KYLE MOODY LANDS IN VICTORY LANE AGAIN IN 2019

Abbottstown, PA (August 3, 2019) – Kyle Moody is no stranger to victory lane but going into Saturday night he was still looking for his first multi-win season. Moody started on the pole of the 25-lap feature and got out to the lead with Tim Glatfelter running second.

Adam Wilt got under Glatfelter coming out of turn 2 for second and made a run for the lead but Moody held him off. Chase Dietz was up to third on lap 2 from his fifth starting position.

You name it and they probably have it. Over time we’ve been able to build a relationship with them which then led to them becoming a partner for the 2019 season.

Lewisberry, Pa. (February 18, 2019) – This weekend marks the beginning of the 2019 Sprint Car season in Central Pennsylvania and Moody Motorsports’ 20th year of racing. The team’s owner and driver, Kyle Moody started racing go-karts in 1999 and hasn’t looked back. As Moody has paved his way through the ranks, his goal each year is simple, improve from the previous season and win races. 

This year, Moody and the team have made great progress over the off-season. In just four short months, the team has increased inventory, added one new crew member, formed a marketing strategy and welcomed three new sponsors to the team. Meckley Contracting Service, Wessels Used Cars and Drop of Ink Tattoo and Body Piercing will join the team for its 20th season. 

  • Meckley Contracting Service operates out of the Spring Grove area. They specialize in new home construction, additions and renovations, roofing as well as maintenance and repair.
  • Wessels Used Cars is a used car dealership located in Dillsburg, PA. If you’re looking for a great deal on used cars visit Wessels and ask for Brad Rodgers or visit Wesselsusedcars.com.

“Ever since we sat down as a team to talk about our 2019 goals, there’s a renewed excitement among the team,” said Moody. “Even before we realized that it’s our 20th season in racing, we just feel like this season is going to be something special. We’ve put a lot of time into the off-season to prepare for 2019 and put ourselves in a position to follow our mission of being prepared in a well-maintained, competitive and presentable manner. All-in-all, I’m really excited for the challenge that this season brings as we increase our race schedule significantly.”

Moody and the team will tackle an 80-race schedule in 2019 which is a significant jump from their 2018 schedule. Some highlighted races on the schedule include World of Outlaw races at Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, All-Star races at BAPS Motor Speedway, Hagerstown Speedway, Grandview Speedway, Port Royal and Williams Grove. In addition, the Weikert Memorial, as well as fair week races at Port Royal, and the entire Pennsylvania Speedweek.

“I think the increased schedule shows just how much we did and what steps we took in the last few seasons to put ourselves into the position to be more competitive at the highest level,” Moody stated. “A schedule like this would not be possible without the continued commitment of our current partners and our new partners that have noticed our efforts. I’m not going to lie, we have a challenge ahead of us to maintain our equipment throughout this schedule as there are a lot of different factors that play into our ability to do that.”

Hannah.mae12@live.com

Lewisberry, Pa. (October 18, 2018) – Today Kyle Moody and the Moody Motorsports team announced that they have ended their 2018 season and will shift their priority to rebuilding for 2019. 2018 was a season of growth for the team as they saw early success with the addition of crew chief Billy Dietrich in March. With Dietrich on board, it allowed Moody to focus on his driving as he raced against some of the best Sprint Car drivers in the world each week.

While Moody is fortunate to learn from the best on the track, he also dedicates a portion of his week to watching his previous races to learn and grow as a driver. His dedication showed throughout the season as he continued to become more aggressive on track. In 42 races, the team accumulated eight top-five and 20 top-10 finishes.

While the 2018 season was not without its trial and tribulations, Moody is happy with what the team has accomplished this season.

“Overall I’m happy with the steps that we’ve made this season,” said Moody. “We have built a solid foundation that will launch us into next season right where we feel like we should be. The important thing is that we never stopped learning from our mistakes and every challenge that was thrown our way made us stronger as a team. We’ll spend a small amount of time reflecting on 2018 but we’re not going to waste any time gearing up for 2019.”

With the addition of photographer and creative designer Zack Barber, the team also ramped up their social media presence, fan outreach and sponsor relations.

“While we’ve always acknowledged the need for more marketing support to better connect with our fans, as well as current and potential sponsors, we’ve never really had the means to do it,” said Moody. “Zack has done some really great things for us this year, including a hype video and Snapchat filter for the Dirt Classic, and has even created a weekly newsletter to keep our sponsors informed on our weekend results and the next week’s races. We’re grateful for everything that Zack has done for us this season and are looking forward to coming up with some new marketing initiatives for next year.”

Check Out What’s New with Moody Motorsports Team Headed towards Growth in 2018 and Beyond

Lewisberry, Pa. – As summer ends in Central Pennsylvania, the Moody Motorsports team continues to find their groove. Throughout the 2018 season, the team has made subtle changes to improve and grow the solid foundation they’ve already built. 

“As a smaller team, we have to get on the same level as some of these larger teams that we compete with every week and we’re realizing that we have to think outside of the box to do that,” said Kyle Moody, driver and team owner of the No. 99M.

