Rocky Moran, Jr.
|BIRTHDATE||January 14, 1980|
|RESIDENCE||Ladera Ranch, California|
Rocky Moran Jr. raced with GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing early in the team’s GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series career, including the No. 99’s first attempt at the Rolex 24 At Daytona in 2006, finishing 13th co-driving with Alex Gurney, Jimmy Vasser and Bob Stallings. Later that year, Moran Jr. was uninjured when he was caught up in multi-car, front-straight accident while driving the No. 99 in the Grand Prix of Long Beach, one race prior to Jon Fogarty joining GAINSCO fulltime.
Moran Jr. is still racing today and most recently drove a Jaguar XKR GT in American Le Mans Series (ALMS) competition in 2011. He has been racing for more than 20 years after beginning in go-kart competition in 1990 at the age of 10. Moran Jr. had driven or tested in a variety of open-wheel, sports car and stock car series, including the Barber Dodge Pro Series, Formula Palmer Audi, Toyota Atlantic, Indy Lights and several different levels of Formula Ford, go-karts and Late Model and NASCAR stock cars.
Like his former GAINSCO teammate Gurney, Moran Jr. is the son of an accomplished California road racing driver. His father Rocky Moran raced and won in IMSA GTP competition with Dan Gurney’s All American Racers (AAR). The Morans also built Moran Raceway in 2002, which is billed as the largest and fastest go-kart track in the world.
