Second at Placerville Highlights Three-Race Swing for Colby Copeland




Piloting the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No. x1jr entry for a trio of races over the Independence Day weekend, Colby Copeland would highlight the stretch with a second place finish at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.
 
“Saturday night we were really good and ran second, Sunday night we had an oil gauge break on the 15th lap, and on Monday we just kind of missed it and struggled,” Copeland explained.
 
The busy swing kicked off at the ¼ mile bullring Placerville Speedway on Saturday night where the Roseville, CA driver would time in fourth fastest during qualifying time trials.
 
Running third in his heat, Copeland would move into the feature event, and also punch his ticket into the redraw where he would grid the field from the second row.
 
When the race came to life, Copeland would settle into the third spot as he chased after the lead duo of Steven Tiner and Justyn Cox. As the two leaders got to battling on the fifth lap, Copeland would close in but could not quite get to them.
 
Continuing to run third, a late caution would shake the running order up a bit. As the field came back to green, the leaders would make contact, and it would result in Copeland taking over the second spot.
 
Running second the final eight laps, Copeland would hang and finish second on this night.
 
Heading to Stockton, CA on Sunday night to battle with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Copeland would race his way to a heat race win and transfer into the feature event where he would line up in the fifth row.
 
On a track that took rubber extremely early, Copeland would run inside the Top-10 early on as passing was at a premium. Lap 15 would prove detrimental for Copeland as an oil gauge would fail and it would force him to take his machine back to the pit area.
 
Petaluma Speedway was the scene for Copeland’s third and final race of the week on Monday night, and he would get the night started by finishing third in his heat and again transfer the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes entry directly into the feature event.
 
Lining up third in the Dash, Copeland would finish in the second spot and sit on the front row of the 40-lap feature event as he would look to get one spot better than the last time the series visited the track.
 
Settling into the second spot when the race came to life, Copeland would spend the first 10-laps chasing after Ryan Bernal as they worked around the Petaluma Speedway in thick lapped traffic.
 
A restart on the 10th lap would see Copeland lose a few spots as he would slip back to the fourth spot before another stoppage on lap 12. As the laps clicked off, Copeland would seem to struggle to maintain his track position as he slowly slipped back to finish 13th.
 
“It was good to run up front Saturday, and then Sunday night we just had some bad luck, but with the way the track was we were probably going to run 10th or so,” Copeland noted. “Monday night we had a good night going, but we just kind of missed it in the feature and fell back. Thanks to the F&F guys for all of their hard work.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: F&F Racing and Colby Copeland will be idle for a couple of weekends before returning to action on July 29th in Fernley, NV.
 
2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-11, Wins-0, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-4.

Tough Stretch for Mason Moore and F&F Racing



If it wasn’t for bad luck over the last week, Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team wouldn’t have had any luck at all. In three races over Independence Day weekend, Moore and company would be involved in three incidents that resulted in two DNF’s.
 
“It was a tough weekend for sure,” Moore said. “We just didn’t seem to have anything go our way in any of the three feature events we were in.”
 
Kicking off on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Moore would get off to a nice start as he timed in second fastest in qualifying time trials, and won his heat race aboard the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune/Twisted team backed No. x1.
 
Moving into the feature event, Moore would find himself running in the sixth spot until issues with another car on the 18th brought him to a stop and forced him to the back of the pack.
 
In the final seven laps, Moore would do what he could in a short amount of time as he fought back to finish 12th.
 
Sunday night the team traveled to Stockton, CA to take on the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Timing in third quickest in his heat race group, Moore would finish second in his heat race and move into the feature event.
 
Just missing out on a spot in the Dash, Moore would line up in the ninth starting spot for the feature event. Moore’s night would come to an abrupt end when the green flag waived, as he would get into the cushion in turn three wrong and get upside down and end his night.
 
Monday night saw the team in action for one final time for the weekend as they traveled to Petaluma Speedway for another showdown with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.
 
Timing in fifth fastest in his qualifying group, Moore would grid the field from the fifth starting spot in his heat race. Working his way forward, Moore would finish third and transfer into the 40-lap feature event.
 
Finding himself back in the 16th starting position, Moore would work his way forward as he would get as high as the 11th spot before more bad luck. On lap 28, Moore would have issues with his right-rear as the wheel would break and it would again end his night prematurely.
 
“It was a brutal three nights of racing” Moore said. “I have to thank the F&F Racing guys for not giving up even though it seemed like the easier choice a couple of times. We will keep working hard and gear up for Fernley.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: Moore and the F&F Racing team will take a couple of weekends off before returning to action on July 29th in Fernley, NV.
 
2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-15, Wins-1, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-6.

Mason Moore 12th at Placerville Speedway on Saturday Night



PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night following a win one week ago, Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team would struggle a little bit as Moore finished 12th.
 
“We just couldn’t seem to get going on Saturday night,” Moore said. “The track was tricky and I just couldn’t make anything happen in the feature event.”
 
With 30 winged sprint cars checked in on Saturday night for Fan Appreciation Night, Moore would time the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Tea No. x1 machine in 15th quickest in time trials.
 
Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Moore would need to grab the win to become eligible for the nightly redraw. Running second to Sean Becker, Moore would advance into the 25-lap “A” main, but would not make the redraw meaning he would grid the field towards the back of the pack.
 
Lining up in the seventh row, Moore couldn’t seem to get going on an uncharacteristic June Placerville Speedway surface. With rough patches in both corners thanks to some late week rain, Moore would have his hands full as he tried to navigate through he field.
 
Unable to make up much ground, the Princeton, CA pilot would go on to finish in the 12th spot.
 
“It was just one of those nights that happens,” Moore said. “Racing has ups and downs, and the goal is to have more ups than downs so we wont dwell on this night too much, and will look forward to having a better night on Saturday night in Antioch, CA.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: Moore will climb aboard his Mason Moore Racing No. 22 entry on Friday night to battle in Chico, CA before he meets back up with the F&F Racing team on Saturday night in Antioch, CA for another round with the SCCT.
 
2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-10, Wins-1, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-5.

Moore and F&F Racing Win First Race of Season




PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh in town following a family trip, Mason Moore would lead all 25 laps at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night en route to his first win of the 2017 season.
 
“It was a needed little get away with my family, but it felt good to get back home and to get racing,” Moore said. “We have had a fast F&F Racing car all season long, and I am happy to get a win for this team.”
 
Timing the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Team No. x1 machine in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials, Moore would line up in the second row of his heat race.
 
Needing to win to make himself eligible for the draw, Moore would get his elbows up as he tip-toed around the slippery surface to grab the win. Getting a spot in the draw, Moore would have a little luck on his side as the one pill placed him on the pole of the 25-lap affair.
 
When the race got underway, Moore led the way on the bottom of the speedway as the low groove proved to be the place to be. As laps clicked off, Moore would continue keep perennial Placerville Speedway favorites, Greg DeCaires and Andy Forsberg at bay as he rode the bottom to perfection.
 
As Moore continued to stretch out his lead, the action behind him would pick up as drivers did what they could to track him down. With six-laps to go, Moore would face his biggest challenge in Andy Forsberg. With Forsberg making the top work, Moore would change his line a little in hopes of keeping his competitor at bay.
 
The result would be Moore and Forsberg banging wheels, with Moore staying out front and Forsberg falling back. Able to keep his composure the final six laps, Moore would hang on for his first win of the season.
 
“We set a pretty good pace all night long on the bottom, but late in the race Forsberg got the top working” Moore said. “I tried to slide myself to keep him behind me but he was already up there and we touched. It was shaping up to get exciting, but fortunately we were able to hang on and win.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: Moore and F&F Racing will head up to Placerville Speedway for a night of weekly action on Saturday night.




Mason Moore 12th With SCCT While Racing Under the Weather





Waking up Saturday morning unsure if he would even be up for a night of racing, Mason Moore fought through flu-like symptoms and scored a 12th place finish with the new Sprint Car Challenge Tour in Stockton, CA.
 
“I woke up Saturday not feeling well at all, and really didn’t know if I would even be able to race,” Moore said. “I rested and got fluids as much as I could and decided I would make every effort for my team.”
 
Battling the elements, Moore would get his night started off by timing the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune/Twisted Tea No. x1 machine in fifth fastest in his heat race group, lining him up in the third row.
 
Unable to race his way into one of the four transfer spots that were available in heat races, Moore would take the Levin’s Auto Supply/Garth Moore Insurance/LRB Race Products sprinter into the 15-lap ‘B’ Main.
 
Lining up in the second row of the semi, the Princeton, CA driver would take care of business as he battled with Shawn Conde and Sean Becker well within a transfer spot to finish third and keep his night going.
 
Moving into the 35-lap ‘A’ Main event, Moore would line the F&F Racing entry up in the 20th starting position.
 
With cautions plaguing much of the race, Moore did what he could to keep his nose clean while mired deep in the field on an extremely slick Stockton Dirt Track surface. Able to pick up spots as they were there for the taking, Moore would tough it out and end up with a 12th place finish.
 
“I have to thank my guys for working extra hard for me Saturday night,” Moore said. “It wasn’t the most fun night to be at the races, but they worked hard and we ended up salvaging it. Looking forward to getting back to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

Colby Copeland Plagued by Mechanical Issues in Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No. x1jr




PETERSEN MEDIA- Looking for a little redemption with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour after coming so close to a feature event win in the tour’s last race, Colby Copeland would battle engine woes in Stockton on Saturday night as he would not make the feature event.
 
“We fought issues all night long, and it resulted in us not making the show,” Colby Copeland said. “The F&F Racing guys worked hard all night long, and hopefully we can come back strong in a couple of weeks.”
 
Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No. x1jr entry in fifth fastest in his qualifying group, the Roseville, CA driver would line up in the third row of his heat race.
 