With the help of photographer and creative designer Zack Barber, Moody Motorsports has been working to increase marketing and media efforts to promote the team. The team even has a new mission statement, which is something you don’t typically find with a sprint car team. However, it proves that this close-knit group strongly believes in what they’re doing. The mission of Moody Motorsports is “to build and maintain a respected sprint car team” and Moody proves to be doing just that.

Heading into the summer, the team started working towards a more aggressive schedule, which included competing in the majority of the 2018 Pennsylvania Speedweek races and the extra effort is paying off. Moody has raced his way to eight Top-10 finishes within the last eleven races and the team has found itself surrounded by strong supporters and products that they can build a future with.

While Moody has been fortunate to have had a lot of great experiences in racing, one race on his bucket list is to compete in one of the biggest midget sprint car events, the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. However, getting to the Chili Bowl is something that Moody acknowledges he likely won’t be able to do on his own and that’s where his partnership with MBV Dirt comes in. As a promotion in 2018, MBV Dirt will provide an opportunity for one lucky driver to race in the 33rd running of the annual event.

“Racing at the Chili Bowl has been a longtime dream of mind. I’ve never attended the race before because I refuse to go unless I’m racing,” says Moody. For more information on the campaign and how you can help Moody get to the Chili Bowl, visit www.mbvdirt.com or reach out to a team member from Moody Motorsports.

RICK KAYLOR HIRES KYLE MOODY FOR 2018 USAC EASTERN STORM

HARRISBURG, PA – With single-digit temperatures and forecasts of snow having Central Pennsylvania feeling like anything but a sprint car paradise, the first green flag is set to drop in less than two months. Whether Mother Nature allows that or not is yet to be seen, but sprint car owner Rick Kaylor has been full steam ahead in preparation for the 2018 season. One year removed from his first foray in wingless sprint car racing, Kaylor has been focused on ways to help his Rick Kaylor Racing team take another step forward in the upcoming year.

“I learned so much last season. So many things are different from winged racing. Just having the experience of last year should go a long way in making us more competitive next year,” said Kaylor.


Another piece of the puzzle? Hiring a driver with several years of experience in wingless sprint car racing. Kyle Moody, now an experienced winged 410 sprint car driver, has spent the last several years shedding his wings in the month of June when USAC comes to Pennsylvania for their annual Eastern Storm swing. Dating back to his 358 sprint car days, Moody has taken a liking to wingless racing. 


“Kyle has run the Eastern Storm series several years in a row now. I wanted to keep a Pennsylvania driver in a Pennsylvania car, and Kyle has shown potential the past few years. We’re going to do a fair amount of practicing before Eastern Storm to get comfortable with each other. We both want to improve our results from last season. Kyle has a lot of knowledge and resources, and I know I can provide him with the equipment that he needs to be competitive,” discussed Kaylor.  


Currently, Eastern Storm is the primary focus. If the PA races go well, Kaylor is prepared to take the 13K west for USAC’s Indiana Sprint Week. Eastern Storm will kick off on June 14 at Grandview Speedway and runs six consecutive nights through June 19 at Weedsport (NY) Speedway. The other races are held at Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway, BAPS Motor Speedway, and Bridgeport (NJ) Speedway.


In addition to welcoming Kyle to the RKR team, Rick is happy to welcome a new sponsor as well.  A valuable addition to the wingless effort this season is Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists. Based near Allentown, PA, AWRS is supplying the 13K team with a trailer and other valuable resources for all races on the 2018 schedule. 


With a lot of excitement building for Eastern Storm, wingless racing is only a part of Kaylor’s local racing involvement.  Rick has been involved with driver Jordan Givler over his entire racing career. Two years ago, Kaylor and Givler partnered in the purchase of a 358 sprint car engine as Givler formed his own race team, Exceleration Motorsports. Their relationship has continued to grow, with Kaylor fielding the 13K as a winged car in the 2017 Williams Grove Nation Open with Jordan behind the wheel. For 2018, the duo have sold their 358 engine and are moving full-time to 410 racing. 


Jordan’s number 90 sprint car will be running many of the races at Lincoln Speedway and BAPS Motor Speedway. There will also be trips to race in Western Pennsylvania, with the possibility of races in Ohio and New York with the All-Star Circuit of Champions. The 410 engine will be under the hood of a new X-1 Race Car. 


“We visited Ryan Linder’s fab shop and were very impressed. We each bought one of his cars. Right now, mine is there to function as Jordan’s backup car. If something unexpected happens, we’ll have it to finish out our wingless racing with Kyle during Eastern Storm,” explained Kaylor. 


Rick will also continue to be involved with 410 drivers Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease, as well as 358 drivers Troy Rhome and Gregg Foster. Rick’s Auto Body will also be adorning the sides of Kyle Weiss’s modified in Eastern PA.

Moody Sidelined by Motor Woes

​By: Tye Wolfgang

If you tell any racer his season is over before the season is truly over, it’s like tearing out a piece of his heart. Kyle Moody is no different. Moody lost a power plant Friday evening at Williams Grove and has sidelined the #99M for the rest of the season, unless additional resources can be obtained.

“This isn’t fun. I got tires mounted, barrels of fuel that are full, and my car is ready to go. I just need a motor.” Moody and his team have the equipment in place to drop a motor in and be ready for this weekend if something surfaces. “I can go at moment’s notice,” said Moody of the current situation. Anyone with any potential offers, or possible deals, can contact Moody directly or Tye Wolfgang at 717-250-2602 for contact info for Moody.

