MOYER MASTERS TRI-CITY FOR WIN IN $7,000 MLRA FINALE!
October 23, 2020 ---
Billy Moyer, of Batesville, Arkansas, mastered Tri-City Speedway on Saturday evening, October 17 to land his fifth victory of 2020 and his 845th win in his illustrious career! At the Granite City, Illinois oval in the Lucas Oil MLRA Series finale, Billy placed second in his heat race and later rolled off from the outside of the third row in the 40-lap main event. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer then steered his famed #21 machine to the point on the 29th circuit and held off a charging Bobby Pierce late in the contest to secure the $7,000 top prize. Finishing behind Moyer was Pierce, Ryan Gustin, Tony Jackson, Jr., and Chad Simpson! (Fast Track Photos)

In the weekend opener at Granite City on Friday night, Billy ran third in his loaded heat race prior to starting the $5,000 to win headliner from the inside of the fifth row. The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" then worked his way past a trio of competitors at the St. Louis-area venue to finish sixth in the final rundown of the 30-lapper behind only race winner Mason Oberkramer, Chris Simpson, Tim Manville, Shannon Babb, and Bobby Pierce.

"We made some changes to the car and hit it pretty good," commented Moyer in victory lane. "Early in the race I was a little bit concerned, but I guess it kind of come to us the longer we went. The bottom was kind of wore out more, but I could make better time down there. Down both straitaways - even the back there - it felt like way low I could get a little bit of grip to get ahold of. That's where I worked hard to try to adjust the car where I could kind of hit that little strip there and it worked out for us. It was a fun race and the track the last two nights has been really good race-wise with a good top and bottom on it!"
