Sheppard Steals The Show At Fayetteville May 6, 2017

Sheppard Steals The Show At Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, NC— May 6, 2017— Brandon Sheppard led all 50-laps during the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series 10th race of the 2017 season at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Sheppard’s win at the 3/8-mile track marked his ninth career win.

“We’ve been working really hard on this Rocket Chassis,” said Sheppard. “I want to thank Mark and Steve and everyone at Rocket Chassis for letting me drive this thing. It’s awesome. We’ve been working really hard lately to get ready for these Carolina tracks and Tennessee tracks because I’ve always struggled a little bit at those places so it definitely feels good to be getting a win and a top-three [last night].”

Tyler Erb started the feature on the outside of the pole and was heavy on the pedal trying to run down pole-sitter Sheppard throughout all 50-laps. The feature saw six cautions due to tire troubles. During every restart Sheppard was able to create an impressive lead over Erb and the rest of the field. In one lap Sheppard was able to gain up to a 1.643 second lead proving how much of a power house he truly is.

Erb was able to reel Sheppard in a few times giving the crowd a glimmer of hope that he could pull off his first ever World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series win come the checker flag. Erb may have not pulled off the win tonight but it is just a matter of time.

The young driver from New Waverly, TX is one of the most consistent drivers in the Series this season. He is currently second in the Series points standings and the only driver in the top-four of points who has not had a Series win this season.

“I sure hope [to land first win soon],” said Tyler Erb. “I’ve been putting in a lot of work lately. I can’t thank everyone enough who supports us.”

Series-Veteran Rick Eckert also found his way to the podium for the first time since his win at the 2017 season opener at Screven Motorsports Complex.

Some drivers were not so lucky come the checker flag at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Frank Heckenast Jr. had a tough break on the last lap of the feature as he got a flat tire on the backstretch making him slow from his top-10 position.

Timothy Culp Takes Top Cash at Ark-La-Tex Speedway May 6, 2017

Timothy Culp Takes Top Cash at Ark-La-Tex Speedway

Vivian, Louisiana (05/06/17) – Louisiana-native, Timothy Culp became the fourth different winner of 2017 on the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil tour on Saturday night. The pilot of the #c8 Rocket Chassis scored the $2,500 victory at Ark-La-Tex Speedway.

Gene Boyter’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway played host to the tour on Saturday evening, and a last-to-first charge in his heat race presented Culp with the New Vision Graphics Pole Position for the 40-lap finale. He was joined on the front row by fellow Louisiana native, B.J. Robinson.

Culp paced the field for the first circuit, but it was Robinson who jumped to the top spot on lap 2.

Lap 10 found Culp edging ahead of Robinson to retake the lead, and one circuit later Gavin Landers spun to draw the caution.

On the ensuing restart Robinson jumped the cushion in turn 2. He would be able to recover from this mistake, but not before he lost a handful of spots.

Culp went on to survive a mishap with a lapped car just before the halfway point on his way to his first CCSDS victory of the season. He was followed across the finish line by 8th-starting Billy Moyer Jr., while Chandler Petty, Jack Sullivan, and Garrett Alberson completed the Top 5.

Billy Moyer Jr. received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from his 8th starting spot to a runner-up finish, while Robert Baker received the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after engine issues early in the evening forced him to scratch from the program.

Decker Scores Third-Straight Highbank Hold-Up Win April 29, 2017

Decker Scores Third-Straight Highbank Hold-Up Win

FULTON, NY – April 29, 2017 – Billy Decker raced from the sixth-starting position to take the lead from outside polesitter Brett Hearn on lap 46 and held off a surging Matt Sheppard to claim his third straight Highbank Holdup 100 victory with the Super DIRTcar Series at Fulton Speedway on Saturday night.

After taking the lead, Decker battled through lapped traffic to build a lead over Hearn. He then had to contend with Sheppard, who rallied from the 11th starting spot to take the runner-up position on lap 56. Decker defended against the reigning champion’s efforts, particularly over the final 10 laps, to secure his first Series win since last year’s edition of the event on April 30, 2016.

“It was tough sledding,” Decker said of the battles throughout the race. “I think if you were rolling you could go pretty good. Matt (Sheppard) came a long way and there was a lot of dicing. I could really carry some speed through the center of the turn and I think that’s what did it.”

