Billy Moyer Runner-Up in Down & Dirty 100; Knoxville Ahead
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team made a rare
trip to the Wolverine State of Michigan on September 21-22 for the inaugural
running of the 'Down & Dirty 100' at the renowned Berlin Raceway
in Marne, Michigan. Over 300 truckloads of clay was placed on the 7/16-mile
asphalt oval for the historic race, which boasted a hefty $20,000 top
prize. After rain showers invaded the area on Friday night, the entire
show was condensed into a one-day format on Saturday.
Billy Moyer laid down the second quickest lap in World of Outlaws Late
Model Series qualifying and later took the win in his heat race. After
drawing the fourth starting spot prior to the 'Down & Dirty 100,'
Billy raced into the lead on lap 23 and held the top spot all the way
up to the 95th circuit. Eventual winner Darrell Lanigan made contact
with Moyer's famed #21 to grab the point in the waning laps and Billy
was forced to settle for a strong runner-up performance. Complete results
from Berlin can be viewed online at www.worldofoutlaws.com.
Next up for the BMR team will be a visit to the Hawkeye State for the
'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals.' The 9th annual version of
the crown jewel extravaganza will take place from September 27-29 at
the famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. A pair of $7,000 to
win preliminary shows are scheduled for Thursday and Friday, while the
100-lapper at the 1/2-mile Marion County fairgrounds oval on Saturday
shells out an impressive $40,000 to the victor.
Lucas Oil Production Studios will also be on hand to tape this mega-event
for a SPEED and MAVTV broadcast later in the fall. Billy was the 2010
winner of the 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals' and will be
seeking his second race title this weekend. Additional information can