The Lewisberry driver is also more than happy to pilot any open rides at any event or the remainder of the season. “Not racing the weekend of the Dirt Classic and the National Open wasn’t the plan by any means,” but things happen. He even went as far as to say that if a smaller team was on the fence of racing or not racing, he can bring his tires and fuel that are at the shop.

Moody Motorsports started the season off strong with fresh equipment, but by mid-season the equipment was “tired.” “I only have one of everything and by June it’s pretty raced out ya know.” It’s a shame. Because they were running extremely well.

Moody is one to constantly look into the future and think “what’s best for my team.” He wants to expand. “I want to grow my team so we aren’t in this position in years to come.” It takes resources and supporters to grow a team. It isn’t easy. “I’m grateful for everything anyone does and things, but I don’t want to spend a dime unless it’s with a motor program. Other equipment doesn’t do anything without a motor to power it.”

As for the direction of his team as far as where and when he will be racing next season, that isn’t set in stone yet. “We aren’t 100% sure on that yet, I just don’t want to be in this situation next season.” Moody has a great business mind and would make a tremendous partner for anyone to engage in a sponsorship role with. He is looking to further his team’s resources and his racing career in general.

The early part of the 2017 season Moody felt they were very competitive. “We were good early in the year when things were fresh.” Then mid-season Kyle had a decently successful USAC Eastern Storm, as of late he struggled with mechanical woes. One thing not seen on the surface was how much Kyle learned as a mechanic. “This was my first year calling my own shots, so at times that was trying, but I learned a lot.” Moody wore many hats in 2017: Owner, driver, mechanic, and team manager all fell on his shoulders.

The season didn’t end as planned, but Moody knows the races he did run and races he will run in the future, wouldn’t be possible without all of his supporters: Dynatech Controls, Pigeon Hill Designs, Alloy Wheel Repair, ISSC, and Ken Baldwin.

“Hopefully something comes together and I can race.”- Kyle Moody

Moody Deems Eastern Storm Successful

Kyle Moody may not have been standing on the podium every night, but he made progress. That’s the important part. Aside from a minor incident at Grandview he kept his HP powered, Maxim in one piece. 

The week got progressively better each and every night. After getting the opening woes out of the way at Grand View, Moody set his sights on finding the balance between qualification events and a time that would provide decent starting position. Moody joked earlier in the week that formatting was the most difficult part of competing with USAC. 

USAC’s format lines the faster cars up at the back of a heat race. However, those that transfer are rewarded with higher starting positions in the main event. This makes heat racing fun for the fans but can be a night mare for a team that only goes wingless one week a year. Something Moody experienced every night. 

Not only did the nights start to appear more solid and consistent, Moody felt better.  “We felt we got better as the week went on.” This is an indisputable comment as the results backed it up. Moody had a decent night at Port Royal Speedway after having woes getting to the track, in the sense of a flat tire on the rig. The night then progressed on and by the end, the Allow Wheel Repair, Pigeon Hills designs, Gene Franckowiak 99m placed 12th in the final run down. A decent night. Moody then back up his Port Royal efforts with a 15th place run at Susquehanna Speedway of Sunday. 

The week was extremely trying for even the greats of wingless racing.  A noted USAC driver even had to cut his trip short and return home to regroup. These factors makes it even more impressive that a “one-night a week self-owned team” could successfully complete the entire tour. “It was a long week” admits Moody of his week long endeavors. The team may not necessarily have obtained the results they wished, however that doesn’t mean it was wasted time. “It’s something to build upon.” 

The team will now return to their typical winged competition for the remainder of the season. That does not mean they will forget everything gained this week. They will use that knowledge and materials obtained to become better outfitted for next season. Moody, has nothing to be ashamed of. Out of the PA regulars he was the most impressive to complete the entire series. 

They would once again like to thank each and every supporter. Moody Motorsports Media coverage was presented by Tye Wolfgang Promotions and Sprint Dudes.

Headin' West

Kyle Moody finally got a complete night together. Time trials, heat, and feature. Everything at the Grove went smoothly. No hard luck, no mechanical failure, just racing.

Moody timed into the inverson and qualified for the feature via his heat race. Starting deep on the grid, the Alloy Wheel Repair, Pigeon Hills Designs, Gene Franckowiak #99m would have some work to do.

During the opening laps of the main event Moody was maintaining position on the track. Approximately half way through the feature he was noticeably making up ground. Moody was racing closely with fellow winged competitor Danny Dietrich for multiple laps. Giving the appearance of a Saturday day night in the Pigeon Hills. When the final flag of the evening was thrown, Moody found himself a respectable twelfth place in the run down. However, more importantly he was making strides and getting more comfortable in the car. 

Earlier in the week Moody stated that the team would base their Saturday evening plans off of how the week progressed. "I kept feeling more and more comfortable. We were getting faster so we are going to go up to Port."

Moody and the team will indeed be continuing their wingless endeavours Saturday night, at the Juniata County half mile. Before closing things off with the Eastern Storm finale at Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday evening. 

