After Decades Of On Track Battles, Morgan Shepherd Faces New Challenge
As we come to a close of 2020, it truly has been a challenging year to many, and for Morgan Shepherd, it is no different. For the first time in 52 consecutive years, Morgan did not participate in any of NASCAR's three Series. Morgan was in a battle of a different sorts in the challenging 2020 year. After a long year of health issues, Morgan has been diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.
However, in true Shepherd fashion, he is determined to look into 2021 and make plans for another year of NASCAR racing, as a Car Owner. We all have had challenges to overcome and Morgan has always wanted to be an encourager, defying his age in physical and mental ability. Morgan's charity work with the physically challenged has inspired him in the toughest times and currently continues in his diagnosis.
