Billy Moyer heads for a victory in his native state at Independence.
What won the race: Polesitter Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., led all 40 laps of the Lucas Oil Midwest LateModel Racing Association feature at Independence Motor Speedway, finishing 2.786 seconds ahead of Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas, for a $3,000 victory.
Quotable: "We just keep working at it, we're doing a bunch of new stuff here," said Moyer, who scored his second win of 2017 and first since Arizona's Wild West Shootout in January "We've had a lot of ups-and-downs. Were learning what we needed to learn. Just hopefully we keep getting a little bit better."
Key notes: Billy Moyer recorded his 42nd career MLRA triumph and the 818th overall victory of his Hall of Fame career. ... The feature went caution-free with 16 of the 24 starters finishing on the lead lap. ... Sanders and Chris Simpson ran second and third, respectively, for the entire distance. ... Drivers failing to transfer to the A-feature were Jeremy Grady and Mike Stadel. ... Fourth-place finisher Brent Larson recorded his best run of the three-race MLRA Iowa swing. ... MLRA's visit to Independence was the first-ever for the series and capped a three-race swing in Iowa; Chris Simpson (Lee County) and Bobby Pierce (Davenport) won the opening two legs.
On the move: B-feature winner Dave Eckrich of Oxford, Iowa, started 16th and finished 12th.
Winner's sponsors: The winning Moyer Victory Race Car is sponsored by Mesilla Valley Transport, Henderson Motorsports, Crop Production Services, Karl Performance, Jack’s CarQuest, Watters Autoland and Midwest Sheet Metal.
