off the fourth quickest time in Group A during qualifying, won his
heat race, and later led all but one circuit in the first 49 laps
of the main event. In the final six laps, Billy and eventual winner
Shannon Babb traded the point on five different occasions before
"Mr. Smooth" settled for an impressive runner-up performance
in the action-packed thriller.

session prior to finishing second in heat race action. After starting
fourth on the grid in the 40-lap headliner, Billy took the lead

time trials before grabbing the third transfer spot through his
heat race. After starting the 40-lapper from the inside of the fifth
row, Billy was able to advance up to sixth on the one-groove racing
surface to trail only winner Billy Drake, Jason Feger, Brian Shirley,
Billy Moyer, Jr., and Brandon Thirlby.

IN DREAM PRELIM AT ELDORA
10, 2018 --- One of
the sport's richest events was held from June 7-9 at the hallowed
Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, as 78 competitors converged at
the 1/2-mile speedplant to do battle in 'Dream XXIV.' Following
a washout on Thursday night, both preliminary shows were held on
Friday. In the $5,000 to win prelim during the afternoon, Billy
Moyer won his heat race in preliminary action prior to slipping
back to tenth in the 25-lap sprint. Later that evening in the $10,000
to win prelim, Billy placed fourth in his heat race and sixteenth
in the 25-lapper. On Saturday in the grand finale, which once again
boasted a $100,000 payday, Billy was unfortunately not able to transfer
into the 100-lap crown jewel race after finishing seventh in his
stacked heat race and suffering a flat tire in his B-Main. Full
