07/11/18 Thunderbird Raceway



MUSKEGON, MI — July 11, 2018 — Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR, inherited the lead on lap 32 when Brian Shirley's motor went up in a thick cloud of smoke and held off Frank Heckenast Jr.'s challenges over the remaining distance to record his milestone 100th career DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory in Wednesday night's 40-lap feature at Thunderbird Raceway. The 60-year-old Hall of Famer earned $5,000 as he became the first driver in the history of the Hell Tour to reach the century mark in triumphs.
