Hall of Famer Moyer takes MLRA victory on opening night at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, Missouri (April 9) - Lucas Oil Speedway kicked off a new season with one of dirt-racing's all-time greats putting on a show on a cool, windy Friday night.
Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer may be semi-retired, but he looked in vintage form with a wire-to-wire victory in the 30-lap Lucas Oil MLRA Spring Nationals Presented by RacingJunk.com. The Batesville, Ark., driver took home $2,000 and now will take aim on the $5,000 prize in Saturday night's finale.
Moyer, 58, won for only the second time at Lucas Oil Speedway since Forrest Lucas transformed the old Wheatland Raceway into a sparkling, state-of-the-art facility10 years ago. Moyer's only other feature victory here was in 2008.
Now racing only occasionally and still recovering from recent knee surgery, Moyer made it look easy.
"This is pretty good tonight. We hit everything pretty close to right," Moyer said in an Andy's Frozen Custard Victory Lane interview. "It didn't drive exactly the way I wanted it to, but it was fast. We had tons of traction, but we need to get it to center it a little better."
Moyer joked that he didn't remember his other win at Lucas Oil Speedway, eight years ago.
"That's a long, long time ago," he said, laughing. "I barely remember this track from when Forrest Lucas took it over and re-done it."
Mars, of Menomonie, Wis., gave futile chase to finish second. He was racing for the first time since January's excursion to the Wild West Shootout in Arizona.
"You want to win, but to get beat by Moyer, that's all right," the 44-year-old Mars said. "It's fun competing with him."
