LUCAS LATE MODEL SERIES

Davenport Collects First Series Win of the Year
 
LAKE CITY, FL (February 9, 2020)- Jonathan Davenport, the three-time and defending, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, closed out the 2020 Georgia-Florida Speedweeks with his first win of the season on Sunday Night at All-Tech Raceway.  Davenport collected his 48th career series win, at the first-ever Series race held at the Lake City, Florida facility. 
 
Moran jumped to the early lead ahead of Gregg Satterlee, who was making his first start with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series this year. Fourth place starter, Davenport, took the lead from early pacesetter, Devin Moran on lap 20. He sprinted away to win by over three seconds over runner-up finisher, Mike Marlar, in the Rocket Fuels/Rocket. Marlar started in eighth and recorded his best finish of the week.
 
Brandon Sheppard, a three-time winner at the East Bay Raceway Park Winternationals this week, moved from his 10th starting spot to clear Clanton with two laps to go to finish in third, after a hard-fought battle in the closing laps. Sheppard maintains the Midwest Sheet Metal Point Leader Spoiler Challenge, heading to the series' next events at Atomic Speedway in Ohio on March 20 and Brownstown Speedway in Indiana on March 21.
 
Jimmy Owens went to a backup car and took a series provisional to start 24th. Owens moved through the field to finish in fifth, earning Optima Batteries Hard Charger of the race honors.
 
Davenport, the reigning series champion, was relieved to get his first win of 2020. "You have no idea. My team has worked so hard and we have so much bad racing luck, it's been unbelievable. Thanks to Lance and Darla Landers, I know they are watching back home. Thanks to Steve Martin, from Nutrien Ag Solutions, for supporting us again this year. This was a brand-new car that we never got to test, and then we had to run it at East Bay. We needed this win."
 
Marlar was pleased his runner-up finish in the series' first appearance at All-Tech Raceway. "This track is so racy. We had a pretty rough week at East Bay, but this track fits me much better. I felt like we had a good run and there was plenty of good racing out there."
 
Sheppard, whose worst finish during the eight nights of racing was a tenth, replaced that finish with his third-place finish tonight. "We had a really good car, especially there early in the race. We passed some guys there on the top, but I could run the bottom well too. I should have picked the top on that last restart.  I chose the bottom on Devin because I thought the bottom would be better, but I had my momentum broke there. We had a good race between myself and Clanton, we were fortunate to get by him on the white flag lap. Thanks to all of my crew, we've had a great start to this month."
 
The winner's Lance Landers/Double L Motorsports, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions, Spartan Mowers, Lucas Oil Products, Penske Racing Shocks, VP Fuels, and ASC Warranty.
 
Completing the top ten were Devin Moran, Tim McCreadie, Josh Richards, Billy Moyer Jr., and Gregg Satterlee.

Sheppard Takes Finale at East Bay
 
TAMPA, FL (February 8, 2020)- Brandon Sheppard came from the 11th starting position to win Saturday Night's Wrisco Industries Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park. It was Sheppard's third win of the week in the annual Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event. He passed race leader Devin Moran with 12 laps to go, before driving on to victory.
 
Moran, in the Tye Twarog Longhorn finished second to Sheppard with Tyler Erb, Brian Shirley, and Shane Clanton completing the top five.
 
Pole sitter, Moran, took the lead at the drop of the green flag with Clanton hot on his heels. Moran and Clanton ran one-two for the first 12 laps of the race until Clanton passed Moran for the top spot on lap 13. Clanton held the point for six circuits until Moran was able to get back around the Georgia veteran.
 
Meanwhile, Sheppard was patiently working his way through the field and moved by Clanton for second on the 21st lap. Sheppard started working the top groove off turn two, closing the gap on Moran, but Moran kept his car glued to the bottom of the third mile oval. Moran continued to hold the top spot until Sheppard rapidly cut into Moran's lead as he rocketed by him on lap 38.
 
Sheppard expanded his lead in the final ten laps and went on to record his sixth career win at East Bay and his 18th in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Sheppard continued the trend of Saturday Night East Bay finale winners, as the 27-year-old Illinois native became the 12th different winner in the last 12 years.
 
"The track was tricky tonight and got really slow. It was totally unexpected, but it was typical East Bay, where it didn't give us the same thing twice this week. We had a different surface every night and that's what makes it so much fun to come here. It's a shame it's going to be gone before long. Man, it was a lot of fun out there. I can't thank my guys enough," said Sheppard, who will maintain the Series points lead, as he will carry the Midwest Sheet Metal Spoiler into All-Tech Raceway on Sunday Night.
 
