The win was his sixth of the 2022 season.

“Man, I don’t even know where to begin. That was a pretty exciting race with J.D. (Jonathan Davenport). I bided my time and was starting to think I might not be able to make it happen, but the door opened there on the last lap, and thankfully I was able to make it happen and got the win,” Overton said. “The rest of the weekend wasn’t the greatest for us, but we’re thrilled to get another win. We’ll head to Florida this weekend and see if we can’t turn our luck around at All-Tech Raceway. That place was challenging for us at Speedweeks, but we got a lot of notes and are ready for the challenge.”
