Front End Suspension Woes Fail Davenport at Gastonia...
(March 12, 2017)
After starting out their weekend at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee where Jonathan Davenport earned the fifth starting spot for the $15,000 to win 'Tennessee Tipoff Classic' before snow showers postponed the 75-lap headliner, the #49 team wound up at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina on Saturday evening, March 11. Jonathan, who showed up late to the track after traveling from the Volunteer State, missed qualifying prior to advancing up to third in his consolation event. After starting the annual 'Skyler Trull Memorial' from the outside of the seventh row, JD folded his nose under on a couple of different occasions during the rough-and-tumble 40-lap Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series-sanctioned feature. The Blairsville, Georgia standout eventually retired from the $5,000 to win affair due to front end suspension issues and was relegated to a sixteenth place performance.
