Group A during time trials and later finished sixth in his heat
race, while teammate Brian Shirley laid down the sixteenth quickest
lap in Group B prior to running eighth in his respective heat
Following a rain-out on Saturday evening, both drivers returned

of IL State Championship

way to Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois on Saturday evening,
October 4 for the annual running of the 'Illinois State Championship.'
Brian laid down the fourth quickest lap overall during the UMP
qualifying session and later finished second in heat race action.

lead from Ray Guss, Jr. and led virtually the entire 100-lap distance
until an incident in the waning laps with Jason Feger. Instead
of celebrating a $5,000 triumph, Brian was left to salvage a third
place effort behind only race winner Brandon Sheppard and runner-up
Ryan Unzicker. Full results from Peoria Speedway can be accessed
