By Tyson Graves (Track Announcer)


Farmer City (July 9, 2021) - Shannon Babb started winning Summer National races over twenty years ago. He never thought all these years later that he would have won 100 of these things. "It's pretty mind blowing really if you think about it." said Shannon after his win on Friday night. Shannon's 100th career win couldn't have happened at much of a better place. After Shannon picked up his 99th win a couple weeks ago at Fairbury Speedway, everyone knew it was just a matter of time before he got number 100. Over the year's Farmer City Raceway has been pretty good to Babb. He has hauled in some big wins here over his career.


It was also a historic night in the Modified division as Nick Hoffman won his 50th career Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals event. He has been a perfect 12 for 12 in the Summer Nationals events he has competed. What is even more impressive is he has led every lap of every feature event he has been in.


In Pro Late Model division it was Aaron Heck who came home with the win. He held off Dakota Ewing for the victory. In the last feature of the night Nick Macklin picked up his third feature win of the year at Farmer City.


It was an exciting event on Friday night as the program was in hurry up mode due to threating weather. All events were ran before the rain came. It was a successful night for the Farmer City Raceway on one of the biggest events of the year. Baum Chevy-Buick was the title sponsor for the event.
