"It is quite an honor to have someone of Billy's stature running
our car and I can't wait until East Bay and Screven rolls around,"
exclaimed car owner Tye Twarog today via telephone. "It just
shows that we have some great equipment when someone like Billy
(Moyer) agrees to jump behind the wheel. He has a tremendous record
during Speedweeks, but especially at East Bay where he has like
27 career Winternationals victories. We already had plans to run
Devin Moran in one of our cars for the week at Volusia, but when
this deal came about with Billy, it was a no-brainer to go down
a week earlier and run six nights with him at East Bay and Screven!"
