BATESVILLE, Ark. – Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer, who is coming off a seven-win 2013 season that was highlighted by capturing the inaugural National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) point title, announced today some of his intentions for the upcoming 2014 campaign.

After spending most of the past seven years behind the wheel of a Moyer Victory Circle racecar, Moyer has formed an exclusive partnership with Bobby Labonte Racing, Longhorn Chassis and Kevin Rumley to help design a new chassis for the 2014 racing season. Longhorn Chassis, which is based out of Trinity, N.C., was founded in 2010 by NASCAR champion Bobby Labonte, along with his brother and two-time NASCAR Champion, Terry Labonte.

“We had some terrific success with Victory Circle over the past seven years and I can’t thank everyone out there in California enough for their help and support,” said Moyer. “Although we are working with Longhorn for 2014, we will remain a dealer for Victory Circle and will still have a full repair center to assist clients that have Moyer Victory Circle cars.”

The partnership with Longhorn Chassis will put Moyer and his son Billy Moyer Jr. in a close working relationship with standout Longhorn drivers Earl Pearson Jr. and Steve Shaver. Billy Moyer will debut his new Moyer Extreme by Longhorn racecar in the National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) booth at the PRI Trade Show in Indianapolis, Ind., on Dec. 12-14. The Batesville, Ark., standout is currently undecided about his 2014 schedule, but should be ready to announce some plans following the PRI Show next month.

“By aligning ourselves with Bobby Labonte Racing, Rumley Racing, Earl Pearson Jr., and Steve Shaver, we have a lot of experience and knowledge to draw from in getting these new Moyer Extreme by Longhorn cars rolling,” Moyer said. “Kevin Rumley is one of the sharpest guys in our industry and he and I seem to have the same vision in making these racecars go fast. I look forward to working with everyone at Longhorn Chassis and getting the Moyer Extreme by Longhorn out on the market through our Billy Moyer Racing shop.”

In addition to designing the new chassis, BMR will manage all sales and parts exclusively for the new Moyer Extreme by Longhorn with the exception of the Longhorn home states of North Carolina and South Carolina.
