Billy Moyer Jr. Breaks Through with CCSDS Triumph at Crawford County
Van Buren, AR (05/12/12) – 2009 Series Champion, Billy Moyer Jr., ended his 2012 winless streak by claiming the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) feature win on Saturday night at Crawford County Speedway (Van Buren, Arkansas).
After winning the first heat race Moyer Jr. was the New Vision Graphics Pole Qualifier for the 35 lap, $2,000-to-win event. He was joined on the front row by Jack Sullivan, and as the green flag waved on the event Moyer Jr. bolted to the top spot with Sullivan, Jon Kirby, Brandon Smith, and Kyle Beard in pursuit. With a bottom-groove, dominant track passing would be difficult, and despite four cautions to regroup the field nobody would have anything for the leader, Moyer Jr.
Jack Sullivan held down the second position until a tight race car allowed Kirby to slip by for the spot with a couple of laps remaining. Billy Moyer Jr. claimed the win over Kirby, Sullivan, Smith, and Beard. Moyer Jr. now has eight career wins on the CCSDS tour, and is tied for second on the series all-time win list with Bill Frye. Wallace leads the record books with twelve, career triumphs.
GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 was won by Billy Moyer Jr. with Jack Sullivan winning NEA Super Gas/Killer Coatings Heat Race #2 and RiceTec Heat Race #3 being claimed by Kyle Beard.
Johnny Virden earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for passing five cars in the feature event. The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Keith Lawson, who saw a top ten run come to an end after a lap 27 tangle with lap traffic.
The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series now takes off the rest of May before resuming the 2012 campaign on Saturday, June 2nd at Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas) in the $2,000-to-win/$400-to-start, Bartlett Hardwood Floor Service 35.
