There was an altercation involving a four-wheeler and a motorcycle at Portsmouth Raceway Park
Tonight, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is racing in Portsmouth, Ohio. The 3/8-mile track of Portsmouth Raceway Park is hosting the Dirt Track World Championship.
The winner of tonight’s feature takes home a check for $100,000. It’s also the finale race of the year for the national super late model division.
Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, IL and Chris Ferguson of Mount Holly, NC started on the front row in heat 5. Ferguson slid from the bottom to the top in turn one. It looked clear. That was mostly confirmed via a dusty video replay.
However, as Sheppard was placed in dirty air, his car got light and he jumped the cushion. In one corner, Sheppard dropped outside the top 5 as he gathered it up.
