Billy Moyer Sets Sights on Third Dirt Track World Championship
Title at PRP
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Following a rare weekend off from racing action,
Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) bolted into Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus,
Mississippi on October 10-11 for the annual running of the 'Magnolia
State Cotton Pickin' 100.' The unsanctioned mega-event drew a whopping
72 competitors to "The Mag" and each driver had their focus
set on bagging the hefty $20,000 winner's check.
Billy Moyer knocked down the twenty-first quickest lap overall during
the qualifying session on Friday night and later grabbed the third and
final transfer spot through his heat race behind only prelim winner
Scott Bloomquist and runner-up Rick Eckert. After starting Saturday's
100-lap grind from the outside of the seventh row, Billy wound up eighteenth
in the final finishing order of the 'Magnolia State Cotton Pickin' 100.'
Complete results from Magnolia can be accessed online at www.magnoliadirt.com.
Next up for the #21 BMR team will be a trip to the Buckeye State on
October 17-18 for the final event of the 2014 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt
Series season. The Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio will
once again play host to the 34th edition of the 'Dirt Track World Championship.'
Qualifying and heat races will take place at PRP on Friday night, while
the consolation events and the 100-lap main event are slated for Saturday
evening. As is the norm, a massive $50,000 payday will be on the line
in the DTWC, while each feature starter will receive at least $2,000.
The television cameras of the Lucas Oil Production Studios will be
on hand in south-central Ohio this weekend to tape all of the dirt-slinging
action for broadcast on several networks later in the year. Billy is
a two-time 'Dirt Track World Championship' winner (1996, 1986) and ran
seventh in last year's version of the storied race. Additional information
