Sheppard Eyes Fourth Super DIRTcar Series Crown at Bad Boy Buggies World Finals

Leads defending champion Decker heading to The Dirt Track at Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. – Nov. 3, 2015 – Matt Sheppard of Waterloo, N.Y., has the fourth Super DIRTcar Series championship of his career in his sights as the Big-Block Modified Series heads to The Dirt Track at Charlotte this week for Bad Boy Buggies World Finals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Sheppard has driven the FX Caprara/Mohawk Northeast Inc. No. 9h for HBR Racing to four wins and 21 top-10s in 22 starts on the Super DIRTcar Series circuit this season. He leads defending 2014 Super DIRTcar champion Billy Decker of Unadilla, N.Y. by 86 points (3,027-2,941). He accomplished a three-peat championship run in 2012.

Two 40-lap, $8,000-to-win events on Friday and Saturday are all that remain for Decker to deny Sheppard and earn a fourth Super DIRTcar crown for himself.

Sheppard’s HBR Racing teammate Jimmy Phelps of Baldwinsville, N.Y., is also still mathematically in the title chase with 2,860 points. Feature wins both Friday and Saturday are worth 150 points.

Decker has one more win than Sheppard, but two key comeback efforts have been instrumental in Sheppard’s hold on the top spot in the standings.

At Autodrome Granby in August, Sheppard pitted early for adjustments, came back out in 26th and finished fifth. He flipped violently at Brockville Ontario Speedway in October, started at the rear of the field in a back-up car, and raced his way to a fifth-place finish.

Qualifying for Friday and Saturday’s 40-lap Big-Block Modified main events begins Thursday evening.

Sheppard leads Super DIRTcar Series to Granby

Big-Block Modified event #18 pays $6,000-to-win

GRANBY, QC – September 9, 2015 – Super DIRTcar Series (SDS) point leader Matt Sheppard will attempt to increase his Autodrome Granby career-win win total to five at the Quebec half-mile Friday, September 11, as well as end Stewart Friesen’s current three-race winning streak.

Sheppard struggled uncharacteristically at Rolling Wheels Raceway September 3, but he rallied late in the event to place eighth for his 16th top-10 in 17 starts.

Friesen led the final 88 laps at Rolling Wheels for his third consecutive win which has propelled him into seventh-place in the championship point standings.

Sheppard’s closest rival, Brett Hearn, trails him by 95 points. The “Jersey Jet” has six career Super DIRTcar wins at Granby.

Danny Johnson, last year’s SDS winner at Granby, will try to regain momentum in the Finger Lakes Livestock Exchange No. 27j. Johnson has only one top-10 finish in his last six starts and has slipped to eighth in the standings.

Following the Autodrome Granby 100, the next event on the Super DIRTcar Series schedule is at Brewerton Speedway September 19.

Friday’s race card includes a 50-lap DIRTcar NE Pro Stock Series event – the make-up of a June 11 rainout.

Big-Block Modified qualifying heats Friday begin at 7 p.m.
