  5. "The Rocket Shepp" Wins His First Big Gator, Sweeps Outlaws Competition in The Sunshine State BARBERVILLE, FL – Feb. 16, 2019 – A Big Gator trophy and its family of four are heading back to Rocket Chassis in West Virginia as Brandon Sheppard pulled off the unthinkable on Saturday night, winning the 2019 DIRTcar Nationals Late Model championship by completing the four-race sweep of all World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series events at Volusia Speedway Park. With these victories, Sheppard now holds a DIRTcar Nationals Late Model record as the only driver to win four races in a row in the event’s history. He’s also the first to win four World of Outlaws races in a row since Tim Fuller accomplished the feat in 2009. Last year’s DIRTcar Nationals Champion, Chris Madden, wrapped up his week with a runner-up finish, bouncing back from what he said should have been another top-five run on Friday night. His teammate, two-time DIRTcar Nationals champ Shane Clanton, made it a two-three finish for Capital Race Cars. Over the past four races at Volusia, Sheppard led a total of 174 laps out of a possible 200 – all 50 on Wednesday, 39 on Thursday, 41 on Friday and 44 on Saturday. He has now won the last five World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series races at Volusia, going back to the final DIRTcar Nationals race of 2018, which he won on Feb. 17. The Mark Richards Racing team has quite a long list of accomplishments already, and Sheppard agreed that this whole week was an all-around team effort. “It’s another accomplishment that we’ve added to the list as a team,” said Sheppard, a third-generation racer from New Berlin, IL. “Our team is phenomenal, and they deserve every bit of the success that we have.” Speaking about his new DIRTcar Nationals record, Sheppard continued, “To be the first driver in history to do that, it means the world to me, especially. And I know it means the world to my guys because they work their tails off, and they expect nothing less than a win.” Just like the previous three nights, “The Rocket Shepp” grabbed the lead early and never once relinquished it. A big challenge came from Madden behind him, as he gave chase throughout the entire race, but was never able to make the move. It seemed as though the Rocket House Car was on rails the whole night, rarely upsetting the car even the slightest bit on both the high and low lines. Madden had a great race, as well, starting from the outside pole and leading the opening laps. Sheppard dove into turn one on lap seven and slid up to the top side, taking Madden’s line and the spot away. But “Smokey” got back on the horse and gave Sheppard all he could handle through the next 44 laps. His finishes of sixth on Thursday night and now second on Saturday were just the finishes he and the Skyline Motorsports team were looking for this week. It gives Madden and his crew a lot of confidence moving forward in accomplishing the goals they set out at the beginning of 2019. “Hats off to Marshall Green and Capital Race Cars,” Madden said. “We’ve had a phenomenal week ourselves to come down here and accomplish what we did and do what we’ve done was a pretty huge goal for us. I’m excited and very happy for everybody that’s supported Skyline Motorsports here. It’s just a great program, it’s going be great for us this year, and hopefully we’ll be able to get a bunch of wins.” Madden said he should have had another second-place finish on Friday night to back up Saturday’s result, but the damage to his spoiler from an incident late in the race laid those chances for a good finish to rest. However, Madden took pride in the way he raced with the rest of the field throughout the week. “We had a second-place car last night, for sure,” Madden said. “We were tit-for-tat last night for a while. I feel like the 44 and the 1 car were the best two cars here this week.” Clanton had a very consistent week with finishes of fifth, two ninths, an eighth and now a third to cap off his 2019 DIRTcar Nationals venture. He joins Darrell Lanigan as the only two drivers to score top-five finishes in each of the five completed nights of Late Model Week at Volusia. “Top-10s will bring top-fives, top-fives will bring wins,” Clanton said. “We need more wins, of course, to keep going. But we’re real satisfied with what we’ve done, to get a win at Screven and then to come here and get a top-five and no worse than ninth, it feels real good.” Starting fifth, “The Georgia Bulldog” made a steady push to third with a car that he said could have been better, but was still pleased to put into the top three. “I actually thought I had something for [the leaders],” said Clanton, the 2015 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series champion. “But with them long greens, we had a little softer tire than they did on the right front and it just got to where I couldn’t steer. It just got too tight. The cautions were helping a little bit, but once the racetrack cleaned up, they could go ahead and drive away from me.” With the conclusion of Saturday’s events, the 48th Annual DIRTcar Nationals is now officially in the books. A big thanks to all of the great race fans who came out to be a part of it!

