HAUBSTADT, Ind. — Billy Moyer dominated Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway leading all 40 laps en route to claiming his first career victory at the quarter-mile oval and his third win of the 2014 DIRTcar Summer Nationals.
Moyer claimed the pole-position with Curtis Roberts starting on his outside. Roberts faded early, losing second to Tanner English, who started third, and Randy Korte, who started fifth. English and Korte challenged Moyer for the lead early but had no luck at wrestling the lead away from the Hall of Fame driver from Batesville, Ark.
“We just guessed everything right here tonight,” said Moyer, who was making his first start at Tri-State Speedway since switching to Longhorn Chassis in the offseason. “Right off the trailer, it wasn’t too bad when we hot-lapped, and we just kept tweaking on it through the night, then in the heat race it felt pretty good, and we did just a few other things for the main event. The track just always keep you guessing, and we just made the right decisions.”
As Moyer pulled away from the rest of the field, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular Austin Dillon charged his way to the front. Dillon, who finished a career-best fifth place Sunday morning at Daytona International Speedway, made the trek to the Indiana track after rain showers cut the Sprint Cup race short.
