Billy Moyer Racing Set for Weekend Off Following $10,000 Chris
Smith Memorial Win!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer racked
up his 82nd career UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory on Friday night,
June 28 at the Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Kentucky! Billy
posted the fastest lap in his group during the qualifying session and
later took the win in his stacked heat race. After drawing the third
starting spot prior to the 40-lap 'Chris Smith Memorial,' Billy grabbed
the point from leader Tyler Reddick on lap 19 and never looked back.
The Batesville, Arkansas star picked up the $10,000 payday ahead of
Ryan Unzicker, Shannon Babb, Kent Robinson, and Bobby Pierce!
In other "Hell Tour" action last weekend, the #21 team pulled
into the pit area on Thursday evening, June 27 at the Clayhill Motorsports
in Atwood, Tennessee. Billy timed in sixth quickest in his group during
qualifying and later grabbed the fifth and final transfer spot through
his heat race. The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" tried
some things during the $5,000 to win A-Main and wound up seventeenth
in the final rundown. Saturday's UMP Summer Nationals showdown scheduled
for the Federated Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri was then washed
out by Mother Nature. Full results from the action-packed weekend can

"We have been down a little bit this year, but we are definitely
not giving up," stated Moyer following his win at PIR. "My
crew has been working their tail off and we are steadily gaining on
things. Sometimes you have got to go backwards a little bit before you
go forward, so hopefully we are trending in the right direction now.
I am looking forward to getting this new car built and finishing the
year on a strong note!"
The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team has opted to take the upcoming July
5-6 weekend off from Dirt Late Model competition. The team is currently
building a new Victory Circle by Moyer car that they hope to debut very
soon. Depending on how the new car comes along, Billy is still up in
the air about when he will race next. Be sure to keep logging onto www.billymoyer.com
