Moyer Outduels Manville for Second Win of 2014 DIRTcar Summer Nationals

By Jordan Morris

PONTOON BEACH, Ill. – June 20, 2014 – Billy Moyer fought hard to score his second win of the 2014 DIRTcar Summer Nationals season, overtaking Tim Manville on lap 30 en route to capturing the $10,000 checkered flag Friday night at Tri-City Speedway.

Moyer, who started from the pole, had trouble holding the lead early. Manville, who started on the outside of row one, drove into the lead on lap two and looked to be the one to beat for the majority of the 50-lap feature event.

As the race progressed, Moyer found traction on the inside of the race track, using that line to propel himself to the lead, passing Manville on lap 30. Manville continued to slip back as Moyer sailed away from the field, leading the final 20 laps and capturing the victory at Tri-City Speedway. Moyer’s son, Billy Moyer Jr., managed to pass Manville for second position completing the Moyer sweep of the top two positions.

Moyer’s victory returns him to atop the series all-time wins list, tied with Shannon Babb at 84, in what is shaping up to be a season-long battle for the top spot.

The DIRTcar Summer Nationals continues on Saturday night at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill.