  10. The 2017 Series Champion is Off to a Terrific Start in 2019, as He Eyes the Big Gator Trophy on Saturday BARBERVILLE, FL — Feb. 15, 2019 — Fast fact: the last four World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series races held at the Volusia Speedway Park as part of the DIRTcar Nationals have now been won by the same driver in the same car. “The Rocket Shepp” Brandon Sheppard put on yet another powerful display of motor and muscle on Friday night, as he led 41 of 50 laps en route to his third victory in three days. Sheppard won the fourth and final World of Outlaws race last year at Volusia, making this four in a row for the Rocket Chassis house car driver at “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile.” After winning Monday’s DIRTcar Late Model race and two sub-par nights of Outlaw competition Wednesday and Thursday, 2018 Series Champion Mike Marlar put together an incredible rebound race, advancing 21 spots through 50 laps to go from 23rd to second after barely making the race through a Last Chance Showdown. Two-time DIRTcar Summer Nationals Champion Brian Shirley bagged the final spot in the top three with a solid run, rebounding from his 3rd-to-14th-place finish on Thursday night. Sheppard began his night with a win in Heat No. 5 and drew the fourth spot on the starting grid. From the outside second row, he seemed to crack the whip at the exact same time as Thursday night, taking the lead away from Tim McCreadie on lap 10 and getting the jump on every restart, avoiding the destructive activity behind him to garner his 15th top-five finish in 17 overall starts this winter. Track conditions, as they always do, changed throughout the evening, which made for an interesting challenge for the drivers on which line to run and when. Both high and low lanes seemed to be effective, and Sheppard said his car was good enough to work with both. “I feel like I could have ran the same line most of the race and kept the same speed up, but there were guys coming behind me on the top and they were a little better than me at times, so I had to move up and compensate,” said Sheppard, of New Berlin, IL. “I just moved when I had to, and everything just worked out how it worked out – the racecar was really good.” Sheppard, a third-generation racer, grew up on Illinois bullrings, but he’s adapted his game to big houses, as well. “You can’t get good at these places unless you go and get beat and learn from your mistakes,” Sheppard said. “We’ve ran a lot of half-miles in the past few years and our half-mile program has been really, really good. I was definitely excited to come here, for sure. Of all the places that we come to in Florida, or speed weeks in general, I was definitely most excited about here.” Dominance on this half-mile is certainly not easy to come by, but the Mark Richards Racing team certainly has figured it out, winning 10 World of Outlaws Feature events at the facility since 2007. Richards and his crew of Danny White, Austin Hargrove and Joel Rogers have worked especially hard to put Sheppard into victory lane numerous times over the past two seasons. And Richards couldn’t be happier to do it at a place like Volusia. “This starts our year off, so it gives us some momentum to go on,” Richards said. “This place is probably one of my favorite places to race, so to come here and win, it means a lot to us.” Sheppard said on Thursday night that the pressure of winning in 2019 was actually relieved a bit because they fell short of winning the Series championship in 2018. Richards wants the best for his team, and it seems they’re coming back with vengeance in their eyes to begin the year with three-peat victories to kick things off. “It wasn’t because of on-track performance, it was because of some mechanical issues we had,” Richards said. “We had an incredible year, won the most races and all that. But we want to come back and redeem ourselves.” However, little did Sheppard know of Marlar’s charge behind him. Lap by lap, Marlar began to pick off traffic in front of him, climbing to the 16th spot before a bad wreck on the front stretch on lap 27 brought out an extended caution, sending several cars to pit road. On that restart, Marlar put the hammer down and picked up a few more spots, placing him inside the top 10, where he continued to make up ground on the leaders. By lap 40, he was battling Brian Shirley for second – a battle he won at the drop of the checkered. “It went great for me, there were a lot of things happening in that race,” said Marlar, of Winfield, TN. “I started, pretty much, at the rear and had a really good car. I missed some pretty big catastrophes and passed a lot of cars too, so it was a good night for us.” Shirley once again proved his worthiness of running up front again on Friday night with