SHEPPARD WINS STRAWBERRY DASH, GRABS 12TH PLACE FINISH

February 8, 2018

TAMPA, FL (February 7, 2018) - The Wednesday evening portion of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Winternationals at Eastbay Raceway Park proved to be a difficult night for Brandon Sheppard and Rocket1 Racing. 

The qualifying time that the Valvoline Suebert Calf Ranches Rocket Chassis XR1 #Rocket1 earned, lined up Brandon Sheppard deep in the sixth heat. Sheppard finished 4th, missing the A-main qualifying spot by one position. Having to run a B-Main, Sheppard again missed qualifying for the A-main by one position after a third place finish. In a rare instance of not qualifying for an A-main, Sheppard was able to fall back on winning the Strawberry Dash to gain the final starting spot of the A-main. 

Sheppard started dead last, 24th for the 35 lap A-main. Marred by just two cautions, the Rocket1 Racing team raced with great determination to finish 12th, advancing 12 spots.
