ELGIN, ON – After J-K and S-K, most youngsters officially begin school at the age of six.
Brennan Moore started his racing education a year earlier than that, taking his first karting laps at just five. Fast forward to the 2021 season at Brockville Ontario Speedway and Cornwall Motor Speedway where the second-generation speedster made his debut in the Novice Sportsman division.
Inheriting the racing gene from his father Adam Moore – a former Sportsman-Modified track champion and 358 Modified runner at the popular Temperance Lake Road oval – the 14-year-old grade nine student at Rideau District High School is looking to get his feet wet in stock car racing as he takes the next steps of his motorsport’s development.
“It was something that my parents and I had talked about, so we figured this was as good a time as any,” said the driver who scored multiple main event wins and series championships during his karting career. “There will still be a kart racer in the family, as my brother Dylan continues to chase checkered flags in his No. 35D. We are a very active family as far as being around the different tracks are concerned and my Mom and Dad have always been very supportive of our careers.”
Like any other talented young racer making the transition to a new division, Brennan Moore hasn’t complicated the issue by setting any immediate goals he hopes to accomplish. He has already scored qualifying heat wins Saturday, July 10th at Brockville and Sunday, July 25 at Cornwall and looks to add more strong finishes to his resume, while learning as much as he can about weekly stock car racing.
A fan of Martin Truex Jr., Brennan would like to race as much as possible in the coming years. He’d love to race a Big Block Modified or maybe move to NASCAR one day.
With a Novice Sportsman racecar and a couple karts in their arsenal, the team comprised of the driver’s parents Adam and Carrie Moore, younger brother Dylan, grandfathers Dave Gamble and Evan Moore, uncles Warren Jackson, Jay Phalen and cousin Cooper Phalen are kept busy working in the shop to keep the team rolling. Moore Motorsports appreciates the support of their 2021 sponsorship partners Lyons Goodfellow Furniture, Ryan’s Communication, Four-o-One Electric, The Canadian Tradition, Barry Baker Carpentry, Canadian Wollastonite and Epicure – Carrie’s Farmhouse Pantry.
“I love the speed and adrenaline rush that comes with racing,” said the young speedster who enjoys four-wheeling, hunting and fishing in his spare time. “It’s also great to carry-on the tradition of having a Canadian flag on the racecar that started with my father. My family, fans and friends can always find our car on the track. Hopefully at the front of the pack.”
