PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to racing action on Friday night in Chico, CA Mason Moore was able to hang on to a slim point lead by way of his third place finish at Silver Dollar Speedway as he chases after the track championship.
“It was a pretty good night for our team,” Moore said. “We put ourselves in good spots all night long and we were able to come away with a podium finish and keep a slim point lead.”
Timing the Mike’s Harder Lemonade/Garth Moore Insurance/FK Rod Ends backed No. 22 entry fifth fastest in qualifying time trials, Moore would line up on the front row of his heat race on a very fast and tacky Silver Dollar Speedway surface.
Getting the jump in his heat, Moore would cruise to the win which would put him in the all important nightly redraw. Having some luck, the two pill would place him on the front row for the feature event as he would start alongside Sean Becker.
When the green flag was displayed to the field, Becker would get the jump on Moore and the Princeton, CA driver would settle into second on a surface that was still extremely fast.
Continuing to chase after the multi-time track champion, Moore would get close to Becker on a few occasions but was unable to make his way by to take over the race’s top spot.
In the race’s closing laps, Moore would see Andy Forsberg race by him dropping him back to third. Able to hang on to third in the final laps, Moore would finish there and keep a two-point advantage over Forsberg heading into this week’s race.
“This point battle is going to come down to the wire, so it puts pressure on you to race smart and be prepared even more each and every week,” Moore added. “I feel like we have a great team put together, and have a great chance at pulling this off.”
Brian Cannon Motorsports would like to thank Mike’s Harder Lemonade, Garth Moore Insurance, FK Rod Ends, and Mountain Mikes Pizza for their support in 2018.
