Brandon Overton Rallies to National 100 Repeat Victory
Pockets $30,000 for his 14th Win of the 2022 Season

EVANS, Ga. (10/31/22) – Brandon Overton overcame a flat tire to rally to the $30,000 victory in Saturday evening’s 48th annual National 100 finale aboard his Wells & Sons Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton / Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells Motorsports/ Clements Racing Engines - powered Super Late Model.

The win marked his 14th of the 2022 season and his second-straight National 100 title.

“They made me work for it,” said Overton, who led laps 1-9 and 22-23 before stopping in turn three with a flat tire. “We had to go back to the back, stay out of the wrecks, and man, our (Wells Motorsports Longhorn) car was just … I’ve had a good one here before, but this one tops it. It would drive right around there like a go-kart.

“Hat’s off to my crew, they busted their butt all weekend working on this thing. They made my job easy.”

Friday night found Brandon Overton and the Wells Motorsports team in action at East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Ala.) for the 48th annual National 100.

Drawing 23 Late Models for the two-day event, Brandon laid down the fastest lap in time trials before placing first in his heat race.

Rolling off from the pole for Saturday’s National 100, Overton shot out to an early race lead before a flat left-rear tire dropped him to the tail on lap 23. Wasting no time working his way back to the front, Brandon tracked down his brother Cody for the lead on lap 54 and led the remainder of the 100-lapper to secure his second consecutive National 100 victory and 14th of the 2022 campaign.

He pocketed a $30,000 payday ahead of Tyler Erb, Joseph Joiner, Wil Herrington, and J.R. Moseley.

Austin Horton Stays Hot with EAMS National 100 Limited Late Model Victory
Senoia Raceway’s Peach State Classic Next on the Schedule

NEWNAN, Ga. (10/31/22) – Weekend action found Austin Horton once again visiting Victory Lane aboard his Franklin Enterprises / Orr’s Towing No. 16 Super K Express / XR1 Rocket Chassis entries.

His latest voyage to the Winner’s Circle came on Saturday afternoon during the Limited Late Model portion of the 48th annual National 100 at East Alabama Motor Speedway.

“We didn’t have the weekend we wanted in the Super Late Model or the Crate Late Model, but the Limited Late Model was flawless. We qualified on the pole and then led all 40 laps to get the $5,000 win,” Horton noted. “We’ve got a lot of momentum in our corner as we head into the Peach State Classic at Senoia (Raceway) in a couple of week, so we are excited for that.”

Austin Horton invaded East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phoenix City, Ala.) on Friday afternoon to compete in three divisions for the 48th annual National 100 weekend.

With prelims on Friday setting the grid for Saturday’s features, Horton raced his way into the $30,000-to-win Super Late Model main event with a heat race victory. Starting on the front row, Austin unfortunately battled issues throughout the 100-lapper that ultimately led to an early exit. He was credited with a 19th-place finish.
Despite more problems in the 604 Crate Late Model ranks that sidelined him early in the feature to a 20th-place finish, Austin followed up the fastest lap in Limited Late Model time trials with a flag-to-flag victory in Saturday’s A-Main.

He claimed his ninth win of the season and $5,000 payday ahead of Dusty Jones, Chad Wallace, Thomas Lewis, and Monte Vaughn.

Full results from the weekend are available at .

Next up for Horton will be a trip to Senoia (Ga.) Raceway on November 11-12 for the second annual Peach State Classic, which is headlined by a $20,000-to-win Super Late Model event on Friday evening and a $53,053-to-win finale on Saturday night.

Both events are sanctioned by the Castrol FloRacing Night in America miniseries.

Dereck Ramirez Takes $10,000 USMTS Payday at Lakeside
Finishes Fourth in Final USMTS Championship Standings

WOODWARD, Okla. (10/31/22) – Dereck Ramirez earned his seventh win of the 2022 season on Friday night behind the wheel of his S&S Fishing & Rentals No. 4R Koda Services/ Boom-Test Well Service/ Raw Truck Wash/ Hughes Racing Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engine Modified.

The victory at Lakeside Speedway was worth $10,000 and marked his seventh triumph of the year. The Oklahoma racer claimed the victory in thrilling fashion with a last-lap pass of Terry Phillips amidst lapped traffic to snare the win.

