Februray 3, 2019 - Howard Moore Recognized at Riverside Banquet
Howard Moore attended the 2018 Riverside International Speedway banquet on Saturday night. Going into the banquet he knew that he would be recognized as the 2019 Track Champion, but he received an additional, unexpected award.

Howard was presented with the inaugural Greg Hodnett Pursuing Excellence Award.

"I can't find the words to express how grateful I was to be garnered the Greg Hodnett Pursuing Excellence award," Moore said. "That very well may top any award I have been given thus far. I am honored and humbled to have been given this award from his best friend Clayton Allen.

"I want to thank everyone for helping me get to where I am. I know it isn't an award that I could achieve on my own and I appreciate all of the support. Thanks to Mr. David Berryman for his support and joining us at the banquet. Thanks to Mr. Mike Ward for helping me weekly no matter what car we are racing and always being there for me. His help is unwavering and means a lot to me.

"I am ready to get the year started and I am hoping for the best one yet."

Howard also claimed the 2018 American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Mid-South Region Championship.

December 15, 2018 - Howard Moore Competes in Junior Knepper Memorial
1Howard Moore returned to action on Saturday evening with a trip to the Southern Illinois Center, where he was behind the wheel of the Chris Chappue Racing #55 Midget.

The annual Junior Knepper Memorial drew a field of 70 Midgets to the indoor bull ring.

After pulling a big number at the pill draw, Howard started ninth in his heat race before moving to a 5th-place finish. Qualifier action positioned Moore on the pole, and a few bobbles relegated him to a third-place finish.

The top 14 in points from preliminary action locked into the feature. Unfortunately, Moore was 22nd, so he was forced to run a B-Main. He raced to a third-place finish in his B-Main, which earned him the 17th-starting position for his first-career, Midget feature.

The feature was a learning experience for the talented, young driver. He went down a lap early in the event, but turned strong laps throughout the remainder of the race on his way to a 12th-place finish.

"It was a great experience as I prepare to enter my first Chili Bowl in January," Moore said. "I want to win every race I enter, but I was just proud to finish the 55-lap race. I just want to thank everyone, who made this possible. I can't wait until the Chili Bowl."

October 6, 2018 - Howard Moore Finishes Third in 31st Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals; Clinches 2018 ASCS Mid-South Region Championship
1Howard Moore entered the opening round of the 31st annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) on Friday night.

With 73 Sprinters entered Howard won his heat race from the third-starting position. He started fourth in his qualifier before slipping to a sixth-place finish. Via points, he started fourth in the B-Main. Moore challenged for the third-and-final transfer spot for the duration of the B-Main, before finishing fourth, which left him one spot short of a transfer, ending his night.

On Saturday night the stakes were raised as a $10,141 top prize was posted for the finale of the mega event. Seventy-four drivers looked to take their best shot at notching their names into the history books, and Howard hit the ground running by winning his heat race from the third-starting spot. He backed up his heat race performance with a fifth-to-second run in his qualifier.

1Via his preliminary performances Howard locked into not only the feature, but also the Mike Pack Building Materials Dash for Cash. Charging to the $500 win in the Dash, Howard earned the pole position for the 41-lap finale, where he was joined on the front row by Joe B Miller.

As the feature went green Howard jumped to the early lead and extended his early advantage to as much as half a straight away over Miller and a hard-charging Blake Hahn.

Moore led until lap 13, when Hahn shot by for the lead. He pursued the new leader for the next several laps. Late in the race, Sam Hafertepe Jr. moved in to challenge Moore for the runner-up spot and the duo battled side by side for the ensuing circuits. Hafterepe Jr. eventually took over the runner-up spot, pushing Howard back to the third position.

The Memphis, Tennessee racer went on to finish third behind Hahn and Hafertepe Jr. and with his effort achieved the best COMP Cams Short Track Nationals finish of his career. With his performance he also clinched the 2018 American Sprint Car Series Mid-South Region Championship.

"My Friday night performance wasn't too spectacular, but we definitely turned it around on Saturday night," Moore commented. "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."
