“We had a good car tonight,” Moyer Jr. said after the race. “We had a tough group. When you look up and it’s me and dad and (Shannon) Babb and Bobby (Pierce), you can’t get any tougher than that. We had fast time and won the heat and that’s how you’ve got to start the night. From there I was able to do my job and pick up the win.”

Taking control of the lead at the drop of the green flag, Billy held the top spot for the entire distance of the A-Main, capturing his second Hell Tour win and fourth victory overall of the season. Ryan Unzicker, Bobby Pierce, Shannon Babb, and Rusty Schlenk completed the Top-5 finishers.

Tony Jackson Jr. Comes Up Just Short in Tri-City Thriller
Lebanon, Missouri (06/28/17) –Tony Jackson Jr. led 39 of the 40 laps on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway in his Odell Trucking LLC #56 CMD Race Shocks/ MB Customs/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model. Unfortunately, he came up just a few feet short of leading the most important one as Dennis Erb Jr. slipped past at the checkered flag.
“I needed to move up,” Jackson said, “but it’s one of them deals when you lead 39 of 40 laps on the bottom, you hate to get out of your groove. Hindsight is always 20/20 in a situation like this. We had an awesome car tonight, but it’s frustrating because it seems like we’ve already had several near misses this year and tonight was just another one. We’ll hold our heads high though and move onto the next one.”
On Friday night Tony Jackson Jr. made his 2017 debut with the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Hell Tour in the $10,000-to-win event at Tri-City Speedway (Granite City, Illinois).
In a field of 33 cars, Jackson Jr. followed up the fourth-fastest time in his qualifying group with a heat race victory. Earning the 2nd-starting positon for the feature, Jackson Jr. fought off challengers for the first 39 circuits but came up short on the final lap. Unable to hold off a hard-charging Dennis Erb Jr. on the final corner, Tony landed a runner-up finish behind Erb with Chris Simpson, Shannon Babb, and Bobby Pierce rounding out the Top 5 finishers.
Full results from the program are available at www.TheHellTour.com .
This weekend, Tony will take the Mid America Racing Series (MARS) DIRTcar point lead into battle in a trio of events. On Friday and Saturday night he will compete in a pair of series events at Salina Highbanks Speedway (Salina, Oklahoma) before moving to Monett Speedway (Monett, Missouri) on Sunday evening.

Mark Burch Motorsports and Lasoski Capture First Win of Season at Knoxville
Inside Line Promotions - JOLIET, Ill. (June 28, 2017) - Mark Burch Motorsports scored its first victory of the season last Saturday during a special night.
The team's driver, Danny Lasoski, was inducted into the Knoxville Raceway Hall of Fame prior to the race at the half-mile oval in Knoxville, Iowa, which the team led from start to finish to earn the trip to Victory Lane.
"Being inducted was such an honor to me," he said. "My father and my uncle are in it. I can remember as a young guy dreaming of racing there let alone winning a race. To be inducted and top it off with win No. 112 is pretty neat."
Lasoski, who is the winningest driver in Knoxville Raceway history, opened the night by qualifying sixth quickest. He then placed sixth in a heat race.
"We weren't that good to start the night," he said. "We were eighth in points and they drew the No. 8 for the feature inversion so that put us on the front row."
Lasoski led the distance to garner his 112th career win at the oval.
"Hard work pays off," he said. "Mark has been working hard and getting the car better every week. We switched to Penske Shocks and it has been noticeable. The race car rolled around there pretty good."
Last weekend began on Friday when Lasoski made his debut at West Liberty Raceway in West Liberty, Iowa. The team qualified ninth quickest to kick off the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event.
"I don't think anyone had been there," he said. "It was an unknown. We drew the dead last number and ended up ninth in qualifying so it was a good effort. Unfortunately, the track conditions were treacherous. It laid rubber in the heat race and before it started in the main"
Lasoski placed fourth in a heat race before he picked up a position in the main event to end 11th.
Mark Burch Motorsports opened this week on Tuesday at The Dirt Oval at Route 66, which hosted its first World of Outlaws event in a dozen years. Lasoski qualified 14th quickest before he finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position in the FVP Outlaw Clay Classic main event.
Lasoski pulled off the track early because of a mechanical problem and was credited with a 24th-place finish.

