BARBERVILLE, FL – February 13, 2019 – It took just one race for Billy Decker to return to his winning ways in the famous red No. 91 Gypsum Express Big-Block Modified, there was nothing easy about it on Wednesday night in DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. Not only did Decker, of Unadilla, NY, hold off teammate and reigning NAPA Super DIRT Week Champion Larry Wight, but he was forced to out-muscle legendary Billy Pauch to come away with the checkered flag. Wight and Pauch ran side-by-side for nearly half the race while trying to run down Decker.
