Tifft underwent surgery for removal of a benign glioma in the brain, after the tumor was found during treatment and evaluation for a recent disc condition in his back. Tifft is expected to undergo rehabilitation soon and once cleared by physicians is expected to return to racing. The rookie is anxious to return to the race track as soon as possible.
"Obviously, we're thinking of Matt and can't wait for him to return, so we're sending him our best wishes and we hope to see him back at the track soon," said Moffitt. "I hate that it's under these circumstances, but I'm really grateful for this opportunity with Red Horse Racing and I hope it can lead to more."
Moffitt, the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year, has 38 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts, one XFINITY Series start and two Camping World Truck Series starts.