a hard-fought, third-place run. He started eighth and kept his nose clean through 50 laps, holding his own in the top three to stay out of the incidents that were occurring behind him. Steadily, Shirley made the most of his passes on the high side – a familiar place for him this week. “We got off to a pretty good start and was able to pick a few of those guys off,” said Shirley, of Chatham, IL. “Just stuck to my guns, as I was pretty good around the top. Luckily, everything went our way – got a couple spots on some restarts and it all worked out pretty good.” Shirley had some early momentum that proved to be the difference-maker in staying out of each of the five cautions, climbing to second on lap 19, well before the wrecks involving Devin Moran, Tyler Erb, Ricky Weiss, Kyle Bronson, Chris Madden, Gregg Satterlee and Jonathan Davenport led to a lot of mangled racecars in the pits after 50 laps, and Shirley was just glad to be ahead of it all. “Luckily, on the restarts, I was able to get out there and get to second,” Shirley said. “I was able to hold my own in there and not fall back on the restarts, which saved me from getting into that carnage.” Don’t miss the 12th and final night of the 2018 DIRTcar Nationals from Volusia, get your Late Model Fast Pass now to watch every lap live on DIRTVision!

  13. Another Mark in the Win Column for the Rocket Chassis House Car, Weiss Shows Signs of Strength BARBERVILLE, FL – Feb. 14, 2019 – The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series had a streak going of three different winners in three races after Wednesday night. Brandon Sheppard’s back-to-back win on Thursday night over Scott Bloomquist, Don O’Neal and Rookie of the Year contender Ricky Weiss changed all that, as he led 39 laps on his way to victory on Night 4 of Late Model Week at Volusia Speedway Park as part of the 48th Annual DIRTcar Nationals. Early on, the gloves were off in the battle for the lead between two former Series Champions, Tim McCreadie and Sheppard himself. McCreadie started outside front row and bolted out to the early lead. Sheppard gave chase for 10 laps before using the shortest line around the track to power by on the inside coming out of turn two. Once he grabbed the lead, Sheppard did everything he could to protect it, growing his lead in traffic to as high as 4.2 seconds at one point. “I kind of bided my time a little bit there at the beginning and was able to find out what line I needed to run,” Sheppard said. “When I was running third, I was kind of taking my time, trying to be patient a little bit and see where I could pass them guys clean.” Despite a number of cautions near the end of the race, Sheppard was able to handle the pressure from numerous drivers applying it from behind him. Seven different cars took a shot at the top three in the second half of the race, and the battle ensued quickly after Sheppard grabbed the lead from McCreadie. Don O’Neal, Chris Madden, Jonathan Davenport, Scott Bloomquist, Brian Shirley and Ricky Weiss were all fighting like dogs to break into the podium in various points over 50 laps, which most everyone was able to claim at least once in that timeframe. “T-Mac” defended the runner-up spot early before Madden, Shirley, Bloomquist and O’Neal came in hot pursuit. After a restart on lap 17 that bunched the field together, they raced lap-after-lap, inside and outside, swapping positions back-and-forth for about 15 laps before another caution broke the tension. After the restart, Davenport completed his vicious charge to the front with a pass for second but quickly lost it and began to fade, much like Shirley did around the same time. This left room for one of the best battles for the podium the fans had been treated to all week between Bloomquist, McCreadie, Madden and O’Neal. “Black Sunshine” stayed relatively out of the way, biding his time in sixth for much of the first 40 laps, but cranked things up with ten-to-go and passed three cars in three laps, leaving him with a solid runner-up finish. This gave Bloomquist his second top-five of the week, and another strong run from Team Zero, rebounding from his superb, yet unfortunate-ending run in Wednesday night’s Morton Buildings Feature (2nd to 22nd). McCreadie and Madden held their own battle for the fifth spot near the race’s end, with McCreadie in the position as they took the checkered. This gave Madden his fourth top-10 of the season, bringing him up to fifth in Series point standings. Don O’Neal had another terrific run aboard the Clint Bowyer Racing ride, fending off numerous challenges from McCreadie, Bloomquist and Madden just to protect his third spot. From lap 13 onward, “The Real Deal” was never worse than fourth, showcasing his integrity on the high-line, right where he was the night prior. However, O’Neal