Top-10 finish in Prairie Dirt Classic at FALS
Wells Motorsports pilot Brandon Overton visited Davenport Speedway (Davenport, Iowa) on Tuesday afternoon to do battle with the MARS Racing Series for the Hoker 50. With a heat race victory placing him third on the starting grid for the $10,000-to-win A-Main, Overton slipped up early in the race but a late-charge in the waning laps saw him cross the line in a photo-finish with leader Hudson O’Neal. He followed 0.026 seconds behind O’Neal with Bobby Pierce, Brian Shirley, and Garrett Alberson rounding out the Top-5. (Josh James Artwork)
