Brandon Overton Dominant In $12,000 Tennessee Tipoff Victory At Smoky Mountain Speedway

Story By: SMOKY MOUNTAIN SPEEDWAY – MARYVILLE, TN – Brandon Overton had the field covered in winning the 9th annual Tennessee Tipoff.

The co-sanctioned race between the Valvoline Iron Man Late Model Series and the Ultimate Super Late Model Series saw 37 cars sign in trying to the win the $12,000 first place money.

But it was Overton’s night for the big money.

Cameron Marlar was the pole sitter for the race and led the first 11 laps of the race. Overton got underneath Marlar to take the lead. Several laps later, Tim McCreadie and Mike Marlar both passed the younger Marlar to take over second and third respectively.

The first 51 laps of the 60-lap race went caution free as Overton lapped up to 10th place. A lap 51 caution bunched of the field and gave McCreadie and Marlar a crack at the lead.

When the green flag waved over the field, Marlar used his low line to dive underneath Overton.

But Overton was too strong on the outside and cruised to the win. Marlar held on for second and McCreadie finished third.

Cameron Weaver and John Cobb led the field to green in the 604 late model feature. Weaver took the initial lead when the race started.

Hayden Cardwell would move into second and stalk Weaver for the lead. Cardwell eventually grabbed the lead until Weaver reclaimed the top spot one lap later. Weaver maintained a comfortable distance to win the 20-lap race.

Cardwell held off a hard charging Nick Price for second.

J.J. Garrett won the Kajun Mini Stock Association race. Garrett grabbed the early lead as the action behind him was intense.

Shannon Ethridge, John Smart, and Cody Keith were locked in a tight battle for second through much of the race. Keith eventually spun and had to go to the rear of the field.

That allowed Michael Courtney to get into the mix. Ethridge held off the others to put some pressure on Garrett in the closing laps. Garrett held on for the win over Ethridge and Smart.
