Devin Moran Masters Muskingum
County for $10,000 Win!
8, 2022) Devin Moran, of nearby Dresden, Ohio, racked up
his third career 'Jim Dunn Memorial' title on Saturday night, October
8 at Muskingum County Speedway! Devin qualified well in the season
finale at the Zanesville, Ohio oval and later secured a heat race
victory. After starting the 40-lap headliner from the outside of
the front row, Devin made an outside move on lap four to grab the
point in the unsanctioned contest. The popular young driver known
as the "Mailman" then paced the remaining circuits to
pocket the $10,000 first place prize money ahead of a top five that
included runner-up Tyler Carpenter, Doug Drown, Matt Cosner, and
Jacob Hawkins! (Tyler Carr Racing Photos)
Wooster, Ohio ace Doug Drown earned Fast Time honors
of the 41 Super Late Model entrants during qualifying. Drown, Moran,
Shane McLoughlin, and Corey Conley won the four heat races. Caiden
Black and Andy Bond were victorious in the pair of consolation events.
It was a very successful 40th annual 'Jim Dunn Memorial.'

Freedom 60 Win at Muskingum County!
3, 2022) Brandon Sheppard took the lead after two laps
and never trailed from there as the current Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series points leader went on to win the Elite Munitions Freedom
60 on Sunday night at Muskingum County Speedway. The race was the
biggest in the track’s history, paying $30,000 to win and
was ran before a packed grandstand at the Moran-family promoted

Hudson O’Neal tried valiantly after the final
caution of the race as he tried the extreme topside of the track
but could not muster enough momentum to track down Sheppard. Sheppard
flashed across the line 2.064 seconds ahead of O’Neal. Tyler
Erb finished in third followed by Tim McCreadie and Daulton Wilson.
and Erb Take Preliminary Features at MCS!

Erb each captured a 20-lap preliminary feature on Saturday night

participate in an A-Main event to set the first nine rows of the
feature for the track’s richest race ever on Sunday night
for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned $30,000-to-win
race. (Heath Lawson Photo)
The first feature that kicked off the night turned
into a four-car battle the entire distance. Thornton, who had won
the previous night in Portsmouth, Ohio after starting in fifth came
from the same starting spot in Saturday’s prelim main event
to take the lead on the 11th lap to score the feature win, earning
the pole starting spot for the 60-lap main event on Sunday.
