After laying down the fastest lap in Group B during the World of Outlaws Late Model Series qualifying session, Billy went on to win his heat race and later drew the number three starting spot for the 50-lapper. “Mr. Smooth” then took the lead from Eric Wells on the eleventh circuit and raced to the $10,000 triumph over Rick Eckert, Darrell Lanigan, Dennis Erb, Jr., and Shane Clanton!
