Kent Robinson Parties at Oakshade Like It’s His Birthday
Bloomington, Indiana (07/17/17) – Kent Robinson picked up his richest win of 2017 on Saturday night in his Billy Moyer Victory Race Car #7r JB’s Salvage/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model. He pocketed $10,000 for his performance in the annual Birthday Race at Oakshade Raceway.
On Friday night Kent Robinson made the trip to Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon, Ohio), closing out the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Hell Tour with a doubleheader weekend. Drawing a stout field of 59 Super Late Models, Robinson followed up the second-fastest time in his qualifying group with a runner-up finish in his heat behind Cody Mahoney. Rolling off 9th for the $5,000-to-win A-Main, Kent was an early retiree from the feature after his right-rear tire sealed over, while challenging for a Top-5 finish.
Pacing his way through the 60-lapper early, Robinson began to make his charge for the lead following lap-21 restart. In seven laps he would move from fifth to the lead as he worked the high side of the dirt oval. After taking the lead, Kent Robinson charged to his fourth win of the season, which came over Devin Shiels, Brandon Thirlby, Jon Henry and Brian Ruhlman. Kent pocketed a $10,000 payday for his late-race victory in the 60-lap affair.
“I’m not going to lie, when we got the 6th-starting spot for the feature in the redraw I wasn’t happy at all,” said Robinson. “I really thought the track was going to be more one-laned than it was in the feature. After that lap-21 restart I was able to find a bit of an outside groove in turns 1 and 2, and that got me to the lead.
“I just have to thank my team, my family, and all of my sponsors for all of the support and hard work that they put into this racing operation.”
This Friday will find Kent traveling to Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Illinois) to take part in the 7th Annual JR Kimler Memorial. The event will be highlighted by a $3,000-to-win finale for Super Late Models. For more information, please visit www.FarmerCityRacing.com .

Billy Moyer Jr. Doubles Up in Hell Tour Action
The wins brought his tally for the series to four and gave him six victories overall on the season. He finished second in the overall final standings for the Hell Tour.
“It was awesome to end the Summernationals with a pair of wins and the week championship,” Moyer Jr. said. “We really wanted the overall championship, but there’s no shame in finishing second. Congrats to Bobby [Pierce] he did a great job, and maybe next year we’ll be able to get the championship.
I want to thank my crew guys because they’ve had a lot of sleepless nights over the past month, and they’ve worked incredibly hard. We’re all looking forward to a little bit of a break here as we prepare for the second half of the season.”
