Billy Moyer Returns to Brownstown Victory Lane!

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) April 3, 2007 - Billy Moyer and his #21 team traveled north to the famed Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana on Saturday evening, March 31 for the tenth annual 'Indiana Icebreaker.' The event drew 72 of the best Dirt Late Model drivers in the country, but the Batesville, Arkansas native was up to the challenge and registered his third win of the 2007 season!
Billy, who made his first trip to the south-central Indiana oval in several years, took the lead from teammate Shannon Babb on lap 46 of the 75-lap A-Main and held off Steve Casebolt, Jimmy Owens, Babb, and Josh Richards to record the $10,000 payday.

The Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame driver known as "Mr. Smooth" won his heat race and drew a four prior to the start of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series feature event. He then rolled off from the outside of the second row for the A-Main and fell back to fifth in the early stages of the race.
However, his Banner Valley Hauling / J&J Steel / Karl Chevrolet / McCarthy's Heating and Air Conditioning / Car City #21 Rayburn / Pro Power machine got better and better as the race progressed and Billy was able to put his car into Victory Lane in front of the standing room only Brownstown crowd!

“Brownstown is a place that has been awful good to me throughout my career,”
commented Moyer, who now has fourteen career victories at the Jackson County Fairgrounds venue. “The track has changed some in recent years, but I have always loved competing at Brownstown ever since I started racing. It was a good race up front with (Shannon) Babb, (Steve) Casebolt, and a couple of others, but this new C.J. Rayburn car really handled flawlessly. Ever since we debuted this car a few weeks ago at Kentucky Lake, it has been pretty fast hotrod.”

The Billy Moyer Racing team will take one of the rare opportunities throughout the racing season to compete in front of their hometown fans, as they will invade the nearby Batesville Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas this coming weekend. The O’Reilly SUPR Series will sanction a pair of events at the Batesville area facility, kicking off with a $1,250 to win show on Friday, April 6. A $2,500 top prize will then be up for grabs in Saturday’s finale at the 3/8-mile, high-banked oval.

Billy Moyer Takes Bakersfield Western Allstars Series Top Prize!

(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) March 13, 2007- Billy Moyer traveled out west last weekend to compete in a trio of Western Allstars Series shows in Nevada and California.
Even though he was not behind the wheel of his famed #21 machine, the results were much the same as if he were. The driver known as “Mr. Smooth”
recorded his first feature victory in the young 2007 racing season on Saturday night, March 10 at the Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, California. Driving one of Mike Johnson’s Victory Circle chassis, Billy won his heat race and finished third in the dash to earn the inside second row starting spot for the $3,000 to win A-Main. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer was able to beat Steve Drake, car owner Mike Johnson, Bobby Hogge IV, and Richard Papenhausen to the checkered flag in the 30-lap event to record the $3,000 payday.

Earlier in the weekend, Billy was in action at the Dirt Track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada for the 'BestChoiceProperties.com Las Vegas Dirt Classic.' On Thursday, March 8, Billy won his heat race and started on the pole for the $3,000 to win, 30-lap A-Main. He was running strong during the course of the A-Main before encountering some oil filter problems late in the feature, which relegated him to a disappointing twenty-third place finish. Things got much better at Vegas on Friday for Billy, as he once again won his heat race. After rolling off fourth for the $3,000 to win feature, Billy finished a strong third in the 30-lapper behind winner Jimmy Mars and runner-up Kelly Boen.

“It was a very successful weekend out west,” explained Moyer earlier today.
“I have to thank Mike Johnson for giving me a strong car and a good motor to race with in Vegas and Bakersfield. The racing wasn’t the greatest out in Vegas, but we still had a great car both nights. Then at Bakersfield, I thought the racing was awesome there. It reminded me a lot of Farmer City, Illinois and I really enjoyed racing on a bullring like that. Even though we experienced a mechanical problem on Thursday night at Vegas, I still think the weekend was a great success. I think I was able to help out Mike
(Johnson) with some set-up things and his driving technique, so hopefully it benefited both of us for me to make the trip out there.”

The Billy Moyer Racing team will be back in action this coming weekend at the state-of-the-art Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, Kentucky.
The annual ‘Early Bird Classic’ will be held at KLMS and a $10,000 payday is up for grabs in the unsanctioned event. Qualifying, heat race action, the consolation events, and the 50-lap A-Main will all take place this Saturday, March 17 at the “Taj Mahal of Dirt Racing.” Billy Moyer, Jr. will join his dad at the 3/8-mile, high-banked oval this weekend, as the duo will strive to bring the $10,000 top prize back to Arkansas. For more information concerning this year’s ‘Early Bird Classic,’ please visit www.klms.com!

Billy Moyer Announces 2007 Plans!

BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS - January 5, 2007 - 1988, 1989, and 2005 World of Outlaws Late Model Series Champion Billy Moyer, of Batesville, Arkansas, has decided against running with the series again in 2007. Billy, who has been a mainstay on the circuit since its re-inception in 2004, will be running an “outlaw-type”
schedule this coming year. Although he will still run several events with the 360 OTC World of Outlaws Late Model Series in ’07, the driver known as “Mr. Smooth” will chase money instead of points this season.

The five-time winner of the ‘World 100’ and National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame member will kick off his 2007 season on Thursday, February 1 at the Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, Georgia. After three nights of racing action at GIS, the driver of the familiar #21 machine will trek south to the East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida for six more nights of competitive racing action on February 5-10. His busy Speedweeks 2007 schedule will conclude from February 12-17 at the Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.

“I just decided to go back to my old ways of racing where I want to instead of where I have to,” commented Moyer recently. “There would be a lot of times in the past three years with the Outlaws where I would drive right past a track that was paying $5,000 or $10,000 and go five hours further for the same amount of money. Since I am not points racing this year, I will be able to spend more time with Billy, Jr. both at the shop and at the track.
We didn’t get to race a lot together last year, but I hope that I can speed up his learning curve by racing more with him this season.”

The Billy Moyer Racing team is coming off a successful 2006 campaign, as they posted seven victories, twenty-nine Top Five finishes, and forty-eight Top Ten efforts in the seventy-four events that they entered last season.
Billy was also credited for a fourth place finish in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series point standings after racking up two wins, twelve Top Five runs, and twenty-three Top Ten performances in the thirty series events in 2006.

The Billy Moyer Racing team would like to thank the following sponsors for their continued support: Banner Valley Hauling, Car City, C.J. Rayburn Race Cars, J&J Steel, Karl Chevrolet, McCarthy’s One Hour Heating & Air, Platinum Motors, Pro Power Racing Engines, Red Line Oil, Watter’s Autoland, Advance Race Suspensions, Afcoils, Arizona Sports Shirts, Bell Helmets, Bert Transmission, Brodix Cylinder Heads, Butlerbuilt, Champ Pans, Cizmar, Crower, Dart Heads, Deatherage Opticians, Delph Communications, Design 500, Dyer Rods, Eyerly Birdcages, F.A.S.T., Frankland Rearends, Hawk Brakes, Hoosier Racing Tire, Intercomp, ISKY, JE Pistons, K&B Carburetion, Klushman/KRC, Mason Racin', MSD Ignition, New Vision Graphics, Outlaw Disc Brakes, Out-Pace Racing Products, Pace Jacks, Performance Bodies, Peterson Fluid Systems, PPM Racing Products, Performance Rod & Custom, Ringer's Gloves, Scott Performance Wire, Stealth Carburetion, Stiles Headers, Sunoco Race Fuels, Sweet Mfg., T&D Machine, Weld Racing Wheels, and Wiles Racing Driveshafts.
