Moffitt was in an accident over the weekend; Driver is expected to make a full recovery
Last Saturday, Atlanta Motor Speedway was set to host the NASCAR Truck Series. The race was set to break new grounds, hosting the event without fans due to the Coronavirus.
On Friday, NASCAR officials pulled the plug on the weekend. Both last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway and this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway have been postponed.
During the postponement, drivers look to stay active. They could be called back to work at any point.
Last Saturday, the day the truck were scheduled to race, Moffitt found himself on a different machine. He piloted a motorcross bike and rode out the NASCAR postponement.
However, Moffitt was injured in a crash on the bike. Unfortunately, he’s fractured both of his legs.
