For another preliminary night on Friday, Overton squeezed into the feature with a third-place finish in his heat before finishing 18th in the 35-lapper.
On Saturday, Brandon’s second-place showing in his heat positioned him on the fourth row for the $25,000-to-win World Finals finale. He was an early retiree on lap 33 while running 11th.
