Series report

LINCOLN, Ill. — April 17. The Monster Midwest Tour made its first appearance of the season at Lincoln Speedway Saturday for a regularly schedule event, as well as a makeup race for a rained-out show on April 2nd.  Shannon Babb and Iowa racer Brian Harris shared top honors in the twin events.

Babb topped the field of 25 in qualifying for the first race, then squeaked out a win in the first heat race after a back-and-forth squabble with fellow Illinois driver Jason Feger.  Harris and Brian Shirley also claimed heat race wins, but with the redraw among the top two finishers from each heat, it was Ryan Unzicker and Harris claiming front row starts.

Feger and Shirley slugged it out from the start, with Babb quickly joining the mix and Steve Sheppard, Jr. right behind. Shirley fell out of contention on lap 24 as he flew off the back straight-away berm trying to negotiate lapped traffic.

Back under green, a new three-way battle for top honors ensued as Babb found himself with his hands full of Dennis Erb and Sheppard. That fight would rage until the final caution flew for a loose infield tire that had been dislodged by a race car. With the restart, Babb kept Sheppard and Erb at bay to garner the win.

 In the second race, Harris claimed victory over Feger, Kevin Weaver, Sheppard, and Erb 

Finish - Lincoln SW Monster
