Billy Moyer Guns for Sixth World 100 Globe Trophy Following PDC
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Batesville, Arkansas native Billy Moyer landed
his twentieth victory of the 2010 campaign on Saturday night, September
4 at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois! Billy
laid down the quickest lap during qualifying and later won his heat
race to earn the pole position for the annual 'Prairie Dirt Classic.'
After leading the first twenty-six circuits, Billy reclaimed the top
spot from Dennis Erb following a caution period with only twelve laps
remaining. The driver known as "Mr. Smooth" went on to capture
his fifth 'Prairie Dirt Classic' title and the $10,000 payday over Dennis
Erb, Brian Shirley, Shannon Babb, and Kevin Weaver.
A night earlier at Fairbury, a $5,000 top prize was up for grabs in
the 'Prairie Dirt Shootout.' Billy timed in fourth fastest during UMP
DIRTcar Series qualifying and later ran third in heat race action. After
starting ninth on the grid in the 40-lapper, Billy picked off four competitors
en route to a fifth place performance behind winner Brian Shirley, Jack
Sullivan, Jason Feger, and Shannon Babb. Complete results from F.A.L.S.
can be located online at www.fairburyspeedway.com.
"I always enjoy racing up in the Midwest at places like Fairbury
and last weekend was no exception," stated Moyer this week. "The
racing was pretty good all weekend long and I definitely think the fans
got their money's worth out of both shows. Having twenty wins at this
point of the year is a pretty neat deal, but it would be very special
for us to get our twenty-first victory at the World 100 this weekend.
We have some momentum heading in there, not only by winning the Prairie
Dirt Classic last weekend at Fairbury, but also by winning the Dream
100 back in June at Eldora."
Next up for the #21 team is the biggest race in the Dirt Late Model
industry: the 40th Annual 'World 100.' The benchmark event in our sport
will take place this weekend at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg,
Ohio. Two rounds of one-lap qualifying will kick off the weekend tonight,
September 10, while heat races, consolation events, and the 100-lap
main event are scheduled for Saturday evening, September 11. In addition
to the $43,000 payday that goes to the winner of the 'World 100,' two
prestigious globe trophies will be awarded to the winning driver and
car owner. Billy will be looking for his record sixth 'World 100' title,
as he reached victory lane back in 1991, 1993, 1994, 1998, and 2000.
