Brandon Sheppard Shocks the Field and Wins the Dirt Track World Championship

PORTSMOUTH, OH (October 19, 2013) - Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, IL captured the biggest race of his young career winning the 33rd Annual RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday Night.  Sheppard at age 20 became the youngest driver in the history of the DTWC to win the crown jewel event. Sheppard earned $50,000 as he became the 24th different driver to win the DTWC and captured his first career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory.

Sheppard piloting the #1 Mark Richards Racing, Rocket House Car charged through the field from his seventh starting position using the very top groove to pass Scott Bloomquist for the lead on lap 43. Sheppard would motor away from the field after each restart through the middle stages of the race fending off challenges from several seasoned veterans en route to his victory in front of a capacity crowd. Steve Francis of Ashland, KY advanced from his 15th starting position to finish second at the checkers and clinching second place in the final LOLMDS Championship Points Standings. Jackie Boggs of Grayson, KY took home third followed by 14th starting Jason Feger of Bloomington, IL. Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN rounded out the top five.  With his fifth place finish Owens was crowned the 2013 Lucas Oil late Model Dirt Series National Champion for the third year in a row.

Sheppard, who was subbing for Josh Richards in the Rocket Chassis House car this weekend, was stunned with his accomplishment in victory lane.  "It hasn't sunk in yet," said Sheppard in victory lane.  "To come here in this car and win this race is just unbelievable, we had a great weekend, we set fast time last night, and almost won our heat race, but to come from seventh tonight and win was just unbelievable. And to beat the caliber of drivers in this field and the history of this event is just awesome. We've really had such a good year with our own Rocket car as well and I have to thank my dad and grandpa for all of their help this season.  I also want to thank all the sponsors on the number one car, Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Ernie D's, Ace Metal Works, Sunoco Race Fuel and Roush-Yates Engines', stated Sheppard.

Francis driving the #15 Clint Bowyer Racing, Georgia Boot entry grabbed the second spot on lap 79 from Boggs.  But over the final 21 laps of the race Francis could not catch Sheppard.  "Congrats to those guys on the win, Brandon and Mark they did a great job all weekend.  I thought maybe I had enough to chase him down at the end, but we finished the year strong and got second in the Lucas Oil points. We had a good battle all season with Jimmy (Owens) and congrats to him and his team on their championship. We'll be back next year with Clint Bowyer Racing and Georgia Boot to try and win this championship again", stated Francis.

Jackie Boggs, whose hall of fame father was the late Jack Boggs, won the DTWC three times in his career. Jackie was in the hunt for his first DTWC win over the last half of the race, but came up just short in finishing a solid third place.  "The nose of our car was digging in the track at times and I couldn't get off the corners like I wanted to. But we had a real good set-up for the feature and was hoping all the laps I've ran here would pay off with a win. To run third with these guys is still great", stated Boggs, driver of the #4B with sponsorship from Quick Response Environmental and Industrial Services and Swartz Race Cars.

Completing the top ten were Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN; Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR; Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, IL; Eric Wells of Hazard, KY, and Steve Shaver of Vienna, WV.

In preliminary action, Brandon Sheppard set the overall time (Group A) amongst the ­79 entrants, with a lap of 14.575 seconds. Jackie Boggs set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.755 seconds. Earl Pearson, Jr., Steve Shaver, Eric Wells, Jackie Boggs, Scott Bloomquist and Billy Moyer won their respective heat races.

The RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship Filled with History

WAYCROSS, GA (October 9, 2013) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season finale will take place on October 17th, 18th and 19th with the running of the 33rd Annual RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship - Presented by Borrowed Blue. This event, held at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, OH is promoted by hall of fame promoter Carl Short. The Dirt Track World Championship event has been Carl’s signature event over the years that are filled with great history, thrilling racing action, hall of fame winners and numerous facilities hosting the event in the past 32 years.