Before Decker paced the field, Billy Whittaker and Hearn brought the 30-car field to the green flag for the Series’ season opening points race. Whittaker paced the field over the first four laps until Hearn assumed the point on lap five.

Decker quickly made his presence felt though, as he immediately jumped into the top-five and by lap 12 was challenging Jimmy Phelps for second. At lap 30, Hearn, Phelps and Decker raced nose-to-tail in a thrilling three-car battle for the lead.

Meanwhile, Sheppard methodically paced his way forward and took third from Phelps before the halfway point and set out to track down the leader Decker and second-place runner Hearn.

The only caution of the race came on lap 62, after Sheppard had taken over the second spot, when Tim Sears Jr. spun his No.83 at the bottom of turn two. Sheppard wasn’t able to use the outside lane on the restart to get by Decker, but Phelps rallied to retake the third spot and relegated Hearn to fourth.

From there, Decker enjoyed a five car-length lead under the watchful eye of Sheppard until 20 laps to go when Decker wandered back into lapped traffic Inside the final 10 laps, Decker nearly gifted the win to Sheppard when he slipped up the track in turn three, but regrouped without losing the top spot.

“The last 20 laps I got a little bit tight,” Decker said. “I went to put a move on the 22-car (of Brandon Walters) in lapped traffic and Matt got underneath us. I learned my lesson pretty quick there.”

Sheppard made a final push over the last five laps after the top two had separated from third-place Phelps by a half lap. Sheppard couldn’t muster enough momentum to steal the victory.

“He was a little better at times and I think I was a little better at times,” Sheppard said of Decker. “We didn’t draw the best redraw number tonight, but we had a really good racecar. It’s a great night for us and a great start to the series. It was a fun race and the track was really nice tonight.”

Sheppard nearly capitalized on a $100 bonus as the eleventh starter courtesy of 811 Dig Safely New York. Eighth starting Bobby Varin was the other driver eligible for the award.

Phelps rounded-out the podium while Hearn and Larry Wight completed the top-five.

“We missed it a little bit, but this was our first race of the year,” Phelps said. “We did a bunch of testing, but we haven’t gotten to apply it. We were close. We took off pretty decent, but we just needed to be better about 30 laps in after everybody’s tires cycled in. To be able to start the season off on the right foot close to home in front of the best fans on dirt is good.”

Decker nearly started the season with a perfect night. He earned the Pole Position Raceway Fast Time award with a lap of 16.485 seconds around the 3/8-mile oval. Hearn bested Decker by one spot to win heat one. Whittaker, Wight and Pat Ward were the other heat winners.

Alan Johnson earned the KSE Hard Charger award after racing from 21st to 8th. Johnson won the first Last Chance Qualifier while Chad Phelps won the other. Garry Tomkins, the first driver to exit the race on lap 22, was the recipient of the Speedy First Aid Hard Luck award.

Michael Chilton would take the race lead at the drop of the green flag, with Mike Marlar, Chris Madden, Jimmy Owens, and Shanon Buckingham giving chase. Chilton would open up a bit of a lead until he began to work slower traffic on lap 9 and Marlar would close in on Chilton. The pair would battle side-by-side for the lead on lap 14 with Marlar dealing Chilton a slide-job for the lead in turn two on lap 15, however Chilton would return the favor in turn four barely have the lead at the line. Marlar’s second attempt for the lead would be successful as he would take the top spot from Chilton on lap 16 with a turn four pass.

As the field saw the halfway signal, Marlar would begin to drive away from the pack somewhat, while Chris Madden would begin to battle with Michael Chilton for the runner-up position. As Marlar continued to pull away, Chilton and Madden would wage war for the second position, with Madden finally winning the battle on lap 37. As Madden would try to reel in Marlar, Jimmy Owens would close in on Chilton for third and that pair would battle in traffic over the finally few laps, while Dale McDowell would creep up on both drivers and pass them for third in final couple of laps. Marlar would claim the victory in the caution-free event, with Madden finishing in second, and McDowell scoring the third position. Owens and Chilton would complete the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be Donald McIntosh, Shanon Buckingham, Eric Wells, Kyle Hardy, and Brandon Sheppard.
