Brett Moffitt Recovering After Surgery Due to Motocross Accident

Brett Moffitt is recovering from surgery after an accident on a motocross bike Saturday, according to a statement released by GMS Racing Monday, March 16.

Moffitt reportedly suffered fractures in both of his legs, but was “in very good spirits” and is expected to fully recover.

The rehabilitation is expected to take six to eight weeks, though it’s unclear what that will mean for Moffitt’s return to the series should NASCAR resume competition during that time.

The 2018 Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series champion has 11 wins to his name in the division and has driven in both Truck and Xfinity series races this year. He currently pilots GMS’ No. 23 Chevrolet Silverado in the former series.

Prior to the suspension of the 2020 NASCAR season due to the outbreak of COVID-19, a type of coronavirus, Moffitt scored Truck finishes of 13th and 16th at Daytona International Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway, respectively.

Competing in Our Motorsports’ No. 02 in the first four Xfinity races, Moffitt added three top-20 finishes, with a best of 14th at Las Vegas.

“GMS Racing wishes Moffitt a full and speedy recovery and looks forward to his return,” the statement concluded.
