Locust Grove, Arkansas (04/13/12) – Billy Moyer is a threat to win at any track in the nation, but when he enters an event at his home track, Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas) he is more than an odds-on favorite. On Friday evening he dominated the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) sanctioned event at the 3/8 mile oval by leading flag-to-flag to claim the victory in the $2,000-to-win event.
Twenty-nine Super Late Models entered the event, and after a dominating charge from last to first in his heat race Moyer earned the JFR Graphics Pole for the 30 lap feature. He was joined on the front row by RC Whitwell and as the race went green the field flared two and three wide into turn one. Before a lap could be completed the caution flag flew for Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year candidate, Chandler Petty, who jumped the cushion exiting turn two, making hard contact with the wall.
The field was lined up again for what would be the only restart of the night. As the green flag flew it was Moyer, who bolted to the lead. Over the course of the 30 lap feature he would drive away from the competition, lapping up to the seventh position on his way to his second CCSDS win a row. He was followed across the finish line by RC Whitwell, Billy Moyer Jr., Robert Baker, and Brandon Smith.
GRT Heat Race #1 was won by Brian Ritchie with RC Whitwell winning NEA Super Gas/Killer Coatings Heat Race #2. RiceTec Heat Race #3 saw Billy Moyer victorious, while Robert Baker won Racing Head Service Heat Race #4.
The Boston’s Sports Bar & Restaurants b-mains were won by Johnny Virden and Todd Hall.
Johnny Virden was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 15th starting spot to a seventh place finish.
The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Chandler Petty for his bad luck on the opening lap of the feature.
