Last week, Bill Mooney, driver of the No. 2 Lucas Oil MasterSbilt by JMR, scored another podium finish at the River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, keeping his season long top ten streak alive.

Bill jumped back behind the wheel after two weeks off last Friday at the River Cities Speedway, and recovered from what has become a rare bad draw, scoring a fourth place run in the heat race after starting sixth.

That finish was good enough to put him in the invert, so a fifth place starting spot awaited him in the night’s main event.
Bill made short work of getting to the front, eventually taking the lead from Brandon Fuller on the third lap.

Bill continued with the lead for the next ten circuits, as a battle with defending track champion Dustin Strand ensued.
in the final five laps, Bill swapped the second and third spots with Shane Edginton, scoring another podium finish.

Stat Attack:

Bill has one podium, one top five, and six top tens in six nights of competition thus far this season.

What’s Ahead:

The week features another go at the River Cities Speedway on Friday night.
