Howard Moore Makes History on Saturday Night

Memphis, Tennessee (06/05/17)
– Howard Moore enjoyed a great night of racing on Saturday evening at St. Francois County Raceway (Farmington, Missouri). By the time that the final checkered flag of the night had dropped, the 20-year-old from Memphis had made history.

Not only did the pilot of the Lawn Jox #40 Maxim Chassis Sprint Car get his first win of 2017, but he also scored his first-career 410 c.i. Sprint Car feature win.

Even better, he simultaneously accomplished both feats in thrilling fashion.

Despite a late-afternoon rain shower, the program moved forward at the clay oval as a solid field of 26 entries set their sights on topping the night's feature event.

After winning his heat race from the 3rd-starting position, Howard advanced from 5th to 3rd in the dash, which locked him into the 3rd-starting spot for the feature.

During the race's first half, Howard battled for the 2nd position before ultimately taking control of the spot as he began to focus on erasing the straightaway lead held by Joey Montgomery.

As the duo worked through lapped traffic, Howard began catching Montgomery. Exiting the final corner on the final lap Moore made a daring move to claim the win by a matter of inches.

"It was an incredibly close finish, and I feel for Joey [Montgomery] because I know how bad it stings to come that close to winning," Howard said. "So many people helped make this win possible, and I can't thank them all enough for their support. Having my family in Victory Lane meant so much, and hopefully this is the first of many wins to come."

Full results from the events from the event are available at .

Howard’s plans for the upcoming weekend are still up in the air as he is still waiting to get his 360 c.i. engine back from the builder. If it’s not ready in time for the weekend, Moore may resume action with his 410 c.i. Keep your browser pointed to to stay abreast of the latest team plans.

The World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series victory was worth $10,000.

“We were just biding our time waiting for the checkered flag to come out,” said Clanton. “Our car has been working real good the past month and that just shows what hard work that Penske and Ronny Crooks, Aaron and Nick and all of them guys have done to get me back on top here. Thanks to them and all of my great sponsors for their support.”

Shane Clanton picked back up with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series on Friday night at Tazewell Speedway (Tazewell, Tennessee) with the Ray Varner 50.

Starting the night by setting fast time in qualifications, Clanton backed up his strong start by winning his heat race.

He would race in the Top 5 throughout the finale before streaking under the checkered flag in the 4th position behind Brandon Sheppard, Tyler Erb, and Eric Wells.

Despite not getting the win, Clanton was all smiles after the feature was completed as he thought about his late father.

“It’s hard to be up here and him not being with me and he has been gone for a couple of years now,” said Clanton. “As long as we can live his life like we’re doing and just honor him as much as we can. He’s done a lot for the racing in the south east. It’s an honor to be here tonight.”
