Brett Moffitt to Make NASCAR Nationwide Series Debut with RAB Racing at Iowa Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. (July 30, 2012) - RAB Racing with Brack Maggard will partner with current NASCAR K&N Pro Series East points leader Brett Moffitt when he makes his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut this weekend at Iowa Speedway.

The Grimes, Iowa native is currently in his fourth full season of NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competition. He has compiled nine wins, 27 top-five and 32 top-10 finishes in 42 series starts, and holds a 22-point advantage in the driver standings with nine of 14 events completed on the 2012 schedule.

"Brett has done a fantastic job in the K&N Series, so we're looking forward to having him behind the wheel of our Toyota Camry this weekend at Iowa Speedway," said Robby Benton, owner of RAB Racing with Brack Maggard. "He's been a part of Michael Waltrip Racing's driver development program, and through our relationship with them, this opportunity to help him move up the ladder came about."

"I am very excited to make my Nationwide Series debut in the No. 99 RAB Racing Toyota Camry this weekend at Iowa Speedway," said Moffitt. "Not only is it my first Nationwide race, but it will be at my home track. I love Iowa Speedway and it will be nice to have my fans and family out at the track supporting me. I hope to put on a good show for all of them this weekend.

"It's going to be a busy weekend with running both the K&N Series race Friday night, and the Nationwide Series race the following day. Though it will be in a different car with different competitors, hopefully I can draw on some of my past experience to overcome the learning curve and keep the No. 99 Toyota up front."
