Kenny Moreland posted his career first late model victory on Saturday in the 5th annual Red Nininger Memorial and Hagerstown/Winchester Shootout 35-lap event at Hagerstown Speedaway.

“Anytime you can win a race that represents someone that meant so much to the sport, it’s awesome,’ Moreland said. “I never really knew him. I’m sure dad did. I’m sure he was a real good guy. I’m proud to win a race that represents him.”

Moreland, of Waldorf, Md., overtook Steve Axtell Jr., on the 22nd lap and posted the win by 1.708 seconds.

Jamie Lathroum, of Mechanicsville, Md., was the overall points champion of the Shootout Series and Nininger Memorial. Lathroum won an additional $1,000 posted by Glenn Nininger of Nininger’s Tire and Auto.

Gregg Satterlee finished third, followed by Austin Hubbard and Ronnie DeHaven completing the front five. Lathroum, who needed to replace a rear axle, qualified 21st and finished sixth.

Steve Lowery of Chambersburg, Pa., patiently waited and took the lead in the final two laps to win the Ernie D’s pure stocks for his first of the season.