said his car may have had more in the tank for a better push for second. “I think I ran so hard on the top, at the beginning that I used my stuff up,” O”Neal said. “At the end, I couldn’t cut across the middle like Scott and Brandon could. I had to live on the cushion. I came home third – it’s not what we wanted but it’s what we’ll have to take.” Coming into the 2019 season, there was much speculation around the Late Model community, concerning who the “top rookies” of the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series were going to be. Ricky Weiss was a frequently mentioned name online, being a five-time WISSOTA Late Models champion, especially on social media. Thursday night’s race was the first to support his fans’ predictions of high-quality finishes throughout the season, as Weiss wrapped up the fourth spot, and it looks as though he’ll only be getting better from here. A few rough finishes at Volusia prior to Thursday night has given Weiss and the rest of his crew a big reason to work hard and get better in all areas. It takes a special team effort to rebound from a 24th-place finish, directly following with a top-five effort. With Scott Bloomquist and his team’s knowledge and equipment backing the Headingly, Manitoba, Canada, team this season, Weiss has proven he’s got what it takes to hang with the big guns on a national tour. “It’s been huge, just growing our relationship with Scott and I and our team,” Weiss said. “We’ve just been tweaking and building as a team, and it’s definitely showing.” Weiss and his team have had experience at Volusia in years past, but never this deep into a points commitment. They key for them will be to just stay out of trouble and focus on consistency, the wins will come soon. “We knew Florida would be a new deal to us,” Weiss said. “If we could get out of here unscathed with our equipment in one piece, I just think if we can contend, not only with the rookie deal but run up front almost every night, we can hopefully make a run for the championship. “Our team definitely proved that we’ve got the speed and we’ve got the skill, Weiss continued. “Now if we get a little bit of luck on our side, maybe we can start picking up some wins.” Late Model Week at the 48th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park continues tonight in round #3 of World of Outlaws competition.

  15. Hafertepe Grabs Pair Of Podium Finishes At Bubba Raceway Park by Bryan Hulbert OCALA, Fla. (February 14, 2019) Kicking off his 2019 season at Bubba Raceway Park this past weekend in USCS competition, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. collected a pair of podium finishes at the egg-shaped oval. Coming in Friday with a run from seventh to second in his Heat Race, Sam positioned the Hills Racing No. 15h on the pole of the A-Feature. Leading the first 11 rounds, a mid-race restart would allow eventual race winner, Davie Franek, his shot at the lead with Hafertepe slipping back to third in the closing laps. "We'd been going through lapped traffic and was able to pass on the top and the bottom. The top is where we'd led it from the start of the race, and I went there on the restart and the bottom had started to come in and take rubber. Just kind of gave it away really but that's part of it sometimes. I definitely felt like we had the fastest car so that was a plus and just took that steam into the next night," commented Hafertepe on the Friday performance. Betting his Saturday Heat Race performance to a win, Sam lined up fifth in the A-Feature with his run at race leader, Mark Smith, building strong in the closing laps, but just short, after falling back to nearly 10th at the start of the race. "They worked the track a little bit before the feature, and they just didn't run it in enough. I went in the first few laps and just slid through the slime so that put us back to about ninth or tenth, so I had to make a charge through the field. Just came up one spot short but had a good car and was able to run Mark down in the closing laps even with the bottom taking rubber again. It would have been tough to pass him, but we had one of the better cars all night." Using the Florida trip to test and tune, Hafertepe so far is very pleased with the way the car has progressed, especially with East Bay Raceway Park on the horizon. "From what we generally do at a lot of places, we basically did the opposite and we seemed to have good speed right out the box and the results reinforce that to run good two nights in a row with a chance to win both nights. That makes up happy going into East Bay and try to pick up the $10,000 on Saturday night." Already sitting pit side at the 43rd annual Winter Nationals and 18th annual Ronald Laney Memorial, action at East Bay Raceway Park takes place February 14-16, 2019.

