Billy Moyer Records Second Triumph of 2016 in Douglas Dodge 40
at Farmer City!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Batesville, Arkansas Hall of Famer Billy Moyer
scored his second victory of the 2016 racing season on Friday night,
May 6 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois! Billy clicked
off the third quickest lap in his group during the qualifying session
prior to bagging a heat race triumph. Billy then started from the pole
in the 'Douglas Dodge 40' and led the final half of the 40-lap race
to record the $5,000 windfall over Brandon Sheppard, Kevin Weaver, Dennis
Erb, Jr., and Devin Gilpin!
A short trip to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois
then greeted the #21 team on Saturday evening, as another MARS DIRTcar
Series and American Late Model Series (ALMS) co-sanctioned event took
center stage. Billy knocked down the second fastest time overall during
qualifying and later won his heat race in preliminary action. After
rolling off from the inside of the second row in the $10,000 to win
'FALS Frenzy,' the popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" bolted
up to second during the 50-lapper before eventually settling for a solid
fifth place performance behind only winner Bobby Pierce, Earl Pearson,
Jr., Dennis Erb, Jr., and Brandon Sheppard. Full results from both weekend
shows in the Land of Lincoln can be found online at www.marsracingseries.com.
"I've always enjoyed coming up to the Midwest and racing at places
like Farmer City and Fairbury," quoted Moyer following his strong
weekend. "They are usually really racy tracks and last weekend
was no exception. I am really happy with how we are running and the
way (Billy Moyer) Junior and our other Billy Moyer Victory Race Cars
customers are performing. The research and development stuff is on me,
so we just have to get out there and tweak on these things some more.
Hopefully, we can enjoy a couple more solid runs this weekend at Dubuque
and Deer Creek!"
After scouring schedules and watching the weather all week, the Billy
Moyer Racing (BMR) team made the decision earlier today to travel to
the states of Iowa and Minnesota over the upcoming May 13-14 weekend.
The Lucas Oil MLRA Series will preside over a pair of $5,000 to win
battles on Friday evening at Dubuque Speedway in Dubuque, Iowa and on
Saturday night at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota. Additional
