Tim Fuller Checks Out For Canandaigua Victory June 18, 2016

Tim Fuller Checks Out For Canandaigua Victory

CANANDAIGUA, NY – ”We’ve finished second and third a lot this year. It feels good to win one,” stated Tim Fuller in victory lane last Saturday at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. “Sheppard always seems to have the edge here so winning is tough. We just keep plugging away.”

The 35-lap DIRTcar Modified feature saw Gil Tegg Jr. jump into the lead at the drop of the green. Mike Mahaney moved into second on lap three and began to challenge Tegg Jr. for the lead. Mahaney’s opportunity came on lap seven. Using the low side of the track, Mahaney charged up next to Tegg but could not complete the pass. Two laps later he tried the outside, but flying through the pack was Tim Fuller who moved to the middle making for a three wide charge for the lead. Fuller was able to take first and begin to draw away from the rest of the pack.

By lap 20 Fuller had pulled away to a full 3.45 second lead over Alan Johnson in lapped traffic. On lap 22, Sheppard drove hard to pass Mahaney for third. But even his charge would fall short as Fuller took the win followed by Johnson, Sheppard, Mahaney and Mat Williamson rounding out the top five finishers. The green-to-checkers finish saw the race average speed at 88.993 mph around the fast half mile oval.

Brandon Sheppard Sweeps Preliminary Shows at Eldora June 10, 2016

Brandon Sheppard Sweeps Preliminary Shows at Eldora

ROSSBURG, Ohio – June 10, 2016 – “Two” seemed to be the lucky number Friday night at the 22nd Annual Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, as Brandon Sheppard and Jared Landers became the duo to win the double-feature program in front of a packed crowd.

The Big E’s 24-degree banking is where most of the battles were held during the first feature. The victory was not only Sheppard’s fourth of the year, but also a follow-up to Thursday night’s win. Sheppard is the most recent driver to sweep both preliminary nights of an event weekend at the track since Jonathan Davenport did it in 2015.

Sheppard ran a similar race as the night before. His No. B5 Best Performance Motorsports Rocket machine started on the outside of first place, and he eventually shut the door on the rest of the 24-car field within the first five laps. Sheppard cleared his car for the lead at turn four on lap four.

“We got lucky starting in the front row both nights, but we had a strong car tonight,” Sheppard said. “This is a new car for this track for us. We tried a bunch of different stuff and last night we found a setup that worked. We stuck with that.”

Chris Brown, who started the race in first, began to fall from the podium when the No. 28 McBride Mac/ V.O. Mack Truck Sales Black Diamond car of Dennis Erb Jr. undertook Brown on lap six. Erb thereon challenged Sheppard for the lead, sticking to the bottom of the track; Sheppard relied on sheer momentum on the outside. This battle went on for the remainder of the race, and despite the two cautions in the stretch, Erb could only close the gap to 0.065 seconds.

“I think we just out-tired the rest of the field,” Sheppard said. “I think having the right tires was the reason I could enter above the holes and stay up around the wall. I think that’s where we could keep our momentum.”

Bobby Pierce rounded-out the podium with a thrilling pass on Billy Moyer with 12 laps remaining. Pierce glided under Moyer through turn four in his No. 32 Allgayer Inc./ Champion Spark Plugs Bob Pierce machine, forcing Moyer to forfeit the spot. Moyer did not have the speed to fend-off Pierce’s push.

Jeremy Payne was third, Thursday night’s winner, Cade Dillard finished fourth and last year’s Longdale winner, Johnny Scott, rounded out the top five.

Points leader Jason Hughes was sixth, Dereck Ramirez earned a seventh-place paycheck, Jesse Sobbing started and finished eighth, rookie contender Mike Jergens nabbed the ninth spot and Chad Wheeler completed the top 10.

Sheppard Wins Ultimate Outlaw 50 June 8, 2016

Sheppard Wins Ultimate Outlaw 50

DUNDEE, NY – ‘Super Matt’ Sheppard had luck on his side during the redraw of Wednesday night’s Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series event, drawing the pole for the ‘Ultimate Outlaw 50’ at Outlaw Speedway.

