PETERSEN MEDIA- Two nights of racing for Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team saw more consistency from the team as the driver from Princeton, CA picked up finishes of third and fourth place with the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster.
“This Friends and Family Racing team as been really strong all year long, and we continued to have really good speed this weekend during two pretty tough shows,” Mason Moore quipped.
Taking part in the 17th Annual Mel Hall Memorial on Saturday night at the Marysville Raceway, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Loval Office/LRB Race Products machine in sixth quickest amongst the 39 cars taking a time.
Finishing third during his heat race, Moore would just miss out on a Dash spot, and would line the potent No. x1 machine up in the fifth row for the 30-lap A Main event. On a track that provided some exciting action while the leaders were in traffic, Moore was able to work his way toward the top five, where he spent much of the race.
Battling with Jonathan Allard and Colby Wiesz late in the race, Moore would take the Ed Entz checkered flag with a fourth place finish.
Heading to his home track, the Silver Dollar Speedway, on Saturday night, Moore would earn quick times during his qualifying flight with 51 cars checked into the pit area.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Moore’s second place finish would put him in the six lap dash, which set the fir four rows of the 30-lap feature. Lining up on the front row, Moore would have a tough go as his fifth place finish placed him in the third row for the feature.
On an extremely slick track, Moore pedaled his car nicely in the opening stages as he hung in the Top-Five battling with Steven Tiner and again, Jonathan Allard.
Able to work his way into the third spot as the track began to take rubber, Moore would keep the tires under him in the final stage of the race as he closed his weekend out with a third place finish.
“Our consistency has been great and that is what helps win championships and races,” Moore said. “I cant thank the F&F team enough for the car they give me week in and week out, and hopefully this weekend we will be good again in Placerville, CA.”
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.
ON TAP: Moore will be back in action on Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway aboard the MMR No. 22 and at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night aboard the F&F Racing No. x1.
