Babb Crowned Late Model Summer Nationals Champion
Shannon Babb, who only needed a 19th place finish to secure his fourth DIRTcar Summer Nationals title, finished in the third position and easily scored the $25,000 series title for the first time since 2011.
Babb did what he needed to do in order to recapture the championship trophy. Babb glued himself to Unzicker’s back-bumper, and even challenged him for the second position in the final stages of the race.
Babb settled for a third place finish - which was his series leading 17 th top-five finish to go with four victories – as he captured his fourth career DIRTcar Summer Nationals title by 38-points over Ryan Unzicker.
“It’s really hard to get these,” said Babb, who admitted to getting nervous before the race started. “Thirty nights of racing is a lot. You have a lot of ups and downs, but we got it done.”
Adding to the grueling schedule, the DIRTcar Summer Nationals are held during often oppressive summer heat. Babb uses VP Racing Fuels Late Model Plus, a fuel that excels in these conditions helping reduce engine temperature far better than other competitors' fuels.
Matt Miller, of Whitehouse, Ohio, won the 40-lap feature after starting in the third position
Shannon Babb, of Moweaqua, Ill., started the feature in the seventh position, just behind championship rivals Ryan Unzicker and Brian Shirley. Babb chased Unzicker through the field, eventually finding their way to the front, as Shirley was a non-factor and finished in the sixth position.
