Five Days of Racing at I-80 Speedway Up Next
EVANS, Ga. (07/19/21) – Brandon Overton added another five-figure payday to the season’s accomplishment list on Sunday night. The Georgia racer wired the field to claim the $20,000 top prize in the inaugural Carolina Sizzler at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.
Overton’s win tally for the 2021 season now resides at 18 in his Wells & Sons Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model.
“Man, I was just glad to get to race. It seems like rain has been wreaking havoc with everything the past few weeks, but it held off long enough for us to get Sunday night in and we got the win. A lot of guys were worried about tires for the feature, but I did my best to take care of my equipment, and everything worked out,” Overton said. “It’s been a while since I’ve been to the Silver Dollar Nationals, but we’re headed that way this weekend and hopefully we can get another big win.”
Brandon Overton returned to the driver’s seat of the Wells Motorsports No. 76 Late Model on Sunday afternoon at the Dirt Track at Charlotte (Concord, N.C.) as he set his sights on winning the inaugural Carolina Sizzler.
With the fastest lap in a field of 28 cars placing him on the pole for the main event, Overton followed fellow front-row starter Derrick Ramey closely for the first two circuits until making the pass for the lead on the third lap.
Once out front, Brandon dominated the remaining distance of the 60-lapper to pick up his 18th win of the season and eighth in his last nine starts. Taking the checkers 2.789 seconds ahead of Tim McCreadie, Michael Chilton, Dale McDowell, and Derrick Ramey, Brandon pocketed $20,000.