“I don’t think there’s any conserving on a racetrack like that. That’s pretty demanding,” Ramirez shared in Victory Lane following the non-stop 40-lapper. “I’m 36. I feel like I’m 85. I can’t breathe very well… I just got him (Terry Phillips) in lapped traffic there. I don’t think I would have had a chance if he hadn’t got in there. When he got back by me I said, ‘You know what, I’m going to drive this thing wide open and if it doesn’t turn I guess I’ll knock the wall down.’ Everything worked out.

“He kind of got out there on me. I wasn’t going to tear my stuff up and then I kind of started coming back to him when I hit that bottom pretty good and I thought we might as well just try her and I moved up to the middle and there was a lot of moisture there I didn’t know and it just worked out”

Dereck Ramirez returned to the road with the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) on Thursday evening at Tri-State Speedway (Pocola, Okla.) for the inaugural King of the Ring presented by Wrisco.

With a third-to-second run in his heat race placing him on the front row for the opening night feature, Ramirez faded one spot after a mid-race restart to finish third. He followed race-long pacesetter Dan Ebert and Terry Phillips to the checkers.

For Friday’s Kansas City Sizzler at Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kan.), Dereck qualified third-fastest in his group before placing second in his heat race.

After leading the opening five circuits of the feature, Ramirez tracked down late leader Terry Phillips with two laps remaining and went on to capture his seventh win of the season and a $10,000 prize.

His 25th-career USMTS triumph came ahead of Phillips, Jacob Bleess, Tyler Wolff, and Jason Hughes.

On Saturday afternoon at 81 Speedway (Park City, Kan.), Ramirez secured his spot into the USMTS finale with a runner-up finish in his heat.

With $10,000 on the line in the finale, Dereck ran in the top-five early but lost powering steering on lap 26 that sidelined him for the remainder of the 40-lapper. He was credited with a 15th-place finish

Dereck finished fourth in the final USMTS point standings.

Full results from the weekend plus the complete final standings can be found at .

Dereck’s 2022 season is now officially complete. He’s already looking ahead to the 2023 campaign, which will begin with six events during the January 7-15 span at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park. The 17th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout includes four $2,000-to-win events for the Modified division along with two $1,000-to-win programs.

Matt Henderson and CVR Race Cars Amicably Part Ways
Tennessee Racer Evaluating Future Options

LOUDON, Tenn. (10/31/22) – Matt Henderson’s partnership with CVR Race Cars has drawn to a close. Due to health reasons for team owner Chip Vineyard as well as financial strains with the increasing cost of racing, the CVR house car team has been halted for the time being. 

“I’m not sure how long they’re (CVR House Car team) gonna be out of the sport but if/when they come back, if they want to go racing, they can call me, I’d be happy to pick up where we left off,” Henderson noted. “As for now, I’m talking with a few teams about what I’d like to do in the future, but nothing is in concrete. You have to have something where the team gels and everyone is a good fit, and you must do your homework to try and find that early on. If you lose that, your results will show it. I just want to put myself in the right situation.

“I feel like CVR and myself proved what we were capable of when we were hitting on all cylinders, and now I’m ready to see what’s next. It has been an amicable transition out of the ride, which is good because sometimes these things can get messy when they wind down, but I’m still great friends with everyone and wish them the best. Additionally, I’ll continue to talk to any CVR customers, who might need my help on setup stuff as their night unfolds.”

Racing has seen drastic cost increases over the past two years. A sport that is already known for being expensive to compete has seen products such as tires, fuel, and other commodities jump up as much as 40%. That makes it a steep mountain for any team to climb, and the CVR House Car team was not immune to these challenges.

The 2021 campaign was a banner year for CVR Race Cars and its house car program. In fact, during the team’s 14-month run with Henderson at the wheel they collected 19 feature wins, including a weekend sweep of the 2021 King of Crates at North Alabama Speedway and a $20,000 victory in the 2021 Crate Racin’ USA Chevrolet World Championship at Georgia’s Cochran Motor Speedway.

Despite their overwhelming success the team has still faced the strains it takes to compete weekly. 

“Even though our house car team was successful in 2021, the time it takes to get to and from the races and maintain a winning capable car in the shop is more than we needed on our plate currently,” commented CVR Race Cars Chip Vineyard. “With the CVR Race Cars business being wide open and needing to float cars through as quick as possible so I can prepare for my shoulder surgery, it just made sense to put a hold on the house car program for the time being. We wish Matt the best and appreciate all he has done at CVR and with the house car team.”

Future plans for Matt Henderson will be released once they are confirmed. Please regularly point your browser to for the latest updates.
