FARMER CITY, Ill. - July 8.  Brandon Sheppard is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with on the DirtCar Summer Nationals "Hell Tour" after winning Friday night at Farmer City Raceway. Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., started fifth and dueled with current 'Hell Tour' point leader Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill., over 40-laps to earn his second DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory worth $10,000.

Speedway where he won his first ever 'Hell Tour' event.  Babb finished second, his 11th top-10 finish on this year's tour, which is four more than any other driver during the Summer
