Brett Moffitt will reunite with HomeTown Lenders in 2022.

Our motorsport driver Brett Moffitt will have a familiar partner in place for the first race of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season. He will meet with HomeTown Lenders to launch his schedule.

The NASCAR team announced the news through a press release. The Alabama-based mortgage company with operations in more than 40 states will return to the #02 Chevrolet Camaro for the beef. That’s what’s for dinner. 300 at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 19 (5 p.m. ET, FS1).

Prior to the announcement, Moffitt quietly indicated that HomeTown Lenders would be making a comeback. He wore a firefighter suit representing the company during NASCAR Production Days on January 18, 2022. This firefighter suit also featured associated partner logos for Fr8Auctions, Concrete Supply and Destiny Homes. These companies have all served as lead partners for select races in the 2021 season.

“The partnership we’ve developed with HomeTown Lenders over the past few months has been tremendous,” Moffitt said in a team statement. “To see them stepping up in 2022 to partner the #02 Our Motorsports team is amazing. Billy, John, Kerry and everyone at HomeTown have been great to work with and hopefully we can take the [No. 02] HomeTown Lenders Chevrolet at Victory Lane in Daytona.


HomeTown lenders joined Moffitt for 2 runs

The season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway won’t be the first time No. 02 has featured HomeTown Lenders graphics. The company also joined Moffitt for two races during the 2021 Xfinity Series season.

HomeTown Lenders made their 2021 debut for the trip to the Charlotte Roval on October 9. Moffitt presented a white, green and red scheme featuring the mortgage company, but an accident ended his day after 30 laps.

HomeTown Lenders returned to the #02 Chevrolet the following week for the race at Texas Motor Speedway. Moffitt started 26th overall, then worked his way to a 16th place as Truck Series rider John Hunter Nemechek won.

“We are so grateful to have HomeTown Lenders back in 2022,” Mary Our, owner of the #02 Chevrolet Camaro, said in a team statement. “We look forward to building a strong partnership with the HomeTown Lenders team this season and hope to see them at Victory Lane!”


Moffitt will have a new crew chief at Daytona

When Moffitt returns to the #02 Chevy for the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, he’ll have a new person atop the pit. He will work with Kris Bowen during the 2022 Xfinity Series season.

Bowen’s experience as a crew chief comes from his stints on the K&N East and West series. He has 92 total races on his resume, including wins with Dalton Sargeant and Chase Elliott in the West Series. He also guided Jesse Little and Ronnie Bassett Jr. to a win apiece in the East Series.

Moffitt was originally scheduled to work with Jeff Hensley during the season after having several people pit top in 2021. However, Hensley left Our Motorsports to join ThorSport Racing and three-time Truck Series champion Matt Crafton. He will now replace Junior Joiner, who retired at the end of the 2021 season, while Bowen joins Moffitt.
