Drawing 23 Late Models for the two-day event, Brandon laid down the fastest lap in time trials before placing first in his heat.

Rolling off on the pole for Saturday’s National 100, Overton shot out to an early race lead before a flat left-rear tire dropped him to the tail on lap 23. Wasting no time working his way back to the front, Brandon tracked down his brother Cody for the lead on lap 54 and led the remainder of the 100-lapper to secure his second consecutive National 100 victory and 14th of the 2022 campaign. He pocketed a $30,000 payday ahead of Tyler Erb, Joseph Joiner, Wil Herrington, and J.R. Moseley.

After sneaking past Tim McCreadie for second on lap 13, Overton surrendered second back to McCreadie on lap 89 but a flat tire two circuits later ended his night immediately. He was credited with a 19th-place outing.
