The MRA opened its season this past weekend in Byers, CO at High Plains Raceway with great attendance. Highlighting the event was Number 945, Shannon Moham, bringing home 8 race wins. Moham, MRA’s Clubman Class Champion, is known for his “ironman” tactics during the race season. It isn’t uncommon for Moham to compete in 8-12 races in one race weekend, but winning eight of them is extraordinary for anyone!! Moham states, “It’s not the first time I’ve run so many races, but it is the first time I’ve won all but one and I’m pretty proud of that!” Saturday’s wins included Lightweight GP, LW Endurance, and HW Endurance. Come Sunday, Moham came in first in Middleweight Superbike, Modern Vintage GTU, Supertwins GTU, Heavyweight Superbike, and the premier class Race of the Rockies GTU!
With approximately 10 years of racing under his belt, he can find his way around a track. Racers like Shannon Moham know that it’s the sponsors who make all the difference in a race season– “I couldn’t have done it without the support of all my amazing sponsors. Race Tech has been a huge part of my success in racing. They build an amazing shock and their suspension is the best around. Huge thanks go out to Sydney and Michelle at Race Tech for taking such great care of us”. Moham also noted, “We made a change to Dunlop tires this year, and I have to say, it seems to have been the right move. They make an exceptional tire that held up extremely well the entire weekend, and I want to give a big shout out to Steve Mils for helping us. I’m energized to be on Dunlop tires and to see where we go this year.” “Special thanks to Mark with Renegade Fuel,” says Moham. “He set us up with their top of the line fuel, SX4 and SX4 Plus, and it makes a difference. Renegade definitely gives you that extra horsepower.”
Shannon also sends out sincere appreciation to the following: Nordic Nursing, Woodcraft, Vortex, GPR Stabilizer, Galfer, Lockhart Phillips, Silkolene, Ogio, Pit Bull, 35 Motorsports, Rex at Tri City Cycle, Vickery Motorsports, K&N, Bazzaz Performance, Motonation, Rocky Mountain Photo, Racing Batteries USA, Worldwide Bearings, Pit Posse, his wife Segren, daughter Denver, Mom, and the Papajohns.
Next up is Round 2 at PPIR in Fountain, CO, May 19th and 20th. Shannon Moham plans on being there and, has obviously set the bar high!
