Jonathan Davenport Succumbs to Rear End Issues in Scorcher...
(August 18, 2017)
"Superman" Jonathan Davenport was back behind the wheel of G.R. Smith's #49 XR1 Rocket machine on Thursday evening, August 17 at the ultra-fast Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee for the 13th edition of the 'Scorcher.' The Ultimate Super Late Model Series sanctioned the single day showdown in the Volunteer State and 30 competitors signed in at "The Gap" to vie for the $10,000 winner's check. Jonathan timed in fifth fastest in his group during qualifying and ran sixth in his heat race prior to scoring the victory in his B-Main. After starting the 50-lap main event from the inside of the ninth row, JD unfortunately was forced to retire from rear-end issues after only twenty-two circuits and was relegated to seventeenth at the pay window.

Davenport Climbs Inside Top Ten in $50k North/South 100
(August 13, 2017)
Jonathan Davenport and the #49 team drove through the pit gate at the venerable Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky on August 10-12 for a pair of lucrative Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series showdowns. Things started at the undersized 1/2-mile speedplant on Thursday evening with the 'North/South Shootout,' which paid $10,000 to the winner. Jonathan timed in twenty-second fastest in Group B during the qualifying session prior to running sixth in both his stacked heat race and his B-Main. JD unfortunately was unable to transfer into the 50-lap feature event, which was eventually won by Jimmy Owens.

On Friday night, preliminary action for the 35th Annual 'North/South 100' kicked off at the Cincinnati-area venue with a double set of qualifying heat races. Jonathan won his first heat race of the evening before finishing sixth in his final prelim. By virtue of accumulating the fifteenth most passing points, the Blairsville, Georgia star rolled off from the inside of the eighth row in Saturday's $50,000 to win headliner. Jonathan then quickly blasted up inside of the top ten, but a run-in with another competitor caused front end damage and he eventually settled for a solid ninth place performance in the 100-lap grind.

Superman Scores Pair of Wins in G.R. Smith's Ride!
(August 7, 2017)
Jonathan Davenport went two-for-two in the win column on August 5-6 behind the wheel of G.R. Smith's #49 XR1 Rocket racecar in special events in West Virginia and Pennsylvania! On Saturday night at Elkins Raceway in Kerens, West Virginia, Jonathan won his heat race in preliminary action and later started the annual 'Red Frederick Memorial' from the outside of the front row. After leading all 52 circuits in the unsanctioned headliner, JD and Smith's team celebrated the $5,200 victory over Russell Erwin, Shane Hitt, Mason Zeigler, and Billy Holbert!

The 'Jim Dunn Memorial' at Midway (OH) Speedway was washed out early in the day on Sunday, so the team hustled to Dog Hollow Speedway in Strongstown, Pennsylvania for the 'Shawn McGarvey Memorial.' Problems with the liftgate on the transporter forced Jonathan to miss his heat race, but he later transferred from the tail of his B-Main into the 45-lap feature event. The Blairsville, Georgia star then rolled off twenty-first on the grid in the unsanctioned race and blitzed through the field to grab the top spot on the 25th circuit. Jonathan then beat Kyle Hardy, Michael Lake, Alex Ferree, and Robbie Black to the finish line to bag the $4,000 windfall.
