PETERSEN MEDIA- Though commitments kept him away from the Gold Cup Race of Champions finale on Saturday night, Mason Moore was still in action on Wednesday night and Friday night and looking back at the week, Moore was pleased with how both teams performed.
“After an eighth place finish during a rubber down Civil War event, I was happy to run well with the World of Outlaws and line up on the pole of the feature event,” Moore said. “I made a couple of mistakes, and then some contact finished us off, but I was proud of our showing.”
In the midst of an extremely close Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster championship battle, Moore and the Friends and Family Racing team came out strong Wednesday night. Timing in third fastest in their qualifying flight, Moore would pick up a third place finish in his heat race and work his way into the Dash.
Pulling the seven pill in the redraw, Moore would work his way up to a fifth place finish which is where he would line up for the 30-lap feature event. With rubber down on the track prior to the green flag, the start of the race would be critical, and Moore would acknowledge he didn’t get off to the best start.
Running in the seventh spot, passing on the rubber down track was just not happening. Hoping to save his tires until the end of the feature event and get out with no issues, Moore would feel his right rear tire going down late in the race.
Able to hang on until the end, Moore would lose a position as he finished in the eighth spot, just two spots behind series point leader, Andy Forsberg.
Climbing aboard the Mason Moore Racing entry for Friday night’s World of Outlaws event, Moore would get off to a great start as he timed in second fastest during his qualifying flight.
Picking up the heat race win from his front row starting position, Moore would find himself on the front row of the Dash. Getting the best of Joey Saldana in the Dash, the Princeton, CA driver would find himself on the front row of the Gold Cup Race of Champions opening night feature event.
When the race came to life, Moore would make a couple of mistakes that saw him drift back inside the Top-Five. As the race went on, contact front another car would destroy his left rear and get him into the front stretch wall.
Able to make repairs, Moore’s promising night would end with an 18th place finish.
“Friday night ended with some disappointed, but it was great to show our stuff at our home track,” Moore said. “Thanks to the guys who help both teams for a good showing at Gold Cup.”
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 will be at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night, and at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the regular season finale for both tracks.
