Dana Moore Returns to racing in
Hickory Motor Speedway’s “Fall Brawl”

Hickory, NC (October 18, 2005) – Dana Moore returned to racing last Sunday for her first-ever Late Model Stock Car race at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, where she piloted the No. 51 Chevy Monte Carlo for Lightning S Motorsports.

Moore qualified 28th and finished 14th in one of the most competitive late model races in the country. Hickory’s “Fall Brawl” has become one of the largest late model events of the year drawing several top teams and drivers.

After nearly a two year break from racing due to an injury that occurred during a road race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Dana Moore has returned to the track. She is now fully healed and focused on a stock car career.

“It’s great to be back in the race car,” said Moore. “I feel good about my finish since it was my first late model race. I learned a lot tonight and accomplished my goal of finishing the race.”

The 250 lap race was a fierce challenge for Moore’s first stock car race. She had limited time in the car and on the track. Much of her competition for the race had backing from big NASCAR teams such as Evernham and Childress.

“We tested up here a little bit, but I’ve never run a short track race in full bodied stock cars until tonight,” said Moore, who’s an accomplished road racer. “It’s a completely different style of racing.”

Moore plans to continue her pursuit of a stock car racing career in various late model events around the south this year. She hopes to run a full season next year in either the ARCA/RE MAX series or a similar series.

“I laid down a solid foundation tonight and look forward to continuing to move further in stock car racing,” Moore added.