If you're at Port Royal or Susquehanna make sure you pick up a wingless T-shirt. Kyle Moody's Eastern Storm has been presented all week long by Tye Wolfgang Promotions. Moody is ever so relentless in stating that none of this could be possible without the help of each and everyone of his supporters.

Battle Under the Bridge Kyle Moody set for Williams Grove

Kyle Moody is a true racer. Last night he competed at Lincoln speedway and as the sun is coming up he is already in the shop preparing for Williams Grove. Moody is the multipurpose man of his operation. "I drive the car, work on it, tow the trailer and pretty much everything else" says Moody with a chuckle about being the base of his operation. However, in a week like Eastern Storm it can be trying. Many races, many hours, little help. 

Despite putting in hours of time after a trying night one at Grandview, the 99m had a quote "alright" night at the fabulous Lincoln Speedway. Moody had a much less eventful set of time trail laps then he did the previous night. " Maybe I was just a little hesitant after the night before and then a few guys busted some stuff up right before I went out." Moody's time was still good enough to make the inversion. From his heat, the Alloy Wheel Repair, Pigeon Hills Designs machine, would lock into the feature event. "We got qualified, but it's tough deal to hit it just right with the time trials and things. You're either up front in your heat and back in the feature or the other way around." Kyle is finding a balance.

The feature assembled with Moody deep in the field. "We just weren't good enough early." A spilt second in time trials is the difference between starting on the front row or the ninth row. Thankfully, Moody had a good car in the feature. "We were good later in the night. Just a little too good a little too late I guess." Moody would find himself officially scored 15th in the run down when the checkers flew.

"It was a better night. Just have to get ready for the Grove." If you constantly do what you always have, you will end with the same result. That's why he knows tonight he must combine Grandview's time trial speed with Lincoln's feature performance. " We just have to time better tonight but still be there later." The perfect combination.

Moody will base Saturday night's plans off of tonight. The choice between Lincoln and Port Royal will be depending upon how tonight plays out. "I'll know what we are doing for Saturday after the feature tonight." No matter what the decision for the weekend, Moody again stressed that this couldn't be possible without his sponsors and continued support from Gene Franckowiak and Ken Baldwin.

Wingless Shirts will again be available at Williams Grove tonight. Fans can continue to follow along with Moody's wingless experience all weekend right here presented by Tye Wolfgang Promotions.

Grandview Press Release

Grandview- Kyle Moody wasn't kidding when he said that he liked Grandview, but  it doesn't feel the same about him.

Moody laid down an impressive first lap in time trials, a lap that was second fastest at the time and would stand at fourth fastest on the night. That landed him ahead of some impressive names among the wingless business. The second lap, not as rewarding. Moody crossed that extremely fine line in turns three and four. That just turned the front end enough to pull the car into the rail, causing heavy front end damage to his 99m. 

Moody's crew immediately went to work to repair the machine knowing that with a successful first lap time, if they could transfer to the main event the lap time would reward them with a nice starting position.

During the qualification events disaster again struck. This time in the form of engine failure. Thus ending the teams night. Moody was obviously disappointed considering he had an extremely fast race car. However, he isn't dejected about the outlook of the week. "The plan is to get the car back together and be at Lincoln tomorrow."

Perseverance will pay off. The speed is there and it's a "home game" in the Pigeon Hills. A nice combination.

One off the biggest take away points from Grandview was the immense amount of fan support in the form of cheers surging over the speedway. While Moody was announced during his hot lap session and especially at the time he was called to the track for time trails. Fans applauded the versatility of one of Central PA's winged drivers. "That makes me feel pretty good." A good fan base is important to anyone especially when racing in unfamiliar situations. "Hopefully we can give them something more to cheer about at Lincoln." 

That shouldn't be an issue. The local fans following Eastern Storm love Moody. That's rewarding. It makes it worth all the hours and the dedication required to perform at a high level.

Moody knows he couldn't compete at the level he is without his great partners. Alloy Wheel and Pigeon Hills Designs are proud supporters of Moody Motorsports. Moody is also receiving support this week from Ken Baldwin and driver Chris Windom. Gene Franckowiak has been a huge supporter of Kyle's wingless endeavours. This all couldn't be possible without each and every one of the teams partners including Maxim Chassis and HP engines.

Fans can follow Moody's entire Eastern Storm right here presented all week long by Tye Wolfgang Promotions.

Wingin’ it Wingless Kyle Moody Set for USAC Eastern Storm

Lewisberry Pa; It’s Tuesday morning, but the tone is different. Today is race day, wingless style. Nobody is more excited than Kyle Moody, “we’re ready to go” says Moody of tomorrows kick off of USAC Eastern Storm at Grandview Speedway. “I really like Grandview, it’s one of my favorite places to run.” Now only if Grandview liked Moody as much as he liked it. “We just don’t seem to have good runs there. Get caught up in something or crashed out.” Just bad Luck. Moody hopes to change that tomorrow aboard his 99m.

