Nineteen year-old rookie Christopher Bell of Norman, Okla., held off Daryn Pittman and Donny Schatz to earn the first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of his career on Wednesday night in the series’ first appearance at quarter-mile Jacksonville Speedway before a overflow crowd. On one of the smallest, most unique venues the Outlaws will see this season, Bell was masterful as he weaved through constant traffic after getting the jump on the initial green flag in the 40-lap A-main at Jacksonville’s quarter-mile oval.

I went down to O’Brien Field to photograph the next to last home game of the season of the Peoria Chiefs. Looking to shoot some behind the scenes stuff of the crowd rather than the game, after nearly six months of shooting baseball over the summer. Hope you enjoy the snapshots as I get ready for fall season.

Jared Mees won his third Expert 450 title in the last four years the June race was run at the Peoria Motorcycle Club. It was rained out in 2010. JD Beach from Philpot, KY finished strong to get second. Henry Wiles, who has won seven August Grand National TTs in a row, dominated his heat but had a horrible start in the main and finished third. Matthew Weidman was fourth and Morton rider Rob Pearson finished in fifth place. Adam Bushman took the lead on Lap 5 of the Pro Singles race and hung on to beat Walnut rider Dustin Cassidy and Nick Mataya from Blaine, MN. Alex Felland of Danville, Iowa, won the 450 Amateur race over 15-year-old Galesburg rider Blake Claeys and Molly Terry of Creve Coeur.
