Billy Moyer Nabs First Win of 2014 Season During Winter Extreme;
El Paso Next!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) kicked off their 2014
racing season from January 11-19 at the Tucson International Raceway,
as the six-race 'Winter Extreme' miniseries took place at the Tucson,
Arizona facility. For the first time, the National Dirt Racing League
(NDRL) presided over the dirt-slinging action at TIR and sixty-five
different drivers competed in at least one event in the Copper State.
Billy Moyer, who debuted a new Moyer Xtreme by Longhorn racecar, was
one of only three drivers to transfer into each of the six main events
during the nine-day burst of racing in Tucson.
Billy's 2014 'Winter Extreme' was highlighted by a feature win on Wednesday
night, January 15. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer laid down the fastest
lap in his group during NDRL time trials last Wednesday and later scored
the victory in his heat race. After drawing the outside of the front
row for the start of the 30-lap A-Main, Billy grabbed the early race
lead and held off all challenges to earn the $3,000 payday. "Mr.
Smooth" picked up his twelfth career Arizona January triumph over
Brandon Sheppard, Chase Junghans, Jimmy Mars, and Chris Simpson!
The Batesville, Arkansas hotshoe also nabbed two more podium finishes,
as he was runner-up in the $3,000 to win opener on Saturday, January
11 and third in the $3,000 to win showdown on Friday, January 17. Billy
also finished seventh on January 12 and twenty-third on January 18,
while he was credited with a seventeenth place effort in the $10,000
to win 'Winter Extreme' finale on Sunday, January 19. You can read a

Raceway by pointing your web browser to www.BillyMoyer.com.
"I would say that our debut with the Moyer Xtreme by Longhorn
cars were a success with both me and Junior picking up wins in Tucson,"
stated Moyer. "We didn't finish the week like I had hoped, but
we are still tuning on these hotrods and figuring out what the cars
need in certain conditions. That is one of the reasons why I like coming
to deals like Tucson and El Paso where you have multiple opportunities
early in the season to work on your stuff."
Billy, who was the inaugural 2013 NDRL Champion, will now set his sights
on the El Paso Speedway Park in El Paso, Texas. The NDRL tour will once
again sanction the festivities at El Paso, as the 'Battle at the Border'
will be made up of a trio of programs from January 24-26. Friday's opener
at EPSP will pay $3,000 to win, while Saturday and Sunday's extravaganzas
will both be headlined by $5,000 winning purses. All of the action will
be broadcast live on Pay-Per-View at www.DirtonDirt.com.