Unable to make the transfer, the Roseville, CA dirver would finish in the sixth spot and make his way to the night’s ‘B’ Main event. Lining up in the sixth row of the semi, the issues would worsen for Copeland and company, and he would pull his machine of the track on the second lap and the team’s night would come to an early end.
 
“Something finally let go in the semi, and it ended our night,” Copeland said. “Again, thanks to the guys, and everyone who makes this possible for this team.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.

Mason Moore Second at Placerville with F&F Racing


Returning to Placerville Speedway with F&F Racing, Mason Moore would fight of some late race gremlins to score a second place finish.
 
“It was a pretty good night for our team in Placerville, CA,” Mason Moore said. “We had a pretty good car and were in contention to win but we started to lose power steering and it got tough to drive.”
 
Timing the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Tea No. x1 sprinter in 12th fastest in qualifying time trials Moore would get the jump from the front row of his heat race and pick up the win.
 
By way of his win, the Princeton, CA driver would earn a spot in the important redraw where the one pill would line him up on the front row of the 25-lap feature event.
 
Lining up next to another strong competitor at Placerville Speedway, Greg DeCaires, Moore would drop the hammer when the green lights flashed as he would jump out to the early lead.
 
Taking a liking to the bottom of the speedway, Moore would lead the way, as the race would come to a stop on the seventh lap.
 
Continuing to lead the way, Moore would start to have problems with his power steering that began to make his machine tough to drive. Still up front, Moore would lose the top spot on the 15th lap as he continued to pedal the bottom of the speedway.
 
Able to hang on to the second spot, Moore would actually close back in on DeCaires in the race’s final laps. Giving him a valiant effort, the reigning track champ would come up short as he settled for second at the line.
 
“Once we got passed I was just trying to hang on, and we actually still ran really well,” Moore added. “Huge thanks to these guys for working so hard, and giving us a car that was in the mix all night.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

Mechanical Issues Hamper Moore and F&F Racing during Bradway Memorial


Running the F&F Racing No. x1 machine in Saturday night’s Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial, Mason Moore would see mechanical issues sideline him in what was a wild feature event.
 
“It was really cool to be in the Bradway car at the Bradway Memorial, but unfortunately we had issues knock us out of the race,” Moore said. “It was a wild night, and I am lucky we were able to roll our car back into the trailer.”
 
Taking on the King of the West Series during Saturday’s 27th Annual Dave Bradway Memorial, Moore would time the Geico Local Office/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Team backed No. x1 sprinter in 13th fastest amongst the 37 cars that assembled in the pit area.
 
Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Moore would get out to the early lead though he would soon feel pressure from Rico Abreu. Keeping Abreu at bay, Moore would hang on to the win and move on to both the feature event and the night’s six-lap Dash.
 
With the inversion placing the Levin’s Auto Supply/Garth Moore Insurance/LRB Race Products machine in the fifth row of the Dash, Moore would pick up a couple of spots as a seventh place finish put him in the fourth row for the feature event.
 
The race would get off to a tough start as stoppages were more normal that green flag laps. Running well inside the Top-10 in the early goings of the 40-lap affair. On the 14th lap, Moore would notice something wrong with the steering in the F&F Racing entry, and would bring his machine to a stop.
 
Going to the work area, Moore would not make the call, and his night would come to an end as he was credited with a 17th place finish.
 
“We had a good night going until the feature, and I wanted to badly to have a good run at this race in this car,” Moore said. “Thanks to everyone who made this whole deal possible.”

Tough Go in Petaluma, CA For Mason Moore



Mason Moore and his F&F Racing team had a tough Saturday night in Petaluma, CA. A wild sequence of events through the night would see them persevere and move into the feature event, but Moore’s night would get cut short.
 
“It was just one of those nights you hope you can avoid every season,” Mason Moore said. “We missed the inversion during time trials, but caught up in an accordion style wreck in our heat, snuck out of the, ‘B’, but ended up still making the feature.”
 
49 cars checked into the pit area on Saturday night in scenic Petaluma, CA and Moore would open the fourth round of action up by timing the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Team backed No. x1 entry in fifth fastest in his qualifying group.
 
Lining up fifth in his heat race, a fellow competitors car would not take off coming to green, and Moore would be caught in the middle of the accordion and find himself turned the wrong direction in front of the crowd.
 
With some damage to his machine, Moore would restart from the tail end of the field and a seventh place finish would force him into the 15-lap ‘B’ Main event. Lining up in the seventh starting position in the semi, Moore would need to gain just one position to move on to the 40-lap finale.
 
Things would get interesting in the semi, as mayhem would ensue and the race would see several stoppages. With fuel becoming an issue, Moore would actually come to a stop on the backstretch as officials threw the checkered flag and would be credited with a fifth place finish.
 
Moving into the feature event, Moore would grid the field from the 21st starting position for the 40-lap affair. Getting a couple spots on an early restart, Moore would struggle to get going on the heavy and rough surface.
 
When all was said and done, Moore would end up being credited with a 19th place finish.
 
“It was a tough night, but my guys stayed positive and worked hard,” Moore said. “I am looking forward to piloting this car on Saturday night during the Bradway Memorial. Hopefully we can run well for the Bradway family.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

Copeland Comes Oh-So-Close in Petaluma, CA


Saturday night looked like it just may be the night for Colby Copeland and the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No.x1jr team. Dominating much of the feature event at Petaluma Speedway, a late restart would see Copeland lose the top spot and end up finishing in the second spot.
 
“It was really a good night for our team, and I thought we had that one,” Copeland said. “It felt good to run up front, but I am disappointed we could not close the deal like my team deserved.”
 
A day filled with brilliant sunshine and warm temperatures, Copeland would open round four of Sprint Car Challenge Tour action up by timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/CRV Carbon Solutions backed No. x1jr entry in second fastest in his qualifying group.
 
On a tricky surface in heat race action, the Roseville, CA product would finish in the fourth spot, which transferred him into the feature event. Based on his overall qualifying time, Copeland would also earn a spot in the night’s Dash.
 
Scheduled to start in the second row, Copeland would move up to the front row after the driver in front of him was penalized for a false start. Finishing second in the shootout, Copeland would line up on the front row of the 40-lap feature event.
 
Having success at Petaluma Speedway in previous years, Copeland would mash the throttle when the green was displayed to the field and jump out to the early lead. Out in front, Copeland put on a clinic on the rough and tumble Petaluma gumbo.
 
Finding traffic early and often, Copeland would feel pressure from Willie Croft at times, but was able to keep his biggest threat at bay.
 
On the 33rd lap, Copeland would get tight on the exit of turn four, and it would result in him bobbling enough to let Croft squeeze by and take over the top spot. Copeland was not having it though, as he would answer the call on the 35th lap and reassume the race lead.
 
Taking the white flag in the race lead, Copeland’s biggest fear on this night would come to fruition, as the yellow lights would flicker as he came down the back stretch.
 
Lining up in double file formation for a green-white-checkered finish, Copeland would see Croft get the jump on him when the race resumed, and he would now be in the second spot. Trying to get back around Croft on the final lap, Copeland would come up short and end his night in the second spot.
“We had a car that was good enough to win, but circumstances late changed the race a little bit, and we came up short,” Copeland added. “These guys have gotten this car better and better each night out, and it has me really excited for Stockton Dirt Track in a few weeks.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: F&F Racing and Colby Copeland will be in action with the SCCT when the series resumes on May 27th in Stockton, CA.

Colby Copeland Cracks Top-5



A two race weekend for Colby Copeland and F&F Racing saw the Roseville, CA driver record an 11th place finish on Friday night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour in Tulare, CA before picking up a fourth place finish on Saturday night in Placerville, CA aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No. x1jr.
 
“The more seat time with these guys is doing nothing but helping us,” Copeland said. “It was a pretty good weekend with us getting our first Top-Five together.”
 
Friday night in Tulare, CA Copeland would kick his night off by timing the Econo Lube-N-Tune & Brakes/CRV Carbon Solutions entry in third fastest in his qualifying group.
 
By the strength of his time, Copeland would line up on the front row of his heat race, which he would win, and earn a spot in both the feature event and the night’s Pole Shuffle.
 
Losing to Rico Abreu in his first round of action in the shuffle, Copeland would line up 10th in the 35-lap feature event. On an extremely slicked off Thunderbowl Raceway, Copeland would spend much of the night battling for a spot in the Top-10.
 
Racing with Willie Croft, Tony Gualda, and Mason Moore at times during the 35-lap affair, Copeland would take the checkered flag with an 11th place finish.
 
Making the long tow back to Placerville Speedway to take part in Saturday night’s weekly opener at the track, Copeland would time the F&F Racing entry in fourth fastest amongst the 20-cars checked into the pit area.
 
Finishing third in his heat race, Copeland would move into the nightly redraw where the six pill would place him in the third row for the 25-lap feature event.
 
On an uncharacteristically heavy and rough Placerville Speedway racing surface, Copeland would move forward in the opening laps as he found himself chasing after Greg DeCaires and Steven Tiner who raced hard in front of him.
 
While the drivers in front of him battled for second, Copeland sat in the cat birds seats waiting for an opening. Though he would try to get on the podium in the race’s closing laps, Copeland would take the checkered flag with a fourth place finish.
 
“I have to thank these guys for busting their butts and making the long haul up from Tulare, CA and racing Saturday night,” Copeland added. “Looking forward to another race this weekend.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.

Moore and F&F Racing Hard Charge at Peter Murphy Classic



Following the Sprint Car Challenge Tour to Tulare, CA on Friday night, Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team would have a long night that ultimately saw Moore earn Hard Charger honors as he finished in the eighth spot.
 
“We didn’t get out of our heat race, and with this series that makes for a pretty long night,” Mason Moore said. “Luckily, my guys really gave me a good car and we were able to move forward in both the ‘B’ and the ‘A’.”
 
Timing the Geico Local Office/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Tea backed No. x1 machine in sixth fastest in his qualifying group, the Princeton, CA wheelman would line up in the third row of his heat race.
 
