WINS AT I-55; CLOSE SECOND AT FARMER CITY!
15, 2018 --- Dirt Late
Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer claimed his second feature win of
the 2018 racing season on Saturday evening, May 12 in an impromptu
trip to Federated Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri! After the
$10,000 to win 'FALS Frenzy' special was rained-out early in the
afternoon at Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois,
Billy wound up at Pevely to enter the Super Late Model weekly event.
Billy started third and finished third in his heat race, but later
stormed to the front in the feature from his sixth starting position.

A night earlier on Friday, May 11, a $10,000 top prize
was on the line in the 'Farmer City 74' at Farmer City Raceway in
Farmer City, Illinois. Billy scored the victory in his loaded heat
race to earn the pole position in the MARS Racing Series-sanctioned
main event. During the course of the 74-lap contest, the popular
driver known as "Mr. Smooth" led the first 73 circuits
before his familiar #21 machine was passed coming off of turn four
by eventual winner Shannon Babb. In a photo finish, Billy was forced
to settle for a very close runner-up performance in the 'Farmer
City 74.' Full results from both weekend shows can be viewed online
Following the impressive one-two weekend finish, the Billy Moyer
Racing (BMR) team is slated to take the upcoming May 18-19 weekend
off to build a new Victory Race Car by Billy Moyer. The next event
on their racing calendar will be the 26th Annual Lucas Oil 'Show-Me
100' at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri from May 24-26.
A pair of $6,000 to win preliminary events on Thursday and Friday
of Memorial Day weekend will set the stage for Saturday's grand
finale, which boasts a whopping $30,000 payday. Billy is a three-time
winner of the storied 'Show-Me 100,' as he grabbed the checkers
in the crown jewel event in 1993, 1994, and 1996 when it was held
at West Plains Motor Speedway in West Plains, Missouri. Additional
