Brian Shirley shows off his big paycheck at Kankakee, Ill.
What won the race: Scoring his first MARS Racing Series presented by Rip-It victory of the season, defending series champion Brian Shirley of Chatam, Ill., claimed Friday's Big Daddy Scrap 50 to earn a $5,000 victory at Kankakee County Speedway.
Quotable: "We were lucky to get a good starting position at the start of the race," the second-starting Shirley said. "The outside was just a little bit better, so it was definitely up to my liking and I just got to get out there and get cruising and put in some good laps."
Key notes: Brian Shirley topped Mike Spatola and Taylor Scheffler to earn his 18th career MARS victory. ... Jason Feger climbed to a solid sixth-place finish after having a rough start to the evening. ... There hasn’t been a repeat winner in five series races this season. … Winners in 2021 include Ryan Unzicker, Garrett Alberson, Brandon Sheppard, Tanner English and now Shirley
On the move: Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill., started 11th and finished sixth.
