TAMPA, FL (January 29, 2021) – Current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Championship Point Leader Brandon Overton picked up his first win of the season on Friday Night at East Bay Raceway Park. Overton grabbed the lead from Tim McCreadie on the 27th lap and went on to claim his eighth career series win. A spirited battle for the lead consumed over half the race with more than five different race leaders.


Tyler Bruening started 11th and charged to second at the finish for his best career LOLMDS finish.  McCreadie came home in third followed by 21st starting Devin Moran, and Shane Clanton.


Brian Shirley started on the pole and led the first eight laps until Jimmy Owens took over the lead, but a few laps later Shirley regained the point. Shirley stayed in front until lap 26 when Mike Marlar took over the lead. Marlar’s lead was short-lived as he held the lead for just one circuit until McCreadie charged ahead after a restart. McCreadie could not hold off Overton who charged around him with 22 laps to go.


Overton, in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the fourth time, became the sixth different winner in six LOLMDS events in 2021. “After the heat race, I said this one is going to require a lot of luck. I got the lead at the right time. I knew if I just kept hanging around the top three that I would get a win before the end of the week. I started to feel like I was going to leave here without winning and that wasn’t going to sit well with me.”


Bruening was elated on the podium with his highest finish in LOLMDS competition. “We have been really good, but we’ve gotten tangled up in some stuff that wasn’t our doing this week. We have had some really good speed. Now it’s up to the me to put it all together as the driver, because this car is fantastic. Thanks to my dad [Greg] and Marshall Green at Capital Race Cars. I am thrilled to be up here on the podium.”


McCreadie had his best finish of the 2021 campaign as he rounded out the podium. “We have all been chasing our tails all week and we’ve just been behind in our plans. We had a good run tonight, so that’s cool. We just need to be a bit better.” 


The winner’s Wells Motorsports Longhorn Chassis is powered by Clements Racing Engines and is sponsored by Allstar Concrete, Crossfit Overton, Garnto Southern, EZGO, Big Dog Stump and Tree, R.W. Powell Construction, Hurst Construction, Dirt Mafia, Clean Way Clearing and Grading, and ATC Site Construction.


Completing the top ten were Mark Whitener, Hudson O’Neal,  Earl Pearson Jr., Billy Moyer, Jr., and Josh Richards.