Moran concluded a successful week at East Bay after scoring his first-ever win at "The Clay by the Bay" on Monday Night, with second-place finish in the finale. "I think this is deja-vu. Brandon's done this to me here before, just all part of it. I don't think anyone's seen the racetrack like this for the feature. I don't know what did it or why it did it, that little bit of traction strip made us stick down there (on the bottom). We aren't the biggest or brightest team, but we had a great Speedweeks, and hopefully we can cap it off tomorrow at All-Tech."
 
Erb won twice last year at East Bay, but is still winless in the Georgia-Florida Speedweeks. Tonight, Erb did recod a solid point finish as he rounded out the podium. "The track was a little bit crazy. You couldn't get the top going, so just congrats to Sheppard, Devin, and everybody. It's been a long week here and we got every race in. I really enjoy racing here although, it wasn't the final night we were all kind of hoping for, but it was a good night for us and we'll go on to All-Tech."
 
The winner's Mark Richards Racing Rocket 1 House Car is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Gunters Honey, Ace Metal Works, Integra, Sunoco, Keyser, and Rocket Pre-Owned Motors.
 
Completing the top ten were Rick Eckert, Tim McCreadie, Shanon Buckingham, Jonathan Davenport, and Billy Moyer Jr.

Zeigler Wins Thriller Over Bronson

 
 
TAMPA, FL (February 7, 2020)- Former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie-of-the-Year Mason Zeigler narrowly edged out Kyle Bronson at the finish line to win Friday Night's Wrisco Industries Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park. For Zeigler, it was his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win, with both coming at East Bay Raceway Park.
 
A caution with nine laps to go caused a frantic single-file restart. Zeigler made a charge to the lead as he and Bronson traded the lead twice in the final four laps to win by a scant .068 seconds.
 
Bronson finished second in the Brandon Ford Rocket with Brandon Sheppard taking third in the Valvoline Mark Richards Racing Rocket 1 House Car. Tyler Erb finished in fourth, followed by Jonathan Davenport who completed the top five.
 
Before a packed house, Sheppard was looking for his third win of the week, bolted to the lead with Tyler Erb and Jimmy Owens trailing. Sheppard held off Erb for the first eight laps of the race until the first caution came out. On the restart, Bronson gained the lead for the first time in the race as he passed Sheppard for the top spot. Sheppard fell to second, with Owens still holding the third spot.
 
On lap 17, Josh Richards, who was running fourth after starting 10th, slowed with drive line failure. On the restart, there would a long green flag run for 24 laps with Bronson holding the point. With ten laps to go the running order was Bronson, Sheppard, Erb, Jonathan Davenport and Zeigler.
 
A caution for a slowing Boom Briggs on lap 41 set up, what would be a classic, East Bay finish. On the restart with nine laps to go, Bronson would carry the lead, to within five laps of victory, but Zeigler was picking off cars one-by-one as he climbed to third and then eventually second with four laps remaining.
 
Zeigler and Bronson had an epic battle for the race lead with Bronson yielding the lead to Zeigler on lap 48, but Bronson came back to lead. On the final lap, Zeigler went back around Bronson and as they came to the checkers, Zeigler would edge Bronson by a nose for his first series win since winning at East Bay in 2016.
 
Zeigler, the 2018 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie-of-the-Year was ecstatic with the win before a cheering crowd in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "I knew Kyle (Bronson) was going to be tough because that cushion was still pretty good up there. The cautions really helped me because their tires were getting a little cool and I could just work that middle (groove). I knew if I could just get ahead of him, clear him, and take his nose getting into (turns) one and two, we could drive away. He gave me all I wanted. I didn't expect that slider. I didn't think he'd be able to pull up alongside me again, and he sure as heck did. We just had barely enough room there. I did everything I could not to door him, it's just hard-core racing. This place is elbows up and get after it. We're just happy to come out here and put on a show."
 
Bronson was looking for his second career Series win during the East Bay Winternationals, and led 40 of the 50 laps but came up just short. "The late caution definitely hurt me there. I felt like I had a little bit of a gap before that happened, but we had a 1300 on, and them guys had a 40 on. At the end there, when we fired up with nine laps to go, I knew my tire was done. I drove as hard as I could, I felt like, without putting it into the fence. Mason did a good job. He raced me hard, he raced me clean, I wasn't going to wreck him as clean as he raced me. That's all I could do to hold him back, I just couldn't beat that tire. He did a good job. I'd like to thank my guys. We destroyed a car this week and put this Crate car together, and come back and raced last night. I've got some momentum going now and hopefully we'll win $12,000 tomorrow."
 
Sheppard was on a mission to win his third race of the week and led the first 8 laps, and ultimately took another podium finish. "At the beginning, I was going too hard and was overheating my tires on the long runs. Every time I tried to move down, I wasn't any good, but it was because I was overheating my tires. I think Mason had a little different tire than we did, and that probably helped him get down there in the black. Once Kyle passed me there I was just kind of just riding behind him."
 
