Howard Moore Banks Cody Burks Memorial Win at Riverside
Tennessee Racer Records Fourth Win of 2020 Campaign

Memphis, Tennessee (08/03/20) – Howard Moore is now two-for-two in 305 c.i. Sprint Car competition this season. His latest conquest in the division came on Saturday night at the famed Riverside International Speedway during the annual Cody Burks Memorial.

The Tennessee racer piloted the Rains Motorsports / CP Carrillo No. 3 High Performance Lubricants / River City Hydraulics Sprint Car to the victory in the 38-lap feature.

“It means a lot to me and our whole team to win a race that pays tribute to the memory of one of our racing brothers. There was a lot of talent in the field on Saturday night, and I just had to bide my time in the second spot. I took the lead on a few occasions, but every time we did the caution flew, pushing us back. We finally got to the lead on lap 22 and never looked back,” Moore shared. “It was truly awesome to see all of the companies that stepped up to sponsor and support this special event in different ways.”

Twenty-six competitors entered the event at the ¼-mile oval, and Howard won his heat race to lock into the third-starting spot for the 38-lap finale.

As the feature went green Moore immediately worked his way into the second spot and would stalk the leader throughout the first half of the caution-plagued finale. After having his attempts to take the top spot thwarted multiple times by cautions, Moore finally jumped to the top spot on lap 22 and sailed to his second 305 c.i. Winged Sprint Car win of the 2020 season and his fourth victory overall.

Dale Howard, Eddie Gallagher, Dewayne White and Tucker Boulton completed the Top-5 finishers.

Brian Shirley Dominates Summer Nationals at LaSalle
Prepares for World of Outlaws in Wisconsin this Week

CHILTON, Wis. (08/03/20) – Brian Shirley continued his recent hot-streak on Wednesday, dominating the DIRTcar Summer Nationals event at LaSalle (Ill.) Speedway. 

Shirley swept the night’s racing card in the Bob Cullen Racing No. 3s Hoker Trucking/ Thomason Express/ J&J Ventures Gaming/ Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The victory was Shirley’s third in four races on the tour. Stretching his point lead, Shirley was glad to be in Victory Lane one more time. “Listen, this sport’s very humbling,” Shirley said. “You can be good one night and be horrible the next. So we’re just going to do the best we can do and takes it as it comes.”

“To be honest, every race we go to, whether it’s Summer Nationals, World of Outlaws, heck, (even) a local $1,500-to-win race … every race is as tough as can be. Anymore, the competition is tough,” he said. "It doesn’t matter who comes in, where you go, what you do, it’s just super tough. All in all we just try to wake up every day, do the be job we can do as a team and prepare the car the best we can and just come to the race and do what the good Lord gives us.”

One 32 drivers in a stout roster, Shirley opened the program by setting QuickTime in his qualifying group, winning his heat race, and redrawing the pole for his feature starting spot.

At the drop of the green flag, Shirley took command. He went virtually unchallenged in the 40-lap affair and, by the time the white flag had come out, he’d lapped the field up to ninth.

Finishing 3.234 seconds ahead at the checkers, Shirley claimed his 30th career Summer National triumph and the $5,000 payday over Tyler Erb, Dennis Erb Jr., Shannon Babb, and Chase Junghans.

Continued rain at Peoria (Ill.) Speedway on Thursday forced officials to once again postpone the remainder of the July 9th DIRT Summer Nationals event.

Brian continues to lead the overall DIRTcar Summer Nationals standings. To learn more about these events, please visit

This week, Shirley looks to take on the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series in Wisconsin. On Tuesday, August 4 the tour heads to Beaver Dam Raceway for a $10,000-to-win event.

Sheppard Wins World of Outlaws Thriller at Davenport

World of Outlaws Invade Wisconsin this Week

SHINNSTON, W.Va. (08/03/20) – Brandon Sheppard added to his already impressive win tally this week with a pair World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series victories in the Valvoline No. 1 Seubert Calf Ranches/ Durham Racing Engines-powered Rocket Chassis House Car.

The Illinois ace claimed his third win in as many starts this season at Davenport (Iowa) Speedway on Tuesday before taking a preliminary feature win at Kokomo (Indiana) Speedway on Friday.

The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series made their second appearance of the season at Davenport Speedway. QuickTime in his qualifying group followed by a heat race win earned Brandon a spot in the feature redraw.

Drawing the fourth starting position for the $10,000-to-win feature, Sheppard took the lead for the finale time with four laps remaining in the 50-lapper to score the win. However, the fight to the finish wasn’t an easy one.

Sheppard and Jimmy Owens battled for second in the opening laps with Sheppard eventually taking the spot. Using the inside groove, Sheppard took the lead from Cade Dillard on lap 19.

On lap 35, Sheppard switched to the high line, opening the door for Dillard. An intense side-by-side battle ensued, with the two swapping the lead several times over the next ten laps.

With five to go, Dillard was caught in slower traffic on the bottom, allowing Sheppard to squeeze by on the top side to reassume the lead. In a mad dash to the finish, Sheppard crossed the finish line 0.521 seconds ahead of Dillard and Owens. Jimmy Mars and Chris Simpson rounded out the Top-5.

The Hoosier Dirt Shootout at Kokomo Speedway - boasting a $25,000-to-win finale on Saturday - took the place of the annual Prairie Dirt Classic at Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway after Covid-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of that event.

Friday’s preliminary program at Kokomo Speedway mirrored that of Fairbury’s Prairie Dirt Classic, with time trials setting the line-ups for a pair of 25-lap qualifying features. Sheppard earned the third starting spot for the second feature via his qualifying effort.

Polesitter Darrell Lanigan paced the opening two circuits before Sheppard forged ahead on the bottom. Sheppard worked the inside line of the quarter-mile oval the entire way, distancing himself 1.675 seconds ahead of Ricky Thornton Jr. at the checkers. Chase Junghans finished third with Tyler Erb and Mike Marlar completing the Top-5.

In the redraw for Saturday’s 75-lap main event, Sheppard earned the third position on the grid. Unfortunately, light rain prior to the start of the feature forced officials to postpone the finale to Sunday. Continued rain showers overnight at Kokomo Speedway left officials with no choice but to re-schedule the event. A makeup date was not immediately announced.

This week, Rocket1 Racing will follow the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series to Wisconsin. On Tuesday, August 4 the tour heads to Beaver Dam Raceway for a $10,000-to-win event. From Thursday-Saturday, August 6-8 the 33rd Annual USA Nationals take center stage at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond.
