TAMPA, FL (February 7, 2018) - Brandon Sheppard and his Valvoline Seubert Calf Ranches Rocket Chassis XR1 #Rocket1 scored his fourth straight top 5 finish of Speedweeks on night two of the Eastbay Raceway Park Winternationals.
Sheppard was looking for his second win in a row but finished third. "On that final restart, I chose the bottom. I thought I could get enough grip off the corner and then shoot across to get to the top of the track. They [Davenport and Overton] had a way better restart than I did. I went out on a limb and chose the bottom. A first and a third to start the week is great. I need to get qualifying better. I haven't qualified very well since we have been down here. I think if we do that better, then we will start up front in these races."
