Drivers Using Moser Products Have Winning Seasons!
Moser Engineering has always been proud of our connections to the sportsman ranks. We see sportsman drivers putting on clinics every weekend throughout the racing season that even the pro classes could learn from. So when possible we like to take time to recognize those drivers who achieve success and help promote Moser Engineering’s winning product line. With that in mind we wanted to take a moment to recognize 3 such drivers who have had an amazing year.
Justin Lamb won his first NHRA Stock Eliminator National Championship title this year running his 1970 Chevrolet Camaro with Moser Engineering supplied rear components. He was able to surpass Drew Skillman at the Las Vegas event for the national title while also winning the Super Stock trophy at the same time in his Chevy Cobalt.
Slate Cummings won his third straight division 4 Super Stock crown this year to his already impressive list of titles and wins. Slate drives along with brother Britt, father Larry Cummings who fields the six car team and family friend and driver Jody “Cool” Simoneaux. All four are championship drivers themselves and field competitive cars every time they unload. Slate also had a very productive season taking in some big dollar bracket races to help pad the productive season.
