Moyer works high side for World of Outlaws LMS victory at I-30

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR, blasted from third to first on a lap-18 restart and marched on to capture Saturday night's 50-lap World of Outlaws Late Model Series A-Main at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, AR.

The 56-year-old Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer sailed around the outside of WoO LMS regulars Darrell Lanigan of Union, KY, and Shane Clanton of Zebulon, GA, rounding turns one and two and was in front for good when lap 19 was scored. He turned back a late challenge from Lanigan while negotiating lapped traffic to earn $10,150 in front of his home-state fans.

"It's cool that we could pull one off for 'em this close to home," said Moyer, who registered his 19th WoO LMS triumph since 2004 and the 41st overall of his career, including the national tour's original 1988-89 seasons. "It's nice. We're just an hour-and-a-half away (from the shop). It makes for a short trip home."

Driving his Moyer Extreme by Longhorn car, Moyer made a move worthy of an aggressive youngster to seize command following a lap-18 red flag for a multi-car accident in turn two involving contenders Rick Eckert of York, PA, Jared Landers of Batesville, AR, and Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, IL.

"When I was running fourth and Rick was second and took that outside (on a lap-15 restart), it surprised me that he went so good up there," said Moyer, who started sixth. "It turned out that the outside wasn't bad on the restart there. If you just were brave enough to get up there and not think that guy was gonna get underneath you, you could run up there in the middle a little bit."

Moyer's first WoO LMS win since April 6, 2013, at Farmer City (IL) Raceway came by 0.384 of a second over Lanigan, who closed up to Moyer's rear bumper in the final laps but couldn't find a way to regain the lead. Lanigan started from the pole position and led laps 1-6 in his Club 29 car.

"The track was a little choppy getting into one and you had to find the right groove