Moody is one of the few Central Pa winged sprint car drivers that consistently tosses the wing and charges into a “storm” of wingless racing’s biggest stars. That doesn’t mean they aren’t equipped for success. “We have a Maxim Chassis that is for this wingless deal,” an advantage most Central Pa racers don’t have when they race against USAC. Moody has bolted in his normal HP engine for the week. He also has another resource in his pit stall, the driver/owner duo of Chris Windom and Ken Baldwin. “There isn’t a better guy around then Baldwin” says Moody of the world renowned USAC owner. “Chris and his guys have me out a good bit.” It never hurts to reach for words of “Windom.”

This is one of Moody’s favorite weeks of the season. “I love to do this even though we don’t get to do it a lot.” Obviously, they are at a slight disadvantage considering the teams they are competing against race wingless sprint cars for a living, and they do it one week a year. “These guys are just in a world of their own” says Moody of USAC’s drivers.

But, Moody feels more and more comfortable each time he does this. “When I first started running this we just took the wings off my 358 and used that stuff. Now that I use an actual wingless car I’m getting more and more comfortable. I felt really good at Lincoln last year.” Lincoln is a place Moody runs weekly in winged 410 sprint car competition, so he knows the track. “It’s fun to go there in my wingless deal and race that in front of a hometown crowd,” says Moody of the Pigeon Hills Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

The team will compete with the series definitely the first three nights including, Thursday at Williams Grove. “The Grove is the Grove, I have some laps there, but that will definitely be fun.” As far as the rest of the week, that’s undecided at this point. Saturday is between USAC at Port Royal, or winged sprint cars at Lincoln. “My winged deal is struggling a bit, I don’t want to just bail on that, but on the same token I’d like to run the wingless car. We will see how the week goes.” For Sunday at Susky, the team is expected to be in competition as long as nothing unforeseen happens. “If we get through the week without busting stuff up we will be at Susky.” Susky is extremely close to the 99m shop, but that doesn’t make it less expensive to race.

Kyle Moody knows this couldn’t be possible without the help of his amazing supporters. “Gene Franckowiak did a lot for us!!” Along with Alloy Wheel Repair and Pigeon Hill Designs, and many other great supporters. The long awaited arrival of the Moody Motorsports wingless T-Shirts has surfaced. They will be available all week long!

Those interested in following along with Moody’s Eastern Storm can do so right here presented all week long by Tye Wolfgang Promotions.

KYLE MOODY HOLDS OFF KENDALL FOR SECOND CAREER LINCOLN 410 SPRINT CAR WIN

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/7/2016 – Things finally fell into place for Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody Saturday night, resulting his second career win in the “410” sprint feature at Lincoln Speedway.

 
“This season we have a new (Maxim) race car and had some motor issues early on,” said Moody upon exiting his Dynatech Controls/ISSC #99M in victory lane, “It’s funny, earlier in the night I told a couple people that in prior weeks, we’ve been building a notebook. But when the night hits and this thing’s fast, it will all come together in one night.”
 
Handicapping placed Moody fourth for the start. He was second behind polesitter Frankie Herr (subbing for Nicole Bower) by end of the first lap, and then slid under Herr to grab the race lead exiting turn two of lap five. From there, he drove out to a two and-a-half second lead by the time the first caution flag waved for Mike Bittinger, who came to a stop in turn three of lap 15.
 
Fifth-starting Robbie Kendall and eighth-starting Austin Hogue were second and third for the restart.
 
“I did see Kendall and Hogue behind me, and I know those guys are just as quick on any given night, so I tried to mix up my restarts,” commented Moody in the two cautions and one red flag over the remainder of the race, “Luckily, the restarts held up and we’re here.”
 
The red flag started as a caution, but racing was stopped to make sure Tim Glatfelter was okay after being shaken up after striking the inside guardrail on the front stretch of lap 20.
 
On the final restart, 17th-starting Brian Montieth passed Hogue for third place, and stayed there until the checkered flew, with Moody’s margin of victory over Kendall at 2.16 seconds.
 
“This was my type of race track tonight,” said Moody, “I love a heavy race track like this. It was just fun out there.”
 
Completing the top five were Hogue and Shane Hoff, with Billy Dietrich, 15th-starting Alan Krimes, Glenndon Forsythe, Scott Fisher, and Adam Wilt rounding out the top ten.
 
Heats for the 28 410 sprinters on hand were won by Kendall, Hoff, and Danny Dietrich, with Gerard McIntyre, Jr. winning the consolation.

Moody Motorsports Gearing Up for 2016 Season

(LEWISBERRY, PA) – With the 2016 season just days away, Kyle Moody and the Moody Motorsports team are gearing up for the much anticipated “Icebreaker 30” at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania.
Moody, Lincoln Speedway’s 2015 Most Improved Driver, is happy to welcome the team’s 2015 sponsors back for another successful season. Dynatech Controls, Silver Lake, ISSC – Kanson, Pigeon Hills Design, Memtec Services, Baldwin Brothers and Lisi Shell will adorn the No. 99M again in 2016.
The team is looking forward to a strong start to the season with a switch from XXX Chassis to Maxim Chassis. With successful results at the beginning of the season, Moody and the team will be able to add more races to the schedule throughout the year. Current plans for the team include, the regular season schedule at Lincoln Speedway, as well as, select races at Susquehanna Speedway, Path Valley Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway.
Moody and JMO Motorsports car owner, Gene Franckowiak, will team up for this year’s USAC Eastern Storm. The driver of the No. 99M is no stranger to the wingless circuit when it comes to Central Pennsylvania, and Moody looks forward to a successful outing against some of the best wingless drivers in the Nation.
“I’m proud to have a chance to represent the great sponsors we had last year at the track, once again,” said Moody. “Our sponsors have become like family to us and we certainly couldn’t race as much as we do without them.
“We’re always itching to get back to the track during the off-season, but I’m really looking forward to it this year. We’re making the switch to Maxim Chassis this year and I’m looking forward to getting on the track and starting off the season strong.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to compete in most of the races in the USAC Eastern Storm the last few years. I’ve been able to hold my own in equipment that doesn’t always match up against some of the best wingless teams in the Nation. This year, our equipment will be just as stout as our competitors, and I can’t wait to see what we can do with it.”

