Overton Makes Splash in Dream Debut; Finishes on Podium in National 100
(November 7, 2016)
Randy Weaver Racing rolled into the historic East Alabama Motor Speedway on November 4-6 for the 42nd edition of the 'National 100.' For the first time, three complete shows were held at the Phenix City, Alabama venue and things kicked off with a pair of $5,000 to win preliminary programs. On Friday night, new driver Brandon Overton weighed in light following his qualifying effort, but rebounded to finish fifth in his B-Main and fifteenth in the 42-lap feature event. At EAMS on Saturday evening, Brandon clicked off the fastest lap in Group B during time trials, led the first nine circuits of the 42-lapper, and eventually wound up third in the final finishing order behind only victor Tim McCreadie and runner-up Don O'Neal.

After accumulating the sixth most points in preliminary action, Brandon started Sunday's 100-lap headliner from the outside of the third row. The Evans, Georgia standout blitzed all the way up to the second position before eventually settling for another impressive third place performance in the $20,000 to win mega-event. Brandon finished on the podium behind only race winner Dennis Erb, Jr. and runner-up Tim McCreadie. Full results from the extended 'National 100' weekend can be viewed online at www.eamsdirt.com.

Randy Weaver Tabs Brandon Overton as Full-Time Driver of #116 Dream Ride
(November 1, 2016)
Randy "Dream" Weaver and team owner Chip Stone have announced today that Appling, Georgia native Brandon Overton has been tabbed as the full-time driver of their Dream Ride effective immediately. Randy, who has been sidelined with a serious concussion since a nasty flip on April 2 during the 'Bama Bash' at East Alabama Motor Speedway, has decided to officially retire and will now hand over the steering wheel to Overton - who will ironically make his first start in the #116 Longhorn by Weaver in this weekend's 'National 100' at the same Phenix City, Alabama venue. Randy is the proud owner of 361 career feature victories, while he is also a 14-time Track Champion at various facilities across the Volunteer State of Tennessee and a 3-time Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) Champion.

"I'm not ashamed to say it, but the Lord steered me in a different direction following that flip at East Alabama and really changed the way I look at life," exclaimed Weaver earlier today via telephone. "I am getting better from the concussion, but I am still not medically cleared to race and it's just the right time to retire. I always said I wanted to win 350 races before I got to that point and I accomplished that mark last year, so now it's time to phase into the next chapter, which will include putting 100% of my efforts into growing the Outlaw Racing Southeast business and managing the race team."

"Fans will still see me at the race track, but in a different capacity helping our Longhorn by Weaver clients and of course overseeing the #116 team," he went on to say. "I can't thank all of my fans, sponsors, and crew members from throughout the years enough for all of their help and support - it was a fun ride racing for those 25+ seasons!" | MORE
