and 3rd

(Middlebourne, WV) Labor Day weekend, the great State of West Virginia and
the Hillbilly 100 has been a perfect match for the dirt racing community

current home, Tyler County Speedway and the racing world witnessed one of
the most extraordinary 100 lap features in the history of the sport. Steve
Shaver of Parkersburg, WV out-dueled Donnie Moran and Rick Aukland over the
last ten laps, racing 3-wide most of the time, posting a most impressive
victory. The Hillbilly 100 title went the way of Davey Johnson in 1999 and
2000. The Greensburg, PA driver showed the world his short track mastery by
dominating the Hillbilly 100 with back to back wins over the best in the
business. Ever since the move to Tyler County Speedway in 1998 race fans
from all over the country have proclaimed the Hillbilly 100 as the "must
