Sheppard Scores At Spoon River

BANNER, Ill. — Racing to his second-career Castrol FloRacing Night in America victory, Brandon Sheppard earned $22,022 on Wednesday night at Spoon River Speedway in the opening round of the inaugural FloRacing Illinois Speedweek. Sheppard grabbed the lead from polesitter and race-long leader Ashton Winger on the 22nd lap, and led the rest of the 50-lap Castrol FloRacing Night in America feature at the three-eighths-mile oval. Bobby Pierce appeared to be Sheppard’s worthiest challenger, but he had a scrape with Winger on a lap-36 restart, then slipped over the narrow high groove eight laps later while running second to spin out of contention. So I don’t know if it was just the tires coming back to me or what it was, but it was just a great night, man. Another great night and our car has been really good lately.”After Pierce’s lap-44 spin, Marlar grabbed second from Scott on the restart but couldn’t keep up with Sheppard.
