(08/03/21) – Brandon Sheppard and Rocket1 Racing rolled into the famed Fairbury Speedway over the weekend for the 31st edition of the Prairie Dirt Classic. Saturday night’s $50,000-to-win finale found Sheppard recording a fifth-place finish in his Valvoline No. 1 Seubert Calf Ranches/ Durham Racing Engines-powered XR1 Rocket Chassis Super Late Model. “Really late in the race when my car came to me, I was a few spots too far back,” Sheppard said. “We just had to make the most out of it and made a few passes on the restarts and just came up short. It’s disappointing because we had a better car than where we finished. We’ll head to Wisconsin this week to go after some more big checks. Thanks as always goes out to all of our marketing partners and supporters.” Taking part in one the biggest weekends of the year with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series, Rocket1Racing and Brandon Sheppard invaded Fairbury Speedway (Fairbury, Ill.) on Friday afternoon for the 31st annual Prairie Dirt Classic.

Starting his $3,000-to-win preliminary feature in sixth, Brandon improved three spots in the 25-lapper to register a third-place finish. With his third-place finish in preliminary action on Friday placing him 11th on the starting grid for Saturday night’s $50,000-to-win Prairie Dirt Classic, Sheppard advanced six spots in the 100-lap affair to finish fifth.

Zeb Wise outruns the Wild Child in closing laps for $5,000 Attica victory

ATTICA, Ohio (September 3, 2021) - It has not been an easy season for Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise, but the recent high school graduate shook off the bad luck Friday night at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, and cashed in for his second FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2021 season, outrunning National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jac Haudenschild in the closing circuits to do so. In addition, It was a first-ever Attica Raceway Park victory for the Indiana youngster; his first All Star victory since scoring $26,000 in Kokomo Speedway’s Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race in late May.
Jac Haudenschild hung on to finish second in the Attica Ambush opener, the only non-All Star within the top-five, followed by Skylar Gee, Spencer Bayston, and Hunter Schuerenberg.
“Man, the last month and a half have been so rough...a lot of things within our control, but a lot of things that weren’t. I don’t think I’ve ever had a year as rough as this one,” Zeb Wise said in Attica victory lane, driver of the Sundollar Restoration, Quick Pits Auto Parts, No. 10. “To stand up here after all of the hard work everyone has done is so rewarding, especially here...I love Attica...I love all of the fans...this place is electric and I love being here.”
Although Wise was the man on top on lap 35, the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer was the man in charge for much of the 35-lap contest, leading the first 27 circuits from the outside-pole position. Shaffer set a solid pace, but it was not without challenges, as Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck did his best to outduel Shaffer on many occasions, showing his nose multiple times between laps 16 and 19. Traffic was a factor between laps 11 and 16, but a pair of cautions on laps 17 and 19 cleared the track for Shaffer.
Unfortunately for Peck, any hope for victory came to a halt on lap 24, as a flat tire, discovered while awaiting clean up for a red flag incident, forced the Coastal Race Parts No. 13 to go to the work area.
Meanwhile, Wise, who started fourth, was already on the move, battling by Jac Haudenschild for third at the midpoint before working by Peck for second on lap 23. The lap 24 restart would allow Wise to get a run on Shaffer and show the Aliquippa, Pennsylvania-native his nose, but another red flag incident on lap 27 would halt Wise’s potential.
Determined to get by, Wise repeated his pass attempt the following restart, eventually sliding Shaffer between turns three and four to take the lead on lap 28. The main event’s final caution would appear on lap 30, this time for Tim Shaffer, who ultimately slowed due to mechanical issues.
From that point forward, it was all Wise at the front of the field, withstanding late race pressure from Jac Haudenschild before stretching his legs in the final three circuits.
“I looked up at the board at one point and saw that the ‘28’ was in front of me and the ‘3’ was behind me,” Wise continued. “I thought to myself these guys have been racing here longer than I’ve been alive.”
The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude the 2021 Attica Ambush with the $10,000-to-win finale on Saturday, September 4. Racing is set to hit high gear at 6 p.m., sharp. Gates will open at 2 p.m.
