Larry Shaw Race Cars Purchased By the Mosley Family
Legendary Company Renamed as Shaw Race Cars

Batesville, Arkansas (07/23/19) – Scott and Marlene Mosley, in partnership with Jeff Taylor, took over the ownership and operation of Larry Shaw Racing on July 1, 2019. With their acquisition they renamed the company, Shaw Race Cars.

“We’ve met many great people throughout the last ten years of racing,” Scott Mosley noted. “When this incredible opportunity came along, allowing us to be more involved in the racing community, we couldn’t pass it up. We’re now just a few weeks into owning the company, but we are already loving every minute of it. Larry [Shaw] built an amazing repertoire of great racers and working hand-in-hand with them to help them reach their goals is a great feeling.”

In addition to their involvement in racing, the Mosley family also have various business endeavors within their home state of Arkansas. The opportunity to invest in the racing community was a dream come true.

“We’ve made a lot of great memories with our son [Travis], our family, and friends at the racetrack over the last decade,” Scott Mosley continued. “What Larry Shaw and his staff have built with their company over the past 40 plus years is extraordinary. To carry on the storied tradition of this legendary company is truly an honor.”

The existing staff at Larry Shaw Race Cars, including Larry’s son Kevin Shaw, have retained their existing roles as the company continues its transition to Shaw Race Cars.

“Larry [Shaw] has put together a topnotch staff, and we are excited to continue building on what he has in place,” Scott Mosley said. “Adding the expertise of Jeff [Taylor] only adds to what is already an exceptional staff. Jeff is now leading our development program, while also providing tech support both at and away from the track.”

Scott’s wife, Marlene, went on to elaborate on Taylor’s role in the new endeavor.

“Jeff Taylor is an important part of this transition,” she shared. “His innovation, knowledge, and skills are vital in achieving our goal to offer the same quality service and cars Larry Shaw Racing is known for.”

For Taylor, he’s relishing in his new position.

“Scott and Marlene [Mosley] are some of the finest folks you’ll ever meet, and I think the world of them,” Taylor stated. “We’ve got some big things in plan that I think will allow our customers to be even more successful. I can’t wait to see what the future will hold.”

Over the past 40 years, Larry Shaw Race Cars has built over 5,000 racecars, including both Modifieds and Late Models. Shaw Race Cars will continue to provide tech support and part’s services for all chassis, including past, present and future.

For Larry Shaw, he knows that he will miss being in the office each day, but on the same token he’s excited to see what the future will hold under the direction of the Mosley family.

“I couldn’t imagine a finer group of folks than the Mosley family to carry on the tradition of Larry Shaw Race Cars,” Shaw said. “Selling this company is not something I was sure I’d ever do, but always said if the right people came along that I’d definitely consider it. Well, the Mosley family is indeed the right folks to carry on what my family and I have built over the past four decades.

“I just want to say thanks to everyone, who has ever supported this company. I look forward to seeing what Shaw customers continue to accomplish for many years to come.”

A new website for Shaw Race Cars has been launched at

Brandon Hightower Conquers Chatham Super Late Model Action
Louisiana Late Model Action at Chatham Up Next

Natchitoches, Louisiana (07/23/19) –
Mechanical issues and even significant, late-race damage couldn’t keep Brandon Hightower from racing to his first Winged Modified win of the 2019 season on Saturday night.

The Louisiana racer drove his Advanced Specialized Carriers LLC No. B52 FV Recycling/ Cane River Brewing Winged Modified to the feature win at Chatham Speedway. It was his second overall victory of 2019.

“Honestly, I can’t believe we were able to get the win. We battled a magneto problem all night, which left me with no drive off the corner. Then at one point we got hit by the second-place car, which bent the front radius rods, panhard bar and ruined the wing,” Hightower revealed. “Even with all of that damage somehow we were able to drive away from the field to get the win. God sure gave me a blessing to pick up another win in the same car that I won my first race with years ago.

“I want to say a very special thanks to my dad. This car is his puppy, and it means the world to me to get to drive it.”

Saturday night found Brandon Hightower in action Chatham Speedway (Chatham, Louisiana), where he returned to the driver’s seat of his FV Recycling No. B52 Winged Modified entry. Gaining one spot in his heat race, Hightower scored a runner-up finish, which locked him into the fourth-starting spot for the A-Main.

Battling magneto issues, Brandon still found a way to take control of the lead near the halfway point and withstood damage late to capture his second win of the season. Brother Fowlkes, Caleb Dillard, Levi Small, and Terry Driggers followed him across the finish line.

The team will be idle this weekend before returning to action on Saturday, August 3 at Chatham Speedway in a $2,000-to-win, Louisiana Late Model Dirt Series event.

Brandon Hightower would like to thank all of his sponsors including Cane River Trucking, Timmons Truck Center, APE Engines, Rocket Chassis, American Detailer Garage, PRO FABrication Inc., Fabulous Floors, Swamp Daddy’s Crawfish, Henry’s Auto Parts, Butlerbuilt Motorsports Equipment, Day Motorsports, Allgayer Inc, FV Recycling, Stacy Lisle, Jim Hitz, NAPA Auto Parts (Alexandria), K2 Sauce, Legacy Construction, Advanced Specialized Carriers LLC, J&J Motorsports, Hooker Harness, Superior Graphix, Cold Hard Art, Max Papis Innovations and Website & PR Services.

