Barberville, FL — The UMP DIRTcar Super Late Models rolled into Volusia Speedway Park on Monday night with legendary Billy Moyer on cruise control as he and UMP DIRTcar Modified driver Dave Groves earned victories in the 37th Annual Alltel DIRTcar Nationals and became eligible in the Alltel All-Star contest.
Moyer was locked in all night as he won a Dirt Late Model feature for the fourth time in the past week. Groves held off hard-charging NASCAR star Ken Schrader during the intense closing laps by riding the top of the track and keeping Schrader pinned to the bottom.
Now it’s up to the fans. To support your favorite Alltel DIRTcar Nationals winner, which could be worth $12,000 to that driver, cast as many votes as possible at AlltelAllStar.com or send a text message with a driver’s Letter Code to 52191.
