ELDON, Mo. — Rees Moran has been knocking on the door looking for his first AmeriFlex / OCRS IMCA Sprint Car victory. Saturday he finally got it.

Sitting second in points without a win, Moran has been the picture of consistency. Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway Moran led 19 of 20 laps and became the 12th different winner in 15 events to-date.

Kyle Clark led the first lap then gave up the point to Moran on lap 2. Clark stayed within striking distance running up against the cushion and was chased by Friday night winner Whit Gastineau. With three lapses remaining Gastineau wheeled into second dropping Clark to third. Kenny Potter crossed the line in fourth and Elizabeth Phillips rounded out the top five.

The win allowed Moran to close within 45 points of Blake Edwards for the series points lead.

The finish:
