It’s All Davenport In $10,000 Wheatland Score

— Jonathan Davenport is considered the king of late model dirt racing these days and his dominant performance on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway did nothing to dispel that notion. “Last night we just got behind in qualifying,” said Davenport, who swept Saturday’s action as he set fast qualifying lap and won his heat race in addition to wiring the feature field. Reigning MLRA Series champ Chad Simpson finished second, 2.9 seconds behind Davenport. Davenport sprinted to the lead and already was passing lapped cars, just six laps into the race. He was 3.6 seconds clear of Simpson with Garrett Alberson another two seconds behind the runner-up by lap 25. From that point on, it was all about handling lapped traffic and Davenport did so in expert fashion. Even as Simpson gradually cut into the lead over the final 10 laps, Davenport’s lead was never in doubt.