Finishing sixth in his heat, Moore would be relegated to the Finley Farms ‘B’ main, where he would line up in the 11th starting position.
 
Getting off to a great start, Moore would forge his way forward in the second spot in just three laps, as he looked to safely make his way into the Peter Murphy Classic feature event.
 
Falling back one spot on a late restart, Moore would hang on to finish third, and keep the F&F Racing team’s night alive.
 
Gridding the field from the ninth row, Moore would again work his way forward in a stout feature event. With the field using the bottom of the track in the race’s first 11 laps, Moore would get busy as the competition fanned out after the race’s first stoppage.
 
Able to make up ground on the Thunderbowl Raceway, Moore would cap his night off by finishing eighth and earning Hard Charger honors.
 
“This car has been fast all year, and it’s good to get another Top-10 with this series early in the year,” Moore said. “We will look to be even better when we get to Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

“It was a pretty decent night overall,” Colby Copeland said. “I felt good all night, and it was a good second showing for us.”
 
Kicking his night of in qualifying time trials, the Roseville, CA wheelman would time the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/CRV Carbon Solutions backed sprinter in second fastest in his qualifying group.
 
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Copeland would finish third and transfer to the feature event, and with a little luck on his side would also earn a spot in the Dash based on his qualifying time.
 
With his car not coming to life in the Dash, Copeland would be credited with a sixth place finish and grid the field from the sixth row in the 40-lap feature event.
 
Abel to get the issue rectified, Copeland would make the call for the feature event on the extremely slicked off racing surface. Struggling to make grip the feature event, Copeland would do what he could amidst some extremely hard fought battles on the track.
 
Racing with drivers like Sean Becker, Mitchell Faccinto, and Chase Majdic, Copeland would spend much of the night battling for a spot inside the Top-10.
 
As the race moved on and track continued to slick off, Copeland would lose a little ground to his competitors as he ended up finishing in the 13th spot.
 
“We are going in the right direction, and it was a much better night for us than Antioch was,” Copeland added. “ I have to thank all these guys for working hard, and hopefully we can continue to run well Friday.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: F&F Racing will return to action with Copeland on Friday night in Tulare, CA during the Peter Murphy Classic.

Mason Moore Finishes Seventh in Second Challenge Tour Event


After surviving the first ever Sprint Car Challenge Tour event two weeks ago, Mason Moore and F&F Racing were back in action with the series on Saturday night and recorded a seventh place finish.
 
“It was great to get back to Placerville, and race in front of such an awesome crowd,” Mason Moore said. “We had a really good night, and it’s great to get a Top-10 with such a deep field of cars.”
 
Timing the Geico Local Office/Twisted Tea/Levin’s Auto Supply No. x1 machine in second fastest in his time trial group, the Princeton, CA driver would make some moves during his heat race and pick up the important victory.
 
With the win, Moore would advance into one of the night’s twin dashes where a fifth place finish would line him up in the fifth row of the 40-lap feature event. Ax overflowing pit area would lead to an extremely slick ¼ mile racing surface and Moore would take a liking to it.
 
Showing his 2016 championship pedigree on the slick surface, Moore would go to work on the bottom of the speedway as he mixed it up with some of the region’s top drivers.
 
In an action packed feature event, Moore would find himself up as high as the fifth spot during the 40-lapper, and in the blink of an eye would be back as far as the eleventh spot as cars raced side-by side much of the night.
 
The race’s final green flag run of the night would see the reigning track champion settle into the seventh spot where he would go on to finish.
 
“We obviously want to be up front battling for wins, but it’s been a pretty good start to the season with the SCCT, and I think we will continue to get better,” Moore said. “I am looking forward to getting to work in Tulare, CA this weekend with both the SCCT and KWS.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

Colby Copeland’s Debut with F&F Racing Doesn’t Go As Hoped

Taking the reigns to the Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes No. x1 JR for the first time on Saturday night, Colby Copeland gave his a valiant effort to make the first SCCT feature event, but his night would end after a wreck late in the B Main.
 
“We got into a little hole during time trials, and it was just tough to dig out with so many cars on hand,” Copeland said. “I have to thank the F&F Racing team for this opportunity, and hopefully we can improve in a couple of weeks.”
 
Having a suspension issue arise during his qualifying session, the Roseville, CA pilot would end up timing in ninth fastest in his qualifying group which would subsequently line him up ninth in his heat race with only the top-three drivers moving directly to the feature event.
 
From the fifth row, Copeland showed some serious speed on the tricky Antioch Raceway surface, as he seemed to pass cars at will. Copeland would get up to the fourth spot and flirt with the final transfer position only to come up just short at the line.
 
Moving into the ‘B’ main, Copeland would take the field from the 16th starting spot needing to finish within the top-seven to move into the 30-lap feature event. Having a strong Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/CRV Carbon Solutions machine under him, Copeland was able to work his way forward and make a bid for the transfer late in the race.
 
Working on the final transfer spot during the race’s last lap, contact would ensue and result in Copeland taking a wild ride and bringing his night to a disappointing end.
 
“It is rough to wreck anytime, but especially your first night out with a new team,” Copeland added. “It is going to be a fun year with these guys, and I have to thank the companies that make it possible.”
 
Copeland and F&F Racing would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2017.
 
ON TAP: F&F Racing will return to action with Copeland on April 15th in Placerville, CA.

Mason Moore Survives Wild SCCT Opener To Finish 16th

Climbing back aboard the FnF Racing No. X1 machine on Saturday night to kick off the 2017 Sprint Car Challenge Tour campaign, Mason Moore would survive a wild opening night event to finish in the 16th spot.
 
“The track was tricky and there was some guys doing some crazy stuff, so I am just happy we were able to roll it back in the trailer,” Moore said. “The FnF Racing guys gave me a great car, and I am looking forward to really getting our season going now.”
 
Timing the Geico Local Office/Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes/Twisted Tea backed No. x1 machine in seventh fastest in his qualifying group, the Princeton, CA driver would finish eighth in his heat race.
 
Going to overall qualifying times to line up the semi-main, Moore’s time would be good enough to line the Levin’s Auto Supply/Garth Moore Insurance/LRB Race Products entry up in the fifth row of the semi, needing to finish in the Top-Seven to keep his night moving along.
 
Moore would flex his muscle a bit in the ‘B’, as he was able to pick up the necessary spots to transfer to the feature. Finishing sixth, the 2016 Placerville Speedway Champion would gird the field from the 21st starting position.
 
When the green flag waived in the feature event, the gloves seemingly came off for much of the field. With the track tough to pass on, Moore used his patience as he stayed out of the fray on this night.
 
Though it was not the charge from the rear he was hoping for, Moore would take the checkered flag with a 16th place finish.
 
“There was some carnage, and I just kept running a patient race,” Moore said. “It wasn’t the greatest finish in the world, but we will take it and move on to this weekend.”
 
Moore would like to thank Geico, Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Twisted Tea, Levin’s Auto Supply, Garth Moore Insurance, LRB Race Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Sierra Single Ply, Lucas Oil, RPI, and Encore Catering for their support in 2017.

After an extremely successful 2016 season together, Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team opened their 2017 campaign up with a third place finish in Marysville, CA on Saturday night.
 
“We shook down a new car in preparation for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour opener in a couple of weeks, and we were pleased with how we performed,” Mason Moore said. “We would have loved to have been two spots better, but we will continue to try and get better weekly.”
 
 Getting the night kicked off in fine form, Moore would time the Geico/Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Levin’s Auto Supply backed No. x1 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials before racing his way to a second place finish in heat race competition.
 
Pulling the last row in the redraw, Moore would grid the field from the seventh starting spot in the feature event. When the green flag dropped on the main, the Princeton, CA driver would quickly move up into the fifth spot.
 
Running strong on the Marysville Raceway surface, Moore pick up a few more spots as he took over the third position and began battling with Tony Gualda for the runner up spot.
 
Trying everything in his arsenal to get into the second position, Moore just could not clear his competitor and would occupy the final position on the podium when the checkered flag flew on the feature.
 
“I was personally really happy with the feel of our new car,” Moore said. “These guys always give me a good car, and it is nice to know we are right where we left off at the end of last season.”

Moore Charges to Ninth at Cocopah Speedway

Mason Moore made his presence felt with the ASCS National Series over the weekend in Yuma, AZ as he closed his season out with a ninth place finish after lining up in the 18th starting spot.
 
“Saturday night the track was really tricky, and I was able to figure out the bottom and get going,” Moore said. “Our car was really strong and to move through that field the way we did was pretty cool.”
 
Kicking Saturday night off with a tough draw, Moore would line up in the fourth row of his heat race and finish in the seventh spot. Moving into a qualifier, the Princeton, CA driver would again line up in the eighth spot but in this race he would move up to the fourth spot.
 
Not quote having enough points to move into the feature, Moore would be forced into the B Main where he would line up on the pole. Taking care of business from the front row, Moore would pick up the win and move into the 30-lap feature event.
 
Gridding the field from the 18th starting spot, Moore would quickly take a liking to the bottom of the speedway as most drivers were up on the cushion. Able to make the bottom work, Moore would be one of the few who was able to make up ground on this night.
 
Carving his way through a very stout field, Moore would bring his 2016 season to close with a charge up to the ninth spot.
 
Also in action with the ASCS National Series on Friday night, Moore would finish second in his heat race, before picking up a second place finish during his qualifier.
 
Sitting 10th in points, Moore would move into the 25-lap preliminary night feature event where he would take the green flag from the 10th starting position. On a very racy Cocopah Speedway, Moore showed that the F&F Racing machine was strong on this night as he quickly worked up to the seventh spot and began battling with Aaron Reutzel.
 
As the duo battled back and forth, Moore would loop his machine while trying to counter a move but was able to keep it under power. Able to reel the field back in, Moore would get back up to finish in the 12th spot.
 
