Sitting in 15th as the field went green for the $128,000-to-win A-Main, Shirley improved six spots in the remaining 86 circuits to register a ninth-place finish.

On Thursday afternoon for a pair of preliminary features to kick off the 52nd annual World 100 weekend, Brian’s seventh-place finish in his heat race relegated him into the B-Main for another shot at the A-Main. Needing to place second or better, Shirley came one spot shy with a third-place outing.

For Friday’s prelim, Shirley laid down the 12th-fastest time in his group before capturing a heat race win. Recording a Top-5 finish in his 25-lap preliminary feature, Brian crossed the line in fifth, trailing Dale McDowell, Josh Rice, Chris Madden, and Garrett Smith across the line.

On Saturday, Brian posted a seventh-place finish in his heat, transferring into the B-Main for one last shot at the $55,000-to-win World 100 finale. Locking into the top-four, Shirley fell short with a 10th-place outing.
