1July 27th, 2013 - Kent Robinson continued his ultra-busy week on Friday night by taking part in the opening round of the 24th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic at Fairbury American Legion Speedway (Fairbury, Illinois).

The World of Outlaws (WoO) Super Late Model tour sanctioned the $20,000-to-win event at the legendary, 1/4 mile oval as 52 entries registered for battle. In time trials Kent struggled, which left him starting 8th in his heat race. He would climb to a 5th place finish in his heat, which left him two spots short of a transfer to the main event. As a result he ran a b-main on Saturday night, and with the top two cars moving onto the main event he slipped to an 8th place finish, which ended his chances of qualifying for the $20,000-to-win feature.

Despite not getting to run the 100 lap finale he did earn the 10th starting spot for the non-qualifier's race, and he would claw his way forward in the $2,000-to-win race to finish 2nd behind race winner, Clint Smith.

On Saturday evening Robinson also piloted the #85 Jones Oil UMP Open Wheel Modified in a $3,000-to-win race. Kent started his night by setting fast time in his group and winning his heat race to lock into the redraw for the feature, where he was the recipient of the 3rd starting spot. Kent had high hopes for the feature, but mechanical woes would end his night early in the 21st position.
