With 55 Late Models entered for a round of prelims, Overton laid down the fastest time in his group before Mother Nature made an appearance when heat races were staging. Continuous rain and an unfavorable forecast forced officials to cancel the remainder of the program.

Outrunning Brandon Sheppard in his heat race on Saturday afternoon, Overton locked into the sixth-starting position for the $75,000-to-win North-South 100. Starting in sixth, Brandon made a late charge to dethrone race-long pacesetter Jonathan Davenport but came up short in the 100-lapper. He followed Davenport to the checkers with Dale McDowell, Ricky Thornton Jr., and Mike Marlar rounding out the Top-5.
