Rocky Moran, Sr. (born February 3, 1950 in Pasadena, California) is a retired American race car driver. Moran, Sr. started three Indianapolis 500-mile (800 km) races (1988, 1989, and 1990 Indianapolis 500) with a best finish of 14th in 1989.[1]

Moran also teamed with P. J. Jones and Mark Dismore to win the 1993 24 Hours of Daytona event.[2]

Moran is the father of racer Rocky Moran, Jr.. With his son, Moran, Sr. opened the Moran Raceway kart track in Beaumont, California in June 2003.[3] One mile in length the track boasted 19 turns, 860 ft. long straight, and a top speed by 125cc shifter karts of nearly 100 mph. There were six different track configurations; however, most preferred to run the full distance. In 2007, the track was closed.
