Babb Sixth in Gopher 50 Opener at Deer Creek Speedway
(July 9, 2024)
Shannon Babb Racing (SBR) invaded both Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota and Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois from July 4-8. The extended holiday weekend started with the annual 'Gopher 50' at Deer Creek, but Thursday's prelim show was nixed by rain and pushed back to Friday afternoon to set up a day/night doubleheader. In the first $7,000 to win show in the afternoon, Shannon Babb laid down the fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying session, won his heat race, and later placed sixth in the 30-lap main event. Under the lights, Shannon unfortunately missed out on the 30-lapper after finishing sixth in his heat race and tenth in his B-Main.

On Saturday evening, a whopping $50,000 top prize was up for grabs in the 'Gopher 50' grand finale. By virtue of his strong effort on Friday afternoon, Shannon locked himself into the 75-lap headliner and earned the inside of the sixth row by finishing fifth in the dash. When the checkered flag flew over the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Late Model Series field, the Moweaqua, Illinois ace found himself in the thirteenth finishing position.

Following a travel day on Sunday, it was back to work for the #18 team on Monday night in a Castrol FloRacing Night in America Series showdown at Lincoln Speedway. Shannon fought motor woes the entire evening, but was able to salvage a seventh place finish in his heat race and a twelfth place effort in the $20,000 to win feature.
