O’Neal, Davenport Claim North/South 100 Preliminaries

UNION, Ky. – Hudson O’Neal and Jonathan Davenport captured Friday night’s Sunoco North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil preliminary feature wins at Florence Speedway. O’Neal held off a furious last-lap charge from Earl Pearson Jr. to win the first 25-lap main event of the night. O’Neal jumped to the point at the start of the first 25-lap race before the caution waved with just one lapped scored. On the restart, O’Neal led Marlar and Pearson for two more circuits until Pearson moved by Marlar for the second spot. A restart with five laps to go still saw O’Neal pacing the field with Pearson using the middle line on the racetrack, closing on the back of O’Neal’s car with just a few laps remaining. “We got through lapped traffic pretty good there, so that’s a good thing,” Davenport said.
