Brandon Overton Holds off Rick Eckert by .119 second to Score $20,000 USA 100 Victory; Carson Ferguson Scores $3000 FASTRAK Win

Jamaica, VA – In the closest finish in Ultimate Super Late Model Series history Brandon Overton of Evans, GA held off Rick Eckert of York, PA by .119 seconds to score the $20,000 win in the 43rd annual USA at Virginia Motor Speedway. Overton would take the lead on lap 21 and looked to have the race in hand that is until lap 56 when Eckert began to pressure Overton for the lead. On the final lap Eckert worked under Overton in turn 3, the two raced side by side back to the finish line with Overton holding off Eckert for the win. “I was just holding on there the last couple of laps, I guess Billy (Vacek) was riding with us tonight; I wanted to win the other night at Fayetteville but I will take this $20,000 over that $10,000 any day,” commented a very emotional Brandon Overton in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Rick Eckert, Ross Bailes, Zack Mitchell, and Chris Ferguson rounded out the top five. In other action Carson Ferguson of Charlotte, NC was at the right place at the right time, taking the lead when race leader Layton Sullivan blew a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 heading to the checkers to score the $3000 victory in a caution-filled FASTRAK Racing Touring Series 40 lap feature. It was Ferguson’s third touring series win in a row. Rounding out the top five were Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams. Ross Bailes and Michael Brown led the 30 car field to green with Brown taking the lead out of turn 2 followed by Chris Ferguson. Bailes would take second back on the next circuit. By lap 5 brown had worked to a two-car length advantage. The races first caution would fall on lap 7 for a stopped Corey Gordon in turn 4. On the restart, Bailes rocketed around Brown in turn 1 and 2 to take over the top spot. On lap 9 Brandon Overton went to second with an inside pass of Brown in turn 2. By Lap 16 Overton was within a car length of Bailes as they approached lapped traffic. On lap 18 Overton was on the back of Bailes as they began to enter the lapped traffic. On lap 20 Overton made his move, getting to the inside of Bailes out of turn 2. They raced side by side until turn 4 where Overton took over the lead. Eric Erwin would bring out the caution on lap 21 as he slowed in turn 4. On the restart Overton jumped out to a quick two-car length lead while Rick Eckert went from fifth to third in two corners, getting by Chris Ferguson and Brown. By lap 30 Overton was back in lapped traffic allowing Bailes and Eckert to close. Just as it looked like things were going to get interesting Trevor Feathers brought out the third caution of the race when his car slowed going down the backstretch. On the lap 32 restart, Overton once again jumped to a three car length advantage over Bailes and Eckert. On lap 36 Casey Roberts, who had made a run from twenty-eighth to tenth, slowed on the front stretch with mechanical issues. On the lap 36 restart Overton once again got a great jump on the field as Ferguson took back third from Eckert. ON lap 42 the best battle on the track was the one for third between Ferguson, Eckert and fourteenth starting Zack Mitchell. By lap 48 Eckert had taken third and Mitchell fourth. On lap 48 the races fifth caution would fall for Jamie Lathroum who came to pit road for a flat right rear tire. On lap 49 Bailes got inside Overton coming out of turn 4, Overton would hold at the line. On the next circuit, things got really interesting as Overton, Bailes, Overton and Mitchell were all battling for the lead. On lap 53 Eckert would dive under Bailes going down the backstretch. On lap 54 caution would fall for a stopped Jeff Smith in turn 4. On the races final green Overton and Eckert would jump out to a two car length on the rest of the field. On lap 56 Eckert worked his way inside Overton in turn 4 and then again in turn 2. On the final lap Overton led Eckert into turn 2 and down the backstretch. As the barreled into turn 3 Eckert got inside Overton, as they raced off turn 4 they raced side by side to the line with Overton holding off Eckert by .119 seconds for the victory. Heat race winners – Ross Bailes, Michael Brown, Chris Ferguson and Daulton Wilson. In the FASTRAK Touring Series, 40 lap feature Jensen Ford and Justin Williams led the 29 car field to green. The two raced side by side back to the line with Ford take the lead by inches at the line. In turn 1 Ford would get by to put some distance between himself and Williams. Ford would pace the field until lap 19 when Ford slowed coming out of turn 2 bringing out the caution. On the restart, Williams got a good jump on the field with Logan Roberson and Trevor Feathers in tow. A big crash involving seven cars on lap 26 would bring out a red flag for clean-up. It took five times to get the race restarted on lap 25 but once it did Williams began to pull away. On lap 34 Williams’ night came to an end when he blew a right rear tire sending him to the infield. That started the beginning of flat right rear tires going flat. First Trevor Feathers just after taking over the lead on the caution on lap 35, then Kyle Lear amongst others. Layton Sullivan would lead the field to green for the final time and looked to have his first career win only to blow a right rear tire coming out of turn 4 to the checkers, which allowed Carson Ferguson to take the $3000 victory over Trevor Feathers, Layton Sullivan, Corey Almond and Ryan Adams rounding out the top five.
