Billy Moyer Racing Slated for Weekend Off Following Knoxville Late
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer and his #21 team traveled to the
historic Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa from September 29-October
1 to defend their 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals' title.
While he was not able to sweep the weekend as he did in 2010, Billy
still amassed a trio of top ten finishes at the 1/2-mile facility. In
the pair of $7,000 to win prelims, Billy passed a total of twenty-five
competitors en route to finishing seventh on Thursday night and sixth
on Friday evening.
By virtue of his highest point total night on Thursday, Billy earned
enough points to start fourteenth on the grid in Saturday's $40,000
to win 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals.' During the course
of the 100-lapper, which was taped by the high-definition cameras of
the SPEED Channel, the Batesville, Arkansas ace worked his way past
eight more cars to finish sixth in the final rundown. Billy trailed
only winner Don O'Neal, Steve Francis, Brian Birkhofer, Tyler Reddick,
and Jimmy Owens to the checkers. Complete results from the huge weekend
at Knoxville can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com.
Following Knoxville, the Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team has returned
back to the shop and will take the upcoming October 7-9 weekend off
from racing action. There is a chance that Billy will race again on
October 14-15, but no plans have been officially made at this time.
