October 21, 2017 - Top-10 Run for Howard Moore in MWR Debut
1Howard Moore made his debut behind the wheel of the Mike Ward Racing #88 Sprint Car on Friday night at Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas).

Twenty-eight Sprint Cars took part in the opening night of the annual United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Fall Nationals.

A slow start to the night on a heavy track found Howard finishin 7th in his heat race, which sent him to the B-Main. A fifth-to-third run in his B-Main positioned Howard 17th on the starting grid for the 25-lap feature. He enjoyed a great run in the feature as he advanced to a sixth-place finish behind Dale Howard, Marshall Skinner, Ernie Ainsworth, Jordon Mallett, and Andy McElhannon.

Saturday night found Howard starting his night by winning the Hoosier Tire Power Dash. In heat-race action he advanced from the fourth-starting spot to a runner-up finish. The feature redraw positioned him second on the starting grid for the night's first 25-lapper. He registered a third-place finish in the feature behind Derek Hagar and Cody Gardner.

The second feature found the finishing order from the first finale, fully inverted. As a result Howard started 15th on the grid and raced his way to a sixth-place run.

"I was excited when Mr. Mike Ward asked me to run his car in Mr. Tim's (Crawley) absence," Howard said. "You always learn when you get the opportunity to run with someone of his caliber. I am still taking it all in. I am so grateful for the confidence he placed in me to run his car this weekend. He and Mr. Billy were very good to me. Thanks again to Mr. Mike for the opportunity and good times. I also appreciate Mr. Johnny Smith and his son keeping the car, helmet clean, and for the pictures all weekend, as well as for the company at the trailer!"

October 14, 2017 - Short Track Nationals Takes Howard Moore to I-30 Speedway
1The 30th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals took Howard Moore to I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) to kick off the three-day affair on Thursday evening.

A stacked list of 71 entries looked to tackle the 1/4-mile bullring as the first night of preliminary action was contested.

A 5th-to-4th run on a slimy track in his heat race positioned Howard starting 9th in his qualifier. He would only manage to advance a single spot in the qualifier, which sent him to a B-Main, where he started 8th.

Howard got up on the wheel in the B-Main and took the 3rd and final transfer spot to earn the 19th starting spot for the 25-lap feature. He would go on to mount a great run to a 10th-place finish in the opening night's finale.

Friday night's preliminary action would not treat Howard quite as well. A poor pill draw and challenging track conditions, left him falling short of qualifying for the night's feature.

On Saturday evening, the championship night was held for the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals. After again drawing a big pill he started on the tail of his heat race before advancing to an 8th-place finish. As a result he was relegated to a B-Main event.

The B-Main found Howard making a valiant charge through the field to claim the third-and-final transfer spot to the feature. His finish in the consolation event earned him his first-career start in a Short Track Nationals finale. After starting 19th in the 40-lap feature, Howard retired early in the event with an ill-handling car.

Overall it was a fantastic weekend for the team.
