Pittsburgh, PA (March 26, 2013) Two of the most recognized names in the dirt late model industry, Muscatine, IA's Brian Birkhofer and Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR, are set to help the National Dirt Racing League kick off their inaugural season with two blockbuster $20,000 to-win events on March 29 and 30 at Paducah (KY) International Raceway and Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, MO.
'I've never met (NDRL Owner) John Kennedy but I'd like to shake his hand,' said 2012 World 100 winner Brian Birkhofer about series founder John Kennedy. 'I applaud the guy for what he's doing and trying something that is financially stout.' Billy Moyer, a six time World 100 champion as well as a six time I-55 UMP Nationals Champion also commended Kennedy, 'He's sticking his neck out there,' Moyer said, 'He's trying to build something, I'm going to be there to support him in the first two and more than likely we're going to try to do all of them. I just have a lot of appreciation for a guy that steps up to the plate like that and has a $20,000 to-win one day show to win for a racer it doesn't get any better than that.'
