Babb Tops Tri-State

Tuesday July 7, 2015

HAUBSTADT, Ind. – July 5, 2015 – Shannon Babb passed Billy Moyer Jr. in heavy lapped traffic with two laps to go on Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway to earn his third DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory of the season.

Babb, of Moweaqua, Ill., started sixth and kept pushing forward in the 40-lap feature, eventually catching and passing Moyer Jr. to take the $5,000 checkered flag and tie Billy Moyer with 90 DIRTcar Summer Nationals victories atop the all-time win list.

“It was pretty wild out there,” Babb said. “It always is here at Haubstadt. It’s racy as can be and lapped traffic always plays into it a little bit. Billy (Moyer Jr.) was leading the thing, it’s really hard to get off the corner here, so everybody was using the cushion or whatever they could use. It was just good racing everywhere on this place.”

Points leader Bobby Pierce was also able to get past Moyer Jr. on the last lap to finish second while Scott James and Dennis Erb Jr. rounded out the top five.
