Chad Brachmann Nearly Steals Repeat Ohsweken Victory in Rain Delayed Feature

OHSWEKEN, ON, CAN – August 24, 2017 – The first 49 laps of the Triple Crown Showdown were a side-by-side battle between polesitter Larry Wight and front row starter Chad Brachmann, but the final 25 laps were all Matt Sheppard on Thursday night at Ohsweken Speedway. The reigning Super DIRTcar Series champion took the lead from Brachmann on lap 50 following a restart and couldn’t be stopped on the way to his fifth straight Series victory. Brachmann finished second after winning the Series’ inaugural event at Ohsweken in 2015. 

The race provided an interesting set of circumstances for the field of 25 drivers in attendance. A late evening rain and mist after all heat race competition had been completed led to a 45-minute rain delay. The track crew kept the racing surface in order and the Big-Block veterans of the Super DIRTcar Series produced a thrilling show when the green flag waved just after 11:00pm before Sheppard drove from 12th to earn the win.
