Josh Berry Banks Big in CARS TOUR Return at Orange County

posted in: News 0

Mooresville, NC 4/26/21 – Josh Berry made the most out his CARS Tour return Sunday afternoon to win the Puryear Tank Lines “Old North State Nationals” pres. by GXS Wraps at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, North Carolina.

 

The veteran Deac McCaskill, who had a shot at the win, finished second. Tyler Matthews finished third, making it back-to-back podium finishes, dating back to his last outing with the series at Hickory on March 20th.

 

Berry used strategy to gain track position on lap 46 choosing to stay out when many of the other competitors chose to pit. Despite being at the lead point for 153 of the 200 laps Berry had to hold of multiple charges from McCaskill.

 

Berry’s win made it back-to-back $30,000 paydays after winning last year’s edition held at South Carolina’s Greenville-Pickens Speedway. The win was number twenty in his career, twelve more than the second closest competitor. The big payday also pushed Berry’s career earnings to over $214,000, which is again best all time in series history.

 

Bobby McCarty came away with a 6th place finish and will take command of the championship points lead over rookie Sam Butler who’s misfortunes left him with a disappointing last place finish Sunday afternoon.
