February 15th, 2014 - Below is a statement from Billy Moyer Jr. regarding Saturday night's event at East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Florida) with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

"I've run this exact same car in eight races during the Georgia/Florida Speedweeks with no technical issues at all. We were told while waiting in line to qualify on Saturday night that our car was out of tolerance. We went and made the change to be legal, and went out two cars late in the qualifying order due to the random, last-minute check by the series officials. My car was 100% legal during my qualifying run. I registered the second fastest time in my group as shown on the scoring board. However, I was notified after qualifying that the best I could start in my heat was fifth because I missed my spot in qualifying. I don't understand how my car could've been good for eight races, but in the final event I'm told it's no good. I made the decision to scratch from the balance of the program to save my equipment. I also elected to not use my series provisional to start the feature. I apologize to my fans and supporters for not racing tonight, but I felt that I had to make a stand after being done wrong."

Earlier in the day Moyer Jr. competed in a make-up event from Wednesday night's rain out. He set fast time in his group before winning his heat race to earn the 2nd starting spot for the 35 lap feature. With the track being held in daytime conditions Moyer Jr. would fall in line early in the event before registering a 4th place finish behind race winner, Bobby Pierce, Gregg Satterlee, and Steve Francis.

February 14th, 2014 - Billy Moyer Jr. resumed action at East Bay Raceway Park during the 38th Annual Winternationals on Friday night.

Forty-eight entries were signed in for round #5 of the Winternationals and Billy missed the transfer into the $10,000-to-win event via his heat race by just one position. Moyer Jr later won his b-main which locked into a 17th place starting spot for the 50 lap feature. When the 26-car field took the green flag, Billy was involved in a multi-car accident on the back-stretch which affected the handling of his #21 machine. Moyer went to the hot pit area for some minor repairs, but would bring out the caution flag again on lap 25 where his night came to a disappointing end and a 24th place finish.
