FARMER CITY, IL – They say home-field advantage really does make a difference. Rocket1 Racing pilot Brandon Sheppard made quite a backing to that statement on Saturday night, as he played his cards perfectly through the 75-lap Morton Buildings Feature to win the 12th annual Illini 100 presented by Douglas Dodge.

Meanwhile, Pierce had a stellar run on the topside, right where he’s so frequently found, coming all the way from his 16th starting spot to complete the podium.
