World of Outlaws History: Devin Moran is carrying on the family legacy in Late Model racing by building on to what his father started in the early 1980s. The 2017 season was Moran’s first time running as a full-time driver with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series, and it was a successful one. Moran collected two Series wins during his rookie season– the first being at Atomic Speedway on May 26 followed by Georgetown Speedway on Aug. 17. The young driver from Dresden, OH joined only two other drivers in Series history that were able to collect two wins during their rookie season. Moran enters his sophomore season with the Outlaws in an effort to further advance his career on the national stage. 


What car do you drive when you're not in your racecar?

“I drive a white Oldesmobile Aurora, some old grandma car just because it’s cheap and it get’s me places and it’s good on gas. It gets me from A to B. I actually bought it off of my grandma so it’s a purebred grandma car. I’ve driven all over the country with (my brother) Wylie.”

If you could listen to music while racing, would you, and what would it be?

“I’ve actually thought about that, but I’ve never done it! I don’t know if I would be better with some heavy Rock’n’Roll or some kind of Opera that would really make me focus while I was driving. It could go bad or it could go good but I’m not going to find out anytime soon though. I would probably start singing like some Taylor Swift in the middle of a race and would end up getting passed or something.”

What’s racing memory stands out to you?

“My first year I raced I was only 14, and it was only like my fifth or sixth race ever, and I was leading the race. I led until the white flag, and my dad passed me on the white flag lap. I ended up running second. After the race he was kidding around with me, and he said, ‘You know, one day you’ll be able to beat me, so I have to get as many wins out of this that I can.’ He wasn’t taking it easy on me even in my first year of racing. The next two years after that I still could never beat him, and I ran second to him for like 10 races in a row. They started calling me Deuce. so I was like, ‘I got to beat this old man,’ and I finally went out and beat him. I ran first, and he ran third, so I double-dipped on him, but it was fun while it lasted.”
