Billy Moyer Racks Up Over $41,000 in Weekend Earnings; Seeks Seventh Globe Trophy!

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) enjoyed a fantastic Labor Day holiday weekend, as they reached victory lane on two different occasions and racked up over $41,000 in earnings! Their first win of the weekend came on Saturday, August 31 at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio. Billy Moyer timed in third fastest in Group B during Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series qualifying and later took the win in his heat race. After starting the 'Pepsi 50 River Days Rumble' from the outside of the front row, Billy led all fifty circuits en route to the dominating $15,000 triumph over Jimmy Owens, Dennis Erb, Jr., Scott Bloomquist, and Jason Feger!

The biggest victory of the holiday weekend came on Monday, September 2 at the Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pennsylvania. Billy laid down the tenth quickest lap in National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) time trials and later grabbed the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race. After rolling off from the outside of the eighth row in the 75-lap main event, Billy methodically worked his way towards the front and mastered the tire-saving game. With several cars up front bowing out with flat tires, Billy made his last to the finish to lead the final two circuits. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer recorded the exciting $20,000 win over Jamie Lathroum, Josh Richards, Eric Wells, and Tim Fuller and now holds the top spot in the current NDRL point standings!

In other action over the weekend, the BMR team started their Labor Day journey on Friday, August 30 with a $10,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series battle at the Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. Billy finished third in his heat race prior to logging an eighth place performance in the 50-lapper. On Sunday, September 1, the 45th Annual 'Hillbilly 100' took place at the I-77 Raceway Park in Ripley, West Virginia. "Mr. Smooth" won his B-Main to transfer into the $25,000 to win crown jewel event and later picked off fifteen competitors en route to an impressive fourth place showing in the 100-lapper to finish behind only winner Jimmy Owens, Steve Francis, and Earl Pearson, Jr. Full results from the long weekend of racing can be found online at www.dirtondirt.com.

"That is the kind of success we have been working towards all year long," quoted Moyer earlier this week. "It is no secret that we haven't had the year that we would like so far, but my guys have kept busting their tail and our car is getting better and better. We have been working on some stuff to incorporate into our cars for 2014 and things are seemingly coming together hopefully at the right time. There were some big races last weekend and more coming up on the schedule, including this upcoming weekend at Eldora of course. It would be awfully nice to carry that momentum from the Portsmouth and Roaring Knob wins into Eldora and go after that seventh globe!"

Next up for the #21 team will be the 43rd running of the 'World 100.' The event known as "The Granddaddy of Them All" will take place on September 5-7 at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. This Thursday and Friday night at the "Big E" will feature complete shows with a full slate of multi-car time trials to split the field into even/odd groups followed by heat races, B-Mains, and twin 25-lap main events, each paying $5,000 to the winner. On Saturday, the time-honored format of six heat races, along with two B-Mains and B-Scrambles, will lead into the 100-lap 'World 100,' which boasts a hefty $46,000 top prize and the prestigious globe trophy.

The total posted awards for the 2013 edition of the 'World 100' is a record $283,910. Billy has transferred into the 'World 100' feature event on twenty-two different occasions during his illustrious career and is the only driver to win it six times (1991, 1993, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2010).