Moody Motorsports Welcomes Two New Sponsors for 2015 Upgrades to New Facility in Off-Season

Lewisberry, PA – Moody Motorsports and driver Kyle Moody announced today that the team has added two new sponsors to the line-up for the 2015 season. Silver Lake Inn and Dynatech Controls, Inc will have primary space on the No. 99M sprint car. Also, ISSC Kanson Electronics will continue their partnership with the team this season. 

Silver Lake Inn is a restaurant and bar located in Lewsiberry, PA just under three miles from Susquehanna Speedway. The restaurant features weekly specials and entertainment. For a complete schedule or menu offering, visit silverlakeinn.net.

Dynatech Controls, Inc.is one of Pennsylvania’s premier open system integrators in providing intelligent building automation solutions. Currently, Dynatech operates out of its corporate headquarters located in Lancaster, PA. dynatechcontrols.com

With a productive off-season, the team was able to move into their brand new 960-square foot facility located in Lewisberry, PA. The increased space will allow for more productivity and storage for additional inventory. 

Moody saw victory in 2014 with a big win at Lincoln Speedway in the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial race, but the team still had its ups-and-downs during the season. 

“I’m really looking forward to the upcoming season,” said Moody. “We had a lot of exciting things happen this off-season, including adding Jason Helt to the team who will be taking the reins on the mechanical side of things.”

With the increased inventory, Moody is optimistic that the team will be able to handle a more aggressive schedule this season. 

“It was an incredible experience to pick up my first 410 win, especially the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial, but there were some nights we struggled more than we would’ve liked. Our goal this year is to get more consistent and fight for position up front each week. We’re hoping to build our inventory this year for a more aggressive schedule. As of now, Lincoln will still be our “home track”, but it would be great if we could race at any track, on any given night.”

MOODY HOLDS OFF USAC INVADER BACON FOR FIRST CAREER WIN IN LINCOLN PA SPEEDWEEK SHOW

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 6/28/2014 – Kyle Moody recovered from a rough start to come back in claim his first career 410 sprint car feature win and the $7,000 top prize in night #2 of PA Speedweek at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

After dropping to fifth on the first lap, Moody passed both USAC invader Brady Bacon and Tim Glatfelter on laps eight and nine to climb to his original starting spot.

While running third, Moody saw second-place Glenndon Forsythe bring out the red flag with a 360 airborne spin in turns three and four of lap 18. During the race stoppage, race-long leader Adam Wilt went to the pits with a flat right rear, placing Moody in the lead for the restart.

“God works in mysterious ways, doesn’t he?” said a jubilant Moody after his wing dance in victory lane, “What are the chances of losing both cars running in front of me? And not getting caught up in it was just amazing!.”

“On the start I totally fumbled up, and all those cars got by me…and I thought ‘Shoot, I don’t think I’m going to be able to get back up there,” said Moody, “There were a lot of good cars up there and I knew I had to bide my time. I knew I had a good car all night tonight. We were fighting some engine problems that were unknown, and I decided to put my head down and not worry about it…and keep running like we did.”

On his tail for the restart were Glatfelter and Bacon. Bacon caught Glatfelter for the runner-up spot with nine laps to go, and closed on the leader. But it was Moody’s night, as the ISSC/Kanson Electronics/Keener Coatings #99M crossed .72 seconds in front at the finish.

“It means everything,” said Moody of his Lincoln win, “This has been my dream since I was eight years old when I started coming here and this is it right here. A big thanks to Cory Laucks, who has made this thing a rocket ship this year. And thanks to my mom and dad and girlfriend for their support, and to a great crew. This is amazing!”

“It was great racing with Brady. He has a lot more seat time than I do. I saw him creep up to third and then second. I was watching for him. I was trying to stay smooth. That curb was crazy tonight. You could overdrive it in a heartbeat. I was watching the guys in front of me. It was slick. I just buckled down and held on.”

Seventh-starting Ryan Smith caught Glatfelter for third with two laps to go, and 23rd-starting Brian Montieth passed Glatfelter on the last lap for fourth. Sixth through tenth behind Glatfelter were Austin Hogue, 20th-starting Brent Marks, Lance Dewease, 22nd-starting Alan Krimes, and Gerard McIntyre, Jr.

A slowing track during time trials forced several top drivers to the rear of the feature field after coming out late for time trials.

Heats for the 410 sprinters were won by Wilt, Glatfelter, Moody, and Forsythe, with Steve Owings winning the B-Main. McIntyre set fast time over the 34-car field with a one lap time of 13.508 seconds (99.941 MPH).

