July 3, 2019 - Howard Moore Parks It in USCS Victory Lane at Riverside
`A steamy Wednesday night took Howard Moore to Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas), where he was competing with the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour.

Behind the wheel of the Rains Motorsports No. 3 High Performance Lubricants Sprint Car, Howard screamed away from the field in his heat race to score the win.

Via his heat performance, he locked into the third-starting spot for the 30-lap feature.

A tricky surface awaited the 23-car field for the finale, and early in the feature Howard bided his time as he slipped back as far as the fourth position. By the midway point of the feature he found his way into the second spot behind race leader, Marshall Skinner.

On the 25th circuit of the 30 lapper Moore shot to the lead and went on to score the victory, which marked his third of 2019.

"I knew that my crew had given me a car that was capable of winning the race, and that I just had to do my job and that's exactly what I did," Moore said. "Thanks again to Mike [Ward], A.G. [Rains] and the whole team for giving me the opportunity for taking all of us to victory lane and holding the checkers. This gives us three wins on the season and two of them in the No. 3 car. Special thanks to CP Carillo, Engler Machine and Tool, Auto Meter Gauges, Schoenfeld Headers, Fel-Pro Gaskets and All Star Performance for their great support."

On Friday night Howard took the Rains Motorsports No. 3 into battle at Johnny Stokes' Magnolia Motor Speedway in another USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour event. After finishing second in his heat race, Moore earned the eighth-starting spot for the feature. Throughout the 30 lapper he worked his into a podium finish with a third-place performance behind Derek Hagar and Dale Howard.

Saturday night's event at Lexington 104 Speedway (Lexington, Tennessee) got off to an inauspicious start. The motor in Moore's No. 3 Sprinter expired in hot laps. The team thrashed and was able to replace the engine before heat race action. Howard went on to win the heat race from the second-starting position. Unfortunately, rain set in before the feature could be contested, forcing the remainder of the program to be postponed to a future date.

"I want to say a very special thanks to everyone who helped or even offered to help with the motor change," Moore noted. "Without everyone's help we wouldn't have been able to get back on track."

`Howard Moore piloted the Rains Motorsports No. 3 High Performance Lubricants Sprint Car to the Stealth Recovery American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Mid-South Region win on Saturday night at I-30 Speedway.

With 23 drivers in attendance, Howard stormed from the fifth-starting spot in his heat race to a runner-up finish. His performance made him the high point's driver, which sent him to the redraw.

The redraw presented Moore with the fourth-starting spot for the feature.

After seeing the initial start waved off, the race finally went green on the second attempt. During the first half of the race, Howard battled both fierce competition as well as a dirt `clod under his gas pedal. However, as the race progressed he began making passing cars before ultimately taking the lead late in the race. Moore went on to record the victory, which came over Wayne Johnson, Miles Paulus, Tim Crawley and Kyle Bellm.

"I feel like I threw the first half of the race away by making some mistakes as well as battling issues like having a huge dirt clod under my gas pedal that I finally stomped away," Moore commented. "I knew if I was going to win that I was going to have to get focused quickly because I was running out of laps. I don't even know what lap I took the lead."

"Thanks again to A.G. [Rains] for allowing me to drive his awesome car. I can't begin to express my gratitude to the entire Rains Motorsports team. Also, thanks to Mike Ward, Chad Jones, Ricky Holder, Kayle Stewart, Chris Chappue and dad for helping me throughout the night."

I hope to be of Greg Hodnett's caliber one day. It was very special for me to see Mike Ward receive the same award last night being my crew chief and the driver of Mr. Hoyt's B car winning 56 out of 58 races!

"I also want to say a special thanks to Rains Motorsports for the opportunity to driver their car. I'm also grateful that Mike [Ward] has been right there with me every step of the way.

"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, Rickey 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 sponsors and my fans for their never-ending support."
