Devin Moran visits Legendary Hilltop Speedway's victory lane.
What won the race: Third-starting Devin Moran of Dresden, Ohio, inherited the lead from polesitter Freddie Carpenter of Parkersburg, W.Va., who spun in turn two on lap 15 while leading. Moran held off a late charge from Freddie's son Tyler Carpenter for a 30-lap victory paying $3,000 on the AMRA-STARS Late Model Alliance.
Quotable: "Every time we've been here I've been really good. The first time we were ever on the track I set the track record," Moran said. "It seems like our package works really good here."
Key notes: Moran was collected in Freddie Carpenter's lap-15 spin in turn two, but he was restored to the front for the restart. ... Moran won last year at Legendary Hilltop Speedway during the Buckeye Late Model Speedweek. ... Runner-up Tyler Carpenter and Kyle Thomas got together in the second half of the race battling for second with Thomas also doing a little fender-banging with Tim Dohm. ... Dohm was running third late when a flat tire hampered him as he slipped back to fourth. ... On Legends 30 night honoring former racers Bob Adams Jr., Dave Robinson and Bernie Triplet, Freddie Carpenter (driving a Mike Balzano No. E1 throwback), Tyler Carpenter (driving a Dave Robinson throwback No. 88) and Ronnie Mayle (driving a Triplet No. 50 throwback) sported different decal schemes than normal.
Winner's sponsors: Moran's Barry Wright Race Car is sponsored by Tommy Pope Construction, Phillips Properties, Dow Cameron Oil and Gas, Donnie Moran Driving School, All About Wraps, Kendrick Excavating, Eddie's Sunoco and Accu-Force Shock Dyno.
Points chase: Entering the race, Travis Brookover of Kenna, W.Va., led points on the first-year AMRA-STARS Alliance.
