ROLLS TO GUMBO NATIONALS WIN WORTH $8,000!
9, 2020 --- Billy Moyer secured
his first 'Gumbo Nationals' title on Saturday evening, October 3
at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Mississippi! The Dirt Late
Model Hall of Famer, who now has 844 career feature wins on his
resume, won his heat race in preliminary action and later started
fourth on the grid in the weekend finale. Billy then grabbed the
point from race leader B.J. Robinson on the 32nd circuit of the
'Gumbo Nationals' and led the remainder of the 50-lap distance to
pocket the $8,000 grand prize. The Batesville, Arkansas star claimed
his fourth victory of 2020 and his twelfth career COMP Cams Super
Dirt Series triumph over Robinson, Timothy Culp, Spencer Hughes,
and Rick Rickman! (Millie Tanner Photo)
Earlier in the doubleheader weekend at Greenville, a $4,000 winner's
check was up for grabs on Friday night. Billy laid down the quickest
lap in Group B during CCSDS qualifying prior to running second in
heat race action. After rolling off from the outside of the third
row in the 30-lap 'Gumbo Nationals' opener, "Mr. Smooth"
drove past a trio of competitors en route to a strong third place
podium effort behind only winner Neil Baggett and runner-up Brian
Rickman. Full results from both weekend races in the Magnolia State
can be viewed online at www.compdirt.com.
"At the beginning of the race, B.J. Robinson smoked us all
there at least for the first half of it," quoted Moyer in victory
lane. "We moved around and moved around the racetrack and I
just felt like the bottom of the track was going away a little bit
- at least for my car. I kept kinda watching the outside groove
and on that one restart, it was getting to the part of the race
where it was time to go, so we went for it. It all worked out and
I can't thank all of my great sponsors enough for all of their support.
Hopefully there are a few more wins in store for us as the season
