Bill Mooney Racing to Compete Against the World of Outlaw Late Models

A normal week of racing was on the card for Bill Mooney Racing last week, with two race at the team’s home tracks. First on Thursday night at the Red River Co-Op Speedway, Bill and his No. 2 Millar powered Rocket, finished second in his heat race, nearly picking off Mike Balcaen for the win when Balcaen got sideways in turn four on the final lap. In the main event, Bill started and finished in the fifth position, but that doesn’t mean Bill wasn’t busy during the race. The track surface was rough in the corners, causing the 2 car to turn hard to the right while exiting turn four on a couple of occasions. Fortunately for Bill, he had very little competition behind him for most of the event.

On Friday night at the River Cities Speedway Bill was a heat winner, besting Dustin Strand, whom he shared the front row with at the start of the race. It was mid-season championship night at the speedway, so Bill’s heat win earned him a starting spot on the outside of the front row for the main event. Hot weather and little rainfall made for a very dry racing surface, a stark contrast to what he saw the night before. Bill tried every line on the race track, but he could not make the car stick anywhere. After battles with Brad Seng, Dustin Strand, and Mike Balcaen, Bill finished the night with a sixth place finish.

Bill remains fifth in points at the Red River Co-Op Speedway, while he sits in the fourth position in points at the River Cities Speedway, just fourteen markers behind first place Joey Pederson.

Bill now has four top fives, and eight top tens in fourteen nights of racing so far this season.

This week Bill will compete against the best that Late Model Racing has to offer, as the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will make their second appearance at the Red River Co-Op Speedway.
