Billy Moyer Captures Checkers at Granite City; Eyes Pair of Holiday
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer's 2016 win total now stands at eight
following a MARS DIRTcar Series triumph on Friday night, August 26 at
Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois! Billy, who has enjoyed
a myriad of success at the St. Louis-area facility throughout his Hall
of Fame career, won his heat race in preliminary action prior to starting
the headliner from the outside of the front row. The Batesville, Arkansas
superstar then dominated the A-Main to pocket the $5,000 top prize over
Bobby Pierce, Jesse Stovall, Gordy Gundaker, and Will Vaught!
The #21 BMR team also competed in $5,000 to win MARS DIRTcar Series
programs on Thursday at Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois and on
Saturday evening at Federated Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri. At
Lincoln, Billy won his heat race and later claimed a strong third place
podium performance in the 40-lapper behind only winner Bobby Pierce
and runner-up Ryan Unzicker. In the weekend finale at Pevely, "Mr.
Smooth" set Fast Time in qualifying, won his heat race, but later
wound up eighteenth in the final finishing order of the 40-lap feature
after experiencing a broken rear-end late in the distance. Complete
results from the tripleheader weekend can be obtained online at www.marsracingseries.com.
With 813 career wins now on his illustrious resume, Billy will be gunning
for a couple more victories over the Labor Day holiday weekend (September
2-4) in events in Illinois and Ohio. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer
plans to sling dirt in a pair of American Late Model Series (ALMS) showdowns
starting later tonight at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois.
Following the $5,000 to win show tonight in the Land of Lincoln, the
Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team will trek east to the famed Eldora Speedway
in Rossburg, Ohio on Sunday for the annual running of the 'Baltes Classic,'
which pays $3,000 to the winner. Additional information on these ALMS
races can be accessed by clicking on www.farmercityracing.com