“I can’t say enough about this F&F Racing team,” Moore said. “We were fast everywhere we went, and had a really nice showing in a National show to close out our year. We had some great partners support us this year, and hopefully we can have a good offseason and come out even better in 2017.”

Mason Moore Caps of Career Year With Civil War Series

Heading into the 2016 Civil War Series season finale very much alive in the championship hunt, Mason Moore would come up just short of his goal but would still cap off a career year with the series with his second place finish in the final standings.
 
“It is a little disappointing to come up short of our goals, but it was a fun battle with Andy Forsberg all year,” Moore said. “Both of our teams were really good all year long, and I congratulate them on another title.”
 
Checking in at the Stockton Dirt Track just 16 points out of the top spot, Moore would open his night up by timing in ninth fastest in his qualifying flight.
 
On a tricky track during heat race action, the Princeton, CA driver pick up a fourth place finish and punch his ticket into the 30-lap Civil War Series season finale. With split qualifying being used on this night, Moore would find himself in the ninth row for the final feature event.
 
Following some brief track prep, things would come to life for one final time. With Forsberg in the third row, Moore knew things would have to his way to pull off the title but he was giving it all he had.
 
Though the track was narrow for most of the race, Moore was able to get a couple of spots in the early stages of the race. Running in 15th when the first caution flew, Moore would try to use the next two restarts to gain positions but he was unable to do so as he continued to run 15th.
 
Able to get another position before the race came to a close, Moore would end his night with a 14th place finish.
 
“Saturday night wasn’t how we hoped to end the Civil War season, but it is how it goes sometimes,” Moore added. “We still have another weekend to race, so we are hoping to have a good showing in AZ.”

Disappointing Trip To Chico For Mason Moore



Making one final start at his home track, the Silver Dollar Speedway, for the season, Mason Moore was disappointed with how things ended up for his F&F Racing team.
 
“It was kind of a bummer weekend for us,” Moore said. “We were running fourth on Friday and were forced to make a stop in the work area, and on Saturday we got collected in a couple of altercations.”
 
Opening the Fall Nationals up on Friday night, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products No. X1 machine in 12th fastest before picking up a win during heat race competition.
 
The win propelled Moore and company into the night’s Dash where a fifth place finish would line the Princeton, CA native up in the third row of the feature event.
 
Taking the green flag from the third row, Moore would battle with the likes of Dominic Scelzi and Greg DeCaires until he was forced into the work area during a lap five caution.
 
Making repairs, Moore was able to restart but just was unable to get going forward as he would settle for a 17th place finish.
 
Returning to action on Saturday night, Moore would time in eighth fastest of the 26 guys that took time in his qualifying flight. Taking the green flag from the fourth starting spot in his heat, Moore’s fifth place finish would send him into the 40-lap Fall Nationals feature event.
 
Lining up in the 20th spot, the back of the pack was not where you wanted to be. Getting involved in a couple of incidents, Moore’s night would come to an early end as he was credited with a 19th place finish.
 
“It certainly wasn’t what we had hoped for going back to my home track,” Moore added. “We will take a weekend off and gear up for the big Placerville Shootout next weekend.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Sixth at Marysville Raceway

Amidst an extremely tight point race for the Civil War Series championship, Mason Moore would finish in the sixth spot at the Marysville Raceway on Saturday night, as the battle stays tight with just two races to go.
 
“We lost some points on Saturday night, but we still have two races to make up ground,” Moore said. “It was a tough track on Saturday night but we made do with what we had and finished sixth.”
 
Timing the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products No. x1 in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials, Moore would proceed to win his heat race and move on into the nightly Dash.
 
With the pill draw not playing nice, Moore would pull the seven pill and the Princeton, CA pilot would line up in the last row of the six-lap shootout. On the hooked up and fast surface, Moore would finish in the seventh spot, placing him in the fourth row for the 30-lap finale.
 
As the night went on the track would continue to stay too good, and the feature event would not allow many guys to work their way forward. With most of the Top-Five running the same torrid pace, Moore would pick up a couple of spots as he ran in the sixth spot.
 
Lap 29 would see the yellow flag waive and put the field nose to tail for a final two-lap shootout to the finish. Trying to break into the Top-Five in the final laps, Moore would be unsuccessful as he would take the Ed Entz checkered flag with a sixth place finish.
 
“I have to thank the guys for working hard for me and giving us a great car for the feature,” Moore added. “We will now look forward to Petaluma and do all we can to get this F&F Racing car into victory lane.”

Moore Hangs In Civil War Points Battle; Pleased With Gold Cup Showing


Though commitments kept him away from the Gold Cup Race of Champions finale on Saturday night, Mason Moore was still in action on Wednesday night and Friday night and looking back at the week, Moore was pleased with how both teams performed.
 
“After an eighth place finish during a rubber down Civil War event, I was happy to run well with the World of Outlaws and line up on the pole of the feature event,” Moore said. “I made a couple of mistakes, and then some contact finished us off, but I was proud of our showing.”
 
In the midst of an extremely close Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster championship battle, Moore and the Friends and Family Racing team came out strong Wednesday night. Timing in third fastest in their qualifying flight, Moore would pick up a third place finish in his heat race and work his way into the Dash.
 
Pulling the seven pill in the redraw, Moore would work his way up to a fifth place finish which is where he would line up for the 30-lap feature event. With rubber down on the track prior to the green flag, the start of the race would be critical, and Moore would acknowledge he didn’t get off to the best start.
 
Running in the seventh spot, passing on the rubber down track was just not happening. Hoping to save his tires until the end of the feature event and get out with no issues, Moore would feel his right rear tire going down late in the race.
 
Able to hang on until the end, Moore would lose a position as he finished in the eighth spot, just two spots behind series point leader, Andy Forsberg.
 
Climbing aboard the Mason Moore Racing entry for Friday night’s World of Outlaws event, Moore would get off to a great start as he timed in second fastest during his qualifying flight.
 
Picking up the heat race win from his front row starting position, Moore would find himself on the front row of the Dash. Getting the best of Joey Saldana in the Dash, the Princeton, CA driver would find himself on the front row of the Gold Cup Race of Champions opening night feature event.
 
When the race came to life, Moore would make a couple of mistakes that saw him drift back inside the Top-Five. As the race went on, contact front another car would destroy his left rear and get him into the front stretch wall.
 
Able to make repairs, Moore’s promising night would end with an 18th place finish.
“Friday night ended with some disappointed, but it was great to show our stuff at our home track,” Moore said. “Thanks to the guys who help both teams for a good showing at Gold Cup.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Claims First Career Placerville Speedway Track Title

Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway, Mason Moore capped of an impressive regular season at the ¼ mile speedway as a second place finish in the feature event netted him his first career Placerville Speedway Track Championship.
 
“I’m excited to win my first career championship,” Moore said. “This team gave me a great car every week, and our consistency was definitely rewarded.”
 
Saturday night, Moore would open his night up by timing the Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products/NAAKE Suspension backed No. x1 machine in third fastest.
 
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Princeton, CA native would finish in the fourth spot and earn a spot in the redraw fro the final point race of the season at the Placerville Speedway.
 
Pulling the three pill, Moore would line up in the second row of the 25-lap feature event. Getting into the second spot, Moore would find himself battling with 2015 track champ, Greg DeCaires. With the duo continuing to fight hard, Moore would continue to run in the third spot until making his move into the second spot late in the feature event.
 
Once in second, race leader Andy Forsberg had built up a comfortable lead, and Moore would hang on to finish in the second spot and celebrate his first track title.
 
Moore was also in action on Friday night as he climbed aboard his Mason Moore Racing entry and checked in at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA for one final tune up before the Gold Cup Race of Champions.
 
Timing the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office No. 22 machine in third quick, Moore would pocket a fourth place finish in his heat race.
 
Finding himself on the front row of the feature event following the redraw, Moore would fall to the second spot as he chased after the early leader, Sean Becker.
 
Holding down the second spot, Moore would see Bud Kaeding and Kyle Hirst both get by him as he would fall back to the fourth spot as he found himself battling amidst some stiff competition.
 
Running in the fourth spot, a wild finish would see Sean Becker get out of shape in front of Moore, and as he took evasive action DJ Netto would get by him. Though he would lose a spot to Netto, Moore would get by Becker and bring home a fourth place finish.
 
“It has really been a great season in both cars,” Moore said. “With us still chasing the Civil War Championship, we still have some big races ahead so we will continue to work hard and finish this season out strong in both cars.”

Moore’s 11th Place Finish With Civil War Series Tightens Screws On Championship Chase


On the verge of claiming the Placerville Speedway track championship this coming weekend, Mason Moore made the most of last Saturday night’s Civil War Series event as an 11th place finish was good enough to make an already close point battle even closer with just a few races left on the schedule.
 
“We finished eleventh, but we were much better than that,” Mason Moore stated. “We were running in the Top-Five when we had a little help spinning around with only 10-laps left in the race, but we were able to make up as much ground as we could and made up some ground in the big picture.”
 
Needing to race his way into Johnny Key Classic against 33 other drivers going after 18 spots, Moore would get off to a nice start as he timed the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office fourth fastest.
 
Saturday night’s heat races would be lined up straight off of qualifying times meaning Moore would find himself on the pole of the fourth heat, needing to grab a win to move into the Dash for Cash.
 
An entertaining opening two laps with Willie Croft would see Moore settle into the second spot, and while he would not grab the win he would earn a transfer spot into the 50-lap A Main event.
 
“We had a good battle for the heat win, but in a 50-lap race, it was just important for us to get into the feature,” Moore added.
 
Lining the LRB Race Products/Lucas Oil/Moore Insurance Services No. x1 machine up in the sixth row, Moore would hang around the 11th spot as he was patient during much of the first 25-lap segment on this night.
 
Working up into the ninth spot by the halfway stoppage, Moore would continue to turn it on as the laps clicked away. Working his way into the fifth spot with just 10-laps left in the race, contact from another driver would send Moore’s machine spinning into the infield.
 
