Billy Moyer Masters Fayette County Speedway for $10,000 Triumph;
Runner-Up at Highland!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer bagged
his fourth special event victory of the 2015 racing season on Friday
night, July 3 at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, Illinois! Billy
swept the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals program by clicking off the fastest
lap overall during qualifying and winning his heat race. The Batesville,
Arkansas star then led from flag-to-flag in the caution-free 50-lap
feature to claim his 90th career "Hell Tour" win and the $10,000
payday over son Billy Moyer, Jr., Bobby Pierce, Brian Shirley, and Matt
The famed #21 team then followed the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour
to Highland Speedway in Highland, Illinois on Saturday evening, July
4 to celebrate Independence Day with another $10,000 to win shootout.
Billy once again posted the quickest time overall during the qualifying
session prior to scoring another heat race triumph. After leading laps
2-24 of the 50-lap headliner, the popular driver known as "Mr.
Smooth" settled for a strong runner-up performance behind only
victor Jason Feger. Complete results from the Summer Nationals weekend

"We have had some horrible luck here lately, particularly in some
of these Summer Nationals shows," quoted Moyer this week. "We
have been leading or been in contention for some wins and either we
get a flat tire or lapped cars cost us or we break a transmission at
Fairbury. Hopefully, our luck has changed with that first and second
place finish at Fayette County and Highland over the weekend. There
are a lot of big money races coming up, so it's nice to have a little
momentum heading into those events."
Next up for Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) will be visits to Tri-City Speedway
in Granite City, Illinois and Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri
with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series from July 10-12. On Friday
night, the tripleheader weekend will kick off with the $10,000 to win
'Battle at the Beach 50' at Tri-City Speedway, which will be headlined
by a 50-lap main event. At the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway on
Saturday evening, the 9th Annual CMH 'Diamond Nationals' will be held
and another $10,000 top prize awaits the winner.
When Sunday rolls around in the Show-Me State, the completion of the
23rd Annual Lucas Oil 'Show-Me 100' will wrap up a huge weekend of racing
action. The final night of the crown jewel extravaganza at the Wheatland,
Missouri facility was postponed due to rain back on May 23. When the
100-lapper goes green on Sunday, Billy will have his focus on the $30,000
winner's share, as he starts the extra-distance affair from the outside
of the third row by virtue of winning his heat race back in May. The
renowned Lucas Oil Production Studios will be on hand to film all three
weekend events for air on multiple television networks later in 2015.
