Billy Moyer's trip to Louisiana this weekend will mark his first event
since the conclusion of his "Speedweeks 2013" journey. From
February 9-23, Billy entered a total of thirteen Dirt Late Model events
at five different venues across Georgia and Florida. The Batesville,
Arkansas Hall of Famer racked up one feature win, four Top Fives, and
five Top Tens during his stint in the southeast.
His trip to victory lane came during the annual 'UNOH DIRTcar Nationals'
at the Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida on Friday, February
22. After laying down the fastest lap in Group B during the World of
Outlaws Late Model Series qualifying session, Billy went on to win his
heat race and later drew the number three starting spot for the 50-lapper.
"Mr. Smooth" then took the lead from Eric Wells on the eleventh
circuit and raced to the $10,000 triumph over Rick Eckert, Darrell Lanigan,
Dennis Erb, Jr., and Shane Clanton!
Aside from posting his 19th career 'UNOH DIRTcar Nationals' victory,
Billy also recorded a third and a fourth place finish during the weeklong
festivities at the Daytona Beach area speedplant. His other top five
performance during "Speedweeks" came on February 10 at the
North Florida Speedway in Lake City, Florida, where he finished a solid
fifth in a $5,000 to win UMP showdown. You can read a race-by-race recap
