Sheppard Rules Orange Co. Mod Run

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — Eight-time and defending Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard became the first driver of the season to score back-to-back feature wins when he crossed the finish line at Orange County Fair Speedway Thursday night. Perrego finally won the contest on lap 47, but still had his biggest challenge ahead of him in trying to run down Sheppard. Perrego finally received the break he was hoping for on lap 59 when the first caution of the 73-lap race was thrown. Perrego lined up side-by-side with Sheppard on the restart, hoping to read the track correctly to score what would have been his first Feature win of the season in front of his home crowd. But Sheppard proved to be too much for his competition to handle on this night, and crossed the finish line first, securing the top of the podium and his third feature victory of the season. McLaughlin held off a hard charging Stewart Friesen to secure another podium finish, crossing the finish line third. Stewart Friesen raced from 13th to finish fourth, with Wight taking fifth.
