After having a difficult week last week Caleb Shepard was able to vindicate himself and grab the checkers for his first win of 2022 in the LaValley Building Supply Dirt Stocks. He would have to work hard but was able to hold off Jesse Dunham who crossed the line in second and Jim Fields who brought home third. A pair of Mikes rounded out the top five with Mike Mann in fourth and Mike McClay in fifth.
