Back in March, Brett Moffitt fractured both his legs in a horrific Motocross accident. Luckily he was able to recover and was in ‘good spirits’, according to the team.
As it turned out, his injuries were so severe that he needed surgery to fix it. Owing to that, doctors gave him an estimated recovery time of at least six to eight weeks.
He recently spoke to FOX Sports about the aftermath of the accident and opened up about his takeaways.
FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass asked the driver whether he ever sat back on a bike after the accident. Moffitt said, “No, those got put up for sale real quick.
“Wasn’t necessarily my opinion or my option, but I’m good with it. When you’re a kid, you ride all the time and you feel invincible. Apparently I’m getting old now, because I’m far from invincible. So we got rid of all the bikes, that’s for sure.”
Luckily, he did not really miss much, because the COVID-19 pandemic struck and forced everything to a standstill. Naturally, this gave Brett Moffitt plenty of time to recover from the crash and let his legs heal up nice and easy.
Ever since the season resumed, Moffitt became a man on a mission. That injury was clearly not bothering him at all, as he now lies 5th in the Truck Series championship. In the last race, Moffitt had a good day in the office as he finished in 4th place behind Grant Enfinger, Matt Crafton, and Ben Rhodes.
At the next race at the Bristol Motor Speedway, Brett Moffitt will surely try every trick in the book to win. At the same time, he will also be eager to stay alive in the Playoffs battle for as long as possible.
