Sheppard Keeps Rolling In Delaware

— Matt Sheppard continued his otherworldly campaign, topping the Melon 1 Blast at the Beach presented by Sussex Diesel at Georgetown Speedway with the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By Sunoco on Wednesday night. Friesen led the opening two laps before Gular, using the outside groove, raced around Friesen and into the top spot. One lap later, Sheppard used a slide job to pick Friesen off for the runner-up position and set his sights on Gular out front. While Sheppard was trying to run down Gular, a three-car battle was heating up for fourth. A yellow one lap later forced a restart that allowed Friesen to get by Gular as well to nab the runner-up spot. Friesen pulled up to Sheppard’s back bumper on numerous occasions before a yellow came on lap 29 that would set the stage for a dramatic final six laps. One lap later, Friesen, running second, and Ryan Godown, running fifth, both pulled up lame.
