Thad Moffitt has helmet fit for 'The King' in ARCA debut

The next generation of Petty pride is making his ARCA debut Saturday night as Thad Moffitt runs the No. 46 Ford at Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tennessee.

 

With a helmet that’s fit for "The King," Richard Petty’s 16-year-old grandson is out to prove himself at the Music City 200.

 

 

Empire Racing Group and Richard Petty Motorsports partnered to put Moffitt’s No. 46 Petty-blue Ford on the track this weekend.

 

"I love racing, being at the track and just learning and trying to get better each race," Moffitt said in a press release. "The ERG team has been great and I’ve had a lot of fun with them in the late model. They have a good ARCA program and I really wanted to make my debut in this series.

 

"A lot of great drivers have raced in ARCA, and Uncle Kyle and Adam have both won in this series. It makes me really want to follow in their footsteps."
