Shannon Babb led all 40 laps for a $5,000 payday at Farmer City.
What won the race: Leading all 40 laps, outside front-row starter Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill., held off Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., to pick up the $5,000 victory in the fifth annual Harland Kimler Jr. Memorial at Farmer City Raceway.
Quotable: "Jonathan's definitely, he's definitely been killing everybody this year, so I had the right starting position and Farmer City's always been good to me," Babb said. "I love racing around this place."
Key notes: Polesitter Ryan Unzicker finished fourth. ... Brandon Sheppard, running sixth at halfway, had a flat right-rear tire to end his race a few laps later. ...

WoO competitors head to Fairbury American Legion Speedway for Friday and Saturday's 26th annual Prairie Dirt Classic, which pays $26,000-to-win. ...
