Billy Moyer Takes 99th Career Summer Nationals Win at Farmer City

 

FARMER CITY, IL — The hot streak that Shannon Babb used to kick off this year’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals has cooled about as quickly as the Illnois weather. After winning three of the first four races and five of the tour’s first nine, the Moweaqua, IL, driver has been on an equally paltry streak over the course of the last five races.

 

Friday that icy patch continued at Farmer City Raceway, where it was Hall of Famer Billy Moyer who took advantage of Babb’s latest tough break to win his series-leading 99th career Summer Nationals main event. Moyer, of Batesville, AR, inherited the lead when Babb slowed with a flat right rear tire during a lap 34 caution. Moyer then led the final six laps, pulling away from Brian Shirley of Chatham, IL, for a $10,000 triumph.
