Moyer Jr., the 2009 Comp Cams Series champion who won the tour’s first stop at Northeast Arkansas on June 9, led all but one lap in topping runner-up Jon Kirby of Russellville, Ark., in Saturday night’s feature race followed by Robert Baker of Bryant, Ark. First-lap leader Jon Mitchell of Texarkana, Ark., and Todd Hall of Charleston, Mo., rounding out the race’s top five finishers in the 100th all-time series event.
A melee on a lap-25 restart knocked out several drivers when Kirby drifted up the track into Kyle Beard, pinching him into the frontstretch wall. Beard's lame car slowed on the frontstretch and was struck by the cars of Keith Lawson, Curtis Cook, Brandon Smith and Derrick Richter. Cook was taken to the hospital with what was thought to be a broken arm; other drivers were sore but otherwise uninjured. The cleanup took 30 minutes.
