In preparation for all the changes, the team tested in Indy at the track they will return to on Friday for the one-day show.
“It was an important test to give us a base of where we are with the new equipment,” continued Moffitt. “It was great to be back at the track, in a Chevrolet, and learning as much as possible. We want to run well again at Indy, especially for Performance Plus Motor Oil. They have done so much for my career, and I want to run well for them and all my partners.”
The No. 46 Chevrolet will run with primary sponsor Performance Plus Motor Oil on the hood and sides and also with associate sponsors Transportation Impact and Hostetler Ranch.
Moffitt, the 2016 Southeast Limited Late Model Champion from Trinity, North Carolina, is the son of Brian and Rebecca Petty-Moffitt. He started racing a go-kart and a quarter midget before moving to a Limited Late Model and now a Late Model. He competes part-time on the ARCA Racing Series. A high school student, Moffitt grew up going to the track with his grandfather, “The King” Richard Petty, and also watching his uncle, Kyle Petty, race.
Friday’s schedule includes practice, qualifying and the race. The Shore Lunch 200 is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET and will be televised live nationally on MAV TV.
