WHEEL, TN – The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series returns to the Duck River Raceway Park for the sixth visit in tour history next Friday night, March 6, for a 50-lap $10,000-to-win event.
Two-time and defending Series champion Brandon Sheppard, of New Berlin, IL, is the most recent Morton Buildings Feature winner at Duck River – capturing last year’s big check after a great battle with runner-up Chase Junghans. Junghans, of Manhattan, KS, jumped out to the early lead from the pole, fending off Sheppard’s challenges in the early going. Sheppard took the lead permanently on lap 26, leading the rest of the way for his fifth-consecutive Feature win.
Coming into the weekend, Sheppard carries the points lead on the back of one win, three runner-up finishes and seven total top-10s through seven starts. He currently leads three-time Series champion Darrell Lanigan, of Union, KY, by 32 points and 2019 Rookie of the Year Ricky Weiss, of Headingley, MB, by 54. Scott Bloomquist Racing drivers Chris Madden, of Gray Court, SC, (-90) and Scott Bloomquist, of Mooresburg, TN, (-110) round out the top five.
Weiss and Madden are the only other drivers inside the top-five with a win through the first seven races, both of them scoring victories in the season-opening Battle at the Border event at Vado Speedway Park in January. Cade Dillard, of Robeline, LA, sits eighth in points and scored his first-ever Morton Buildings Feature win in the 75-lap finale at Vado.
Joining the Outlaws in the racing program will be the Crate Racin’ USA Street Stocks and 604 Late Models, Pure/Hobby Stocks, Limited Late Models and Pure Pony. Hot Laps are scheduled for a 6 p.m. start time.
