Matt Sheppard charges into Round 3 of the Super DIRTCAR Series with point lead

Cornwall Motor Speedway celebrates Canada Day with Super DIRTCAR Series 100-lapper

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – June 29, 2014 – The Super DIRT CAR Big Block Modified Series kicks off the upcoming holiday week with speed, invading Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ontario, for a special Canada Day weekend 100-lapper Sunday, June 29.

Current point leader and three-time Super DIRTcar Series champion Matt Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., is hoping to bring some momentum from his recent win at New Egypt Speedway Tuesday, June 17.

“Hopefully our car will be as good as it was at New Egypt and hopefully we can get good a run there,” said Sheppard, who last year finished second in Super DIRTcar Series points to veteran driver and eight-time series champion Brett Hearn. “It’s a little bullring there, real racy. It’s fun to race there when your car’s right.”

Sheppard’s 2014 run under the Heinke-Baldwin Racing banner has already seen success, including a pre-season victory in February during DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment and a top-five finish in the series points opener at Brockville Ontario Speedway. However, with strong contenders like Hearn, currently second in points standings, and Central New York star Billy Decker, now third, Sheppard knows he has his work cut out for him as the racing season starts to heat up.

“It’s early, it’s really early,” Sheppard said. “You’ve got to take it one race at a time, and so far, so good.”

Gates open at Cornwall Motor Speedway for the Round 3 of the Super DIRTCAR Series at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, June 29th. Racing is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. For more information about the Super DIRTcar Series, visit www.superdirtcarseries.com.
