Davenport Banks 53,000 Silver Dollars

— Jonathan Davenport became the first three-time winner of the Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals on Sunday night, as he captured the 80-lap $53,000-to-win event at I-80 Speedway. Davenport, who started seventh in the field charged to the lead on lap 74 around Tim McCreadie, who led the race for the first 73 circuits. Earl Pearson Jr. ran as high as third in the race but finished in fifth. The first of three caution flags during the race came on lap 48. After the last caution of the race with 20 laps remaining Davenport was third and by lap-62 he had moved by Marlar for second after battling with Moran for several laps. Davenport slowly reeled in McCreadie as McCreadie was having to deal with heavy lapped traffic, closing the gap. With six laps to go Davenport was able to take over the race lead which he held to the finish.
