Howard Moore Snares Fall Nationals Win at Riverside
Howard Moore returned to his winning ways on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway aboard his Rains Motorsports No. 3 Mike’s Pool Care JR-1 Chassis Sprint Car.
His second trip to Victory Lane in 2023 came during the historic facility’s Fall Nationals.
“It was great to get to race close to home again. I appreciate everything the team does for me. They work hard to do all they can to give me the best car every weekend. I am fully aware of how fortunate I am to have this team along with the opportunity that A.G. (Rains) has given me. A.G. works tirelessly to keep us on the track and on the road. To say I am grateful to this team and our sponsors would be an understatement,” Moore said.
“We’re excited for the Short Track Nationals this weekend. It’ll definitely be different not being at Little Rock (I-30 Speedway), but it’s really awesome that the Crawley family is carrying on the event’s legacy at Texarkana (67 Speedway).”
After spending much of the season crisscrossing the country competing with the American Sprint Car Series, Howard finally had the chance to race close to home again on Saturday night with a trip to Clayton Allen’s Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Ark.).
Going into competition in the annual Fall Nationals, Howard started his night with a fifth-to-second charge in his heat race, which lined him up on the pole for the feature.
Surrendering the lead to Sammy Swindell as the finale went green. Howard pursued Swindell until lap 16, when he took advantage in lapped traffic to assume control of the lead.
Moore never looked back en route to his second win of the season, crossing the checkered flag in front of Derek Hagar and Swindell.
