Overton Chalks up Win #3 on Southern Nationals Tour7/26/2019
All 35 laps at the Crossville Speedway for round 7 of the Schaffer’s Oil Southern Nationals belonged to the Rum Runner Racing #2 and driver Brandon Overton.
After a strong run in hot-laps and qualifying, Overton started the feature from the outside pole position. When the green flag flew, Overton jumped to the lead and never looked back. Lap traffic, late race cautions, and a hard charge by Jason Jameson were not enough to break Overton’s stride around the high banked clay oval.
With 2 races left on the tour, the Rum Runner Racing team is in a close points battle. Last night, the glad was closed by almost half. The final 2 races take place at 411 Speedway tonight, and Tazewell Speedway on Saturday night. Overton has had success at both tracks in the past, scoring a 2nd place finish at 411 earlier this year.
