Sheppard Wins Fifth DTWC, O’Neal Scores First Career Lucas Oil Title

ROSSBURG, Ohio — Brandon Sheppard won his record-tying fifth General Tire Dirt Track World Championship – Presented by ARP on Sunday night at Eldora Speedway. Sheppard, who had just enough fuel to coast across the finish line, barely edged out Hudson O’Neal for the win in a race that saw a record eight lead changes. O’Neal and Moran were able to close on the final lap, but Sheppard was able to eke out the win. Sheppard, who led the final 40 laps for his 31st career win with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series was relieved to make it to the finish line. O’Neal came up just short of his first Dirt Track World Championship victory, but secured his first Lucas Oil title. Moran, earning his best career finish in the Dirt Track World Championship and in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series championship points, went back and forth with O’Neal in the final laps.
