CAPTURES ANOTHER BALTES CLASSIC TITLE!
5, 2018 --- Billy Moyer,
of Batesville, Arkansas, racked up his fourth 'Baltes Classic' title
on Sunday evening, September 2 on the hallowed high-banks of Eldora
Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio! Billy timed in third quickest in his
group during American Late Model Series (ALMS) qualifying prior
to scoring the victory in his heat race. After starting the 30-lap
main event from the pole position, Billy led most of the feature
distance before swapping the top spot a couple of times late with
Nick Hoffman in lapped traffic. At the checkers, Billy was able
to stave off Hoffman, Matt Miller, Rusty Schlenk, and Chad Finley
to score the $5,000 payday. The popular driver known as "Mr.
Smooth" now has eight victories to his credit in 2018 and has
amassed 834 wins on his impressive career resume! (Jim
Earlier in the weekend, the #21 team was in action at Tri-City
Speedway in Granite City, Illinois and Farmer City Raceway in Farmer
City, Illinois. On Thursday at Granite City, Billy finished second
in his heat race, but later pulled off the racing surface early
in the $2,000 to win feature event due to track conditions and placed
twelfth in the final finishing order. At Farmer City on Friday night
in a $5,000 to win ALMS contest, Billy set Fast Time in qualifying,
won his heat race, and later led the first 34 circuits in the 35-lapper.
Unfortunately, he was passed by eventual winner Shannon Babb on
the final lap and was forced to settle for a strong runner-up performance.

"Everyone knows what Earl (Baltes) did for our sport, so winning
a race that memorializes him is a cool deal," exclaimed Moyer
following Sunday's victory. "It makes me proud to come up here
to Eldora and win one more. It was a real good race there with (Nick)
Hoffman at the end and fortunately we were able to come out on top.
Hopefully, some notes and things we learned will translate over
to the World 100 weekend, but you never know what kind of racetrack
you are going to get there. We sure didn't expect as much moisture
in the track as we got on Sunday, but we made the right adjustments
and got the job done!"
Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) will now make a return trip to Eldora
Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from September 6-8 for the 48th edition
of the fabled 'World 100.' A complete preliminary show highlighted
by a pair of Twin 25s will be held on both Thursday and Friday at
the "Big E," as drivers will gun for the $10,000 payday
in each of those four 25-lap sprints. Combined points from those
two prelim nights will set the lineup for Saturday's traditional
six heat races.
Following the heat races on Saturday at the 1/2-mile speedplant,
two consolation races will finalize the starting field for the 48th
Annual 'World 100.' A huge crowd is expected to file into Eldora
Speedway to witness the 100-lap crown jewel spectacular, which is
set to pay a hefty $51,000 to the winner. Billy has transferred
into twenty-five 'World 100' headliners throughout his illustrious
career and is the only six-time winner of the event, as he found
victory lane in the "Granddaddy Of Them All" in 1991,
1993, 1994, 1998, 2000, and 2010. Learn more about this weekend's
