Then driving for Hattori Racing Enterprises, Moffitt gained his second of six wins on the yr en route to profitable the 2018 Gander Vans championship as John Hunter Nemechek ran out of gasoline on the final lap. That win also marks Moffitt’s lone Gander Truck visit to the monitor.

And last week the driving force of the No. 44 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet announced that, starting with Texas, he was opting to compete for Gander Vans points for the rest of the 2019 season – switching over from incomes factors within the Xfinity Series.

He has competed in every Gander Vans race this season, posting a mean finish of 6.eight and profitable the race at Kansas. Nevertheless, not one of the results previous to Texas rely in the direction of his Playoff potential as he began from “zero” with the change.

The Florida native has a large, but not insurmountable, mountain to climb so as to qualify for the Gander Vans Playoffs. Chastain must work his method into the highest 20 in factors (he at present sits 64 factors again from 20th place) and win (another) race in the ultimate seven contests of the regular season to have a shot at postseason glory.

And it’s totally attainable he will do this. Arising this weekend is a monitor where Chastain has discovered success behind the wheel of a truck. During his first four races at the monitor in 2012 and 2013, he had a mean finish of 10.5 – highlighted by a pole in the second race of 2013 and a second-place finish in that same begin.

(Last yr, suspension points ended his day early at Iowa, hurting his general common end at the monitor and dropping it to 14.four.)
