Sheppard Comes Back From 22nd To Win ‘Richie Evans 61’

VERNON, NY – For the sixth time during the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco season, Matt Sheppard was triumphant — this time at Utica-Rome Speedway. Williamson raced out to the front of the field while Tim Fuller quickly occupied the runner-up spot after getting by Haas on the initial start. Stewart Friesen was looking to join Fuller up front, as he raced by Williamson one lap later for the runner-up spot. The race’s first yellow flew on lap 13, as Erick Rudolph slowed to a stop at the entry of the third turn. With Friesen setting the pace at the front of the field, Sheppard was continuing his charge through the field. Sheppard then cleared Fuller for the runner-up spot as the field completed lap 37. The race’s next yellow fell on lap 41, giving Sheppard the opportunity he needed to take the lead away from Friesen. When he got by us on that restart, it was game over after that,” Friesen said. Williamson came home fourth in his Behrent’s Performance Warehouse No.
