CANTON, Ill. – Jon Henry got his first taste of victory on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour Tuesday night at Spoon River Speedway.
Henry earned $5,000 for his efforts in turning back multiple challenges from defending Hell Tour Champion Shannon Babb.
Henry led from the drop of the green and meticulously worked lapped traffic while being aided by two late cautions that allowed the 26-year-old driver to have a clear track for the remainder of the 40-lap main event.
Babb, who sat second in points entering the night, finished second ahead of fellow group quick-timer Brian Shirley.
Billy Drake and Scott Bull rounded out the top five.
The tour will return to action Wednesday night at Highland (Ill.) Speedway where Scott James won the Summer Nationals event in 2011.
