AKWESASNE, NY – September 16, 2018 – In a seesaw battle at the front, Tim Fuller proved his dominance at Mohawk International Speedway for the tenth time in 2018. The win is his first with the Super DIRTcar Series in 2018 and a record-extending tenth at MIR. Fuller becomes the second driver in history to sweep the 358 Modified and Big-Block Modified portions of the Mohawk Nationals.

Championship Points Leader Matt Sheppard Wins 100-lap Feature at Brewerton Speedway

BREWERTON, NY - September 14, 2018 – A driver’s fate in dirt racing is often decided by a thin membrane of rubber, a drop of racing fuel, or even one final lap. As fate would have it, Matt Sheppard made the winning moving on the very last lap over Pat Ward, who had galloped away from the field most of the night at Brewerton Speedway. Sheppard motored his no. 9s Big-Block Modified into turn 3, beneath the lapped traffic, and swept passed Ward, who had been held up by the traffic. The amazed crowd watched as Sheppard, who started from position 9, slowly but surely worked his way up to the top 3. Pat Ward, while disappointed not to come home with the win, finished second after leading the most laps. In third place was young gun Tim Sears Jr, who battled wheel-to-wheel with some of the best in Big-Block Modified racing to stand on the podium.

The Hard-Charging Jimmy Phelps Brings HBR Motorsports to Victory Lane in Quebec
Saint-Marcel-de-Richelieu, QUE – September 8, 2018 – HBR Motorsports veteran driver Jimmy Phelps stole his second win of the season with a late-race pass on defending Champion Matt Sheppard at Le RPM Speedway. After starting eleventh, Phelps picked his way to the front with precision moves and calculated risks. It seemed as though Sheppard would hold him off, but on a restart, Phelps went low and came out ahead of the no. 9s going down the backstretch. For the remaining laps, Phelps made his Modified very wide to prevent the counter attack. Fellow sixth row starter Danny Johnson also had a strong charge to the front and finished in second place. Defending Series Championship Matt Sheppard lead the most laps, but he could not match Phelps’ determination in getting to the front.
