Two months after breaking both his legs, Truck Series driver Brett Moffitt has been cleared by his doctor and NASCAR to compete.
Moffitt announced that he had been cleared on Twitter and it was confirmed by NASCAR.
The GMS Racing driver and 2018 Truck Series champion broke his legs in a March 14 dirt bike accident at a friend’s house in North Carolina, a situation that occurred as a result of that day’s Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Truck Series is scheduled to hold its next race on May 26 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Moffitt will not have missed any races during his recovery.
“This quarantine is a blessing for the recovery time, but it would never have happened had we been at the race track,” Moffitt told NBC Sports last month. Moffitt accurately predicted then that “100% I’ll be ready before we get back to racing.”
Talk about a damn good Monday! It’s race week!! Andddd oh yea… I’ve been officially cleared by the Dr. and @NASCAR to return to racing. LETTTTSSSGOOOO 💪💪🏁🏆🍻🏁🏆🍻
