Brandon Overton Scores $20,000 Virginia Is For Racing Lovers King of the Commonwealth Victory; Carson Ferguson Scores $3000 FASTRAK Win

Jamaica, VA – Brandon Overton of Evans, GA, is making a habit of winning at Virginia Motor Speedway. With the Virginia Is For Racing Lovers King of the Commonwealth win, Overton has now won the last three marquee events in a row at the ½ mile speed plant. Overton would fall back to ninth before working his way back to the front, passing Jimmy Ownes of Newport, TN, on lap 40 for the lead. Overton would fend off Owens with ten laps to go to score his second career, King of the Commonwealth triumph, and $20,000 paycheck in front of a fantastic crowd. The win did not come easily for Overton, however. Overton fell back in the field in the early stages, conserving his tires and equipment in the 60-lap feature for a late charge. However, even Overton believed he might have given up too much at the start of the race. “I sure know how to make it hard on myself,” said Overton in victory lane. I was sitting in a pretty good spot, and I had a game plan. I was just going to sit there and take it easy for a little bit. I got back to about eighth or ninth and said, ‘Damn, I’ve really screwed this up.’ My car was really good. I just kept the tires on it and made sure I didn’t wad it up when I fell back a little bit.” Overton has now won $90,000 across Virginia Motor Speedway’s last three marquee Dirt Late Model events with the win. While the track’s 2020 season was lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Overton won the $20,000 USA 100 and the $50,000 FASTRAK World Championship in 2019. “I love this place, man. I love racing here. I always seem to do good. There was a lot of pressure going into this weekend; there were a lot of good cars here. I’m just really fortunate to drive good race cars for good people.” G.R. Smith of Cornelious, NC, started on the pole and led the first 34 laps before a mechanical issue (lost driveshaft) forced him to the infield for the night, handing the lead over to Owens. Over the next six laps, Overton made several attempts to get by Owens for the lead, finally securing the top spot with a pass out of turn 2 to take over the top spot. Owens would finish second to Overton, making the most of the last-minute decision to compete for the Virginia Is For Racing Lovers King of the Commonwealth crown but falling short of the $20,000 prize. “It was definitely last-minute,” said Owens. “We didn’t know what we were going to do. I actually forgot about this race here, then I was like, Maybe we can capitalize on $20,000-to-win. Ownes added, “the car was really great tonight. We probably just went a little too hard, too early. We had a pretty good car at the end, but not as good as Brandon’s. Hats off to him; he had a great weekend.” Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV, finished third after making the long haul to Virginia for the King of the Commonwealth. Richards held second twice, both times battling Smith for the lead but couldn’t get by to take the top spot. “I drove 985 miles to get here. I just can’t thank these guys enough. I hadn’t been here in 10 years. We had a pretty good car there. I was hoping to get by G.R. [Smith] earlier; we might have been able to ride it out a little bit. I think I got my tire hot and couldn’t fire good enough on those restarts. I was next to Brandon and then Jimmy. I was able to hold on to third there.” Rounding out the top five were Tim McCreadie and Gregg Satterlee. Heats race winners were G.R. Smith, Tim McCreadie, Brandon Overton, and Josh Richards. B Main winners were Dustin Mitchell and Ross Bailes. The competitors of the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance put on what could be considered the race of the night as Carson Ferguson, Jeremey Pilkerton, Ray Love, Matt Quade, and Justin Williams battled in three and four-wide at times for the top spot. Carson Ferguson of Charlotte, NC, the 2018 FASTRAK national touring champion, held off an emotionally charged drive by Jeremy Pilkerton, who was racing with a lot of emotions after his father Jeff suffered a heart attack last weekend. For Ferguson, the opening laps were stressful as he swapped the lead with Ray Love Jr multiple times over the first ten laps. Once out front, Ferguson had to work through heavy traffic to maintain his lead over the battle for second place. The second and final caution came out with a hand full of laps giving Pilkerton another shot at the top spot. On the final restart, Ferguson would survive several challenges from Pilkerton and a hard-charging Justin Williams to secure the $3000 Virginia Is For Racing Lover King of the Commonwealth victory. His second special event victory at the pristine Virginia Motor Speedway came a little different than his first, this time having the dominant car. His first came in May of 2019 when coming to the checkers, then-leader Layton Sullivan blew his right rear tire coming to the checkers, handing the lead, and win to Ferguson. The Speedway will return to weekly racing action this coming Saturday, May 22, and host week 3 of Dirt Series Championship weekly racing action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified, and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions.

