Thornton Keeps Rolling With Pittsburgher Romp

IMPERIAL, Pa. — Ricky Thornton Jr. survived a back-and-forth battle between himself and Jonathan Davenport to earn his second Pittsburgher win in the last three years on Saturday night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. After the race restart Thornton would grab the lead for the first time in the race on lap 14. Thornton would hold the point until lap 37 when Davenport passed him for the race lead. Davenport was opening up his lead until a caution appeared with 47 laps scored. Thornton was slowly reeling in Davenport as the two raced through heavy traffic. Davenport, who seeking his first career win in the Pittsburgher would fade to eighth at the finish despite leading a race-high 34 laps. After getting by Davenport, Moran would run in the second spot for the final three laps of the race — trailing Thornton by 2.215 seconds at the finish.
