After a break of over three months, due partly because of the COVID-19 pandemic and partly because of several scheduled weekends off early in the season, the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series returns to action Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway for only its third race of the season. Brett Moffitt, the 2018 Truck Series champion, will be among the 40 drivers to take the green flag.

Moffitt suffered fractures in both legs in a motorcycle accident in March and was expected to miss several races. But the first race after Moffitt’s accident was to be a March 14 race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The coronavirus pandemic, though, resulted in NASCAR halting its 2020 scheduled on March 13. Because of the extended break, Moffitt managed to not miss a race.

Although declared for the Truck Series, Moffitt also has contested the entire NASCAR Xfinity Series 2020 schedule, to date, including two races since that series has returned to racing.

Moffitt has a best finish of 13th in the first two Truck Series races of 2020, coming in the season-opening race at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. He finished 16th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
