O’Neal Holds Off Sheppard In Illinois

LINCOLN, Ill. — Hudson O’Neal outran Brandon Sheppard in a one-lap dash to the checkered flag to win Thursday night’s Castrol FloRacing Night in America late model feature at Lincoln Speedway. “I didn’t know if I was going to get it (slowed) up,” O’Neal said. Sheppard, who finished .879 seconds behind, nearly erased O’Neal’s 2.6-second lead in the closing laps rallying around the top of the quarter-mile oval. My guys … they work hard to give me a great race car to be able to move around all over the race track and get by lapped cars. Sheppard didn’t make the bulk of his moves until after the race’s first caution for Garrett Smith on lap 21. While roughly 2.5 seconds separated O’Neal and Sheppard, no slower cars stood between them. “I was giving it all she had for sure,” Sheppard said.
