Even by Matt Sheppard’s standards, last week was some kind of special week.
On Tuesday, Sheppard won the Short Track Super Series North Region race at Outlaw Speedway and $5,000. The next night, Sheppard won the Super DIRT Series 75-lapper at Can Am Speedway and $7,500. Then on Saturday, Sheppard won Twin 50s at Orange County Fair Speedway, each paying $5,000, plus an added $5,000 for the clean sweep.
That’s $27,500 – and it’s part of Sheppard’s newsmaking week: He did it all effortlessly.
Any one of these three paydays would make a race team’s season. Sheppard had three, thus making News, News, News.
