Billy Moyer Notches Eighth Magnolia State 100 Title; Looks for
Added Knoxville Success!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team brought a
brand-new Victory Circle by Moyer racecar to the Columbus Speedway in
Columbus, Mississippi on September 23-24 for the 22nd Annual 'Magnolia
State 100.' The decision to unveil the new car proved to be a smart
one for the #21 team, as Hall of Famer Billy Moyer picked up his unprecedented
eighth 'Magnolia State 100' title!
On Friday night, Billy laid down the second fastest lap in his group
during the qualifying session at the "Baddest Bullring in the South"
and later won his loaded heat race. After starting from the pole position
of the 100-lapper on Saturday evening, Billy grabbed the top spot on
the first circuit and held the point for the entire distance. It was
not easy; however, as "Mr. Smooth" survived a couple of close
calls in lapped traffic to record the hefty $20,011 payday. Billy and
the team celebrated in victory lane for the twelfth time in 2011 by
defeating Bub McCool, Eric Cooley, Brian Rickman, and Morgan Bagley.

"I have to thank my whole team for working so hard on this new
car and getting it ready for Columbus," quoted Moyer yesterday
via telephone. "It was probably only 75% ready to go for that race,
but it got the job done. There were a couple of hairy moments, but luckily
I was able to get through the traffic to get the win. We have worked
some late nights finishing up the car this week in preparation for Knoxville.
Hopefully, it performs as well as the car we took up there a year ago.
It would be really special to repeat at Knoxville this weekend!"
Billy and his #21 team will now turn their sole focus to the 8th Annual
'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals' at the Knoxville Raceway
in Knoxville, Iowa from September 29-October 1. A pair of $7,000 to
win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series programs will kick off the three-day
extravaganza tonight and Friday evening at the 1/2-mile complex, while
Saturday's 100-lap finale will pay $40,000 to the winner. The high-definition
cameras of the SPEED Channel will be on hand to tape all of the wheel-to-wheel
action for broadcast in a matter of weeks. Billy will be looking to
repeat his 2010 performance at Knoxville, as he swept all three races
a year ago! Additional information on the crown jewel event this weekend
