Evan Seay won the battle, but Hayden Cardwell is $10,000 richer after winning the war in last night’s iRacing World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model World Championship finale from The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Cardwell fought his way up through the pack in the deciding feature race, eventually getting past Dylan Wilson after the two made contact in a battle where the series title would go to the higher finisher.

“Words can’t explain how excited I am right now,” said Cardwell, who finished second. “We saved the best for last, and I think this race right here was the best race of the season. To come home $10,000 richer just doesn’t sound right to me—I can’t believe we did it.”

All five drivers who entered the night with a mathematical shot at the championship were crammed into two of the three heats, with Seay beating Kendal Tucker and Cardwell in the first and Devon Morgan beating Wilson in the second. That meant that Wilson would line up fifth and Cardwell seventh in the main event, with both far up enough in the pack that Morgan and Tucker would need either to falter heavily to get back in the title race and Seay mathematically eliminated in the heats.

Seay had checked out on the field before Zack McSwain’s spin caused the first of three cautions on the night. Although nobody had anything for him for the win, even after the restarts, they kept Cardwell and Wilson close throughout the night. Cardwell managed to lead one lap during the race, but it wasn’t until Lap 31 that he was scored ahead of Wilson for good.

Wilson, on the other hand, was left to reflect on second place, having fallen just four points short of ultimate glory. Although he managed a third place finish, he ended the year frustrated with the contact with Cardwell, and wondering what might have been.

“There were a few points in the year where, if things went my way, it would’ve been a different story,” Wilson lamented. “Tonight, (Cardwell) was out for blood. He doored someone in the heat race, doored me twice, killed my racecar and drove off in the sunset. I think if we had a clean race, we would’ve had something for him, but I was just hanging on at the end.”
