BARBERVILLE, Fla. - Tim McCreadie won a furious DIRTcar Late Model battle with Brandon Sheppard Tuesday night at the DIRTcar Nationals at Florida’s Volusia Speedway Park, halting Sheppard’s five-race win streak at the event.

McCreadie and Sheppard started side-by-side on the front row and put on a wheel-to-wheel clinic for 30 laps. McCreadie powered his machine on the top side as Sheppard kept pace on the bottom. Kyle Bronson entered the picture late to keep the pressure on Sheppard, who moved up and down on track trying to find a line past McCreadie.

A caution with ten laps to go gave McCreadie a clear track, but Sheppard still threw everything he had at him in the final two corners before coming up just a half-second short at the checkered flag.

Bronson followed in third, with Dennis Erb, Jr. in fourth and Blairsville, Georgia’s Jonathan Davenport in fifth.

The Super DIRTcar Series kicked off its portion of the DIRTcar Nationals with defending Series champion Mat Williamson holding off Erick Rudolph, who nearly pulled even with Williamson just as a caution waved on lap 13.

Williamson darted back to the lead on the restart while Anthony Perrego mounted a charge and nearly got Rudolph. Stewart Friesen charged from 19th to finish fourth with Larry Wight completing the top five.

The DIRTcar Nationals continues on Wednesday night, as the World of Outlaws Late Models opens their portion of the race week, while the Super DIRTcar Series continues their competition.
