VERNON, N.Y. – July 3, 2016 – Fireworks capped off the night at Utica-Rome Speedway but the fireworks actually started early when the fierce battle between Matt Sheppard and Danny Johnson started on lap 30 of the main event.
“It just kind of seemed slow and steady. The car felt good at the drop of the green but not fantastic. We kind of road for quite a while,” said Matt Sheppard in victory lane. “It seemed the longer the race went the slicker the track got, the better the car got. The car was really good tonight. I can’t thank everybody enough.”
Johnson was joined by Rob Bellinger on the front row for the start of the race. Third starter, Pat Ward, shot out of turn two off of the bottom to wrangle the lead away from Johnson.
