Davenport Banks $35,000 At WVMS

MINERAL WELLS, W. Va. — Jonathan Davenport continued his winning ways in big-money late model competition, topping Saturday night’s Historic 100 Weekend finale before a standing-room-only crowd at West Virginia Motor Speedway.

Davenport, who picked up big paydays at Bristol Motor Speedway and Tazewell Speedway earlier this season, earned $25,000 for the victory. That combined with $10,000 for his triumph in Friday’s preliminary feature, made it a $35,000 weekend for the Georgia late model pilot.

Davenport started sixth and led the final 16 laps of the five-eighths-mile dirt track, which reopened earlier this year. He put his No. 49 into the lead when racelong leader Devin Moran cut a tire with 34 laps in the books.

From there, Davenport held off Gregg Satterlee for the victory. Moran stormed back through the field to finish third.

Tyler Erb and Matt Spoonaugle rounded out the top five.

The finish:

Jonathan Davenport, Gregg Satterlee, Devin Moran, Tyler Erb, Matt Spoonaugle, Ed Shuman, Wayne Francis, Ryan Cline, George Klintworth, Rod Conley, Robbie Bostic, Scott Bloomquist, Matt Altiers, Dustin Smith, G.R. Smith, Adam Tonkin, Corey Conley, Dustin Sprouse, Greg Flinn, Dave Hilton.
