In a field of 42 XR Super Series entries, Brandon clocked in eighth-fastest in his group before placing third in his heat. Marching through the field 12 spots in the $20,000-to-win preliminary feature, Sheppard rolled to a fourth-place finish in the 40-lapper. He trailed Shane Clanton, Tyler Erb, and Jimmy Owens to the checkers with Jonathan Davenport coming in fifth.

For Tuesday’s $40,000-to-win A-Main, Sheppard edged his way into the finale with the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat. Rolling off on the eighth row, Brandon passed six cars in the 60-lap affair to register a ninth-place finish.

On Friday, Brandon returned to the driver’s seat of the Rocket1 Racing No. 1 Late Model as the two-day Jackson 100 weekend kicked off with the Night Before the Jackson.

After locking into the 10th-starting position for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned A-Main via a third-place finish in his heat, persistent showers postponed the 40-lap feature to Saturday afternoon.

Starting the $10,000-to-win A-Main in 10th, Sheppard gained four spots to register a seventh-place finish.

Later Saturday night, Brandon followed up a sixth-place finish in his heat with a fourth-place outing in his B-Main, forcing him to use a provisional into the Jackson 100 finale. With $20,000 on the line, Sheppard gained 12 spots in the 100-lap affair to cross the line in 11th.

Brandon remains in second in the latest LOLMDS point standings.
