Sheppard Bounces Back In Louisiana

— After two weeks of what he described as a nightmare, Matt Sheppard returned to dominance on Thursday night, leading 32 of the 35 laps at the Ark-La-Tex Speedway on night three of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Cajun Swing for his 31st career Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series victory. By lap 15, Godown had entered the top five and then passed Davis for fourth in a chaotic battle through lapped traffic. The first caution didn’t come until lap 18 and, on the restart, Sheppard, from the outside lane, led Schilling, Creeden, Godown, Davis and Andy Bachetti to the green. On lap 19, just before the second yellow of the race, Bachetti ripped around the outside of Creeden for fourth. So, on the restart on lap 22, Bachetti and Godown, the two winners from Wednesday night, lined up in the second row behind Sheppard and Schilling. Godown, who won the first feature on Wednesday and came just two laps from sweeping the night, finished on the podium again, in third.
