Moore continues Chatham hot streak with SUPR Series win
by Bryan Wimberley
CHATHAM, La. (June 11) - Polesitter Ray Moore of Haughton, La., picked up another Jones Motor Speedway win, beating defending series champion, Rob Litton of Alexandria, on the O'Reilly Southern United Professional Racing Series tour Saturday night. Moore pocketed $2,500 and registered his 16th overall series victory in the process, taking a straightaway advantage at the checkered flags.
Moore also has two unsanctioned victories at the quarter-mile track in Chatham this season, as well as a $5,000 inaugural Deuces Wild win and a second-place Spooky 50 finish, both occurring last October.
Front-row starter Litton settled for second, while Ronny Adams of Diana, Tex., ended up third. Jody Prince of Sibley, finished fourth and Nicholas Brown of Quitman, La., completed an impressive 18th-to-fifth run, rounding out the top five.
Current series points leader, Morgan Bagley of Longview, Tex., moved up only one spot from his 7th-starting position for a sixth-place finish, but it was good enough to pad his points lead, upping it to 183 over now, second-place Allen Tippen.
Notes: Moore's MB2 Customs Chassis is powered by a Jay Dickens Racing Engine and sponsored by Moore Wireline Inc, tic Tools International, X-Treme Graphics, Smith's Towing and J&J Motorsports.
The win marked Moore's fifth of 2011 and his second in the SUPR Series -the other coming at Boothill Speedway on May 6th. Moore has entered (18) total events this season with (13) being top ten finishes.
Ray Moore is currently third in the FansFund.com (Fans Supporting Racers) contest, an event that raises money for drivers/teams who attends the USA Nationals. Moore trails leader Mike Marlar and 2010 Topless 100 winner, Jared Landers in the voting (as of June 13). Fans across the nation donate and vote on drivers entered into the contest. The fund is set up to help elevate costs for a team participating at the New Richmond, Wisconsin race on August 5th-6th.
Six cautions slowed the feature, with fourteen cars running at the finish and twelve on the lead lap.
The race was the 15th time the series has visited the facility, spanning a 20-year period and just four times in the last five seasons.
Former Chatham track champion, Nicholas Brown, lost a drive shaft in his heat, forcing him into a consolation race. Brown received a loaner drive shaft from Ronny Adams and finished second in the consy, giving him an 18th-starting spot in the feature. Brown would be the hard charger of the race, climbing 13 spots for a fifth place finish. Brown won at Jones Motor Speedway last weekend in a $1,000-to-win, weekly super late model event and also has a second, third and a fourth at the track this season.
Brett Frazier of Haughton, La., was another big feature mover, going from 16th-to eighth.
John Mark Mills of West Monroe, La., took a nasty looking spill, head-on into the back straight-away wall, where cars enter onto the speedway. Mills was uninjured and retired in 15th.
Drivers not making the feature included, Paul Joyner, Jesse Mills, Derek Perkins and Brandon Russell.
The O'Reilly Southern United Professional Racing Series tour returns to action next weekend with a $2,500-to-win event, at I-30 Speedway in Bryant, Arkansas on June 18th.
