October 31, 2021 - Brandon Overton claims $20,000 victory in National 100 at EAMS
1
Continuing to add new accolades to his record book, Brandon Overton claimed $20,000 for his first-career National 100 victory on Sunday afternoon in his Wells & Sons Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton / Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells Motorsports/ Clements Racing Engines Inc.-powered Super Late Model.

The triumph was his 29th of what has become a legendary 2021 campaign.

“Growing up where I’m from, this place is special to all of us,” said Overton, whose hometown of Evans, Ga., is less than four hours from the 3/8-mile oval just west of Columbus, Ga. “I know it’s a long weekend, but we wouldn’t spend it any other way than racing.”

With a triumph in the 47th running of the event now added to his 2021 accomplishment list, Overton paused in Victory Lane to reflect on what this season has meant to him.

“It’s surreal. Hat’s off to my car owners. It’s all because of them. They gave me the opportunity to put a team together and give me all the tools to do it with. We just took advantage of it. “I don’t know how to put into words what we’ve been able to do,” Overton added. “It’s been an unbelievable year. I don’t know what to say. My crew bust their butt on this thing week in and week out. They sure do make my job a lot easier.”

Wells & Sons Motorsports and pilot, Brandon Overton, ventured to East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Ala.) on Saturday evening to compete in the 47th annual National 100. With 25 Late Models entered, Overton laid down the fastest time in his qualifying group before dashing to a heat race win.

Locked into the second-starting position for Sunday’s finale, Brandon trailed early pacesetter Mark Whitener for the first half of the race until he made his move to the front. Sneaking ahead right after the halfway point, Overton powered to his 29th win of the season, which came ahead of Dennis Erb Jr., Randy Weaver, Austin Horton, and Mark Whitener. He collected a $20,000 prize for his late-race triumph.

Overton’s latest strikes came in the World of Outlaws Mike Duvall Memorial on Friday night at Cherokee Speedway and in the Tennessee State Championship on Saturday evening at 411 Motor Speedway as his season win total expanded to 28.

While Overton worked his way to the lead early at 411 Motor Speedway, he had to bide his time on Friday night at Cherokee Speedway.

“(Daulton Wilson) was good. I just kind of got back there to see where I’m better, or I’m worse,” Overton said. “He was just slidin’ up and kind of blocking my momentum, so I couldn’t really roll past him, so, I told myself just slow down and maintain. I think I seen Sheppard underneath me one time, and I was just like if I don’t go, he’s going to pass me, and I didn’t want him to get by me if the caution come out. We got to the lead and used lapped traffic to our advantage and got another Cherokee Speedway win.

“On Saturday night, I knew Cory (Hedgecock) would be the guy to beat at 411 (Motor Speedway). I was able to use momentum in lapped traffic to get past him, and then we were able to cruise to the win.”

Wells Motorsports pilot Brandon Overton returned to Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.) on Friday evening for the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series-sanctioned Mike Duvall Memorial V8 Nationals.

With 29 Late Models entered, Overton’s heat race victory promoted him into the redraw. Receiving the second-starting position for the A-Main, Brandon lost the top spot to Daulton Wilson on the opening circuit but kept him within striking distance as the pair navigated through lapped-traffic. Sneaking ahead of Wilson on lap 25, Overton went on to capture his 27th win of the season and 18th career WoO victory in the 40-lapper.

He took the checkers ahead of Brandon Sheppard, Wilson, Chris Ferguson, and Chris Madden to pocket $10,000.

On Saturday afternoon at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.) for the Tennessee State Championship, Brandon topped the 17-car field in time trials before cruising to his second win in as many nights in the feature, which came ahead of Cory Hedgecock, Pierce McCarter, Jensen Ford, and Chase King. He earned $5,000 for his 28th triumph of 2021.
