(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) kicked off their 2014 racing season from January 11-19 at the Tucson International Raceway, as the six-race ‘Winter Extreme’ miniseries took place at the Tucson, Arizona facility. For the first time, the National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) presided over the dirt-slinging action at TIR and sixty-five different drivers competed in at least one event in the Copper State. Billy Moyer, who debuted a new Moyer Xtreme by Longhorn racecar, was one of only three drivers to transfer into each of the six main events during the nine-day burst of racing in Tucson.
Billy’s 2014 ‘Winter Extreme’ was highlighted by a feature win on Wednesday night, January 15. The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer laid down the fastest lap in his group during NDRL time trials last Wednesday and later scored the victory in his heat race. After drawing the outside of the front row for the start of the 30-lap A-Main, Billy grabbed the early race lead and held off all challenges to earn the $3,000 payday. “Mr. Smooth” picked up his twelfth career Arizona January triumph over Brandon Sheppard, Chase Junghans, Jimmy Mars, and Chris Simpson!
The Batesville, Arkansas hotshoe also nabbed two more podium finishes, as he was runner-up in the $3,000 to win opener on Saturday, January 11 and third in the $3,000 to win showdown on Friday, January 17. Billy also finished seventh on January 12 and twenty-third on January 18, while he was credited with a seventeenth place effort in the $10,000 to win ‘Winter Extreme’ finale on Sunday, January 19.

“I would say that our debut with the Moyer Xtreme by Longhorn cars were a success with both me and Junior picking up wins in Tucson,” stated Moyer. “We didn’t finish the week like I had hoped, but we are still tuning on these hotrods and figuring out what the cars need in certain conditions. That is one of the reasons why I like coming to deals like Tucson and El Paso where you have multiple opportunities early in the season to work on your stuff.”
Billy, who was the inaugural 2013 NDRL Champion, will now set his sights on the El Paso Speedway Park in El Paso, Texas. The NDRL tour will once again sanction the festivities at El Paso, as the ‘Battle at the Border’ will be made up of a trio of programs from January 24-26. Friday’s opener at EPSP will pay $3,000 to win, while Saturday and Sunday’s extravaganzas will both be headlined by $5,000 winning purses. All of the action will be broadcast live on Pay-Per-View at www.DirtonDirt.com.
