BARBERVILLE, FL (February 12, 2018) - Brandon Sheppard and Rocket1 Racing completed the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series portion of FL/GA Speedweeks on Sunday night and has now set his sights on the DIRTcar/World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series portion at Volusia Speedway Park.
Sheppard qualified third in the third group with a time of 16.478. In the third heat, Brandon settled into third place behind leader Shane Clanton and 2nd place Scott Bloomquist. His third place finish lined him up 11th in the A-main. In the closing laps, Sheppard had a solid top ten finish for the #Rocket1 team. However, a leaking tire altered the handling of his car, dropping him from the top ten to a 13th place finish.
