Following a day off on Thursday, the Billy Moyer Racing (BMR) team rolled into Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois on Friday evening for another UMP Summer Nationals showdown.  With light rain falling much of the night, Billy once again swept the night's racing program in the Land of Lincoln.  He set Fast Time in qualifying, won his heat race, and then paced the feature field for all forty circuits to claim the $10,000 winner's check.  Billy reached the checkers ahead of Bobby Pierce, Shannon Babb, Mike Spatola, and Kevin Weaver at the 1/4-mile, fairgrounds venue!
