O’Neal Is $53,000 World 100 Rocket

ROSSBURG, Ohio — For many years before strapping into a race car of his own, Hudson O’Neal came to Eldora Speedway and watched his father, Don O’Neal, compete in the world’s most prestigious dirt late model race and come up empty-handed. “It just shows the passion that they take in what they do and how long they’ve been coming here, trying to win this race,” O’Neal said. Try as he may, however, Davenport was unable to catch O’Neal. “He just got up there and got a little bit more that I didn’t know was there,” Davenport said. “[O’Neal] and one or two others are the best at running the fence. Davenport had taken the lead from O’Neal on lap 52 after a restart, slipping underneath him into turn one and driving off with the spot. “I was running pretty hard and wasn’t pulling away from [O’Neal] any,” Davenport said.
