Billy Moyer Notches 800th Career Win Saturday at Lafayette County
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer recorded
his 800th career victory on Saturday evening, August 8 at Lafayette
County Speedway in Darlington, Wisconsin! Billy picked up a heat race
victory in preliminary action and later started the 'Ralph Fryer Memorial'
from the outside of the front row. The Batesville, Arkansas star then
outran Chad Simpson, Jason Rauen, Mitch McGrath, and Jason Feger in
the Corn Belt Clash Late Model Series special to earn the $5,454.54
A day earlier, the #21 team was in Corn Belt Clash Late Model Series
competition on Friday at Fayette County Speedway in West Union, Iowa.
Billy also won his heat race and later started the headliner from the
pole position. The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" then
led a bulk of the laps in the $5,000 to win 'Crop Production Services
40' before Chad Simpson slipped by to grab the point with six laps remaining,
which dropped Moyer to a strong runner-up performance. Complete results
from both CBC battles can be accessed online at www.cornbeltclash.com.
"I would have never believed that we would have 800 wins when
I started out racing an old Camaro out of Des Moines, Iowa back in the
day," exclaimed Moyer recently. "It has been a lot of hard
work since 1977 and a ton of miles up and down the highways. I am grateful
to all of the crew members, car owners, and sponsors that I have had
along the way that were instrumental in that success. Hopefully, we
still have some more wins ahead of us and it would be nice to keep it
rolling this weekend in the Topless 100 at Batesville!"
The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team will shoot for win #801 this upcoming
weekend (August 14-15) at the nearby Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust
Grove, Arkansas. The 23rd Annual 'COMP Cams Topless 100' will be held
over the weekend at the 3/8-mile, high-banked oval, which is located
just outside of Batesville and a short drive from the #21 race shop.
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series qualifying and heat races are scheduled
for Friday night, while the consolation events and the 100-lap headliner
are slated for Saturday evening.
The biggest roofless event in Super Late Model racing once again boasts
a hefty $40,000 winner's check, while each feature starter will receive
at least $2,000 for their efforts. Billy is a four-time victor of the
'Topless 100,' as he crossed the finish line first back in 1995, 1997,
2002, and 2005. The crown jewel extravaganza will once again be taped
by the cameras of the Lucas Oil Production Studios for broadcast later
in the year on MavTV and NBC Sports Network. Additional information
