Billy Moyer Charges to Podium Finish at Springfield; Readies for
Bad Boy 98
(BATSVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team returned to
Dirt Late Model competition over the May 13-14 weekend in the states
of Iowa and Missouri. On Friday night, the 34 Raceway in West Burlington,
Iowa played host to a $10,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
showdown. Billy Moyer grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot in
his stacked heat race, which earned him the rights to the thirteenth
starting spot in the 50-lap main event. Unfortunately, Billy brought
out an early caution flag on the seventh circuit and retired from the
race in the twenty-sixth position.
Things went much smoother for the #21 team on Saturday evening at the
Springfield Raceway in Springfield, Missouri. The MARS DIRTcar Series
and Lucas Oil MLRA Series co-sanctioned the annual 'John Kuntz Memorial'
and a $3,000 winner's check was on the line. Billy ran fourth in his
heat race, but later won his B-Main to gain access into the 40-lap feature
event. After starting sixteenth on the grid, the Batesville, Arkansas
native blitzed through the talented field to finish third in the final
rundown behind only winner Al Purkey and runner-up Terry Phillips. Full
results from both weekend shows can be viewed online at www.dirtondirt.com.
Up next for the BMR team will be a trip to the nearby Batesville Motor
Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas on May 20-21 for the inaugural running
of the 'Bad Boy Mowers 98.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will
sanction the unique two-day extravaganza, which kicks off on Friday
night with qualifying and heat race action. Consolation races and the
98-lap main event will then headline Saturday's portion of the program.
The cameras of the SPEED Channel will be in Batesville this weekend
to tape all of the wheel-to-wheel competition for broadcast on June
12. Billy will be gunning for the $10,000 winner's check, along with
the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro that will be given to the victor as a trophy.