  17. Sheppard shines as he rockets to DIRTcar Nationals victory at Volusia BARBERVILLE, FL – Feb. 13, 2019 – Brandon Sheppard was the third different winner in three races to start the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series season, and he dominated on Wednesday night at Volusia Speedway Park’s 48th Annual DIRTcar Nationals. Courtesy of World of Outlaws Late Model Series While “The Rocket Shepp” was in control, a wild race waged behind him. Don O’Neal had fallen as far as 16th before he hooked up and charged all the way to second while former DIRTcar Nationals champion Josh Richards hung tough all night in the top five and finished third. But a perfect setup in the Morton Buildings Feature was exactly what Sheppard needed to hold off Scott Bloomquist and Dale McDowell in the early going, and then be able to move through traffic on the expertly prepared racing surface. “I think our car was maneuverable enough that we could have passed cars if we needed to,” said Sheppard, of New Berlin, IL. “We passed a few lapped cars there. Like I said, our car was maneuverable. It was very balanced and fun to drive, and the track was fun to drive too. It was kind of a little bit different at both ends and you could move around on it, so it was fun.” Sheppard started his night off with a hammer-down qualifying effort, clocking in at 16.097 – good enough for fifth overall. He grabbed the early lead in Heat 2 and redrew the pole, never looking back once through multiple restarts toward the end of the race. For he and his crew, Sheppard was just glad to pick up a victory at Volusia, as he was feeling the pressure after going winless in his first 14 starts this year from Arizona to Georgia and Florida. “Sometimes, it takes a while to get the first win out of the way and get it off your back,” Sheppard said with a sigh of relief. “Everybody’s under a lot of pressure to get the first win. “I knew as long as we could keep up front and keep running good that the wins would come. Usually, we’ve got one by now, so the pressure was on. For me, it’s a big relief to finally get the first one out of the way… I almost thought I forgot how to do it for a minute.” After scoring 13 wins last season, the Mark Richards Racing, Rocket Chassis house car wound up second in the Series championship after a few unfortunate DNFs, creating a gap he was unable to make up in the end despite a victory in the World Finals at Charlotte. This year, Sheppard put all that behind him and has never been more focused on posting good, consistent finishes. And what start he’s gotten off to, taking the points lead after just three races. “Truthfully, there’s less pressure because we didn’t win the championship last year,” Sheppard said. “I think we’ve 100 percent, in my mind, got a championship team. At the end of the day, we’re going to go out and concentrate on getting wins.” O’Neal has certainly sprung to a great start at Volusia. After finishing fourth in Heat 1, placing him 13th on the starting grid, “The Real Deal” steadily picked off the traffic in front of him, lap-by-lap, earning him a runner-up finish. And what a charge he had, falling as far back as 16th on lap six. “I stayed on the bottom for probably 15-to-20 laps and then I restarted on the outside after a caution,” O’Neal said. “Then I pretty much just slid on the top after that, and that’s when we got to rolling good.” This second place sat well with the Clint Bowyer Racing pilot and will give him plenty to build off of going forward through the next three nights of action at Volusia. “It’s a big thing to build off of, having a good run like we did the more we started,” O’Neal said. “[We’re] just working a little bit on this package we’ve got right here to see if we can’t fine-tune it a little bit.” The field was full of big movers on the racy half-mile surface as Brian Shirley powered from 20th to eighth and Jonathan Davenport motored from 14th to fifth. While Richards earned his second top-five this week at Volusia, Chase Junghans motored to his third top-five finish in three World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series races this season. Junghans is the only driver who has three top-five finishes in the first three points races. He agreed this is something to build on throughout the weekend, saying “We’re just going to keep on working on this car, trying to fine-tune it and hopefully get a couple wins before we leave here.” The Series is back in action Thursday night as it looks for its fourth consecutive different winner to start the season after Brandon Overton, Shane Clanton and Sheppard have taken the first three checkered flags.

