Seay Wins Second Straight iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Round at Williams Grove

If one thing’s become clear over the first four rounds of the 2022 iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series, it’s that it’ll take some pretty flawless driving for anyone to deny Evan Seay this year’s title.

After back-to-back runner-up finishes to start the season, Seay now has back-to-back victories under his belt after Monday night’s triumph at Williams Grove Speedway. Already the points leader coming into the race, the first repeat winner of the 2022 season now has a 37-point advantage over Kendal Tucker entering the halfway point of the campaign thanks to his continued consistency.

Monday night’s win resembled the opening round at Fairbury Speedway more than Seay’s Eldora victory, though; instead of taking the lead late after contact with another car, he started from the front row and dominated the race from there. This time, though, the late caution flags that bunched the field up weren’t enough to change the leader in the closing laps as Seay hung on in the final two-lap dash to beat Dylan Wilson and Tucker to podium placements.

It was a tale of two races for Monday night’s heat winners, with Seay and Tucker joined by James Edens and Travis St. Clair as first place finishers in the preliminary rounds. Both Edens and St. Clair would maintain top-five positions early, slide to the edge of the top 10 as the race went on, and end up in incidents within the final 10 laps to settle for 16th and 17th, respectively. On the contrary, six different drivers gained six spots or more in the 50-lap feature, with Felix Roy jumping from 11th to fourth and Drew Hopkins jumping nine spots from 19th on the grid to crack the top 10. Cedar Lake winner and 2019 series champion Blake Matjoulis would finish fifth to maintain third in points, while 2020 champion and Fairbury winner Hayden Cardwell missed his second feature of the season after finishing last in his heat and seventh in the C-main.
