MASTERS TRI-CITY FOR WIN IN $7,000 MLRA FINALE!
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
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. Complete

"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!"
