Sheppard wins the Super DIRTcar Big Block Series to cap off 2017  at Cornwall Motor Speedway

sean Sep 18, 2017 - 7:05pm

The Big Blocks visited the Cornwall Motor Speedway last Sunday, capping off the 2017 racing season for the area's track. 

Tim O’Brien and Keith Flach led the field of 30 cars to the green, when Steve Bernard slowed the group on the initial lap and yellow lights were out. Flach took first as racing continued, with Peter Britten and O’Brien colliding on lap 7.

Flach remained in front, with Larry Wight moving up to second and O’Brien bringing another caution on lap 21. Wight was quick on the restart to seize the lead over Flach on lap 25, as Billy Decker followed suit two laps later. Wight had Decker as a dancing partner, as Decker then grabbed the first position, while Matt Sheppard moved up to third.

Decker pulled away from the field as Wight, Sheppard, Flach, and Alexandria's Chris Raabe were the top 5 when the race reached the halfway point.

The leaders got into heavy traffic with 60 laps in the books. Cornwall Speedway track champion Chris Raabe slowed, and caution was out on lap 72. Decker remained the top man, however, as the battle continued for second spot. Sheppard was able to pass Wight for the position on lap 81 and set his sights on Decker. Lap traffic helped Sheppard, as he closed in on Decker with 10 laps to go. Sheppard used the inside lane and surprised the leader on lap 92. The drivers challenged each other the rest of the way, but Sheppard stayed in front to garner win #10 on the tour in 2017.

Fireball Enduro, Super DIRTcar Big Block Series to cap off Speedway season

The race season will then officially conclude a week later (Sept. 17), with the Super DIRTcar Big Block Series completing the remake race.

The tour has a busy month of September, travelling to Quebec this weekend and then to Brewerton, Mohawk, and Cornwall. Along with the 100-lap Modified, 50-lap Sportsman and 35-lap Pro-Stocks races will also be on the card.

Hot laps are scheduled to start at 4 pm, with time trials and heat racing to start at approximately 4:30 pm. The pit gates will open at noon with a cost of $45, and the general admission will open at 1:30 pm with a cost of $35 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $5 for kids 16 years old and under.