The winner's Fred Zeigler-owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by JLE Industries, Ohio Pyle Vacation Rentals, Midwest Sheet Metal, and MS Shock Therapy.
 
The rest of top ten finishers were Mike Marlar, Tim McCreadie, Tanner English, Brian Shirley, and Tyler Bruening.

Sheppard Takes Second Win of the Week at East Bay

 
TAMPA, FL (February 6, 2020)- Brandon Sheppard charged from his 12th starting spot to take the lead on lap 14 and never looked back in claiming his second Wrisco Industries Winternationals victory of the week on Thursday Night at East Bay Raceway Park in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event.
 
Sheppard was the fourth and final different leader of the race after Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie and Boom Briggs each took a turn at leading the race in the first 14 circuits. Sheppard held a 1.7 second advantage over Richards at the finish line. Richards was originally slated to start 20th, but started in the tail after a rules violation before the race. Richards then charged to the front in the Clint Bowyer Racing IRacing Rocket to finish second.
 
Billy Moyer Jr, in his Nutrien Ag Solutions Capital Race Car Chassis equaled his best career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series finish with a third place after starting in sixth. Jimmy Owens came home in fourth with Devin Moran, the opening night winner at East Bay Raceway Park, completing the top five drivers.
 
Overton earned the PFC Brakes Pole Award by winning the first heat and was looking to break in the winner's circle for the first time in the Georgia-Florida Speedweeks after coming up with three- second place finishes in the first four races. The 40-lap feature started off good for Overton and points leader Tim McCreadie, as the pair raced side-by-side in the early stages of the race.
 
Overton led the first lap before McCreadie took over the race lead for two laps, but by lap four Overton was back in front of the battle of the pair of Longhorn Chassis drivers. By lap six however, McCreadie was back in front as Boom Briggs started to show his strength working his way to second place. Briggs then made a power move on McCreadie on lap ten, to take over the point.
 
Briggs held the lead until 12th place starter, Sheppard zipped by for the lead. Sheppard held off a trio of drivers in the last half of the race to record his 17th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win, and his fifth at East Bay Raceway Park. Richards moved past Moyer Jr. on lap 33 but ran out of time in his efforts to catch Sheppard.
 
"It's all thanks to my guys for not giving up on me. Our qualifying efforts weren't what they needed to be tonight. Mark Richards and Steve Baker (of Rocket Chassis), Dan, Austin, and Joel all stuck behind me the whole time. They were confident I could get up through there," said the Illinois native, Sheppard.
 
The winner went on to say, "I'll tell you what, I think I'm going to have gray hair by the time we leave here, you just don't know where to go. I knew at some point the cushion (high-side) was going to be the place to be, but the bottom was working for me at the beginning of the race, you don't really know when to move. I just stuck with it and stuck with it and then I see the 14 (Richards) on the board and I knew I had to get my elbows up."
 
Richards will have to wait another night for his eighth career win at East Bay Raceway Park. "We'll certainly take it. Brandon's been good and I just can't thank those guys enough for the help, my dad and everybody. We've had a great car in the feature, we just haven't been able to show it. We've just gotta get a little bit better and start closer to the front and I think we'll be there."
 
After a solid start to the week Moyer Jr. bounced back from a rough Wednesday Night finish. "First thing, congrats to the 1 and 14, they were on it. I didn't have anything for Sheppard. I think on that one caution, my right-front (tire) completely went away and I couldn't run that bottom like earlier in the race. Then you just gotta go up there and run like an idiot around that top and steer with the back tires. This Capital Race Car is awesome. I'm just tickled to death to drive it. My daughter, wife, and family were all watching, my brother's probably yelling at the TV, so it's nice to finally get on the screen."
 
The winner's Mark Richards Racing Rocket 1 House Car is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Gunters Honey, Ace Metal Works, Integra, Sunoco, Keyser Manufacturing and Rocket Pre-Owned Motors.
 
Completing the top ten were Boom Briggs, Brandon Overton, Brian Shirley, Billy Moyer and Tyler Erb.

McCreadie Reaches East Bay Victory Lane on Wednesday Night

 
TAMPA, FL (February 5, 2020)- Tim McCreadie managed to come away with another early season victory Wednesday night at East Bay Raceway Park. He inherited the lead with five laps to go after race leader Jonathan Davenport's misfortune. Davenport appeared to be on his way to victory, but hooked a rut in turn four, folding his nosepiece under and causing his car to come to a halt on the front stretch. Kyle Bronson was unfortunate victim of circumstance, as he did not have time to slow his car down. Bronson made heavy contact with the back of Davenport's car, eliminating both from competition.
 
McCreadie was second at the time of the race changing incident then picked up the lead as he held off Brandon Overton and Brandon Sheppard for his second series victory in four starts this season. It was McCreadie's 17thcareer Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win and his fourth ever at East Bay Raceway Park.