Moody Off to Strong Start in 2014 410 Sprint Car Campaign Earning Two Top-five Finishes in Two Starts at Lincoln Speedway

Lewisberry, PA (March 23, 2014)- While there has been two different winners at Lincoln (PA) Speedway in the track’s only two races of the season, there’s only been one driver that has finished in the top-five both weekends. Kyle Moody has had two impressive runs to start the 2014 season with two fourth-place finishes in the last two weekends. 

A small team among some of sprint car racing’s best teams and drivers in the country, Moody funds his efforts on his own, with a little help from a few sponsors. With continued support from his family, you’ll see a few new faces working on the No. 99M in the pit area. Moody acknowledges that he doesn’t have as much experience as the big names that he’s racing against every week, but he feels more comfortable than ever before behind the wheel of a 410 sprint car. 

“Hopefully, the last two weekends have opened some eyes,” said Moody. “I’m very thankful for the sponsors we do have on board, ISSC Kanson Electronics, Pigeon Hill Designs, and Keener Coatings, but we could really use some additional support to continue to run for the points at Lincoln Speedway. That is our goal for now, to compete for the points Championship at Lincoln. Right now, we have one 410 motor, so if anything happens to that we’ll probably be sidelined for a few weeks unless we can get some more sponsors.”

MOODY FIRST REPEAT WINNER OF YEAR IN TRAIL-WAY INSINGER PERFORMANCE SPRING

HANOVER, PA , 5/25/12 - "What a race, huh?"

So said Kyle Moody after becoming Trail-Way's first repeat winner in the 30-lap Insinger Performance "358" Spring Championship Friday night.

Moody claimed the $1,200 top prize after drawing the #1 pill, starting on the pole, and leading every lap, despite repeated challenges from several competitors over numerous caution flags during the event.

"I didn't know where everybody was," said Moody upon exiting his Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show #99M in victory lane, "When you're the leader, you're a sitting duck. This place is hard!"

The race-long challenges came from several drivers in heavy lapped traffic over the first 27 laps. First it was third-starting Cris Eash, who ran second until his tire starting losing pressure after contact with Austin Hogue while battling for position following a 28th-lap restart. Hogue took advantage of Eash's misfortune to move into second as Eash dropped back and eventually bobbled, spun sideways, and collected four other cars in turns one and two of the final lap.

Moody pulled away on the last-lap dash, crossing a half-second in front of Hogue.

The top ten cars raced nose-to-tail through heavy lapped traffic for the final third of the race. Brad McClelland came from ninth starting spot to finish third, with Mike Bittinger and 12th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh completing the top five. Sixth through tenth were Tim Wagaman, Steve Owings, Randy Whisler, Brian Allman, and hard charger Wes Irwin (who started 24th).

Heats for the 28 "358" Sprints were won by Moody, Joe Trone, Jr., and Hogue, with Ryan Wilson winning the consolation.

Moody Earns First ‘358’ Win of 2012, New Opportunity

Season Debut in ‘410’ Series Set for Saturday at Lincoln Speedway

Lewisberry, Penn. (April 27, 2012) – Kyle Moody and the Moody Motorsports team are well on their way to a successful 2012 campaign. With just a little over a month into the season, the team has already put the No. 99M Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show (ESOS) 358 sprinter in victory lane during the season opener at Trail-way Speedway.  It is the fourth win for Moody in the 358 sprint car division and his first at the track.

In seven starts this season, Moody has accumulated one win, three top-fives and five top-10 finishes.  He is currently first in points at Trail-way Speedway and eighth in points at Lincoln Speedway, after missing a race due to an on-track incident the weekend before.   Moody is currently fourth in the Central PA 358 Series point standings, 124 points behind leader Pat Cannon and 14 points behind third-place Jeff Rohrbaugh.

“It is amazing to get our first win at Trail-ways,” said Moody.  “We’ve been wanting that one for a while.  It was the only track that we run on a regular basis that we hadn’t won at.  We had debated whether we wanted to go to Williams Grove (Speedway) and at the last minute decided to go to Trail-ways, I’m glad we did.  It was definitely worth it to get the monkey off of our back.”

Another exciting opportunity for Moody this season will be his debut in the No. 175 410 sprint car owned by Tony Pietrofitta.  The team will be a regular at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday nights, starting this weekend.  The No. 99M ESOS 358 sprinter will still see action on Friday nights and special ‘358’ shows.

Moody is ready for an opportunity in the ‘410’ ranks, “I can’t wait to jump in the seat of the No. 175 this weekend,” he said.  “Tony and I talked a couple of times on the phone but we finally got the chance to meet last week and I think that we will work really well together.  I’m really lucky to get this opportunity and I’m grateful to Tony for having faith in me.  I think it says a lot about our program and sponsors on the ‘358’ side.  We’ve worked really hard and have gotten tremendous support from sponsors and fans and I think that this opportunity is proof of that.”

Moody Motorsports Gears Up for 2012, Reflects on 2011 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show Returns as Primary Sponsor for 99M

Lewisberry, Pa. (January 4, 2011) – ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, this popular cliche’ is exactly what Kyle Moody and Chris O’Hara, Event Director for the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, thought when discussing plans for the 2012 season.  The partnership started half-way through the 2011 season and they both agree that it works.

