It was a successful night one in the new car for Bill Mooney, driver of the No. 2 Lucas Oil Millar Powered MasterSbilt by JMR, as he lead a lap, and scored another top five finish.

As most of you who follow us on a regular basis know, Bill doesn’t have the best luck at the draw window. This tradition continued at the River Cities Speedway last Friday, as Bill drew an 85 out of 100, placing Bill in the fifth starting spot in his six car heat race.

It was Midco T.V. night at the River Cities Speedway last Friday night, and things got off to an inauspicious start at the draw window, once again, as he drew the 94 pill. The draw being out off 100, meant Bill knew right away he’d be starting towards the back of his heat race.

The problem was exacerbated by heavy rain that fell in the Grand Forks area thoughout Thursday and early Friday morning, making for a very fast, but narrow track.

Bill started sixth, and improved one spot, running fifth...
