Brett Moffitt will drive a second entry for Red Horse Racing in the first two races of the Camping World Truck Series this season.

Moffitt, the 2015 Cup Series Rookie of the Year, will drive the No. 7 truck for the team at Daytona International Speedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway. Timothy Peters returns to the No. 17 truck.

The 24-year-old driver competed in six races last year for Red Horse Racing in the place of Matt Tifft. The Iowa-native earned his first national NASCAR win in August at Michigan International Speedway when he passed Peters coming to the checkered flag.

The No. 7 team will be led by crew chief Butch Hylton, who has eight wins in both the Xfinity and Truck Series.

The Truck season begins on Feb. 24 with the Next Era Energy Resources 250 at Daytona.
