Overton bags seventh win of 2022 at EAMS, nets $10,053
Saturday night found Brandon Overton banking his seventh win of the 2022 campaign. His latest voyage to Victory Lane came in Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series action at East Alabama Motor Speedway in his No. 76 Crossfit Overton / Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells Motorsports/ Clements Racing Engines Inc.-powered Super Late Model.
"Hats off to everybody at EAMS, you know I love racing here,” Overton shared in Victory Lane. “If they wouldn't have done that (worked the track surface), the first 20 laps would've been no good. I think everybody back here knows how good this racetrack is, so we just want to see it do its best.
“I got to the lead there just before halfway and after that I was able to stay out front and get the win. This Wells Motorsports team gives me a great car every night, and I’m just the lucky guy who gets to drive it."

After wrestling away the lead from polesitter Tim McCreadie on lap 19, Brandon held off a late-charge from Ashton Winger to claim his seventh win of the season and a $10,053 prize.
Winger, Michael Page, Garrett Smith, and Carson Ferguson trailed him to the checkers in the 53-lapper.
