Babb Scores Second Win of 2013 DIRTcar Summer Nationals “Hell Tour” at Quincy Raceways

Shannon Babb


QUINCY, Ill. — July 2, 2013 — Three-time Summer Nationals champion Shannon Babb out-dueled defending Summer Nationals champion Brian Shirley on Tuesday night at Quincy Raceways to capture his second win of the 2013 DIRTcar Summer Nationals “Hell Tour”.

Babb, of Moweaqua, Ill., used the top grove to pick up spots early as he rallied from his fourth starting position to second in seven laps. Shirley, the early race leader, built a half-straightaway lead, but within three laps Babb was knocking on his door. The two series champions battled door-to-door lap after lap before finally on lap 15, Babb moved in front. Shirley maneuvered his way back to the lead on lap 21, but contact with a lapped car while trying to hold off Babb ended Shirley’s chances of winning. Babb recaptured the lead and pulled away from the field, securing the $5,000 checkered flag.
