BREWERTON, N.Y. – Tuesday, October 13 – Super DIRTcar Series point leader Matt Sheppard will try to put the disappointment of a late fizzle in the Syracuse 200 behind him this weekend at Brewerton and Brockville Ontario Speedways.
Sheppard was looking the part of a potential Finale at the Fairgrounds winner until Stewart Friesen passed him for the lead on lap 174. Soon he was in the pits with electrical problems that relegated him to a 25th-place finish.
“It just started skipping and I had to go in,” Sheppard said. “It was the battery.”
With the 2015 Brewerton track championship already in hand as well as the Canandaigua title in the books, Sheppard will try to pad his Super DIRTcar Series lead over Brett Hearn, Billy Decker and Jimmy Phelps.
Sheppard leads Hearn by 84 points and Decker by 93. Phelps is another 35 points further back.
Racing action begins at Brewerton Friday at 7 pm. Rain checks and pit wrist bands from September 19 will be honored. The program includes Sportsman and Mod Lites.
Brockville’s 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Fall Nationals Big-Block Modified event this Saturday, October 17 begins at 4 pm.
