“Big Sexy” Brandon Overton Claims Big Payday at FASTRAK World Championship; Nick Hoffman Scores Dirt Cup Challenge Victory

(Story by Zach Evans, Speed51.com Southeast Editor & Dave Seay) JAMAICA, VA – More than 100 drivers showed up at Virginia Motor Speedway to compete for the richest prize in Dirt Pro Late Model racing, the 2019 FASTRAK World Championship presented by James River Equipment. At night’s end, Brandon Overton returned to victory lane at the Jamaica, Virginia half-mile, claiming the $50,000 prize. Overton, a winner earlier this year at Virginia in the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series USA 100, arrived in a one-off appearance driving Grant Pearl’s Pro Late Model. Overton showed dominant pace all weekend, finishing first and second in a pair of heat races to earn a front-row feature starting spot. Overton quickly took the lead from pole-sitter Logan Roberson, holding off Ross Bailes throughout the night to pick up one of the biggest wins of his career. While “Big Sexy” has won a $50,000 race before, he was ecstatic to be able to do so in a Pro Late Model race, returning to his roots in a monumental event for the FASTRAK Racing Series. “I’ve won $50,000 before at the Hillbilly, but this is awesome for Stan and everybody at FASTRAK and everybody at Virginia Motor Speedway,” said Overton in victory lane. “To put $50,000 up for a Crate race, everybody thinks it’s easy to come out here and jump these guys, but it ain’t. I’m just one of the ones fortunate enough to have people support me to go Super racing. This is where I came from, so if Stan’s going to put this race on, I’m going to support it.” Overton held off Bailes on several restarts throughout the 75-lap feature and tipped his cap to the fellow Super Late Model standout for a clean, hard-fought race. “I appreciate him racing me clean on those restarts,” said Overton. “Hats off to them guys. This is awesome. I’m starting to like Virginia Motor Speedway, that’s for sure.” Bailes finished second in the event, content with his car and impressed with Overton’s performance. “I’d like to be holding that check,” said Bailes. “Second is not a bad payout. We had a pretty good car; I think we were as good as [Overton]. I tried to get him on the restarts. Once he had me cleared, I was kind of trying to save my tires, but he had a lot more left than I did so maybe I was going too hard.” Trent Ivey rounded out the podium, finishing third after starting ninth and battling traffic throughout the race. “A couple of driver errors early put me behind the eight-ball, I really had to battle for my position,” explained Ivey. “That cost me at the end. I had to use my tires up. I felt I was about as good as them, but third place, I can’t complain.” Justin Williams finished fourth, while 2018 FASTRAK World Champion Logan Roberson rounded out the top five. In the $6000 to win Dirt Cup Challenge UMP Modified 40 lap feature, Nick Hoffman took the lead on lap 22 from Christian Thomas as the two exited turn 4. Once out front Hoffman was able to pull away to capture the win and possibly clinch the UMP Modified National Championship in the process. “Christian is one of my customers, and he ran a really good race out there. Once David (Stremme) got in front of me I knew I kinda chose the wrong line on there on that restart after the first time, but I just let them guys go. I knew it was going to be little abrasive on tires and I just watched them guys hustle their stuff way too hard at the beginning there and I just kinda cruised you know. Man the second half of the race I kinda had to go, man I could go anywhere. This thing (car) would go anywhere,” commented Hoffman in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Chris Arnold and Christian Thomas led the field to green with Thomas taking the lead with Nick Hoffman in tow. On lap 4 Arnold slowed as the field headed into turn one with David Stremme just narrowly missing Arnold as he limped his car to the infield. The races first caution would come out on lap 6 for a stopped car in turn 4. On the restart Stremme dove under Hoffman in turn 1, taking over second. Thomas paced the field as they raced two and three wide behind him. On lap 19 Hoffman would finally find his way around Stremme for second. Hoffman then set out to reel in Thomas. On lap 20 Hoffman began looking for a way around Thomas. That chance came on lap 22 as Hoffman drove under Thomas in turn 4 to take the lead at the line. Once Hoffman cleared Thomas for the lead, he began to stretch out his advantage over the field. A couple of cautions gave Stremme a chance to get by Hoffman on the restart, but Hoffman was up for the challenge. Hoffman would go on to take the $6000 Dirt cup Challenge win and potentially the UMP Modified National Championship in the process. “We may be really close to it (UMP Modified National Point Championship), we’ve got three more weeks, and one of my customers is in second, and he is running a max point show tonight in Missouri. It’s going to come down to him or me,“ commented Hoffman when asked about clinching the national championship. David Stremme, Taylor Cook, Christian Thomas, and Daniel Parker rounded out the top five. The 2019 Dirt Series Championship weekly racing season at Virginia Motor Speedway has concluded. The next event will be the 16th annual Run-A-Muck Mud Bog and Mud Sling over at The Pit at Virginia Motor Speedway on Saturday October 5th. Eleven divisions will compete at the state-of-art mud bog facility. Steve Sims in Stone Chrusher will be on hand for a bone-crushing monster truck freestyle show.

During the race, Erwin fell back to seventh before making his way back to the front. On lap 24 Erwin got by Corey Almond for third and then second on lap 31. Erwin then made the exciting high side pass on the race’s final lap to score the win. “At first I didn’t know if I wanted to do any Pro (Crate) Late Model racing as we do so much Limited Late and Super Late model racing. But with the $50,000 to win event that you guys are running next week, we thought we would give it a try,” commented Erwin in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Erwin continued, “This gives us momentum and a good feeling heading into that race, and I think I am starting to like this crate racing.” Rounding out the top five were Walker Arthur, Justin Williams, Corey Almond, and David Watts. With his third-place finish Justin Williams of Concord, VA held off Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA by four points for the 2019 Victory Lap Pro Late Model championship.

In the Sportsman Mechanic’s race Pat Gonzales drove his son’s car to victory. Walker Arthur and Trevor Collins led the 27 car field to green in the Victory Lap Pro Late Model 35 lap feature with Collins taking the lead out of turn 2. Collins would pace the field until Arthur would get inside the leader in turn 3 to take the lead on lap 6. Justin Williams would grab second from Collins on lap seven and set out to reel in Arthur. On lap 13 the leaders began racing in heavy traffic with Williams closing on Arthur as they weaved their way through traffic. The races first caution would fly on lap 18 with a car slowing on the backstretch. Things picked up on lap 24 win Eric Erwin got past Corey Almond for third. Once in third Erwin set out to catch Williams in second. On lap 29 Erwin began looking inside Williams for second place. On lap 31 Erwin decided to take the high side in turn 1, taking the position.

Rounding out the top 10 were Mark Gonzales, Steve Causey, Tyler Shipp, and Tim Shelton. Joe Weiss would finish sixth and claim the Championship. The best battle on the track ended up being the one between point leader Joe Weiss and defending Champion Tim Shelton. In qualifying, Shelton closed the point battle to seven and started in front of Weiss on the starting grid. On the first lap Shelton would spin and have to go to the rear of the field. Shelton would work his way back to Weiss’s bumper by lap 17. On lap 19 Shelton got outside Weiss in turn 1 with the two making contact and allowing Shelton to take the spot. It was not enough as Weiss would claim his first Truckin Thunder Sportsman Championship. The Collision One Limited Stock Car division has been competitive, but if you looked at the results it might look like James Givens dominated the entire season. That was not the case as the division had multiple winners and lots of action upfront each week. On this night Givens would take the lead from Trent Clemans with an outside pass out of turn 2 to take the lead on lap 6. With Clemans and Cory Bradley battling for second, Givens was able to pull away and drive on to the win.
