The home of the Snowball Derby played home to the Lawrence Towing Outlaw Modifieds as the series descended on Pensacola, Florida and Five Flags Speedway for the Bob Moore Memorial 100. Last season’s champion JR Shepherd comes into Round 7 with a three point lead over John Holcomb with only four races remaining.
Ernie Brown (#8) and Brian Neff (#60) led the field away from the front row with Brown jumping out to the early lead. Neff would make a strong move on lap 28 of the event to take the race lead from Brown.
Neff controled the race until just past halfway when points leader Shepherd (#98) made the pass for the lead on lap 55.
Shepherd hung on to win the Bob Moore Memorial 100 with Moore coming home in the second position. “It was definitely an adventure for sure. I was really trying to save my tires at the beginning. I think that was the only difference when it came to racing Neff at the end” said Shepherd after the race.
The Lawrence Towing Outlaw Modified Series heads to South Boston for round 8 of the series. You can catch all the action on iRacing Live broadcast by the Global SimRacing Channel. Tune in at 9:15pm EST. The green flag drops at 9:30pm.