Justin Williams Scores Victory Lap Pro Late Model Win in Return to Racing at Virginia Motor Speedway; Lipscombe, McClenden, and Maxey Also Score Opening Night Victories

Jamaica, VA – After a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic Virginia Motor Speedway got back to racing with a large car count and a great crowd on hand to see Victory Lap Late Model Champion Justin Williams of Concord, VA pick up where he left off in 2019, with a win. “We have been waiting on the 2021 schedule to come out to see if I was going to take another year off from racing, we were pumped to see it come out. To get the win tonight, in front of a crowd like tonight, is amazing and exciting,” commented Williams in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Williams would sweep the outside of Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA on lap 2 to take the lead, one he would not relinquish over the remaining 33 laps. Williams would take the checkers 2. 709 seconds over Almond, followed by Jeremy Pilkerton, fast qualifier Matt Quade, and Matt Glanden. In other action Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA took home the win in dominating fashion after returning to the division after a four year absence. In the Budweiser Modified feature defending champion Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA passed Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA on lap 8 of the 25 lap feature and went on to score the win. And in the Collision One Limited Stock Car feature Brian Maxey of King George, VA returned to the division after a four year absence to take home a dominating win. A stellar field of Victory Lap Pro late Model took the green flag with defending champion Justin Williams of Concord, VA getting around Corey Almond on lap 2 to take the lead in the 35 lap feature. Williams would pull away from Almond by a little over a second. Behind the two leaders the battle for third began to heat up between fast qualifier Matt Quade, Jeremy Pilkerton, Matt Glanden, and Trevor Collins. With Williams showing the way with laps winding down, Almond worked to keep pace with Quade and Pilkerton in a tight battle for third. Quade and Pilkerton would exchange the third spot on multiple occasions before Pilkerton would claim the spot for good. Williams looked like his old self by taking the win over Almond, Pilkerton, Quade, and Glanden. After four years away from the Truckin Thunder Sportsman division, Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA picked up where he left off, by taking the win in dominating fashion. Lipscombe set fast time but was inverted back to fourth with the pill pull. It didn’t take him long to catch leader Matt Meads. On lap 5 Lipscombe pulled up to the back end of Meads and tried several times on the bottom to take the lead. On lap 7 Lipscombe shot to the outside of Meads in Turn 3 and 4 taking the lead by inches at the line. Once out front Lipscombe began pulling away from the battle for second. With 5 laps remaining Tim Shelton began his assault to the front with a pass on Kacey Gordon. Coming to the white flag Shelton got inside Meads for second but had nothing for Lipscombe who took home the win by a full straight away. Rounding out the top five where Shelton, Meads, Gordon, and Steve Causey. It took defending champion Hunter McClendon of Williamsburg, VA six laps to catch then leader Joey Polevoy of Powhatan, VA in the Budweiser Modified feature. On lap 8, while in traffic McClendon took the lead from Polevoy in heavy traffic taking over the top spot on lap 8. Once out front McClendon would pull away from the field. Behind him the battle for third on back between Bret Hamilton, Chase Polevoy, and Josh Harris. Butler would finally take over the third spot while the battle for the lead heated up. With five laps to go McClendon began racing in heavy traffic, at one point going three wide with slower traffic. That allowed Polelvoy to close the gap before getting caught up in that same lapped traffic which allowed McClendon to cruise on to the win. Rounding out the top five were Polevoy, Butler, Harris, and Lance Grady. In the Collision One Limited Stock Car 25 lap feature fast qualifier Brian Maxey started sixth with the pill pull, it only took him 2 laps to get to the front, taking the lead from Trent Clemons with an outside pass in turn 3. Once out front Maxey began to pull away from the battle for second on back. Johnny Brooks, Trent Clemons, and Ryan Hutchens all took turns at running second behind Maxey. With the laps winding down the only thing to slow Maxey were three cautions that closed the field on his back bumper for a brief moment. Maxey would go on to take home a dominating win in his return to the division after a four year absence. Rounding out the top five were Givens, Cory Bradley, Ryan Hutchens, and Trent Clemons.
