start when the green flag waved to start the race. Marlar quickly

Beets, Garrett Smith, and Jensen Ford. That foursome raced hard
in an effort to take second place. Beets finally took second as
Hill had to fight off Ford and Smith. Smith grabbed third and
ran down Beets. Smith would take the spot and brought Ford with
him who took third from Beets. Meanwhile, Hill continued to fade
as Dakotah Knuckles took over fifth. (MRM

the 9th annual Tennessee Tipoff. The co-sanctioned race between
the Valvoline Iron Man Late Model Series and the Ultimate Super

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