    Shirley, who is second in Summer Nationals point standings, started on pole and held off a late rally by Kyle Logue of Oreana, Ill., to earn his first tour win since 2010. Logue used the knowledge he gained running at Fayette County in a DIRTcar UMP Modified earlier in his racing career and charged from 11th to finish second. Wendell Wallace of Batesville, Ark., was third. Jason Feger, the 2010 Summer Nationals champion from Bloomington, Ill., finished fourth while Jon Henry of Ada, Ohio, started 15th and rallied to finish fifth.
