Fifty-two Super Late Models registered for competition at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) in the $20,000-to-win event. Qualifying on Friday evening resulted in Billy starting 2nd in his heat race, and he battled Jimmy Owens for much of the race before settling for a 2nd place finish, which sent him to Saturday night’s 100 lap finale in the 8th starting spot.
As the main event went green in front of a massive crowd on Saturday night Billy began marching his way forward, and quickly raced into the top five. As the feature approached the halfway point he found his way into the 2nd spot behind race leader, Jimmy Owens. During the event’s late laps Moyer Jr. caught Owens in traffic but couldn’t do anything with him as he would settle into a still strong, 2nd place finish.
“This year has really been trying for me, but this event proves that we have all the right pieces in place,” commented Moyer Jr. “I can’t thank all of my sponsors and fans for their great support. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into next weekend’s Lucas Oil finale at Portsmouth.”