The fourth round of the Halmar International North Region Series saw Sheppard and Sprakers, NY driver Stewart Friesen occupy the front row for Steve Kellogg’s green flag. Sheppard, as he often is, was the rabbit out front in the Norm’s Save Station No. 357 leading Friesen during the opening laps.

Sheppard had already caught slower traffic on lap eight of the fifty-lap feature. Danny Johnson pulled off the track on lap twelve, as his Outlaw Speedway woes seemed to have returned. Joe Dgien put the field under caution on the next lap with a flat left rear tire.

At the lap thirteen yellow it was Sheppard leading Friesen, Andy Bachetti and Danny Creeden in the Smoker’s Choice No. 16x. Sheppard ran off again on the restart, keeping Friesen back at an arm’s length behind him in the Halmar International No. 44.

Anthony Perrego had to take a provisional to get into the feature event, with his night ending on lap eighteen when he took the New York Truck Parts No. 55 to the trailer. Penn Yan, NY driver Derrick Podsiadlo would encounter trouble just two laps later when his Penn Yan Express Stop 21 car came to a stop in turn two. Tommy Meier had nowhere to go and slid into the side of Podsiadlo, drawing the yellow.

Eight-time Outlaw Speedway track champion Steve “The Hurricane” Paine had charged from his twelfth starting spot to the top five by lap twenty-four. But a flat left rear would see his Swarthout Recycling machine slow and bring out another caution. Paine would change the tire and return to finish eleventh.

The next mechanical casualty was Mike Mahaney in the Buzz Chew powered No. 88, as Mahaney broke a shock coming down the front stretch. Mahaney also appeared to have lost the spring on the bottom of the frontstretch, would take his car to the hot pit lane for repairs and return to finish sixteenth.

As Sheppard led the field back to green on lap twenty-nine, he would start to put some distance on Friesen as Sheppard was wicked fast on the bottom lane. Sheppard could seemingly put the car anywhere he needed to as he also made the cushion work through turns three and four.

Friesen’s great run in second would be dashed on lap forty-two, as he would come up lame with a flat right rear tire. He would get the tire changed on the hot pit lane without losing a lap and rejoin the field with eight to go to recover to a twelfth place finish.

With eight laps to go, Erick Rudolph had quietly manipulated his way into the runner-up spot- capitalizing on the Friesen flat tire. Rudolph won the last Modified feature this past Friday and would have one more shot at Sheppard in the lead. He would not catch him.

Outlaw Speedway regular Billy Van Pelt also made big moves in the second half of the event, moving up to a top five finish from his twenty-first starting position coming from the Consi.

Out front it was all Matt Sheppard, all the time, as Sheppard pulled away in the closing eight laps to score another victory at the ‘Fast Four-Tenths Mile’ and his first at Outlaw with the No. 357 ride. The win in the ‘Ultimate Outlaw 50’ was also the first Short Track Super Series event held at the dirt track nestled in the village of Dundee.

“You know it’s a long drive for those guys to come up here,” said Sheppard of the team he moonlights with in the No. 357. “I kind of talked them into it, I’m just glad it was worth their drive because they bring such a potent car for me to drive. We picked that good number- I didn’t want to let them down.”

Sheppard spoke to pulling out away from Friesen early, only to get bunched back up with yellow flags.

“This thing was just flawless tonight. It was fast on the restarts and just ran good all fifty laps. That’s where I felt the most comfortable (on the bottom). The few times we did get into lap traffic, it felt like I could move around, but that wasn’t really a chance I was going to take.”

For Rudolph, it was a solid second place run, his best so far on the STSS North Region schedule for 2016.

“I think we were about a second place car tonight,” said Rudolph. I don’t think I had anything for Matt tonight. Hats off to him and his team, they were the car to beat. Not sure we really had anything for Friesen either, not sure what happened to him late there.”

Sheffield, MA driver Andy Bachetti ran third for most of the event and came home with a solid effort behind Sheppard and Rudolph.

“What a great racetrack Tyler and the whole gang has done here,” complimented Bachetti. “If I didn’t live so far away I’d love to race here, but it was a lot of fun. (We had) a good starting position, great run there for Matt, but third is a great run for us.”

Danny Creeden and Van Pelt filled the top five finishing positions. Billy VanInwegen, Matt DeLorenzo, Brian Malcolm, Vic Coffey and Brady Fultz completed the top ten positions.
