He was third behind Daryn Pittman and Logan Schuchart at New Egypt Speedway. Sheppard won the Race of Champions Dirt Tour event Wednesday night at Utica-Rome Speedway. By way of two straight wins, Heroth sewed up his first career track championship in the Small Block Super Modified division at Oswego Speedway.
