Just one race remains in the chase for $25,000 in the iRacing World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model World Championship. After Monday night’s penultimate round at Williams Grove Speedway, who takes the largest share of that prize pool is anyone’s guess.

Series rookie Devon Morgan became the second first-time series winner in a row on Monday night, dominating a caution-free 50-lap feature to further close the gap to the championship lead after a consistent season. Morgan pulled a gap of more than two seconds at race’s end over Hayden Cardwell, who regained the points lead by just two over third-place finisher Dylan Wilson.

In a perfect demonstration of the cream rising to the top, the top five drivers in points coming into the night landed the top five starting spots, with Morgan, Cardwell, Evan Seay, and Wilson winning their four heats and Knoxville winner Kendal Tucker finishing second to Morgan to start fifth. On the longest track of the season, as was the case last year, experience didn’t work to top drivers’ advantage; Austin Carr and Alex Bergeron, the first two Williams Grove race winners, had to win their respective last chance qualifiers just to get to the final.

From there, the longest race of the year went caution-free, in spite of some big incidents in the preliminary rounds. Only Wilson and Seay flipped spots from within the top five, while defending series champion Blake Matjoulis was one of the night’s biggest gainers, jumping from 12th to sixth. Only Bergeron, who converted his 18th place starting spot to a ninth place finish, was able to pass more cars in the main event.

That sets up an intense championship battle at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in two weeks’ time, with Cardwell, Wilson, Tucker, and Morgan separated by just 28 points and Seay a mathematical possibility in the event of chaos among the other four. With just three points separating each position in the final, Tucker and Morgan will need Cardwell and Wilson to have Knoxville-like struggles once again to close the gap, but if not, the higher finisher between those two will likely walk away with a $10,000 champion’s prize.
