Billy Moyer Nabs First Victory of 2017 in Wild West Shootout at Arizona Speedway!

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) As has been the norm for much of the last decade, Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) was a fixture in Arizona to start their racing season. The 11th edition of the 'Wild West Shootout' took place for the first time at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Arizona from January 7-15. Following a pair of twelfth place efforts to kick off the six-race miniseries, Billy Moyer turned up the heat on the competition on Wednesday, January 11 to score his record 13th career early season win in the Copper State!

Billy knocked down the fastest lap in his group during qualifying last Wednesday before grabbing the win in heat race action. After drawing the fourth starting spot prior to the drop of the green flag in the 30-lap headliner, Billy stormed to the front to grab the point on lap nine and then held off all challenges to score the $5,000 payday for victory #817 of his illustrious career. Following his famed #21 machine to the checkers were Chris Simpson, Bobby Pierce, Jimmy Mars, and Terry Phillips!

On Friday night, January 13, which turned out to be the final event of the 'Wild West Shootout,' the popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" turned in another strong performance at Arizona Speedway. Billy laid down the quickest lap in his group during the time trial session prior to scoring a triumph in his loaded heat race. After rolling off from the pole position in the 30-lapper and leading the first couple of circuits, the Batesville, Arkansas Hall of Famer wound up third in the final finishing order of the $5,000 to win affair behind only race winner Bobby Pierce and runner-up Chris Simpson. The final two shows were then wiped out by inclement weather on Saturday and Sunday, January 14-15 and were not rescheduled.

The BMR team had plans to stay out west and compete in this weekend's (January 20-22) inaugural 'Short Track Shootout' at Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, New Mexico. However, wet conditions with a forecast for high winds and cold temperatures have pushed back the three-race weekend until March 17-19. At this time, Billy does not know when or where he will race next, but has no plans of competing during "Speedweeks" in Georgia and Florida during the month of February.