Austin Horton Wires Southern Nationals Field at Rome
ULTIMATE Super Late Models at Dixie Speedway Up Next

Newnan, Georgia (07/23/19) – Austin Horton wired the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Super Late Model field on Sunday night at Rome Speedway in his Vape’s Gone Wild No. 16 Wood Motorsports/ Orr’s Towing/ Super K Express/ XR1 Rocket Chassis by Clint Smith/ Clements Race Engine Super Late Model.

“I couldn’t ask for a better race car, this XR1 Rocket,” Horton said in Victory Lane. “It was just fun to drive. I could put it wherever I wanted. I was finally glad to outrun Michael [Page]. He didn’t have no flat tires or none of that stuff. I had a lot of heat behind me. To outrun ‘em all is a chore because most of ‘em get to do this for a living, and I gotta go to work in the morning.”

With Mother Nature washing out Friday’s event at Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Georgia), Austin Horton entered the Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals on Sunday at Rome Speedway (Rome, Georgia).

In a field of 23 entries, Horton laid down the fastest time in his group, which positioned him on the pole for the A-Main. Jumping into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Austin survived a mid-race challenge from Michael Page to secure his fifth win of the season. Page, Jason Croft, Brandon Overton, and Donald McIntosh completed the Top-5 finishers. He was awarded a $5,300 payday for his winning performance.

“My crew guys, Ashton and Blake, they did a good job telling me where to be on the racetrack and what time I needed to be there. I think what slowed me down was getting by some of them lapped cars,” Horton commented. “They were a little treacherous. Once I got by them, they spread the [signaling] sticks. It makes you feel good when they can spread the sticks.

“I want to thank all of my sponsors for their great support. I also want to thank Allstar Graphix for always keeping my cars looking awesome.”

Austin will thunder into Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Georgia) this Saturday for the $4,000-to-win, Back to School Night. The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series will sanction the event.

The Texas racer piloted his Wichita Tank Racing No. 20 Kenny’s Tile/ ARMI Contractors/ MB Customs/ Hatfield Racing Engine Modified to the $8,000 victory in the ninth annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals.

“Something about I-80 Speedway has always fit my driving style, and I always love going there,” Sanders said. “Drawing the pole position for the finale was a big deal on Saturday night because it allowed me to start in clean air and pick the best line. We were on cruise control until the caution flew with three laps to go. I knew as long as I didn’t spin my tires on the restart that we had the car to win.

“Everything worked out perfectly and we got the win. This week we’re putting a new car together and will hopefully have it ready for Deer Creek and Mississippi Thunder Speedway this weekend.”

Friday night found Rodney Sanders in action at I-80 Speedway (Greenwood, Nebraska) for the opening round of the ninth annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals.

In the second 15-lap segment, Rodney captured his seventh win of the season over Jason Hughes, Dereck Ramirez, Terry Phillips, and Hunter Marriott. He bagged a $1,000 payday for his efforts.

Returning on Saturday with the pole position already locked into the finale, Sanders led flag-to-flag en route to his eighth win of the season and an $8,000 prize. Jason Hughes, Ryan Gustin, Jake Timm, and Zack VanderBeek rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

The weekend triumphs increased his winning percentage at the 4/10-mile oval. He’s now won 10 of the last 12 races there.

Logan Roberson Turns Rough and Tumble Saturday into a Success
Team Set to Return to Winchester Speedway this Saturday

Waynesboro, Virginia (07/23/19) – It’s no big secret that racing can be a dangerous sport. However, sometimes getting to the track can actually be the most dangerous part. Just a few hours after seeing his team’s hauler careening off the road en route to the race track, Logan Roberson raced his Wynbridge Inc. No. 17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Crate Late Model to the feature win at Virginia’s Winchester Speedway.

The victory marked his ninth of the 2019 season.

On Saturday night Logan Roberson and his team made the trek to Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia), where they were scheduled to enter a pair of features for the Chuck Brannon Memorial.

However, as the team traveled toward the clay oval, disaster struck. A car slammed on its breaks in front of the team transporter, forcing the hauler off the road and into the median. Thankfully the hauler didn’t flip, but it sustained considerable damage. Luckily, the team was able to limp the hauler to the track to compete in the night’s program.

The night started with Roberson rolling off second on the starting grid for the rescheduled Chuck Brannon Memorial. He jumped into the lead on the opening lap and dominated the entire distance to register his ninth win of the season with Al Shawver, Jakob Piper, Steven Lowery, and Levi Crowl following him across the line. He pocketed a $1,337 payday for his efforts.

Unfortunately, the second feature was eventually postponed to another date after the night’s action was stopped by a rapidly approaching curfew.

“It was a nightmare situation on the road that afternoon. Honestly though, we are very lucky that it wasn’t more devastating than it was,” Roberson noted. “Our hauler is out of commission indefinitely from the damage. However, for the time being I’m very thankful for Glen Elliott and RBS Auto Sales for providing us with a truck so that we can keep racing.

“Despite the day starting so bad we had a great car at Winchester and won the first feature. I’m confident we had a good shot at winning the second feature, but curfew got us, so we’ll just have to try again this Saturday.”

Logan Roberson will be back in action with the RUSH Weekly Late Model Series this Saturday at Winchester Speedway. Double features will be held as last week’s make-up, main event is on the docket as well.

The win marked his sixth of the season.
