Billy Moyer Readies for Dirt Late Model Dream After Wheatland &
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team found themselves
at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri and the Tri-City Speedway
in Granite City, Illinois over the May 23-26 weekend. The long holiday
weekend kicked off with a $5,000 to win Lucas Oil MLRA Series program
on Thursday night at Wheatland. Billy Moyer won his heat race in preliminary
action and later placed sixth in the 40-lap feature event behind only
winner Jimmy Owens, Tyler Reddick, Steve Shaver, Tony Jackson, Jr.,
and Jack Sullivan.
Things really heated up on Friday evening at the pristine 3/8-mile
Wheatland facility, as the 21st Annual 'Show-Me 100' took center stage.
Billy laid down the twelfth fastest lap in Group B during Lucas Oil
Late Model Dirt Series qualifying and later placed fourth in his heat
race. Following a B-Main triumph on Saturday, Billy started the $30,000
to win 'Show-Me 100' from the inside of the eleventh row. Unfortunately,
the Batesville, Arkansas Hall of Famer was an early retiree in the 100-lapper
and wound up twenty-eighth in the final rundown.
The #21 team then wrapped up the Memorial Day weekend on Sunday at
Granite City, as the annual 'Budweiser 50' boasted a $10,000 top prize.
Billy timed in second quickest in his group during UMP DIRTcar Series
qualifying and grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot in his heat
race despite getting involved in an incident. "Mr. Smooth"
was caught up in another early scramble during the 50-lap main event
and he eventually retired in the twenty-first position. Full results
from the action-packed weekend can be accessed online at www.dirtondirt.com.
Billy and his famed #21 BMR team now plan to take the upcoming May
31-June 1 weekend off from Dirt Late Model competition to prepare for
the 19th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream' by Ferris Commercial Mowers.
The famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio will once again play host
to the sport's richest first place prize on Saturday, June 8, as a $100,000
paycheck will be in the balance. However, in a new twist, Twin 25 lap
feature events will be held on both Thursday ($2,500 to win each) and
Friday ($5,000 to win each) leading up to Saturday's normal format.
The three-day crown jewel spectacular on June 6-8 now boasts a potential
31 races and 567 laps, with a posted payoff of $304,575.00. Additional
