The 2019 OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Series Overton’s 400 race at Chicagoland Speedway started with Josh Robinson capturing the pole and Eddie Jones recording the fastest lap of the race. Eddie Jones gained 15 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Ed Adams led all 45 laps, with Joel Kilburn going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 1 caution with 13 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with no disconnects in a 23 car field ending with Joel Kilburn capturing his 3rd win of the season with Jim Westerfield finishing 2nd, Eddie Jones 3rd and Mike Schrader capturing 4th.
