ERIE, PA— August 20, 2017— Brandon Sheppard conquered his 14th World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series win of the season and his second win in a row in the state of Pennsylvania on Sunday night at Eriez Speedway. While it is no surprise to see Rocket Chassis house car in Victory Lane, the shootout was anything but predictable as three different drivers commanded the lead throughout the 50-lap event including Russ King, Jared Miley and eventual winner, Sheppard.
