COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS)
Billy Moyer Jr. Victorious in CCSDS Cotton Pickin Opener
COLUMBUS, Miss. (09/22/23) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Model Series opened the Cotton Pickin’ presented by Whelen Engineering weekend on Friday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway, and Billy Moyer Jr. emerged victorious by a mere 0.0109 seconds over a hard-charging Evan Ellis to score the $4,000 victory
“We were pacing through lapped traffic there because some of those guys were having a hard time, and Evan (Ellis) got by me, and thankfully I was able to get back around him one lap later. I was trying to hit my marks there late, and it all worked out,” Moyer Jr. said in FloRacing Victory Lane. “Thanks to Henderson Motorsports, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Phillips CPA, all my sponsors, and everybody who makes this possible. With what the Henderson family has done this year, providing me with this ride, it allows me to focus on driving the car, and I can’t thank them enough for that. We’re focused on getting the championship, and this was a great night for us.”
From the NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Position Moyer Jr. jumped to the lead as the 40-lap feature went green. Moyer held onto the top spot until third-starting Evan Ellis took control in lapped traffic on the 21st circuit. One lap later Moyer Jr. retook the top spot.
He survived a few late-race cautions and a last-lap charge from Ellis to take the win by 0.109 seconds.
The CCSDS victory was his third of the 2023 season and the 23rd of his career.
Ashton Winger, Clay Stuckey, and Sam Seawright rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
Jeremy Shaw was the MD3 Five Star Bodies Hard Charger after advancing from 17th to seventh in the feature.