  18. Dave Cooke won 13 times in 1993 at Longhorn......we didn't cheat. Two times we stayed until 5am to prove it since the same guy protested us both times and he was a big time cheater...probably thought everyone was like him. Not everyone cheats despite popular belief.
  19. Carl Wentrcek

    Carl stopped by my shop today I had not seen him in awhile. We had a nice visit we sat in my garage by my dwarf car and he told me some stories about his Pan Am and Highway 16 days. He had just finished 5 months of chemo and needed to get out of the house. I do hope stops by again soon I love hearing the stories from back when.
  20. Has anyone ever actually been fully DQ'd? ..... Since I started becoming interested in the 70's I can't recall anyone getting anything but slap on wrist/fined a token amount/lost a few of points/crew chief suspended.....and lately "encumbered".....Yet no total disqualifications, and I'm talking the second place driver awarded the win type disqualification! ....So my answer would be, ALL of them in the HOF.
  21. Ok so here is the plan for our next race weekend! February 15th and 16th we will have an action packed weekend of racing! Friday will be the Mid Season Championship event, Saturday the 16th we will do a double header with afternoon race followed by night race! Going to be an amazing weekend of racing action! I will announce ticket prices soon, we will look at doing an all weekend pit pass, keep watching for more details!
  22. Reutzel Finishes Out Florida in Strong Form at DIRTcar Nationals by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (February 13, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team finished out their Florida in February events on a positive note with a solid performance at last week’s DIRTcar Nationals at Barberville’s Volusia Speedway Park. Reutzel finished out the week ranked seventh in both the final DIRTcar Nationals points as well as the early NOS Energy Drinks World of Outlaws Sprint Car points. After opening the week with runs of ninth and 12th in All Star Circuit of Champions competition on Wednesday and Thursday, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team finished out the week with showings of 11th and seventh in the opening World of Outlaws events of the year before Sunday night’s finale was rained out. “All in all, it wasn’t too bad for us,” Reutzel commented. “Our starting point wasn’t quite as good as needed it to be. But by the end of the last night, I felt like we were back to where we were last year. I really wish we could have got the Sunday night show in.” The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions kingpin began the week timing in 19th quick in Wednesday’s All Star card and then winning his heat race to land a Dash starting position. After starting the feature in tenth, Reutzel drove the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine to a ninth place finish. Thursday’s final All Star card of the Florida portion of the season netted Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team Hard Charger honors for the night after rallying from 24th to capture a 12thplace finish. “We had a hard time qualifying the first couple of nights or so, it made us work that much more to get good finishes,” Reutzel says. The qualifying woes continued as the World of Outlaws kicked off the season on Friday night, but Reutzel rallied from seventh to third in his heat race to salvage the 12th starting position for the feature event and then finished out the night in eleventh. Getting things dialed in what proved to be the final night of the DIRTcar Nationals, Reutzel timed in ninth-quick to lead the way to a seventh-place finish on the night. “We got to where we needed to be, now we’re looking forward to the Texas races next weekend,” Reutzel concluded. Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team will be back in action with the NOS Energy Drinks World of Outlaws Sprint Car series next weekend at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, TX, on Friday night, February 22, and then Kilgore’s Lonestar Speedway on Saturday, February 23. 2019 Quick Stats: 9 races, 4 top-tens.
