MARYVILLE, Tenn. ( July 27) Finishing second at Crossville was the sixth top five finish in seven Southern Nationals event for Casey and enabled him to hold on to the series point lead.
Casey was second quick in the first qualifying group and started third on the grid. He moved past Michael Chilton for the lead on the eighth circuit, but the lead was short lived as Brandon Overton took the lead on lap 10 and went on to win the event.
“The track, the car and Casey were all about racing. The first 10 laps of the race was a real crowd pleaser with Casey, Brandon (Overton) and Michael (Chilton) all slicing and dicing,” said David. “We went with soft tires and maybe should have gone hard, but we were good enough to finish second.”
On Tuesday night for the sixth race in this years 10 race Southern Nationals Series at Boyd’s Speedway Casey won the first heat and started 11th on the field. He was able to gain a couple of positions and notched an eighth place victory.
“We over adjusted the car and it was too tight,” said Davod “It wasn’t a good night or a bad night. It was just one of those nights.”
Two series races remain, tonight at Smoky Mountain Speedway and the finale at Tazewell Speedway on Saturday night. Casey, who still leads the point race over Dale McDowell, is looking to maintain his consistency and hopefully parlay that into a win.
Tommy coming off a win in his last outing at Smoky Mountain is primed and ready to go as he hopes to pick up his second win of the season tonight.
