Junior's worthy ascension

The most consequential season of Billy Moyer Jr.’s Dirt Late Model career — a campaign that has seen him not only emerge as the 2016 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series Rookie of the Year but also become a feature winner on the national tour — has thrust him into a position he’s been striving to reach since he began circling dirt tracks a decade ago.

As Moyer, 28, of Batesville, Ark., heads into this weekend’s WoO-season-ending Bad Boy Off Road World Finals at The Dirt Track at MORE