Restarting from the back of the pack, Moore would work his way forward to pick up a few positions during the final 10-laps as he would get back to finish in the 11th spot.
 
Friday night, Moore was in action at the Silver Dollar Speedway aboard the Mason Moore Racing No. 22 machine for the Tyler Wolf Memorial.
 
Earning quick time honors, the Princeton, CA driver would finish third during his heat race and earn a spot in the Top-Eight redraw.
 
Pulling the two pill, Moore would settle into the second spot as things came alive. On a track that stayed pretty tacky for much of the night, Moore would slip back to fourth during the fast paced feature event.
 
Able to work his way back into the third spot, Moore would pressure Chase Majdic for the second spot, but would take the checkered flag with a third place finish.
 
“Overall it was a pretty good weekend for us,” Moore said. “I have to thank my guys on both teams for their hard work, and hopefully we can be even better in both cars this weekend.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Third Place Finish Extends Mason Moore’s Placerville Speedway Point Lead


Mason Moore has been a model of consistency at the Placerville Speedway in 2016, and that stayed true on Saturday night as the Princeton, CA driver picked up a third place finish and extended his season long points lead in the process.
 
“Saturday night was another great night for the F&F Racing team at Placerville Speedway,” Mason Moore said. “We led some laps early, but ended up running third and extending our point lead with our performance.”
 
Timing the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products No. x1 in eight fastest, Moore would pick up a second place finish in his heat race and make himself eligible for the Top-Eight redraw.
 
Pulling the four pill, Moore would take the initial green flag from the second row, but with the original front row starter jumping, Moore would find himself starting in the second spot.
 
Battling with Jake Morgan on the opening lap, Moore would win the battle and lead the opening stages of the feature event. Feeling pressure from Andy Forsberg on the fifth lap, Moore would fend him off for the time being before falling to second on the next circuit.
 
Keeping Forsberg in his sights, Moore would soon feel pressure from Sean Becker who was beautifully working the high, scary side of the speedway. Still running second, a late restart would stack the leaders on top of each other and Moore would see Becker overtake him for the top spot.
 
Giving a late effort to reclaim the position, Moore would hold on to capture his third consecutive podium finish at the high-banked ¼ mile facility.
 
“To run up front like that you would hope to win, but to run third to Andy Forsberg and Sean Becker is nothing to be ashamed about,” Moore said. “I want to thank my guys and our partners for continuing their hard work to keep us strong nightly. Next week is a big week of racing and hopefully both teams can run well.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Third at Mark Forni Classic; Inches Toward Civil War Series Point Lead


Continuing to chase after Andy Forsberg in Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster point standings, Mason Moore inched a little closer on Saturday night as he would finish third during the 11th Annual Mark Forni Classic.
 
“We didn’t get timed in well, but we took care of business in our heat race and that got us in the Dash, and put us in a great spot for the feature event,” Mason Moore said.
 
Timing the Geico Local Office/Econo Lube and Tune/LRB Race Products entry in 12th quickest in qualifying time trials, the Princeton, CA driver would pick up the win in his heat race and qualify for the Dash.
 
Pulling the three pill in the redraw, Moore would finish second to Kyle Hirst and put his F&F Racing entry on the front row for the 30-lap Mark Forni Classic feature event.
 
When the race came to life, Moore would slip to the third spot as Sean Becker raced by him in the opening laps of the feature event. On an extremely slick and technical speedway, Moore would find himself in a torrid battle with Andy Forsberg as they tussled for the third spot.
 
Racing wheel-to-wheel, the duo would put on a show as they seemingly exchanged the spot lap after lap. With Moore working the low side of the speedway, he would get under Forsberg who ran the top, but Forsberg would use the momentum to get Moore back as they played an entertaining game of cat and mouse.
 
In the closing laps, Moore would made a move to get by Forsberg and take over the third spot for good. With the Civil War season starting to wind down, points are valuable and the finish would let Moore inch closer to the point lead.
 
“It seems like the 7c and us and been right with each other the last few weeks, and it is good to finish in front of them,” Moore said. “It is a tight, and exciting battle so hopefully we can continue to this battle through the year. My guys gave me a great car, and it was awesome to get on the podium.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Scores 4th Win Of 2016


Mason Moore continued his strong 2016 campaign at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night as he charged from the fourth row to claim his fourth overall win of the 2016 season, and his third with the F&F Racing team at the high banked ¼ mile.
 
“It was a really fun track to race on Saturday night, and I have to thank Alan Bradway, Tooch, and all the guys for giving me a car that was good enough to win from the seventh starting spot,” Mason Moore said.
 
Getting his night off to a great start, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products backed No. x1 machine in second fastest, putting him in the second row of the second heat race.
 
Working his way forward on the famed red clay surface, Moore would finish in the second spot and solidify his spot in the nightly redraw. To his dismay, Moore would pull the seven pill on this night, which placed the Lucas Oil/CRV/Moore Insurance Services entry in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.
 
On the slick Placerville Speedway surface, Moore would shine as he quickly raced his way up into the fourth spot. With the beefy cushion built up all around the speedway, the surface would allow for great side-by-side action. Falling back to fifth at point, Moore would reclaim the fourth spot as the yellow flag flew with eight laps to go.
 
Getting by Sean Becker on the restart to take over the third spot, Moore would dive to the bottom of the speedway to get past Greg DeCaires for the second spot. Chasing after Andy Gregg, Moore would get by the leader out of turn four on the 19th lap and never look back.
 
Glued to the bottom of the speedway for the final five laps, Moore would pick up his third win of the season at the track, and extend his season long points lead.
 
“I was pretty good on the top early in the race, and I saw a couple of guys using the bottom, so knew it was down there if I needed it,” Moore added. “We had a good run through the field, and I am really happy we were able to get this F&F Racing entry back in victory lane!”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Mason Moore Records Two More Top-10 Finishes



Princeton, CA driver Mason Moore had another consistent weekend with his Friends and Family Racing team that saw him score two more Top-10 finishes as he chases points with both the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster and the Placerville Speedway.
 
“It was a decent weekend for us,” Mason Moore said. “I thought we had good speed in both feature events, and we were able to come through the field a little bit to pick up a couple of Top-10’s.”
 
Traveling to the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA on Friday night to take part in the Civil War Series’ sixth event of the 2016 season, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products No x1 machine in 10th fastest.
 
Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Moore would pick up a second place finish, which locked him into the feature event, but would come up short of a Dash berth.
 
Gridding the field from the sixth row for the 30-lap feature event, Moore would get off to a slow start as he would find himself as far back as the 15th position in the running order. On a surface that seemed to get more racy as the laps clicked off, Moore patiently worked his way forward as he raced much of the night with Andy Forsberg.
 
Taking advantage of some double file restarts, Moore would bring his night to an end with a ninth place finish.
 
Making the long drive back to the Placerville Speedway for Saturday night’s race, Moore would lay down a great lap in qualifying time trials that saw him end up third on the speed chart.
 
With a driver making a false start ahead of him in heat race action, Moore would move up to the front row and race his way to the win. Moving into the feature event redraw, Moore would pull the six pill and line up in the third row for the 25-lap ‘A’ Main. Getting into the third spot, Moore would get out of shape and slip back to the seventh position.
 
Still running in the seventh spot on a restart, contact with another car would send Moore’s machine around and he would be relegated to the back of the pack. From deep in the field, Moore would remain calm as he worked his way forward just as he did the night before.
 
Getting back inside the Top-10, Moore would close this night with a seventh place finish.
 
“When a tough weekend is two Top-10 finishes, that just shows the kind of season you are having,” Moore added. “These guys work hard for me and give me a great car each and every night.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.
 
ON TAP: Moore will be back in action on Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway.

Mason Moore Has Strong Weekend In Northern California

Mason Moore had a very strong weekend during two nights of action that saw him win at the Silver Dollar Speedway in the Mason Moore Racing No. 22 machine, and charge from 16th to finish third at the Placerville Speedway in the Friends and Family Racing No. x1 machine.
 
“What a weekend,” Moore said. “It was great to get a win in the family car on Friday night, and after a minor hiccup before the feature on Saturday night it was a blast to come through the field.”
 
Checking in at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night aboard the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office No. 22 machine, Moore would time in second fastest before finishing third in his heat race.
 
With lady luck on his side, Moore would find himself with the one pill and one the pole for the 25-lap feature event. Falling into the second spot when the race went green, Moore would find himself chasing after Kalib Henry who ran up front early.
 
Racing wheel-to-wheel with Henry, Moore would take the lead just before a caution flew, and would find himself up front with a clear track ahead of him. When the action resumed, Moore would set sail and race to his third feature event win of the 2016 season.
 
Heading to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, the Princeton, CA driver would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/Moore Insurance Services backed No. x1 machine in third fastest before finishing third in his heat race.
 
Drawing the three pill for the feature event, Moore would find himself in the third starting spot for the 25-lap feature event. When it came time to push, Moore’s machine would not fire. Heading to the work area to rectify the problem, the crew couldn’t visibly see anything wrong.
 
Trying one final time to fire, Moore would have a little more luck on his side as his machine came to life and he tagged the back of field. On a very racy Placerville Speedway, Moore put on a show as he looked to rebound from his early bad luck.
 
Fighting through thick traffic for much of the race, Moore would turn in a strong showing that saw him charge from 16th to finish in the third spot.
 
“It was a really good weekend for both teams, and that is a huge credit to how hard both crews work,” Moore said. “It was awesome to win in Chico for the first time in a few years. We had a good car on Saturday, and I think that showed with how we came through the field.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Rebounds With Pair of Top-10’s In Placerville, CA




One week after seeing a very good night go south at the Placerville Speedway, Mason Moore and his F&F Racing team would bounce back with two Top-10 finishes over a busy holiday weekend.
 
