Matt Sheppard Three-Peats: Crowned Super DIRTcar Series Champion Third Year in a Row
Young Driver, Just 30, of Waterloo, N. Y., First Ever to Win Three Consecutive Series Titles
CONCORD, N. C. – Nov. 5, 2012 – Two-time consecutive Super DIRTcar Series Champion Matt Sheppard made it to the top again this year, becoming the first Big-Block Modified driver to score three series championship titles in a row.
“It put my name in the record books for a little while. It means a lot to me,” said the 30-year-old Sheppard of Waterloo, N. Y. “The first one was great, you always remember that; the second one was remarkable, it was just as good as the first one; but to win the third in a row, just the face that nobody’s ever done it before, that’s something really special.” (Photo by Mike Petrucci)
