race and his B-Main before securing a victory in the B-Scramble.
The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer rolled off from the tail of the
$127,000 to win headliner and was an early retiree in the 100-lap
affair, as he was paid for a twenty-fourth place performance.
The 26th edition of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream' was up next at
the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant over the weekend. On Friday,

race, and later won his B-Main. The Batesville, Arkansas star then
moved up six positions during the course of his $10,000 to win Twin
25 to land in the fifteenth spot. The Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team
then chose to scratch from Saturday's grand finale, which shelled
out a $126,000 paycheck, after starting deep in one of the heat
races. Full results from each of the four days at Eldora Speedway
