Moyer Takes Late Lead to "Bama Brawl" Victory

Connie Putnam

TUSCUMBIA, Ala. - Sept. 5. Billy Moyer, Jr. of Batesville, Ark., stepped out of his comfort zone and took on the deep south drivers logged into North Alabama Speedway's annual "Bama Brawl" Sunday. The second generation ace showed some late-race muscle on a restart and drove into a lead with ten laps to go to claim the biggest win of his budding career to date.

Beating outside poleman Moyer to the punch, Mississippi MSCCS points leader David Breazeale set fast time for the 30-plus entries and drove into the lead from the pole position. Moyer fell back to battle among the top five with Tim Busha and area standouts Anthony Burroughs and Mark Mears.

As the laps wound down, Busha nailed down second and challenged Breazeale for the lead, but spun as the two mashed some sheet metal. With Busha headed to the rear of the field, Moyer jumped to the track's top side and got around both Burroughs and Breazeale and showed the way for the remainder.

Breazeale hung on to second, while Mears used his extensive time on this track to pass Burroughs for third in the final circuits.
