1Wells and Sons Motorsports pilot Brandon Overton invaded Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.) on Friday afternoon for the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series-sanctioned Rock Gault Memorial. With the 43-car field split into two separate groups for a pair of preliminary features, Brandon followed up the second fastest time in his qualifying group with an eight-lap heat race victory.

The dual triumphs in his Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model grossed Overton $25,000.

1Brandon Overton returned to Cochran Motor Speedway on Friday night for the completion of the Gobbler 100, rescheduled from November 28th. With his second-starting position for the feature already locked in, Brandon snuck past polesitter Kyle Bronson on the sixth lap and led the remaining distance of the 75-lapper to claim his fifth win of the season and a $20,000 prize. Michael Page, Ross Bailes, Bronson, and Parker Martin trailed him to the checkers.

“That’s probably one of the best race cars I’ve driven,” Overton said of his David Wells-owned Longhorn Chassis. “That thing would run right around there you know and stay stuck. Hat’s off to my crew … Steve, Kent, Mitch and Phil and everybody that comes by my shop. It’s a whole team effort. We got our car owner here tonight, David. I’m glad he drove in.”

In the Crate Late Model ranks on Friday, Overton scored a third-place finish in the $5,000-to-win feature, trailing Wil Herrington and Kyle Bronson across the line with Ahnna Parkhurst and Jeremy Faircloth rounding out the Top-5 finishers.

For the full program on Saturday night, Overton posted the second fastest lap overall in time trials, which positioned him second on the starting grid for the A-Main. Wrestling away the top spot from Kyle Bronson on the opening lap, Brandon led wire-to-wire en route to his sixth win of the season. Finishing ahead of Scott Bloomquist, Wil Herrington, Ross Bailes, and Bronson, Overton collected $5,000.

“A pretty good weekend for us. It feels good. We were actually way better last night than we were tonight. I wasn’t as maneuverable, but hell, we’ll take it,” Overton said in victory lane.

Overton led all 60 laps of Sunday’s March Madness in his Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model.

1Drawing 40 Southern All Star Series entries, Brandon topped the 40-car field in time trials before streaking to an eight-lap heat race victory. Leading wire-to-wire in the 60-lap feature, Overton cruised to his fourth win of the season over Jonathan Davenport, Jimmy Owens, Zack Mitchell, and Stewart Friesen.

“We had a pretty crappy night last night,” Overton said of the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series event where he finished 11th. “We got behind early and couldn’t make it up. We kind of come over here today with a point to prove. We’ve gotta set fast time and win those heats and put yourself in position (to win), especially tonight, the way the racetrack was. It’s real critical. You’ve gotta get up there in the front because a lot of these guys, they don’t mess up.”

1Earlier in the weekend, Overton visited Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tenn. for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series-sanctioned Tennessee Tipoff.

In a stout field of 51 Late Models on Saturday, Overton followed up the ninth fastest time in his qualifying group with the third and final transfer spot in his heat race. Starting the $12,000-to-win A-Main in 17th, Brandon improved six spots in the 50-lapper to register an 11th-place outing.
