Billy Moyer Pockets $13,000 for Deep Fried 75 Triumph at Duck River!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) "Mr. Smooth" Billy Moyer recorded
his eleventh feature victory of the 2016 campaign over the October 14-15
weekend at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tennessee! On Friday night,
Billy clicked off the sixth fastest lap in Group A during Southern Nationals
Bonus Series qualifying and later placed second in his heat race behind
only prelim winner Chase Junghans.
After starting Saturday's 75-lap 'Deep Fried 75' from the inside of
the fourth row, Billy methodically worked his way to the front of the
field and eventually grabbed the point from Tanner English on the 66th
circuit. The Batesville, Arkansas Hall of Famer then led the remainder
of the distance to pocket the $13,000 windfall over English, Caleb Ashby,
Ricky Weiss, and David Payne! Full results from the 'Deep Fried 75'
weekend can be accessed online at www.southernnationalsseries.com.
"I started out the race working the bottom of the racetrack before
moving up and rolling that middle," quoted Moyer following the
completion of the 'Deep Fried 75.' "That's where the track was
the best in the late stages of the race and it just worked out for us.
Tanner (English) did a great job - he just hit those holes and shoved
a little bit on the lap I passed him for the lead. It was a good win
for us and we will try to keep things rolling heading into Whynot this
Next up for the Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team will be the 22nd edition
of the 'Coors Light Fall Classic' on October 21-22 at Whynot Motorsports
Park in Meridian, Mississippi. The unsanctioned Super Late Model special
will start on Friday night with qualifying and heat races, while the
two-day showdown will be capped off on Saturday evening with the consolation
events and the 100-lap headliner. A $15,000 top prize has once again
been established for the 'Coors Light Fall Classic' winner. Billy is
always one of the favorites each time he visits Whynot and has finished
inside of the top ten in each of his last five visits, including an
impressive runner-up performance last season. More information concerning