Kevin Swindell and Bayston Score All Star Ohio Speedweek Win at Muskingum
Inside Line Promotions - CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (June 28, 2017) - The duo of Kevin Swindell and Spencer Bayston put together a great comeback story last week during the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Speedweek.
The Swindell Speed Lab backed team struggled on June 17 at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, where Bayston qualified seventh in his group, placed sixth in a heat race and ended 10th in the B Main.
Two nights later the results didn't fare much better at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, where Bayston timed in ninth in his group, finished sixth in a heat race and crashed in the B Main.
"Qualifying put us behind and once you're behind in that format it's easy to stay behind," Swindell said. "We killed that car in the B Main at Wayne County and had to put the spare car together to get back out there."
The team returned to competition last Thursday at Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville, Ohio, where Bayston set quick time in his group. He then placed third in a heat race to lock into a dash. He pulled the No. 1 during the random redraw to start on the pole and capitalized. Bayston won the dash to line up on the pole for the main event.
"This car is a hair different, but not much," Swindell said. "It was good right out of the box. That was the type of race track where he excels."
Bayston led the distance of the race to record his second career sprint car victory and his first-ever Ohio Speedweek win.
"It was very validating," he said. "All that hard work and late nights building that new car paid off. The whole night we were fast. Kevin had it dialed in. I think we could have drove to the front, but when I caught traffic our lap times were way slower. Something I've learned in the sprint car is clean air is so important and being out front is such an advantage so it was helpful that we drew so well."
Speedweek concluded on Saturday at Atomic Speedway, where Bayston qualified third quickest in his group. He finished where he started - second - in both a heat race and a dash to line up on the inside of the second row for the main event.
Bayston took the lead on Lap 6 and held onto the top spot for half the race before being passed with only nine laps remaining.
"There are certain guys like Cole Duncan that are so good on the slick Ohio tracks," he said. "On the longer runs I was really good, but not as much on shorter runs. On a restart Duncan showed his nose in the middle and drove right by me. He just got better at the end. We had an early red flag and we were spitting out oil. We were working on that rather than working on the car to get it a tick better and I think that could have hurt us at the end of the race."
Bayston finished in the runner-up position, which marked his sixth top five of the season.
"We had smooth nights and made good decisions with the car and he put himself in the right places," Swindell said. "I think that's the true showing of what we're able to do. We got ourselves down after the first two nights thinking we didn't know what we were doing. The last two nights were like how we started the year."
Swindell and Bayston are slated to return to action this Friday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions.

Clauson-Marshall Racing Eyes Illinois Triple on Heels of Capturing Indiana Midget Week Crown
Lonnie Wheatley, NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (June 28, 2017) – The Clauson-Marshall Racing team returns to action with a trio of USAC National Midget events this weekend in Illinois, beginning on Saturday night at Macon Speedway before moving on to Lincoln Speedway on Sunday and then Springfield’s Illinois State Fairgrounds Multi-Purpose Arena on Monday.
The CMR trio of Tyler Courtney, Shane Golobic and Justin Grant will certainly carry some momentum into the weekend triple coming off the heels of an ultra-successful Indiana Midget Week earlier this month.
Over the course of USAC’s Indiana Midget Week that included six events at six different tracks from June 6 to June 11, the CMR team picked off a pair of feature wins and finished 1-2 in Indiana Midget Week points with a podium sweep at Bloomington among the highlights.
“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney delivered both of the team’s wins during the week with triumphs in the opening round at Montpelier and then the fourth leg at Bloomington, but it was Shane Golobic coming away with the week’s championship by edging Courtney for the top spot by just six points as Justin Grant finished out the week seventh.
“This is awesome, words don’t describe it,” Fremont, California’s Golobic said after earning the Indiana Midget Week crown aboard the Matt Wood Racing/Clauson-Marshall Racing Elk Grove Ford No. 17w Midget.
Golobic’s week was one of great consistency with five finishes of sixth or better along with an eighth-place Gas City run to make for a 100 percent top-ten rate. Golobic finished it off with his best run of the week, a runner-up finish in the Kokomo finale to edge Courtney for the crown.
“They turned a winged Sprint Car driver into a heckuva Midget racer,” Golobic commented. “To turn someone like me into an Indiana Midget Week champ says a lot about this team.”
Along with his Montpelier and Bloomington wins, Courtney’s week aboard the Driven2SaveLives No. 7bc included podium showings of third at both Putnamville and Kokomo along with a fifth-place run at Lawrenceburg. His only night outside the top five was the team’s lone DNF of the week at Gas City, which proved to be the difference between capturing the title and finishing second in points.
“It’s hard not to be excited,” Courtney said after the finale. “Our team did something pretty special this week. We swept the podium, ran 1-2 in Midget Week points and had two wins this week. I’m happy to be with this CMR team, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
Ione, California native Justin Grant made his presence known as well over the course of Indiana Midget Week aboard the CMR No. 39bc, racking up three top-five finishes and another pair of seventh-place runs with a runner-up finish in the CMR sweep of the Bloomington podium his top showing of the six-race set.
With the Indiana Midget Week hardware securely in place upon the CMR mantle, the team looks to add more to the collection with this weekend’s USAC National Midget triple in Illinois.
Up Next: USAC National Midgets at Macon (IL) Speedway on Saturday (July 1), Lincoln (IL) Speedway on Sunday (July 2) and Springfield’s Illinois State Fairgrounds Multi-Purpose Arena on Sunday (July 3).
