Moyer Dominates at Fayette County Speedway for 90th Victory of His DIRTcar Summer Nationals Career
BROWNSTOWN, Ill. – July 2, 2015 – Billy Moyer dominated the DIRTcar Summer Nationals 50-lap feature on Friday night at Fayette County Speedway to lead a father-son sweep of the top-two spots.
Moyer, of Batesville, Ark., completely controlled the caution-free race, leading the final 47 laps and collecting $10,000 for his efforts while Billy Moyer Jr. held off points-leader Bobby Pierce to finish second. Brian Shirley finished fourth followed by Matt Westfall.
The victory was the 90th of Moyer’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals career, breaking a tie with Shannon Babb, who finished 11th on Friday night.
“We’ve just had some terrible luck,” said Moyer, a six-time DIRTcar Summer Nationals champion. “We come out at Brownstown pretty good and lapped cars kind of cost us. And then we had a couple flat tires, broke the transmission at Fairbury. We was running good at a lot of them and then there’s a few nights that we haven’t been good. This track … I don’t know, I like this place. It’s a little bullring, but it’s racy and it’s fun and we just hit everything right tonight.”
The DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour races to Highland (Ill.) Speedway on Saturday and Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., on Sunday.
