Howard Moore Races to Podium Finish in 31st Short Track Nationals
Clinches 2018 ASCS Mid-South Region Title
Memphis, Tennessee (10/10/18) – Howard Moore enjoyed a career outing on Saturday night in his Stinson’s Industrial #40 Dynamic Electric/ XXX Chassis/ David McCarver Racing Engine Sprint Car. The talented, young driver led early in the 31st annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals before ultimately registering a third-place finish.
"My Friday night performance wasn't too spectacular, but we definitely turned it around on Saturday night," Moore commented. "To finish third in the Short Track Nationals might not seem like a big deal to a lot of people, but it's something very special to me. Our goal is to always win, but a podium in a race of that magnitude feels like a win. To also claim the ASCS Mid-South Region Championship on the same night, just makes things that much sweeter.
"I am grateful to Mr. Mike Ward for all he's done to help my team this year. I also want to recognize my Dad, Ricky and Mr. Billy for all of their hard work. Even on those nights, when I fall out of the seat they stand behind me. Last, but not least I want to thank all of my family, my sponsors and my fans for their never-ending support."
Howard Moore entered the opening round of the 31st annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) on Friday night.
With 73 Sprinters entered, Howard won his heat race from the third-starting position. He started fourth in his qualifier before slipping to a sixth-place finish. Via points, he started fourth in the B-Main. Moore challenged for the third-and-final transfer spot for the duration of the B-Main, before finishing fourth, which left him one spot short of a transfer, ending his night.
On Saturday night the stakes were raised as a $10,141 top prize was posted for the finale of the mega event. Seventy-four drivers looked to take their best shot at notching their names into the history books, and Howard hit the ground running by winning his heat race from the third-starting spot. He backed up his heat race performance with a fifth-to-second run in his qualifier.
Via his preliminary performances Howard locked into not only the feature, but also the Mike Pack Building Materials Dash for Cash. Charging to the $500 win in the Dash, Howard earned the pole position for the 41-lap finale, where he was joined on the front row by Joe B. Miller.
As the feature went green Howard jumped to the early lead and extended his early advantage to as much as half a straight away over Miller and a hard-charging Blake Hahn.
Moore led until lap 13, when Hahn shot by for the lead. He pursued the new leader for the next several laps. Late in the race, Sam Hafertepe Jr. moved in to challenge Moore for the runner-up spot and the duo battled side by side for the ensuing circuits. Hafertepe Jr. eventually took over the runner-up spot, pushing Howard back to the third position.
The Memphis, Tennessee racer went on to finish third behind Hahn and Hafertepe Jr. and with his effort achieved the best COMP Cams Short Track Nationals finish of his career. With his performance he also clinched the 2018 American Sprint Car Series Mid-South Region Championship.
Full results from the event are available at www.I-30Speedway.com .
This weekend – October 12-13 – the team plans to enter the annual Flip-Flop 54 at Riverside International Speedway. The United Sprint Car Series program will include preliminary action on Friday night, while Saturday night will see a pair of $2,700-to-win features held. If a driver can sweep both features, he or she will receive a $2,700 bonus.

Dunn Benson Motorsports and Bobby Pierce to Part Ways after the DTWC
Dunn, NC (October 10, 2018) - Kemp Lamm owner of the Dunn Benson Motorsports Race Team has announced driver Bobby Pierce will leave the Team after the Dirt Track World Championship in Portsmouth, OH on October 20th. Bobby who had a one-year contract with Dunn Benson Motorsports for 2018, notified Kemp Lamm on October 9th that he has decided to return to his family owned team for 2019 vacating the driver's seat at Dunn Benson Motorsports. Bobby was offered a new contract to return in 2019 as the driver of the Dunn Benson Motorsports Team, but decided the DTWC would be his last event with the Dunn, NC based race team.
The Dunn Benson Motorsports Team partnered with Bobby Pierce at the beginning of 2018 with the primary focus to run for a National Championship on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2018.

"Bobby has tremendous driving ability and talent for someone only 21 years of age. It has been exciting to watch him drive our car this year winning 4 events and coming from the rear to the front on so many occasions. I offered him an opportunity to return as our driver in 2019 and compete for a National Championship, but he informed me that he wants to return to driving his family owned team in 2019. We wish him well on his 2019 plans. Hopefully we can get one more win with Bobby at the DTWC", stated Kemp Lamm, owner of Dunn Benson Motorsports.
