BARBERVILLE, FL (February 12, 2018) - The World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series opener at Volusia Speedway Park last night was halted by fog on lap 26. This marks the 2nd year in a row that Mother Nature didn't allow for the field to get in all 50 laps of the A-main exactly one year ago.
Sheppard started out the night with a 4th place finish in the 1st heat race. One spot shy of the transfer spot into the A-main. In the first B-main of the night Sheppard started up front and finished there. He won in the B-main was by nearly 5+ seconds. Brandon's B-main win started him 19th in the Craftsman Club Feature race. At the drop of the green flag, the Valvoline Seubert Calf Ranches Rocket Chassis XR1 #Rocket1 immediately began to advance through the field. At the mid-point of the race, Brandon had reached 12th place. Fog had set in and it was no longer safe to race. After an Outlaws race reached halfway, it's considered official. 12th place finish for Sheppard and Rocket1 Racing.
