On Friday night, Rocket1 Racing and pilot Brandon Sheppard invaded the famed Bristol Motor Speedway (Bristol, Tenn.) as the half-mile oval was covered in dirt for the two-day Bristol Bash. In a field of 29 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series entries, Sheppard followed up the fifth fastest lap in his time trial group with a second-place finish in his heat behind Jimmy Owens. Starting the $10,000-to-win preliminary feature in fifth, Brandon clawed forward one spot in the 40-lapper to place third, trailing Josh Richards and Chris Madden to the checkers with Rick Eckert and Brandon Overton rounding out the Top-5.
