May 30, 2021 - Overton breaks out broom in Ultimate stop at Cherokee
1Brandon Overton wired Sunday night’s ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series event at Cherokee Speedway to snare the $7,500 top prize. The triumph marked the 11th of the season for the driver of the Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model in Victory Lane twice over the weekend.

“On Saturday night, we tried everything that we could but came up a little bit short. Our only hope to pass Randy (Weaver) was for him to mess up, but he never did, so we took second and moved onto Sunday at Cherokee. At Cherokee things went perfectly the whole night, and we got another win,” Overton noted. “This Wells and Sons Motorsports team is something special, and I’m just the lucky guy who gets to drive. We’re looking forward to going after a pair of big wins in West Virginia this coming weekend.”

With Mother Nature altering his original plans, Brandon Overton and the Wells and Sons Motorsports team visited Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Ga.) on Saturday afternoon to kick off his Memorial Day racing weekend with the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals. With the second-fastest qualifying effort in his group behind Austin Horton, positioning him fourth on the starting grid for the $4,053-to-win A-Main, Overton clawed forward two spots in the 40-lapper to register a runner-up finish. He trailed Randy Weaver to the checkers with Austin Horton, Dale McDowell, and Zack Mitchell rounding out the Top-5.

On Sunday at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.) for the Ultimate Southeast Series-sanctioned Mike Butler Memorial, Brandon locked into the pole for the feature after topping the speed charts in time trials.

Leading wire-to-wire in the 50-lap affair, Overton cruised to his 11th win of the season over Brent Dixon, Derrick Ramey, Ross Bailes, and Trent Ivey. His ninth career series triumph was worth $7,500.

May 15, 2021 - Overton sweeps Ultimate weekend, pockets $25,000
1“Virginia is for Lovers,” and with his recent accomplishments it can now also be said that “Virginia is for Brandon Overton.” The Georgia throttle masher parked his Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model in Victory Lane twice over the weekend.

Overton now owns 10 victories on the season.

“Everything fell into place nicely this weekend. On Friday night we bided our time and got to the lead when it counted. Similarly on Saturday I told (team members) before I went out there, ‘I’m just gonna take my time. We got a good starting spot.’ But I’ll admit I fell back a little more than I wanted,” shared Overton. “It was a great weekend for our team, and hopefully we can have another sweep this coming weekend at Port Royal.”

Friday night found Brandon Overton in action at Natural Bridge Speedway (Natural Bridge, Va.) for the Ultimate Southeast Series-sanctioned Road to Jamaica. With the fastest lap in time trials positioning him second on the starting grid for the main event, Overton wrestled away the lead from polesitter Ross Bailes on lap 29 and led the remaining 11 laps to capture his ninth win of the season and a $5,000 prize. Bailes, Trever Feathers, Zack Mitchell, and Cla Knight completed the Top-5 finishers in the 40-lap affair.

The following night at Virginia Motor Speedway (Jamaica, Va.) for the King of the Commonwealth, Brandon topped his 18-car group in qualifying before picking up a heat race victory. After fading as far back as eighth early in the feature, Brandon began his rally to the front near the middle stages of the 60-lapper. Overtaking Jimmy Owens for the lead on lap 40, Overton turned back Owens’ late-race challenge to secure his second win in as many nights and 10th of the season. Taking the checkers ahead of Owens, Josh Richards, Tim McCreadie, and Gregg Satterlee, Brandon earned $20,000 for his eighth-career Ultimate-sanctioned triumph.
