Davenport Triumphs, Newman Is SRX Champion

— Jonathan Davenport, putting on a display worthy of his nickname of “Superman,” led all 90 laps to capture the Camping World SRX Thursday Night Thunder season finale in front of an estimated 8,000 roaring fans Thursday night at Lucas Oil Speedway. Several times, after caution flags, Bowyer pulled underneath Davenport but could never make the pass. Keselowski, Schrader and Newman took advantage of the situation and got around Bowyer. He had a four-car-length lead over Bowyer when caution waved on lap 12. During a lengthy green-flag run, Davenport lapped Keselowski on lap 29 as he opened a two-second lead over Bowyer. Davenport kept fending off Bowyer and was able to gradually open up some breathing room when a lap-50 caution appeared. The Davenport-Bowyer duel resumed with the green as the pair were three seconds clear of the field. But Bowyer nudged his way around the defending series champ to regain second on lap 66.