“We have been really good at Placerville all year long, and it was good to come back and have two good races after a tough one last weekend,” Mason Moore said. “We battled in the Top-Five both nights, and just missed out on two Top-Five finishes.”
 
An extremely slick Placerville Speedway greeted drivers on Saturday night, and Moore would find a little speed on the slick surface early as he timed the Geico Local Office/Econo Lube and Tune/LRB Race Products No. x1 machine in fourth fastest.
 
Picking up a third place finish in his heat race, Moore would run in the Top-Five for much of the race on an extremely slick Placerville Speedway surface. Battling with the likes of Michael Kofoid and Greg Decaires for much of the race, the Placerville Speedway point leader looked to be solidly in the top-five.
 
Falling out of the Top-Five late in the program, Moore would sneak by Chase Johnson late to finish in the fifth spot.
 
Returning to action on Monday night, Moore would time in fifth fastest in qualifying time trials before again finishing third in his heat race.
 
Moore would advance into the Top-Eight redraw where the four pill would line him up in the second row of the 25-lap A Main event. On a surface that held moisture for much of the night, Moore would get up as high as the third spot during the course of the night, but a few restarts would hamper him as the night went on.
 
Trying to maintain his position inside the Top-Five a late move by Ryan Bernal would see Moore take the checkered flag with a sixth place finish.
 
“This team has been awesome night it and night out, and I am glad to be a part of it,” Moore added. “We have been extremely consistent, and hopefully we can continue that this weekend.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, ITC Service Group, Saureel, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Moore Third With Civil War Series; Tightens Up Points Chase

Turning in a third place finish with the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster on Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Mason Moore closed in on series point leader, Andy Forsberg, and cut his point lead to just 10 digit as the series heads to the Petaluma Speedway this weekend.
 
“It was a really solid weekend for both teams,” Moore said. “We finally had an event free night at the Silver Dollar Speedway, and on Saturday night we had another good run at Placerville Speedway and the Civil War Series.”
 
Going out late in qualifying time trials on an extremely slick surface Saturday night, Moore timed the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 machine in 15th fastest before a win during his heat race placed him in the nightly Dash.
 
Pulling the eighth pill in the Dash, Moore would finish in the seventh spot, which placed him inside row number four for the 30-lap A Main event. The slick racing surface was ideal for drivers to slide around the speedway, and Moore would do just that as he battled with Andy Forsberg and Colby Copeland.
 
Working his way up into the third spot, Moore would look for more during the race’s final restart on lap 27, but would close his night out with a third place finish.
 
“We have been strong at the Placerville Speedway, and to run second and final keep the 7c behind us in a Civil War show was a really good night for us,” Moore said. “We will be back at it again with the Civil War Series this weekend, and hopefully continue to finish on the podium.”
 
Friday night, Moore and the Mason Moore Racing team were in action at the Silver Dollar Speedway looking to shake some of their bad luck off.
 
Timing the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office No. 22 machine in fifth fastest in time trials, the Princeton, CA driver would finish in the second spot of his heat race.

 
Lining up on the pole of the feature event, Moore would slip back to the fourth spot as he raced with Andy Forsberg, and Jonathan Allard during the course of the race, as Sean Becker was able to check out.
 
“For whatever reason, we have just seemed to have bad luck all year on the 22 car, but Friday night we were finally able to focus on racing, and not deal with any issues,” Moore added. “We slipped back to fourth from the front row, but I think that about as good as the car and driver were.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Mason Moore Dominates at Placerville Speedway For Second Win Of 2016


Teaming back up with the F&F Racing team in 2016 has been good thus far for Mason Moore, as the Princeton, CA driver picked up his second win of the season at the Placerville Speedway and extended his commanding point lead.
 
“I really have to thank the family that drew the number two pill for me tonight, because with the way the track was it was beneficial to start up front,” Moore said.
 
Timing the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products No. x1 machine in third fastest before picking up the win during his heat race. With the two pill being drawn for him for his feature event starting position, Moore would line up on the outside of the front row alongside Sean Conde.
 
With the first five laps of the race being hampered by stoppages, Moore would not let if mess with his rhythm as he took the lead early, and kept the field at bay during a pair of restarts.
 
Out in front on the hooked up Placerville Speedway, Moore would spend most of the night with a sizeable lead as he carved his way through traffic on the high-banked ¼ mile speedway.
 
In the closing laps of the race, Moore would see his lead shrink up in traffic as Steven Tiner began tracking him down. Staying committed to the low side of the speedway, Moore remained calm, an finally cleared a lapped car that would essentially seal the win for him.
 
Friday night, Moore was with his Mason Moore Racing team for a night of racing action at the Silver Dollar Speedway. Timing the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico backed No. 22 machine in fifth fastest in time trials, Moore would finish fourth during his heat race.
 
Pulling the five pill, Moore would line the Moore Insurance Services/LRB Race Products/NAAKE backed No. 22 machine up in the third row for the 25 lap A main event.

 
Having a long night in the feature event, Moore just didn’t have a car that could get moving forward as he faded deeper in the Top-10 as the laps clicked off. Able to settle in, Moore would end his night with a ninth place finish.
 
“We struggled a little bit on Friday night in the feature, but we were still able to hang in the Top-10,” Moore said. “Saturday night was a really good night for our team, and it was great to get a win.

Consistency Continues For Mason Moore


Two nights of racing for Mason Moore and the F&F Racing team saw more consistency from the team as the driver from Princeton, CA picked up finishes of third and fourth place with the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster.
 
“This Friends and Family Racing team as been really strong all year long, and we continued to have really good speed this weekend during two pretty tough shows,” Mason Moore quipped.
 
Taking part in the 17th Annual Mel Hall Memorial on Saturday night at the Marysville Raceway, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Loval Office/LRB Race Products machine in sixth quickest amongst the 39 cars taking a time.
 
Finishing third during his heat race, Moore would just miss out on a Dash spot, and would line the potent No. x1 machine up in the fifth row for the 30-lap A Main event. On a track that provided some exciting action while the leaders were in traffic, Moore was able to work his way toward the top five, where he spent much of the race.
 
Battling with Jonathan Allard and Colby Wiesz late in the race, Moore would take the Ed Entz checkered flag with a fourth place finish.
 
Heading to his home track, the Silver Dollar Speedway, on Saturday night, Moore would earn quick times during his qualifying flight with 51 cars checked into the pit area.
 
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Moore’s second place finish would put him in the six lap dash, which set the fir four rows of the 30-lap feature. Lining up on the front row, Moore would have a tough go as his fifth place finish placed him in the third row for the feature.
 
On an extremely slick track, Moore pedaled his car nicely in the opening stages as he hung in the Top-Five battling with Steven Tiner and again, Jonathan Allard.

 
Able to work his way into the third spot as the track began to take rubber, Moore would keep the tires under him in the final stage of the race as he closed his weekend out with a third place finish.

Moore Fourth During Soggy Night at Placerville Speedway



With the track crew working feverishly to get the Saturday night’s event at the Placerville Speedway in despite persistent rains, Mason Moore and his F&F Racing team would turn in a good night’s work as the Princeton, CA driver picked up a fourth place finish.
 
“It was really hooked up and fast on Saturday night, and I was hoping to just pick up a couple of spots and not do anything to crazy with the conditions,” Moore said. “Luckily some things went our way, and we had a really fast racecar that allowed us to move up and finish in the fourth spot.”
 
Timing the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/LRB Race Products entry in second fastest in time trials, Moore would earn a third place finsh in his heat race and solidify his place in the nightly redraw.
 
With luck not quite on his side on this night, Moore would find himself with the eight pill, and starting in the fourth row on an extremely hooked up racing surface on a damp night in Placerville, CA.
 
Driving a very patient race, Moore was able to get by Matt Peterson and Logan Seavey in the first few laps as he worked up into the sixth spot. Giving chase to Jonathan Allard, Moore would take advantage of a bobble to move into the fifth spot as the laps clicked down.
 
Holding on to take the checkered flag in the fifth spot, Moore would officially be scored fourth as a driver failed to stop at the scales post race, and Moore moved up another spot.

 
“It was a good night overall for this team, and it was another good points night for us,” Moore said. “It is still early to think about points, but obviously it is a good thing to get off to a nice start. This team has been so much fun to drive for, and hopefully we can keep running well.”

Mason Moore Picks Up First Win of 2016

Mason Moore and his F&F Racing Team had a great night at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night that saw the Princeton, CA driver pick up his first win of the 2016 season.
 
“It was a great night on Saturday with the F&F Racing team,’ Moore said. “We put ourselves in a great spot all night, and when the weird night came to an end, we were standing on the front stretch.”
 
Timing the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office/Moore Insurance Services No. x1 machine in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials, Moore would then finish second in his heat race putting him in the all important nightly redraw.
 
Finding himself with the two-pill, Moore would line up on the front row of the 25-lap feature event. When the green flag waived on the feature, Moore was hard on the throttle as he jumped out into the early lead.
 
Out in front, Moore would drive a masterful race on a track that had built up a thick cushion all the way around the speedway. With the likes of Matt Peterson and Logan Seavey knocking at the door during the race, Moore would have none of it as he fended off all advances and claimed his first win of the 2016 season.
 
Friday night, Moore was also in action at the Silver Dollar Speedway aboard his Mason Moore Racing No. 22 machine.
 
Timing the Coors Light/LRB Race Products/NAAKE Suspension backed entry in third fastest, Moore would battle a brake issue during his heat race though would still manage to finish in the fourth spot.
 

Going to work in the pit area, Moore’s team worked feverishly to rectify the brake situation, but unfortunately they could not get brakes on Moore’s machine even after putting a new system in.
 
With faulty brakes, Moore would opt to take the green flag in the feature event and pull his machine back to his trailer and call it an early night.
 
