Devin Moran smiles amid the No. 1 signs in victory lane at Florence.
What won the race: Overtaking second-starting Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., on lap 14 of 50, polesitter Devin Moran of Dresden, Ohio, led the remaining circuits, holding off a charging Lanigan in the final laps to capture a $5,000 victory at Florence Speedway.
Quotable: "I knew I was really good on the restarts and I could get right on (Darrell) Lanigan's back bumper," Moran said. "I just drove down into one and two and it stuck, so I just kept on going. I got in front of him and he crossed me over and I just drove it down in three and four so he couldn't slide me back and it stuck again. We just really never looked back from there."
