Moran Named Series Director For NASCAR Canadian Tire Series

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Dec. 20, 2008) -- NASCAR has named Brad Moran as Series Director for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by SIRIUS Satellite Radio. He succeeds Richard Coughlin, who resigned to take a position with NASCAR Canada.

Moran, 47, comes to NASCAR with over 20 years of experience in the motorsports industry. Most recently, he was the owner of Barrie (Ontario) Speedway. There, he reconfigured the race track which included adding a pit road in an effort to attract bigger events. He built a top-notch local racing program at the .333-mile bullring that remains one of the finest in Ontario. In 2007, Moran and Barrie Speedway hosted a pair of NASCAR Canadian Tire Series events in its inaugural season. He also brought the speedway into the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series family of tracks.

In addition to his seven seasons at Barrie Speedway, Moran has had a varied presence in the sport since the early 1990s. Primarily, though, racing was a hobby as he owned and operated businesses in the printing industry until purchasing Barrie Speedway prior to the 2001 racing season.

"The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is off to a great start in its first two years," said Moran. "I simply want to help grow the series by attracting more Canadian companies to become involved, along with the continuation of developing the stock-car talent base here in Canada."

The third season for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is slated to get underway in May 2009.
