with in 2016 during his time with Red Horse Racing.

?Working with (Zipadelli) again makes this opportunity even better. We had a great stretch together a couple years ago, especially winning at Michigan. Hopefully we can do that again, because Zippy, Shige, and everyone at HRE have built an impressive program over the last two years.?

Moffitt was the rookie of the year in the cup series in 2015.
