Devin had to restart in 4th place following the caution and drove to a solid 3rd place and podium finish behind Davenport and Brandon Sheppard. This was the first ever trip to I-80 Speedway for Devin Moran and he quickly adapted to the multi-groove track in Nebraska.

“That was a fun race especially swapping positions lap after lap with Tyler Erb there in the middle stages of the race for 4th place at the time. I didn’t need that caution with 11 laps to go just when I was about to pull a slider on JD for the lead. Don’t know if we would have won but it would have been interesting as my car was so good there on that restart. But we will take it and hope we can improve two positions for Saturday’s big show and that $53,000 first place prize money. I have to thank Big River Steel, GETSCO, Pro Power, Rocket Chassis, Kemp Lamm and Dunn Benson Motorsports for the opportunity to drive their car this year. Thanks to all my product sponsors and fans that support our race program”, stated Devin Moran, driver of the Dunn Benson Motorsports #1 Racecar.
