Billy Moyer Claims Two Victories During Busy Speedweeks; Bama Bash
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) continued their strong
start to 2014 during "Speedweeks" in the Sunshine State of
Florida from February 10-22. Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer
competed in nine total feature events at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton,
Florida and Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida and racked-up
two victories, four Top Fives, and six Top Tens. Both trips to victory
lane occurred at East Bay and Billy now has 23 career 'Winternationals'
wins to his credit.
On February 11 at the "Clay by the Bay," Billy picked up
career victory #777, as he worked his way past leader Steve Francis
on the 22nd circuit and led the final four laps to grab the $5,000 payday.
The Batesville, Arkansas legend bested Francis, Brandon Sheppard, Eddie
Carrier, Jr., and Don O'Neal in the Tuesday night affair at East Bay.
Billy also enjoyed the spoils of victory on Friday, February 14, as
he started the 50-lapper from the pole position and led the exciting
race on three different occasions. The popular driver known as "Mr.
Smooth" then grabbed the point for good on lap 44 from John Blankenship
and led the remainder of the distance to claim the $10,000 top prize
over Blankenship, Scott Bloomquist, Don O'Neal, and Gregg Satterlee!
Other top five "Speedweeks" performances for the #21 team
came in front of a LIVE MAVTV television audience at East Bay on February
13 and in a $10,000 to win UMP DIRTcar Series battle at Volusia on February
19. Billy led the first 37 circuits in the Thursday televised showdown
at EBRP before settling for a strong runner-up performance behind only
victor Dennis Erb, Jr., while he paced the stellar field for the first
nineteen circuits at VSP last Wednesday before eventually winding up
fifth behind only winner Scott Bloomquist, Dale McDowell, Eric Wells,
and Darrell Lanigan. You can read a detailed race-by-race recap from
