Davenport Decimates Lucas Oil Buckeye Spring 50 at Atomic Speedway



by Scott Wolfe
ALMA, OH (March 20) – Jonathan Davenport led every lap of a fast and furious Buckeye Spring 50 on Friday Night at Atomic Speedway.  With the win Davenport takes over the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series points lead heading to Brownstown Speedway on Saturday Night.

A packed house of fans anxious to end the long winter months got their first fill of a hot summer when several cars were at or under the track record in hot laps.  The very first qualifier out of the gate, Davenport broke the four year old record held by Ben Adkins of 13:377.  By the time qualifications ended, the superior racing surface played host to 14 cars that eclipsed Adkins' mark, and seven cars broke into the 12-second barrier.  Jimmy Owens left as the new track record holder with an impressive time of 12:748.

Davenport consistently turned laps faster than the old track record amid heavy traffic throughout the feature, pacing the field with a 13:299 on lap 39.  The tacky track surface provided great door-to-door racing for the duration of the event.

Josh Richards briefly took the lead from Davenport on a restart, but Davenport quickly shot back around him re-taking the lead.  Richards came home in second followed by 17th starting Mason Zeigler, Chris Brown, and Jimmy Owens.



“The car was unbelievable all night long, we found a few things wrong after qualifying.  We were just on spot in the heat and feature.  The track was extremely fast and hooked-up.  It is a great feeling to have a car that handled like that the entire race.  The only thing we really tore up was the right front flair, but we will get that fixed and get ready for Brownstown tomorrow night.”

“I can’t thank Kevin and Le Roy Rumley enough for what they have done for me.  I have very rarely won north of the Mason-Dixon line, so to come here and win feels real good.  When Josh went by me on that one restart, I just got up on the wheel and was able to get back under him.”

Davenport, who started on the pole, was in lapped traffic only five laps into the race as he was setting a blistering pace.  At times to show how dominant Davenport was he was a full second faster than anyone else, several times during the race.

“We have added some new sponsors this year in Sundance Services and Sundance Flowback Well testing out of Texas.  I want to thank TS Crane Service and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas as well.  It’s going to great to go to Brownstown tomorrow night sporting that Midwest Sheet Metal orange spoiler.  That means we are leading the points, that’s great.”

Richards was pleased with his second place finish as his good start to the year continued.  “Jonathan was so fast tonight.  I lost track of him several times out there.  Having not raced much last year, and to come here when it’s hooked up, I think I need to get back in the gym and work out some more.  I want to thank Valvoline and Seubert Calf Ranches.  We are coming to Brownstown tomorrow night, and try and get the win there.”



Zeigler charged through the field to take third at the finish put on a show for the huge crowd on hand.  “We have only been here once, and it was rained out.  Wow what a racetrack and race that was.  I hoped the crowd enjoyed that one.  We were just biding our time out there and then all of sudden we had those restarts and we were in the top five.  To have Longhorn Chassis finish first and third in this stout field that is something.”

Completing the top ten were Steve Francis, Devin Moran, Dennis Erb Jr., Don O’Neal, and Dustin Linville.