“It was an up and down weekend, but it was really cool to win with the F&F Racing team,” Moore said. “We had really good speed all night, and we are off to a nice start at Placerville. Friday night we had really good speed too, but something went haywire with our brakes and it made sense to park the car rather than risk tearing ourselves or somebody else up.”
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, Lucas Oil, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

Mason Moore Races To Two Top-10's Including Second Place Effort at Placerville Speedway

In action on both Friday and Saturday night, Mason Moore would finish in the seventh spot at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night before picking up an exciting second place finish on Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway.
 
“It was a really good weekend in both cars,” Moore said. “Friday night in the Mason Moore Racing No. 22 we were okay and finished in the seventh spot, and Saturday night we were really good in the F&F Racing No. x1 machine and were able to finish in the second spot.”
 
Timing the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office backed No. 22 machine in eighth fastest on Friday night, Moore would take care of business in his heat race as he picked up the win and moved into the Top-Eight redraw.
 
On an extremely tacky and hooked up surface, Moore would take the green flag from the sixth spot. Moving into the fifth position, Moore would chase after Brad Bumgarner who ran just ahead of him.
 
On a surface that put on an exhibition of raw speed, the only way to gain or lose positions would be due to a mistake. Moore would admittedly do just that and concede the fifth spot to Bobby McMahan just before he guessed wrong in lapped traffic and falling back to seventh as Andy Forsberg got by.
 
Climbing aboard the Friends and Family Racing No. x1 machine on Saturday night, Moore would get his night off to a great start as he earned quick time honors during qualifying time trials.
 
Moving to the front row of his heat race after a fellow competitor was penalized, Moore would take full advantage of the starting position and pick up the win and move directly into the feature event.
 
By way of a pill draw, the Princeton, CA driver would line his machine up in the third row for the 25-lapper. Working the bottom of the speedway to perfection, Moore would work his way up to the third spot as he set his sights on Rico Abreu and Jonathan Allard who led the way.
 
A late restart would bunch the field up, and Moore would get into second as he got by Allard, but was unable to get to Abreu and closed his weekend out with a second place finish.
 
“It was really great to end our weekend with a second place finish,” Moore said. “We had an awesome car and we were able to move forward on what was kind of a tough track. I have to thank everyone who works on and supports both teams for all that they do.”
 
 
Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.
 
ON TAP: Moore will return to the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night before taking on the King of the West Series on Saturday back at the Placerville Speedway.

Mason Moore Picks Up Top Five Finishes at Silver Dollar Speedway and Placerville Speedway


Competing in a pair of 360ci races over the weekend, Mason Moore piloted his Mason Moore Racing No. 22 machine to a fifth place finish on Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway before climbing back aboard the F&F Racing No. x1 machine on Saturday night and finishing fifth during the Placerville Speedway’s regular season opener. 

“We are making progress in both cars, and it is showing with our finishes,” Moore said. “We picked up a couple of Top-10’s two weekends ago, and this weekend it is two Top-Fives.”

 

Taking part in the Mini Gold Cup opener on Friday night at his home track, the Silver Dollar Speedway, Moore timed the Coors Light/Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office No. 22 machine in fastest during qualifications before racing his way to a second place finish during his heat race.

 

Qualifying for the nightly redraw, Moore would pull the six pill which lined his machine up in the third row of the 25-lap feature event on a surface that stayed almost too good on this night.

 

With passing at a premium on Friday night, Moore did what he could to pick up positions, though he was able to crack the Top-Five. The extremely fast track conditions made all drivers quick on this night, and the Princeton, CA pilot would finish fifth.

 

Heading over to the Placerville Speedway in Placerville, CA on Saturday night, Moore climbed aboard the F&F Racing No. x1 machine and went on to time in fifth fastest in qualifications.

 

Finishing third in his heat race, Moore would again find himself in the redraw where he would draw the seven pill and line up in the fourth row for the feature.

 




Battling with Andy Gregg early in the race, the duo would lose ground on the rest of the field as they exchanged the sixth spot for a handful of laps.

 

Once the battle with Gregg came to a head, Moore was able to track down the lead pack and get into the fifth spot. Once in fifth Moore was able to settle into a groove over the final laps as he closed his weekend with a second consecutive fifth place run.

 

“It’s good to be into a good groove and get back into racing shape,” Moore added. “I have been fortunate to have two good cars all year long so far so it has made it a nice start to the season for us.”

 

 

Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

 

ON TAP: Moore will venture back to the Placerville Speedway this Saturday night.

Moore Pockets Two Top-10’s




After engine issues sidelined him during Wednesday night’s World of Outlaws event in Placerville, CA, Mason Moore had a nice showing over the weekend in 360ci action as he picked up a fifth place finish on Friday night with the Civil War Series before fighting back to finish eighth on Saturday night at the Marysville Raceway. 

“It was a decent weekend overall for both teams,” Moore said. “Friday night we timed in well enough for the front row of our heat, but a questionable call moved us back and we had to come from mid pack in the feature. Saturday we had some good speed again and fought back to another Top-10 after an early wreck.”

 

Taking on the Civil War Series on Friday night aboard the F&F Racing No. x1 machine, Moore would time the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office entry in 12th fastest.

 

Slated to start on the front row of his heat, Moore would be penalized a row for what officials called a false start. Finishing third in the heat, Moore would miss out on the Dash, but was still in the feature event as he lined up in the sixth row for the 30-lap affair.

 

On a very racy Silver Dollar Speedway, the Princeton, CA driver was able to work his way forward as he quickly jumped into the Top-10. Using some early restarts to his advantage, Moore was quickly up into the Top five by the seventh lap as he battled with Justin Sanders and Bryan Clauson.

 

Able to battle with a charging Andy Forsberg late in the race, Moore would do a very nice job on Friday night as he kicked off the 2016 campaign with a fifth place finish.

 

Climbing aboard the Mason Moore Racing No. 22 entry for a night of racing on Saturday night at the Marysville Raceway, Moore would go out late for time trials on an extremely slick track, but was still able to turn in the fourth fastest lap of the night.

 

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Moore had a great start and would grab the lead coming out of turn four as the field completed the first lap.

 




Going on to pick up the win, Moore would grid the field from the second row for the 25-lap A Main event. Getting off to a rough start when the race went green, Moore went to make up some ground getting into turn three, but admittedly made a mistake that saw his machine spin out and receive some damage.

 

Aboard a battered entry, Moore was patient from the back of the pack as he worked his way forward. Taking advantage of some others misfortune, Moore was able to claw his way back inside the Top-10 and finish eighth.

 

“I hate to tear up equipment, but have to thank my guys for all of their hard work,” Moore said. “We have had a couple of nice runs in the 360ci entry this year, and hopefully we can get going the right way in the 410ci soon. It is good to be racing again, and hopefully I can continue to get in racing shape and be up front contending for wins soon.”

 

Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

 

ON TAP: Moore will be in Chico, CA on Friday night and then head to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Moore Kicks Season Off In Stockton, CA


Mason Moore kicked his 2016 season off over the weekend in Stockton, CA over the weekend by taking on the World of Outlaws aboard his Mason Moore Racing entry on Friday night, and contending with the ‘360’s’ on Saturday night aboard the Friends and Family Racing No. x1 entry. 

“It was good to get racing, and get the cobwebs and rust knocked off,” Mason Moore explained. “It’s tough to kick your season off taking of the World of Outlaws, but it was good to get a feel for the new car, and then get a chance to run with the new team on Saturday.”

 

Admittedly making a mistake in time trials on Friday night, Moore Timed his Coors Light/Geico/Econo Lube and Tune entry in 29th quickest, which would burry him for much of the night.

 

Finishing eighth in his heat race, Moore would line up in the fifth row of the Last Chance Showdown, but would be involved in an opening lap incident that forced him to the back of the pack. Following a lap seven restart, Moore was able to make something happen as he carved his way into the sixth spot, but missed out on a transfer to the feature.

 

Saturday night, Moore would climb aboard the Friends and Family Racing No. x1 machine to do battle with the 360 division that was also in action. Timing in ninth fastest, Moore would race his way to a heat race win and move into the Dash.

 

By way of his seventh place finish, Moore would line the Econo Lube and Tune/Geico Local Office entry up in the fourth row of the 30-lap A Main event.

 




Hanging in the Top-10 when the race got underway, Moore would work his way up a few spots before lapped traffic proved to be tough on him. Falling back to 10th, Moore would bring his first night of racing with the F&F Racing team to a close with  a Top-10 finish.

 

“I was happy with how things went in the 360 on Saturday night, “ Moore added. “We had a good car each time we hit the track, I just ran outta steam in the feature and we lost a couple of spots.”

 

Moore would like to thank Coors Light, Econo Lube and Tune, Geico Local Office, LRB Race Products, NAAKE Suspension, K&N, Selover Paint and Body, and Moore Insurance Services for their support.

 

ON TAP: Moore will be back in action on Wednesday night at the Placerville Speedway.

Mason Moore Excited For New Happenings In 2016

After health issues hampered his 2015 campaign, Mason Moore has been busy preparing for the 2016 season, and is excited to announce some new partnerships that have been formed for the season ahead. 

“2015 was a trying year for all of us, but I think it made us strong as a whole, and has everyone extremely motivated for the 2016 season,” Mason Moore said. “We have made some great new partnerships that I think will really make this season ahead a lot of fun.”

The 2016 season will see Moore compete aboard his Mason Moore Racing No. 22 entry on Friday night’s at the Silver Dollar Speedway, and Moore as teamed with veteran Crew Chief, and Chico, CA resident, Brian Cannon.

For 360ci action, Moore is excited to return to the seat of the F&F Racing No. x1 machine as the team plans to go after the Placerville Speedway Track Championship as well as the Civil War Series Championship. Moore and F&F Racing have history together as Moore competed with the team during the 2009 and 2010 season.

Moore is also excited to announce that Sacramento based companies, Econo Lube and Tune as well as Geico (Arden Way in Sacramento) have partnered with him and will in fact act as a marketing partner on both the Mason Moore Racing entry as well as the Friends and Family Racing machine.

