Brandon Overton Rallies Late for $10,053 Spring Nationals Score



Volunteer Speedway’s Spring Thaw on Deck


EVANS, Ga. (04/02/24) – Utilizing a last-lap pass over racing veteran and fellow Georgian Dale McDowell, Brandon Overton stole the $10,053 victory and his third win of the season in I-75 Raceway’s Schaeffer Spring Nationals event on Friday night behind the wheel of Wells & Sons Motorsports No. 76 Convenient Lube / Muscle Factory/ Wells Motorsports Race Car / Clements Racing Engines - powered Super Late Model.


“Honestly, I was just gonna have to go wherever Dale didn’t,” Overton said in Victory Lane. “I caught him … and I knew I had my tires way too hot so I just kind of rode around and let ‘em cool down. Then I moved back around the top and it was sticking again so I was like, ‘All right, this is the last time. I gotta go get him’.”


The Evans, Ga., native capped off the doubleheader weekend with a second-place finish in Saturday’s Lil’ Bill Corum Memorial at Tazewell Speedway.


Joining a strong contingent of 38 Late Models at I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.) on Friday for the second stop of the 15-race Schaeffer’s Spring Nationals tour, Overton qualified fourth-fastest in his time trial group before placing second in his heat race.


Charging from the fourth row to the front in the feature, Brandon made a last-lap pass over pacesetter Dale McDowell to claim this third win of the season and 10th-career victory with the series.


He earned a $10,053 prize ahead of McDowell, Sam Seawright, Ricky Weiss, and Trey Mills.


For Saturday’s Lil’ Bill Corum Memorial at Tazewell Speedway (Tazewell, Tenn.), Brandon raced into the $21,000-to-win weekend finale with a convincing heat race win. Starting on the front row, Overton rolled to a consistent second-place finish in the 75-lapper, chasing Dale McDowell to the checkers.
