Billy Moyer Dominates Wild West Shootout with Three Victories;
Preps for Speedweeks!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team recently returned
home to their Batesville, Arkansas race shop following a 2700 mile round
trip visit to the USA Raceway in Tucson, Arizona. For the third straight
year, Billy Moyer kicked off his racing season in Tucson, as he entered
all six races during the annual 'Wild West Shootout' from January 14-22.
Billy racked up three victories during his stint out west, which now
makes him the all-time leader in 'Wild West Shootout' wins with a total
Each of Billy's triumphs at the USA Raceway were worth $3,000 each.
The Batesville, Arkansas Hall of Famer won the miniseries opener on
January 14 over Will Vaught, Shannon Babb, Jimmy Mars, and Tim McCreadie.
He then reached victory lane on Friday, January 20 by defeating Tim
McCreadie, Will Vaught, Brad Looney, and Shannon Babb. Billy's third
and final win of the 'Wild West Shootout' came on Saturday, January
21 when he beat Jeff Provinzino, Jon Kirby, Terry Phillips, and Don
Shaw to the checkers.
The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" had several near-misses
as well. He finished a strong runner-up on Wednesday night, January
18 behind only winner Don O'Neal. Billy was then leading the $10,000
to win 'Bill Cheesbourg Memorial' on Sunday, January 22 when a mechanical
failure caused him to retire from the race with only ten circuits remaining.

"We had a strong trip out to Tucson this year, but it would have
sure been nice to have won that $10,000 finale too," exclaimed
Moyer today in a telephone conversation. "It was good to get those
three wins, but that final race is where you can make it worth your
while money-wise to go out there. I am really excited about how our
car feels right now though. We built that car at the end of last year
and tweaked on it some over the off-season. It has that same feel, if
not even a little better, than that 2010 car that won all those races.
So, that definitely has me excited and ready to go racing this year!"
Billy Moyer Racing will comb through their equipment after competing
in Tucson and start preparing for "Speedweeks 2012" in Georgia
and Florida. Billy has committed to competing at the Screven Motor Speedway
in Sylvania, Georgia, the Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida, and
the Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida from February 10-25.
In all and weather pending, Billy will enter ten high-profile events
in the Southeast, all sanctioned by either the World of Outlaws Late
Model Series or the UMP DIRTcar Series.
