Howard Moore Prevails In ASCS Regional Showdown At I-30 Speedway

By Bryan Hulbert
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 9, 2017) Chasing the lead for the first 19 laps, ASCS American Sprint Car Series Mid-South Region Top Story Logo to top the ASCS regional showdown between the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products and the ASCS Mid-South Region.

Taking the green from the third starting spot, Moore looked on as Alex Sewell and Charlie Louden battled for the point with the ‘X’ machine of Louden getting the advantage. Fighting the car after the nose wing fell flat on the No. 8, the damaged airfoil allowed Moore to hunt down the runner-up spot on Lap 10.
Making up ground on the ‘X’ as the leader weaved through traffic, Charlie was able to keep Howard about a half straightaway behind, but as Lap 20 began, the ‘X’ rolled to a stop off the exit of the second turn.
Green with six laps to go, Howard Moore had the advantage of a slower car between himself and Seth Bergman. Unable to clear the No. 31 of Justin Webb, one final caution with three laps to go was still not enough as Howard Moore picked up the win. Crossing up slide jobs throughout the final three laps, Andy McElhannon edged Seth Bergman for the runner-up spot.
Charging from 15th, Derek Hagar raced to fourth with Alex Sewell salvaging a fifth place finish.
Johnny Herrera was sixth from the 11th starting spot with Kade Morgan seventh. Matt Covington from 16th finished eighth with Marshall Skinner following from the 28th starting spot. Jeremy Middleton made up the top-ten.
The ASCS Mid-South Region races again on Sunday, September 10 at Diamond Park Speedway in Murfreesboro, Ark.
