Billy Moyer Makes History with Summer Nationals Victory at Cedar Lake

Bobby Pierce battles back from mechanical issues to finish fourth

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. – June 17, 2016 – Billy Moyer powered to victory lane at Cedar Lake Speedway on Friday night as he claimed his 91st career DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory and became the winningest driver in series history.

Moyer, of Batesville, Ark., was the class of the field, leading flag-to-flag from the pole. The 58-year-old hall of famer held off Jason Krohn, who battled past Jason Rauen near the midway point of the feature. Krohn, who finished second, tried to run down Moyer late but was unable to close the distance. He scored his best ever Summer Nationals performance. Chris Simpson battled forward to finish in third.

Bobby Pierce, the reigning Summer Nationals champion, claimed the win in the season opener at Kankakee County Speedway, but night two was not as easy. Mechanical issues sidelined him in his Heat race. After pulling down the backup, Pierce battled through the Last Chance Showdown to make the feature. Through the adversity of the night, he finished fourth.

The Summer Nationals returns to action Saturday for the conclusion of the double-header at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis.
