“I was about to run third. I couldn’t get back around Jordy (Nipper),” said Overton. “I chose the bottom on the restart and Jordy got me on the top and I was like, ‘Damn, I’m gonna be stuck for a little bit.’ I seen it kinda rubbering up around the top and I knew I had to hurry up and get back up there. Thankfully everything worked out, and we got the win.”
