A rare fourth-generation driver, Thad Moffitt is the latest racer to be part of the rich legacy of the Petty family. Grandson of NASCAR’s all-time winningest driver, “The King,” Richard Petty, Moffitt made his ARCA Menards Series debut in 2017 and has been a familiar semi-regular fixture in the garage ever since. Carrying on a family tradition by running No. 46, the next in line after the No. 45 run by his late cousin Adam Petty, 2020 was Moffitt’s most successful season to date.
