As the upstart Faction46 team embarks upon its 13th start of the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season, it will do so with a new driver behind the wheel as Dawson Cram will pilot the Chevrolet Silverado in this weekend’s Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville Superspeedway.

Cram, a Rookie of the Year contender in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports, will take over for Thad Moffitt, the grandson of the legendary Richard Petty. Moffitt, 23, had a best finish of 18th this season, which came at Darlington Raceway last month.

At this time, attempts by TobyChristie.com to obtain comment from Faction46 team representatives have gone unanswered. If an answer is received, this story will be updated.

Moffitt issued a statement on his social media channels on Friday, in which he said not racing Nashville Superspeedway is, “Due to circumstances out of my control.”

Here is the complete statement from Moffitt, which makes it sound like he will be running the upcoming event at Pocono Raceway:

“Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of my control, I will not be racing this weekend at Nashville. It’s frustrating and disappointing for me, our sponsors, and I’m sure for all our fans who have helped support me this season.

“But, as we work towards our next steps, I’m 100% confident that Ill be back on the track very soon. Look forward to seeing you at Pocono.

“This is just a part of the journey and I know that I’ll be back even better. Thanks to all our fans and partners behind us. We’ll see everyone very soon”

The No. 46 team had suffered from an average finish of 28.2 through the opening 12 races of the season, and as a result, the team found itself 33rd in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Owner Standings after World Wide Technology Raceway.

The team’s positioning in the owner standings puts the No. 46 truck in a precarious position on trying to make the field for Friday night’s Rackley Roofing 200 as there are 39 trucks on the entry list, which means three trucks will be going home following qualifying.

Moffitt, who entered the season with high hopes in the No. 46 entry, was mired back in 30th in the driver standings heading into this weekend.