Carl Short promoted the first DTWC in 1981 with the event held at the legendary Pennsboro Speedway in Pennsboro, WV. The first event paid an unheard of $30,000 to win at that time and was won in dramatic fashion by the late Jim Dunn from Roseville, OH. Dunn started in the 23rd position on that day and charged through the field and passed Rodney Combs for the lead, with 12 laps to go, and went on to collect his biggest pay check and biggest win of his career that day.

The DTWC event would become a yearly tradition and has become one of the premier crown jewel events for dirt late model racing. Unfortunately Jim Dunn’s career was cut short in 1983 while competing at a NDRA sanctioned event in Paducah, KY. Dunn was involved in a multi-car accident during the feature event that took his life.  In honor of Jim Dunn and his legacy of being the very first winner of the DTWC, Carl Short added the Jim Dunn non-qualifiers race to the DTWC event schedule as a tribute to the late Jim Dunn and his family.

Through the years, Carl Short has continued to grow the Dirt Track World Championship into one of the biggest weekends of racing for fans and racers alike. The event that now pays a whopping $50,000 to win is one of the most coveted trophies any racer could want in their trophy case. Carl has promoted the event at seven different facilities over the 33 years of the events existence. Pennsboro Speedway (Pennsboro, WV) was the home of the DTWC event from 1981 through 1997 and in 2001. The DTWC was held at Thunder Ridge Raceway (Prestonsburg, KY) in 1998 then moving to Mineral Wells Motor Speedway (Parkersburg, WV) in 1999, 2000, and 2010. The Bluegrass Speedway (Bardstown, KY) hosted the event in 2002, 2003 and 2004 before moving to KC-Raceway (Chillicothe, OH) in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011. Portsmouth Raceway Park (Portsmouth, OH) hosted their first DTWC in 2012 and will once again this year for the 33rd Annual RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship - Presented by Borrowed Blue.

In the previous 32 DTWC events, there have been 23 different drivers to visit victory lane and capture this crown jewel event. Dating back to the inaugural running in 1981, there are five drivers that have won the prestigious event more than once. Hall of Famer Freddy Smith of Seymour, TN leads the way with five wins, followed by the late Jack Boggs of Grayson, KY, who won the race three times.  Two time winners of the DTWC include Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR; Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN and Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, IL. Some of the sport’s biggest names have won the DTWC at least once over the 32 years of the event including names like: Larry Moore (’87); Donnie Moran (’88); Steve Francis (’99); Darrell Lanigan (’03); Rick Eckert (’04); Chub Frank (’07);  Brian Birkhofer (’08);  Jimmy Mars (’09); Earl Pearson Jr. (’10); Don O’Neal (’11) and 2012 DTWC winner, Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN. Owens will be trying to become the first driver to win this crown jewel event in back to back years.

Carl Short has partnered with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series the past three years to bring the DTWC and the series together for their season finale. Carl still gets excited to promote this crown jewel event that includes a big open wheel modified show as a support class to the super dirt late models. “I’ve been promoting this event for 32 years now. It still takes a lot of hard work, a lot of traveling to other tracks and a lot of preparation to put on an event of this magnitude”, stated Carl Short. “But it’s still exciting and fun to do this and witness so many great drivers come together and compete at our event. I’ve been lucky to witness some of the best drivers in our sport participate in and win this event. I still enjoy traveling and seeing so many great fans all over the country, as I visit different tracks around the country promoting the DTWC every year”, stated Carl Short.

The 33rd Annual RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship - Presented by Borrowed Blue will once again be filmed by the Lucas Oil Production Studios. The event will air on FOX Sports 1 and on the MAVTV American Real Networks in 2013. “We really feel partnering with the Lucas Oil Series has helped to grow the event even more with the TV coverage they bring to this event. I’m looking forward to this year’s event and enjoy working with the great staff at Portsmouth Raceway Park”, stated Carl Short, promoter of the DTWC.

Activities for the 33rd Annual RED BUCK Dirt Track World Championship will get underway on Thursday, October 17th with Modified Qualifying, Heat Races and Consolation races.  On Friday, October 18th the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will take to the track for Hot-Laps, RED BUCK Time Trials and Heat Races.
