Following previous success together in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Brett Moffitt and crew chief Scott Zipadelli have been reunited together, hopeful of chasing a championship with Hattori Racing Enterprises.

“This is an awesome opportunity for me to reunite with Shige Hattori and get back into a position to win races,” Moffitt said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with so many familiar faces. I believe the people in place at HRE are the right group for us to find a lot of success.

“Working with Zippy (Scott Zipadelli) again makes this opportunity even better. We had a great stretch together a couple years ago, especially winning at Michigan. Hopefully we can do that again, because Zippy, Shige, and everyone at HRE have built an impressive program over the last two years.”

The pair worked together in 2016, scoring three top-fives in six races, including Moffitt’s lone truck series victory at Michigan International Speedway. In total, the Iowa native has picked up six top-10’s in 13 career truck events. 

“I am so glad to have Brett back with us at HRE,” Shigeaki Hattori said. “We enjoyed working together several years ago and he has made the most of every opportunity he’s had in this sport over the last few years, especially in the NCWTS. He’s proven he can win races and is deserving of the opportunity.

“It’s great to have AISIN Group’s continued support of our team and to have them reunited with Brett. We’re very proud of the program we have built with Scott (Zipadelli) and the entire team, and we’re looking forward to having Brett behind the wheel and elevating our performance even further this season.”
