Mason Moore 17th During Trophy Cup Finale


PETERSEN MEDIA- An up and down weekend at the 23rd Annual Trophy Cup came to a close on Saturday night with Mason Moore finish 17th in the 50-lap feature event.

“It wasn’t the greatest weekend for myself and this team, but these guys worked hard and we were able to race out way into the feature on Saturday,” Mason Moore said.

Getting off to a rough start during time trials on Thursday night, Moore would hop through a hole during his first lap and get into the infamous Thunderbowl Raceway wall.

With his team able to make repairs, Moore would get one lap at the end of the session and end up 15th fastest. Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Moore would have a good run going until he lost the handle and ended up finishing in the sixth spot.

Lining up deep in the opening night ‘B’ main, Moore would string together 20 hard laps that saw him get within striking distance of the feature event. Getting to the fifth spot, Moore just could not make anything happen to get into the final transfer position and his night would come to an early end.

Back in action on Friday night, the Princeton, CA pilot would time in sixth fastest in time trials before a seventh place finish in his heat race. Not transferring into the feature event, Moore would capitalize on a front row starting position in the semi and pick up the win and move on.

Following extensive track prep prior to the feature, Moore would roll off from the 20th starting position. With the track staying locked down and extremely fast for much of the feature, Moore was handcuffed deep in the field. Unable to work his way forward and pick up valuable points, he would finish in the 20th spot.

Sitting 29th in points heading into Saturday’s Trophy Cup finale, Moore would win his heat race from the second row and find himself in the second row of the 25-lap ‘B’ Main event.

Jumping into the early lead, Moore would withstand a few stoppages and restarts to race his way to the win, and move into the 50-lap Trophy Cup feature event.

In years past Moore would have line up in the second row, but a wrinkle in 2016 put B Main cars to the back of the pack, and Moore would line up in the 11th row for the feature event.

In the back of the pack, Moore would go down a lap during a fast paced opening 35-lap segment, but was still able to pick up a few positions. Working his way up to the 17th spot at the stripe, Moore would end up 22nd in the final Trophy Cup points.

“We wanted to have a better weekend and be in the hunt, but things just didn’t go our way,” Moore added. “Heat races seemed to give me fits until Saturday night, but my guys didn’t give up. It was a busy weekend for the F&F Racing team and I have to thank them for all of their hard work.”

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, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

ON TAP: Moore and the F&F Racing team will be back in action Friday night at Placerville Speedway.
