Billy Moyer Reaches Double Figure Win Mark with $7,500 All-American
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team reached double
figures in the win column for 2017 on Saturday evening, November 4 by
capturing their tenth feature triumph in the 'All-American 60' at Jackson
Motor Speedway near Jackson, Mississippi! Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer
Billy Moyer knocked down the fifth quickest lap overall during the Super
Late Model qualifying session prior to running second in his heat race.
After starting fifth on the grid in the unsanctioned 60-lap headliner,
Billy drove towards the front and capitalized on race-long leader Jason
Rauen's misfortune to score the win.
The popular driver known as "Mr. Smooth" led the final three
circuits in the 'All-American 60' after Rauen - who was being hounded
by Moyer for the race lead - slammed into a stalled car and was eliminated
with heavy damage. Billy went on to bag the $7,500 winner's share for
career victory #826 over Brian Rickman, Dane Dacus, Garrett Alberson,
and B.J. Robinson! Full results from the topless special at Jackson
Motor Speedway can be accessed online at www.jacksonmotorspeedway.net.
"That was a tough break for (Jason) Rauen, as I guess he didn't
see that car slow in front of him," commented Moyer this week.
"I let off the gas after seeing (Jon) Mitchell have some trouble
there in front of us and I headed to the bottom of the racetrack. We
had a good hotrod though and put ourselves in position to capitalize
on his misfortune to get the win. We've got the Dome race on our schedule
still for this year, but it feels great to head into this month or so
break having won our last race!"
Billy and his famed #21 team are now done racing until the 2nd edition
of the 'Gateway Dirt Nationals' takes place on December 14-16 at The
Dome at America's Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Things will kick off
on the indoor dirt racing surface on that Thursday with a special "Race
of Champions," which pays $5,000 to the winner. Another $5,000
top prize will be on the line during the preliminary night on Friday
before Saturday's Championship race, which boasts a hefty $30,000 payday.
