Matt Sheppard powers his No. 9 to victory at the 2011 Super DIRTcar Series race at Merrittville Speedway
Big-Block Battle for Points at Merrittville
Sheppard Leads Hearn by One Point in Super DIRTcar Series
THOROLD, Ontario – July 30, 2012 – With just a one-point margin between point leader Matt Sheppard and Brett Hearn in second place, the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series brawl for points continues with the thrilling 100-lap Bob St. Amand Sr. Memorial at Merrittville Speedway Monday, Aug. 6.
Sheppard, who won the series’ appearances at the same 3/8-mile banked clay track in 2009, 2010, and 2011, said his past experience will benefit his performance in round six, and perhaps help him build his lead.
“We’ve won the last three years in a row up there, so hopefully we can go up there and make it four in a row,” said Sheppard, defending Super DIRTcar Series Champion.