“I am so thankful that the Friends and Family team has given me another opportunity to race with them,” Moore said. “We had some success together and I am looking forward to 2016. I am also really happy to partner with Econo Lube and Tune and Geico, as they have been in our local sport for the last few years, and it will be fun to race with their colors on both of our cars. I really have to thank Jeff Wolsleben for putting this together.”


The Shark Seventh With King of the West Series During Tribute to Gary Patterson

Sean Becker was a busy man on Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track as he competed with the Civil War Series aboard the F&F Racing No. x1 machine, and with the King of the West Series aboard the Menne Motorsports No. 75 machine. 

“We had some issues with the x1 car that didn’t allow us to finish the race, and some contact on the start of the King of the West race hampered us in the 75 car,” Sean Becker said.

 

In Civil War Series action, Becker got his night started out by timing the Friends and Family owned No. x1 machine 13th fastest out of the 39 drivers that were checked into the pit area.

 

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, ‘The Shark’ would grab the early lead, and never look back as he picked up the win and moved into the six-lap Civil War Series Dash.

 

Pulling the six pill during draw for staring positions, Becker would finish in the seventh spot of the Dash, putting his machine in the fourth row for the 30-lap feature event on a very rough and heavy racing surface.

 

Getting into the sixth spot when the race went green, the Roseville, CA driver raced hard as he chased after Brad Furr and Jonathan Allard looking for a way into the Top-Five. On the 11th circuit, Becker would have issues and his night would unfortunately come to an end.

 

“I really want to thank everyone involved with F&F Racing for allowing me to drive for them in the limited time I was available,” Becker noted.

 

Climbing aboard the Menne Motorsports No. 75 machine for the King of the West portion of the Tribute to Gary Patterson, Becker was fast out of the box on Saturday as he timed the Mike’s Hard Lemonade/Cherry Street Mini Storage/Menne Ranch Hay Inc. No. 75 machine in third fastest.

Finishing third in his heat race, Becker moved into the Dash based on his qualifying time, and by way of his victory he would earn the right to start on the pole for the 30-lap feature event.

 

Contact on the start would damage Becker’s muffler and header and he would lose a ton of track position and find himself back near the 10th spot. Fighting the effects from the contact, Becker would work his way back up to finish in the seventh spot.

 

“The No. 75 machine was extremely fast all night long, and I really want to thank Dan Menne and his family for making the trip down,” Becker added. “The main event we struggled, and it was odd because this car usually loves whens it’s rough and tumble like it was, but it was hard to hang on. Ron Shaver built us a great engine, and I am already looking forward to 2016 with this team.”

 

Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Hunt’s Race World, Molecule, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.

Becker Has Career Best Trophy Cup




PETERSEN MEDIA- The Thunderbowl Raceway hasn’t always been kind to Sean Becker, but the Roseville, CA would put that behind him during the 22nd Annual Trophy Cup as he finished a career best ninth in the overall point standings.

 

“We had a really solid weekend, and had great speed every time we hit the track,” Sean Becker said. “I am very happy with how the Friends and Family team worked all weekend, and have to thank them for all they did in what as a pretty crazy weekend.”

 

Following a severe Thunderstorm on Thursday night, the Thursday program was ran Friday afternoon, with the Friday night program scheduled to follow, creating a sprint car day-night double header.

 

Timing in fifth fastest for the Thursday night program, ‘The Shark’ would have a strong showing during his heat race as he charged from sixth to second to make himself eligible for the feature event.

 

Lining up in the fourth row of the opening 30-lap feature event, Becker would move forward on what was an extremely racy track given the day race circumstances. Battling with the likes of Tim Kaeding and Jason Statler, Becker would move into the fifth spot as he chased after Jason Statler.

 

Using a late race move, Becker would get by Statler to take over the fourth spot where he would go onto finish.

 

Resting as much as he could before the night show, Becker would continue to show speed at the Thunderbowl as he was able to time in well again, turning in the fifth fastest lap in his flight.

 

Racing his way from sixth to second again, Becker again moved directly into the 30-lap A Main event. Lining up eighth for the Friday night feature event, Becker would find himself collected in a seven-car wreck with one lap in the books, and his night would come to a close.

 

On the strength of his day-show performance, Becker sat sixth in Trophy Cup points heading into Saturday night heat races. Advancing two positions in his heat race to finish sixth, the Roseville, CA driver would line up 18th in the 50-lap A Main.

 

Racing wheel-to-wheel with some of his fiercest competitors, Becker was a part of a very entertaining start to the race that many were focused on as the high point earners looked to work their way through the field.

 

As things got spread out and there was a few restarts used, Becker would soon find himself up in the Top-10 and battling with Carson Macedo and Craig Stidham for position.

 

Running in the ninth spot as the track slowly began to take rubber, Becker would chase after Shane Golboic and Jac Haudenschild in the closing laps, but would close his night with a ninth place finish in both the race and the Trophy Cup points.

 

“I was really proud of this team’s weekend,” Becker said. “I was also proud to provide my family and friends the best weekend we have ever had at the Trophy Cup.”

 

Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Hunt’s Race World, Molecule, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.

Becker Seventh With Civil War Series



 

PETERSEN MEDIA- Grabbing the reigns to the F&F Racing No. x1 machine on Saturday night with the Civil War Series in Petaluma, CA, Sean Becker would nearly set a track record in qualifying time trials before finish seventh in the feature event.

 

“We were really fast early, but in the feature event we had our nose wing collapse and it really made the car a handful,” Sean Becker said.

 

30-cars packed into the pit area for the penultimate Civil War Series event of 2015, and going out nearly last in time trials, Becker would earn quick time honors as he came oh-so-close to establishing a new Petaluma Speedway track record.

 

Lining up in the second row of his heat race on this night, Becker would finish in the fourth spot and safely move into both the A Main event as well as the Dash. Finishing eighth in the Dash, the Roseville, CA driver would grid the field from the fourth row for the 30-lap A Main event.

 

When the race went green, Becker was able to work his way toward the Top-Five on what was a rough and heavy Petaluma Speedway. Getting as high as the sixth spot, Becker would then find himself with a collapsed nose wing which made the handling on his car difficult form this point forward.

 

Still able to hold his own against a star-studded field, Becker would only lose one position while man handling his entry, as he would finish in the seventh spot.


“When the race got underway I thought we were going to be pretty good, but when the nose wing collapsed, I knew we were in for a long night,” Becker said. “Fortunately we were still able to come away with a nice Top-10. I have to thank Alan, Tooch, and everyone with F&F Racing for the opportunity.”

 

Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Hunt’s Race World, Molecule, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.




Becker Shoots To Third At Placerville Speedway


Sean Becker and the F&F Racing team are proving to be quite the combination as the team picked up their third consecutive podium together as Becker stormed from his 12th starting position to finish third on Saturday night. 

“This F&F Racing team is a joy to drive for, and we have been really good each night we have hit the track together,” Sean Becker said.

 

23 cars checked into the pit area on Saturday night, and Becker did not get off to the start he was hoping for as he timed the No. x1 machine in 11th fastest. Though he lined up on the front row of his heat race, Becker would go toe-to-toe with Colby Copeland for the top spot as he looked for a berth in the Dash.

 

Coming up short and finishing in the second position, Becker would find himself in the sixth row for the 30-lap feature event. As the race came to life, ‘The Shark’ was on the prowl as he found himself inside the Top-10 when the caution flew on the sixth lap.

 

An extremely slick racing surface made passing tough at times, as Becker would continue to search for grip to get his machine moving toward the front though he would continue to run just inside the Top-10.

 

The race’s final restart would come on the 27th lap, and Becker would excite the crowd as he took his machine to the top-shelf in turns three and four and made a big time move in the race’s closing laps.

Getting by both Andy Forsberg and Colby Copeland, Becker would surge to the third spot to much of the crowd’s delight as the white flag flew. In the final lap of the race, Becker would fend off Forsberg’s challenge and close his night with a very hard fought third place finish.

 

“That last restart I saw everyone go to the bottom and I told myself I had to try,” Becker said describing his late race move. “I went up top, it stuck, and we landed on the podium. I have to thank everyone on this F&F team for all of their hard work.”

 

Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.



The Shark Takes Bite Out of Calistoga

Saturday night in Calistoga, CA Three-Time Civil War Series Champion, Sean Becker, climbed aboard the potent Friends and Family Racing No. x1 machine, and picked up his second career Calistoga Speedway in the series’ first visit at the speedway since 2012. 

“I just can’t believe how fortunate I am to join such a great group of guys, and be so fast right out of the box,” Becker said.

 

With a light count of 15 cars on hand for the return of the Calistoga Cup, Becker timed the FnF Racing No. x1 machine in second quick to Rico Abreu, before picking up a third place finish in heat race action.

 

Moving into the night’s dash, the Roseville, CA driver would start third, and finish in the fourth spot, putting him in the second row for the 25-lap A Main event. When the race came to life, Becker moved to the high side of the speedway, as he got by Dominc Scelzi exiting turn two, and began his race long pursuit of Shane Golobic.

 

With a lap five caution the lone stoppage in the race, Becker was on the prowl, as Golobic’s large lead found him in lapped traffic. Closing in on the leader, Becker stalked Golobic and waited for his chance to pounce, and that came with five to go as they headed down the front stretch.

 

Jumping into the lead, Becker would never look back as he would hit his marks around the big, slick speedway as he picked up his second career win at the famed ½ mile.


“To win at a historical track like Calistoga is beyond emotional for me,” Becker added. “To gel, and show so much speed so quickly makes me even more proud to be a part of this Friends and Family racing team.”

 

Becker would like to thank Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Cherry Street Mini Storage, Menne Ranch Hay Inc., Astro Titanium, Ponybracket.com, Shaver Racing Engines, FK Rod Ends, and K&N for their support in 2015.
