1 Brandon Overton held off several challenges in a furious finish on Saturday to put the Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model in Victory Lane for the fourth straight week.

“I just wanted the race to be done,” said Overton in Victory Lane. “I didn’t know where they were at. I saw so many people on that backstretch some were saying go high or go low and I did not know where to go. I could see him [Sheppard] on the bottom, but I am just fortunate to drive for an awesome group of people. We have had a lot of bad luck, and we have got a fast race car. Thank you to all the fans for coming out tonight. I was excited to see all these people here especially on the backstretch, it’s awesome to come here and see all of these fans. If I am going to win one, it’s great do this in front this crowd. If the fans don’t come see us then we don’t have a job.”

Starting the feature in third, Overton powered ahead of Sheppard on lap 27 and fended off several late-race charges to capture his ninth win of the season.

We’re just gonna keep pushing through it. This was a different car. Longhorn by Wells, man this thing is awesome.

The race honored late racer Gene Maine of Valdosta, Ga., who died in a December automobile accident at the age of 55.

“It’s just great to see all the fans back [here], and it’s just a special race to win. I wanted this one really bad,” Overton said. “Last week I was talking to one of my old racing buddies and he was telling more stories about Gene Maine, so for his family to be here, obviously he’s got a lot of history around these parts.”

“The car was a handful after that last restart. I don’t know if I sealed my right-front [tire] up or what … but we held on,” Overton added. “I have to thank Wells Motorsports for this opportunity and all of our great sponsors. I couldn’t do this without their support.”

“Hey, we got together,” he added. “I’m sure he’s pissed off, but I don’t know what you do. I don’t know. I don’t ever want to see somebody lead the whole race and lose it on the last lap, but hell … what do you do?”

“I’m just glad my car’s been good here lately, the last couple nights,” said Overton. “I can’t thank everybody enough for all the help, all the support.”

1 The Wells Motorsports team are proud to announce Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga. as the driver of the their Big Blue Smoke House/ Longhorn Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engines-powered Super Late Model, effective immediately.

“We’re thrilled to have Brandon as the newest addition to the Wells Motorsports team,” said team manager, Eric Wells. “We’re looking forward to ending 2019 on a high note and sky’s the limit for 2020!”

Brandon Overton is already well-acquainted with both Eric Wells, and his father David. The duo often traveled and parked alongside each other while Overton was a World of Outlaws (WoO) Late Model Series regular in 2015 and 2016.

The 28-year-old standout is preparing to compete in the November 22nd-24th events at Screven Motor Speedway (Sylvania, Ga.), Lancaster (S.C.) Speedway, and Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.).

Wells and Overton are formulating plans for 2020, including Overton’s possible return as a WoO regular and the hiring of two full-time crewmen to assist Overton in maintaining the team’s stable of Cornett-powered Longhorn entries.
