KIRKWOOD, N.Y. – July 12, 2016 – Five different drivers captured the lead in the hard fought 66-lap main event at Five Mile Point Speedway, but it was the birthday boy Matt Sheppard who made a late race charge from his eighth starting position to secure his third Super DIRTcar Series victory of the season.
“I think we had a better car tonight than last week. This thing was just rolling tonight,” said Sheppard, the current points leader and defending champion.
Billy Decker and Larry Wight helped kick off the feature as they jumped ahead of the field and battled for an early lead.
