Sheffield not only took the win, but set the track record with a 4.82-second pass shortly after Mike Kelly had turned in a 4.86 to lead the way.
Odie Spurgen ran in the 4.8-second range all night as the Texas 275 racers continue to go quicker and faster at the fastest track in Texas.
“There was a lot of great racing and it just seems like these guys are turning in quicker and quicker times each time they come out to the Motorplex,” Texas Motorplex Competition Director, Eric McClelland, said. “We want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the Texas 275 racers. We had a lot of racers from all over Texas and even a few from Oklahoma. This event is more fun every time we open the gates.”
