Billy Moyer holds off Jimmy Mars to win UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals at Paducah Int’l Raceway!

DIRTcar Summer NationalsPaducah, KY – July 2, 2010 – For Billy Moyer winning is normal, and Moyer was normal once again on Friday night at Paducah International Raceway during Night 17 of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals.

The 52 year-old driver from Batesville, Ark., took the lead at the drop of the green and led all 40 laps to claim his series-leading fifth victory worth $10,000. Moyer’s triumph was his second win in as many days on the grueling month long tour.

The dirt late model hall of famer was chased to the line by eighth-starting Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, Wis., and third starting Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill. Scott James of Lawrenceburg, Ind., and Jeep Van Wormer of Pinconning, Mich. rounded out the top five.

Defending Hell Tour Champion Dennis Erb will unofficially take over the series points lead after finishing 10th while Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill., who was tied with Erb entering the night, finished 16th.

Up next for the DIRTcar Summer Nationals Tour is a visit to I-55 Raceway on Saturday July 3, 2010. In total the Hell Tour has traveled over 3,300 miles in the course of 17 nights. The trip from Paducah to I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo., will have drivers traveling nearly 180 miles north to the track co-owned by NASCAR veteran Kenny Schrader.
