Dana Moore, of El Cajon, California finished 7th and 8th place at two Legend Car races held this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It was the kickoff to an eight race series that will take place over the winter on the inside road course of the Speedway in Las Vegas.
49 cars showed up for the first weekend of races. Moore finished with a solid 7th place in the first race on Saturday. Sunday's race started off with some bad luck for Moore after the car's rear axle broke during a practice session. The car couldn't be fixed in time for the qualifying race, which put Moore in a desperate situation to make the main event.
Starting in the back of the B main Moore passed nearly the entire field to finish second. She was able to make the main event race where she started in the 26th position. Moore drove a hard race avoiding several close call wrecks and making several passes.
She was able to finish the race in 8th place. "It was tough starting in the back of the pack for the race. I was really fast but kept getting held up in traffic. I wish there were more laps in the race because I think I could have gotten into the top five." Said Moore.
Moore was turning race times close to the leader and winner of the event Kyle Busch, who is the younger brother of the famed NASCAR driver Kurt Busch. Moore plans to race the entire eight race series with hopes of becoming the Silver State Champion.
