TAMPA, FL (February 7, 2018) – Brandon Overton took the lead on lap 26 from Josh Richards and led the remaining 14 laps to capture his first career East Bay Raceway Park win on Wednesday night. The 42nd Annual Wrisco Industries Winternationals – presented by E3 Spark Plugs produced another spectacular feature race, as the 40-lapper saw three different leaders, and lots of action throughout the field.
Overton’s third career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory came over Josh Richards, Gregg Satterlee, Jonathan Davenport, and Bobby Pierce.
Overton pilots the Chip Stone and Randy Weaver-owned Longhorn Chassis and started on the outside of the front row. He fell back to as far as fourth in the opening laps of the race, as a torrid battle between Jimmy Owens and Richards took place in front of him. Owens led the first three laps, before relinquishing the top spot to Richards. Overton worked his way back into the top three as he passed Satterlee and then set his sights on Richards.
Overton chased down Richards passing him for the lead. Richards and Satterlee tried to run down Overton late in the race, but Overton crossed the line in first to give Longhorn Chassis back-to-back wins for the week.
