BATESVILLE, Arkansas — If the Billy Moyer Racing team was looking for any type of momentum heading into the upcoming 'World 100,' they found it over the Labor Day holiday weekend! Billy Moyer racked up his sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth feature wins of '08 from August 29-31 at three different venues in Illinois and Ohio. In all, the Batesville, Arkansas native pocketed $18,000 for his efforts, along with picking up a ton of momentum heading into his quest for his sixth globe trophy.
Billy's tripleheader weekend kicked off on Friday night, August 29 at the Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois. He set fast time in qualifying, won his heat race, and later outdueled Jason Feger, Brian Shirley, Jimmy Mars, and Eric Smith to record the $5,000 top prize in the 'Farmer City 50.' A night later, the driver known as "Mr. Smooth" once again set fast time and won his heat race at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois. During the course of the $10,000 to win 'Prairie Dirt Classic,' Billy held his competitors at bay and picked up the victory ahead of Dennis Erb, Don O'Neal, Eric Smith, and Wes Steidinger.
The trio of events for the #21 team concluded on Sunday, August 31 at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Getting some valuable track time for the 'World 100,' Billy won his heat race before dominating the inaugural 25-lap 'Baltes Classic.' He finished ahead of Matt Miller, Aaron Scott, Greg Johnson, and Chad Ruhlman in the $3,000 to win American Late Model Series (ALMS) sanctioned event.
"Hopefully, we didn't run out of wins last weekend," quipped Moyer this week. "We have got this car running really strong right now and hopefully it still has some magic left in it for the World 100 this weekend. Everything at Farmer City, Fairbury, and Eldora went really smooth and the tracks were all in great shape. That is why I love racing in the Midwest so much because it seems like more often than not, the tracks produce really good racing."
The #21 team now has their sights solely focused on the upcoming 'World 100' at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Qualifying for the "Granddaddy of Them All" will take place on Friday night, September 5. The heat races, consolation events, and the 100-lap, $41,000 to win main event are all scheduled for Saturday evening at the "Big E." Billy is the only five-time winner of the historic 'World 100' and will be looking for his sixth globe trophy this weekend!
