Howard Moore Tops Riverside’s Jimmy Huffman Memorial
Preps for USCS Event at Thunderhill Raceway Park

Memphis, Tennessee (10/19/20) – On Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway Howard Moore achieved the hat trick in 2020 305 c.i. Sprint Car competition. In his third start of the year in the division, he picked up third-consecutive win by topping the annual Jimmy Huffman Memorial with the Midsouth 305 Sprint Car Association (MSCA).

The Tennessee racer piloted the Rains Motorsports / CP Carrillo No. 3 High Performance Lubricants / River City Hydraulics Sprint Car topped a talent-laden field of 29 entries to snare the victory.

“Jimmy Huffman was a great friend to everyone in the racing world, and to be able to win his memorial event means a lot to me and the whole team,” Moore said. “The feature was filled with cautions, but we were able to be patient and come from the sixth-starting spot to get the convincing win.

“As always I have to thank everyone who supports my team, and I want to say a very special thank you to Chad Jones for lending us his 305 engine. It was a great night with a lot of great friends and family around.”

The night began with Howard advancing from the sixth-starting spot in his heat race to a second-place finish, which positioned him sixth on the grid for the main event. Enduring multiple cautions throughout the feature, Moore was able to patiently work his way to the lead. Once out front he dominantly lapped all the way to the fourth position at the ¼-mile bullring.

The victory was his fifth of the 2020 campaign. Derek Hagar, Eddie Gallagher, Paxton Gregory and Chase Howard completed the Top-5 finishers.

Full results from the event are available at .

Howard and the Rains Motorsports team will invade Thunderhill Raceway Park this weekend – October 23-24 – as the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) sanctions the Thunder on the High Banks at the clay oval.

Tyler Stevens Races to Runner-Up Finish in Cotton Bowl Cup
Louisiana Dirt Track State Championship at Boothill Up Next

Searcy, Arkansas (10/19/20) – Tyler Stevens continued his late-season surge over the weekend by piloting his Stallion Transportation Group No. 2 Level 1 Driving Academy/ W&W Timber / XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model to a runner-up finish in the Cotton Bowl Cup.

Crate Late Model competition took Tyler Stevens to Clayhill Motorsports over the weekend, where he entered the annual Cotton Bowl Cup at the red clay oval. Starting at the back of his heat race on Friday night, Tyler advanced to a runner-up finish, which position him fourth on the starting grid for Saturday evening’s $3,000-to-win finale.

On a dry and challenging track, the Arkansan jumped to the second spot early in the feature and challenged leader, Christian Hanger, a few times in lapped traffic before ultimately settling for a runner-up finish at the checkered flag.

“We got our nose under Christian (Hanger) a few times in lapped traffic, but just couldn’t seal the deal. After our first five nights in the Late Model we have ran one weekly show and four specials. We have one win, two seconds, one third and one DNF. The transition to Late Models has been a big learning curve, but we are getting there,” Stevens shared. “Looking back on the change I’m so glad we made it. Racing is better, pay is better, way less tore up equipment, and just all around better in my opinion. I recommend to other drivers in the Modified division to give it a chance.

“As for our team, we’re preparing to go after our second Late Model win of the year this coming weekend in the Louisiana State Championship.”

TLP motorsports will trek south this coming weekend – October 23-24 – to Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, Louisiana), where they’ll compete in the 48th annual Louisiana Dirt Track State Championship. Rescheduled from September, the event includes a $1,000 top prize for Crate Late Models on Friday night and a $2,000 winner’s check on the line on Saturday night.

Fans can also support Tyler and TLP Motorsports by heading over to and picking up the brand-new team shirt and hoodie.

Brandon Sheppard Wins Fourth Dirt Track World Championship
Earns Dirt Late Model Racing’s Richest Payday of 2020

SHINNSTON, W.Va. (10/19/20) – For the second-straight year and the fourth time in his young career, Brandon Sheppard has won the Dirt Track World Championship.

The driver of the Valvoline No. 1 Seubert Calf Ranches/ Durham Racing Engines-powered Rocket Chassis took the lead on the 24th lap of Saturday’s 100-lapper and led the rest of the way to earn the $100,000 payday.

“I will tell you what, I love this place. As hard as its been all weekend I knew it was going to be around the bottom at the end of the race. I knew when I rolled out there for the race, drive as hard as I could to get to the front as soon as I could. So that was kind of the game plan. We went a little different on tires than we normally do here. We had an early game, but once we got the lead we didn’t know what we were going to do.”

Sixty-three Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series entries converged at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park Friday to kick off the 40th Annual Dirt Track World Championship. After qualifying third in his group, the invert would position Sheppard starting third in his heat race. He went on to finish second behind Scott Bloomquist to earn the 11th starting position for Saturday’s finale.

Quickly marching his way to the front, Sheppard went around polesitter Tim McCreadie to take command on lap 24. Holding off a midrace challenge from Zack Dohm, Brandon earned Dirt Late Model racing’s richest payday of 2020.

“Our car was good just like it has been all year long. I think that’s 31 wins this year so that’s really awesome. During those cautions I had too much time to think about my right rear tire for sure. When I was in lap traffic I tried to pass them one time and I didn’t feel good and so I tucked back in behind them. Zack showed me his nose on the outside and when he showed the line a little bit different in one and two, that got me going a little bit better.”

Sheppard’s victory over Ricky Thornton Jr., McCreadie, Chris Madden, and Tyler Erb was his 31st overall this. He also became the second-winningest all-time driver in the 40-year history of the Dirt Track World Championship.

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 6846 points | Third (82-points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 19, 2020) - In the final multi-destination weekend of the 2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a consistent campaign, this time securing back-to-back top-ten performances including a podium run during the second edition of the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday, October 17.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, was almost perfect during Lake Ozark’s Jason Johnson tribute. The ten-time World of Outlaws champion ignited his evening by recording the second fastest time during qualifying time trials, finishing second during heat race action soon thereafter. Schatz eventually finished third in the $15,000-to-win main event, bouncing ahead one spot while out dueling the likes of Aaron Reutzel, Sheldon Haudenschild and Kerry Madsen.

“It was a guessing game of what was going to happen when they redid the track there for the Feature,” Schatz said of Lake Ozark. “It got really fast on the top and kind of took everything away from the bottom. Kind of thought that’s where it was going to go, so that’s the direction we went. We tightened the car up and got laid over a little too much.”

In total, Schatz advanced seven feature positions during his Kansas/Missouri road trip, kicking things off with a rally from 14th to eighth during his Lakeside Speedway start on Friday, October 16. The Fargo, North Dakota-native earned his way into Lakeside’s feature program with a fourth-place result during his respective heat race.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their quest toward the 2020 World of Outlaws championship with a visit to Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on Saturday, October 24. Schatz will enter Kokomo’s gates third in the Series driver championship chase trailing defending World of Outlaws champion and current point leader, Brad Sweet, by 82 markers. Mathematically speaking, Schatz is not out of the hunt for an 11th Series title.

San Jose, California’s Tim Kaeding manned the wheel of Tony Stewart’s familiar No. 14 during the two-day World of Outlaws swing through Kansas and Missouri and helped Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing double their success rate. Kaeding capped the two-race weekend with his own pair of top-ten results, headlining the weekend with a fourth-place run at Lakeside Speedway. The third-generation racer went on to finish seventh at Lake Ozark after starting 11th.

Fans are encouraged to follow the progress of Donny Schatz, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 15/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing motorsports team on the Web and on social media.
