Second at Jacksonville Summer Nationals

jacksonville jun18Starting on the pole, Bobby looked to be on his way to his first DIRTcar Summer Nationals win of the season Tuesday night at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway as he built up a three-second advantage by lap 15. Leading the first 37 laps of the 40-lap affair, Bobby got hung up in traffic allowing Sheppard to get by on the bottom. “You never know what’s really going on behind you,” Bobby said. “I seen B-Shepp there, but I was just hoping they were gonna give me a little hole and I was gonna shoot in there and slide ‘em, but the next corner, Brandon got under both of them and he kinda just came on up and they had to get on the brakes. Next time I just need to be a little more aggressive, but at the same time you don’t want to tear your stuff up, take a chance trying to rough them out of the way and you end up spinning out. You don’t want that. All in all, second is a good points night." -- Brendon Bauman Photo
