BREWERTON, NY - September 14, 2018 – A driver’s fate in dirt racing is often decided by a thin membrane of rubber, a drop of racing fuel, or one final lap. Tonight, Matt Sheppard made the winning difference on the very last lap over Pat Ward, who galloped away from the field most of the night. Sheppard motored his no. 9s Big-Block Modified out of turn four and swept passed Ward, who had become mired in lapped traffic. The crowd was stunned as Sheppard, who started in position 9, slowly but surely worked his way up to the top 3. Pat Ward, while disappointed not to come home with the win, finished second after leading most of the laps. In third place was young gun Tim Sears Jr, who battled wheel-to-wheel with some of the best in Big-Block Modified racing to stand on the podium.

RANSOMVILLE, NY – August 7, 2018 – After starting on the outside pole, Stewart Friesen, five-time NAPA Super DIRT Week Champion, powered by Chad Brachmann racing into turn one on the opening lap. Friesen faced challenges from Matt Sheppard and Mat Williamson throughout the 100 circuits around the half-mile Niagara County facility, but was able to hold them off. A familiar “old school” Ransomville cushion formed at the top of the track, and Friesen made expert use of it. He leaned on it like an old friend, and it carried him to Summer Nationals victory for the sixth time. Mat Williamson, not content with second, nearly grabbed the lead out from under Friesen in the closing laps.
