Billy Moyer Continues on UMP Summer Nationals Trail this Week in
Iowa and Illinois
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team snaked through
the states of Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin from June 10-13 to enter
the first four events on the grueling UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour.
Things kicked off last Wednesday at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown,
Indiana with the $5,000 to win 'Hoosier Dirt Classic.' Billy Moyer won
his heat race and later led laps 3-31 of the 40-lap main event. He was
passed in heavy lapped traffic by eventual winner Dennis Erb, Jr. and
Billy was forced to settle for a strong runner-up performance in the
series lid lifter.
At Kankakee County Speedway in Kankakee, Illinois on Thursday evening,
another $5,000 top prize was on the line. Billy once again won his heat
race in preliminary action, but suffered an untimely flat tire on lap
35 of the headliner. The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth"
returned to the track with fresh rubber and salvaged a seventh place
effort in the 40-lapper.
Following a long trek north to the renowned Cedar Lake Speedway in
New Richmond, Wisconsin, Billy competed in the two-day 'Masters' extravaganza
over the weekend. On Friday night, Billy ran fourth in his heat race
prior to picking off six competitors in the $5,000 to win feature event
en route to a steady fourth place showing behind only winner Jimmy Mars,
Jason Feger, and Frank Heckenast, Jr. In Saturday's 'Masters' finale,
which boasted a $10,000 payday, the Batesville, Arkansas superstar won
his heat race and was leading the 50-lap A-Main on lap six when another
flat tire dropped him to a disappointing twentieth place outing. Complete
results from all four battles can be viewed online at www.thehelltour.com.
The #21 team has three more UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals showdowns
circled on their racing calendar from June 17-20. The Farley Speedway
in Farley, Iowa will play host to the cars and stars of the "Hell
Tour" later tonight, while Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois
and Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois will hold
Summer Nationals shows on Friday and Saturday respectively. A $10,000
paycheck will be up for grabs at each of the stops for the BMR team
this week in Iowa and Illinois. More information on the triple shot
