About Brandon

30-year-old Brandon Sheppard has spent the last decade cementing his name in the history books as one of the greatest to ever drive a super late model on dirt. 4 World of Outlaws Titles, 5 Dirt Track World Championships, 3 Prairie Dirt Classics, 3 World Finals Wins in Charlotte 2 Silver Dollar Nationals and numerous other Crown Jewel and big money wins throughout his career place him as a fan favorite and a legitimate threat anytime he steps into a 900 horsepower Super Late Model.

In 2023, Brandon will begin a new chapter as Partner and Driver of the newly-formed Sheppard Riggs Racing (SRR) team - a joint venture between former racer and successful businessman Scott Riggs and 3-generations of Sheppards, whom have shared much success in the Midwest over the last 30 years. SRR, based just outside of Springfield, Illinois, will place Brandon in the limelight as they vie for their first ever points Championship as a team running the CASE Late Models World of Outlaws circuit across the nation.
