Sheppard Hopes To Put Rough Weekend Behind Him

Friday night at the Brewerton Speedway, Super Matt Sheppard opened his second
full weekend in his #9s, Jeff Brownell Sr. owned modified. Coming home 5th in the
main event was all he had for the full field of modifieds. His Saturday night stop the
Canandaigua Speedway was cancelled due to rain. Having the night off the team
was looking forward to their Sunday night stop at Cayuga County Fair Speedway
only to have a disapointing 13th place finish. The week ahead is a big one with
 a trip to the Virginia Motor Speedway along with a  second Advance Auto Parts
Dirtcar Series event  later in the week and  that is the main focus as the car heads
back to the shop.
