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.
