October 13, 2018 - Howard Moore Earns Pole Position in First Flip-Flop Feature
1The United Sprint Car Series (USCS) sanctioned the opening round of the annual Flip Flop 54 on Friday night as 33 competitors converged on the 1/4-mile gumbo oval.

Howard started his night by winning his heat race from the pole position in his Dynamic Electric No. 40 Sprinter. Via his performance he was the fourth-highest point earner, which locked him into the pole scramble.

Howard charged to the win in the pole scramble to lock into the pole position for the first of two Saturday night, $2,700-to-win features. Unfortunately, rain on Saturday would force the balance of the weekend to be postponed by October 27.

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."
