FARLEY, Ia. - April 29. Billy Moyer held off hard charging two time Dart Corn Belt Clash Champion Chad Simpson in the end to win night one of the $10,000 "May Daze Classic" at the Farley Speedway Friday to kick off the 2011 racing season. 
 
Shannon Babb had followed Moyer throughout the 50-lapper and was actually gaining on the six time "World 100" champion, but as fate would have it, Babb had a tire go down on lap 37, relinquishing his second place run. Kurt Kile

and Chad Simpson who had been battling back and forth in their own right all night long for the respective positions changed those spots once again as Simpson moved to second and set his sights on Moyer to hound him for the lead. Moyer would have none of it as he wheeled on to victory leading the final ten laps, making the ten hour tow from Batesville, Ark. worthwhile for his eighth win of the 2011 campaign.