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show is the largest consumer event of its kind in North America, held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa. It attracts outdoor sports enthusiast from around the country to view hunting and fishing products, plan outdoor sport and camping vacations, shop for fishing boats, fishing tackle and hunting gear, and ATVs, and participate in a wide range of sport-related contests and family entertainment offerings. Moody’s car will be on display at the 2012 show, which lasts from February 4-12.

“We are really excited to be able to sponsor Kyle and his team again in 2012,” said O’Hara. “The outdoor industry and racing go hand-and-hand, a lot of our customers are race fans so it only makes sense for us to gain exposure in one of our prime markets. I’m looking forward to Kyle bringing his car to the show in February, we’re really hoping that it helps get his name out to the fans that may not already know who he is.”

The 99M will return to the 358 sprint car division at Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways as well as participate in special races throughout the year. Elmer Cotner will return as head mechanic for the Eastern Sports and Outdoor show sprinter.

“I’m looking forward to 2012 and I’m really honored to have the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show back on the car,” said Moody. “We were able to finish the 2011 season strong with a fifth place finish at Susquehanna Speedway and I’m really proud of our solid run during the USAC Eastern Storm. I think we definitely grew a lot as a team and while we had good runs we still weren’t able to pull off a win, that’s our main goal for this season. Every team goes through their ups and downs on their way to success and I have a good feeling about our success in 2012.”

While the team is happy to have them back in 2012, The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show isn’t the only sponsor that has supported the team throughout the years, Keener Coatings, Ressler Contracting, Greg Gdovin Concrete Contractors, Industrial Screen Printers of York, Memtec Services, Quaker Race Garage, Kiezer Aluminum Wheels, and Rucker Computer Solutions have all played a major role in keeping the 99M on the track.

Moody Motorsports is extremely grateful for all of its sponsors; however, the team still needs additional help for the 2012 season. If you are interested in sponsoring Moody and the No. 99M please contact him at (717) 586-6724 or cagekart99@aol.com.

You can get updates on the team on Twitter by following @MoodyMotorsport, on Facebook under Moody Motorsports or on www.kylemoody.net. For more information on the Eastern Sports and Outdoor show visit www.easternsportshow.com or find them on Facebook.

Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show to Sponsor Kyle Moody for Remainder of the 2011 Season

Lewisberry, Penn. (June 16, 2011) - The No. 99M 358 sprint car driven by Kyle Moody will have a new look in the weeks ahead. The team has announced that the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show will be featured on the top wing and hood of the sprinter for the remainder of the 2011 season.

Moody is coming off of an impressive stint with the United States Auto Club Series (USAC) during its Amsoil National Sprint Car “Eastern Storm” week. He competed among the best 410 wingless sprint car drivers in the country, doing so with his own 358 cubic inch horsepower power plant. In the races, Moody earned one top-10, a 13th and 16th-place finishes. However, Moody was involved in an accident late in the week that had sidelined his car the following two race weekends.

“This couldn’t have come at a better time for us,” says Moody. “We were thrilled with our results during the USAC Eastern Storm, especially since we were the only 358 team out there. We just had some misfortune at the end of that week that has put us behind a bit.”

“Chris O’Hara, from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, came up to me at one of the USAC races and said he might be able to help me out for the rest of the season. Right now, it’s what our team needs to be able to get up front and start winning races. We’ve been close a couple of times, but with this sponsorship we’ll be able to get back running strong again and challenge for wins.”

“We are using some of the money from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show sponsorship to rebuild the engine. Belmit Development is rebuilding it for us and they have been helping us out a lot also so we can back out on the track. We weren’t sure how we were going to make all of it work before but I’m so grateful for everyone that has stepped up to the plate to help us out.”

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor show is the largest consumer event of its kind in North America, held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Penn. It attracts outdoor sports enthusiast from around the country to view hunting and fishing products, plan outdoor sport and camping vacations, shop for fishing boats, RVs, SUVs, motorcycles and ATVs, and participate in a wide range of sport-related contests and family entertainment offerings. Moody’s car will be on display at the 2012 show, which lasts from February 4-12. For more information on the Eastern Sports and Outdoor show visit www.easternsportshow.com 

“We’re really excited to have Kyle represent the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show for the rest of this season,” says Chris O’Hara, event director for the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show. I’ve gotten to know him and his family through racing and have been impressed with him from the very beginning. Not only does he have talent but he has put the time and hard work in to get to where he is today. There are only good things to come for him and we can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Moody has been racing since he was nine years old. He started out in go-karts and moved through the ranks of the micro-sprint divisions until finally moving to a full-sized sprint car in 2009. His first full-season in a 358 sprint car, he earned his first win at Williams Grove Speedway after just his fourth time racing at the track and went on to win two more races that year at Lincoln Speedway. He finished the season 10th in points at Lincoln Speedway where he was also awarded Rookie of The Year. Moody started 2010 off in a 410 sprint car, earning three heat race wins, but went back to racing in the 358 division early in the season. He finished 12th in points at Williams Grove Speedway and had numerous top-5 finishes.
