NEW PAINT SCHEME FOR 2017!
Makes First-Ever Chili Bowl Nationals Appearance
15, 2017) Jonathan Davenport, of Blairsville, Georgia,
made his first-ever 'Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals' appearance
over the last few days at Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Driving a #49 Eagle chassis for Daum Motorsports, Jonathan battled
a tight car each time he took to the indoor track. On Thursday evening,
January 12 in his preliminary night, JD slipped back to sixth in
his heat race before winding up third in the D-Main. During Saturday's
Championship extravaganza, the popular driver known as "Superman"
won his M-Main before advancing up to fifth in his L-Main. Unfortunately,
that was one spot out of a coveted transfer position into the next
alphabet soup race and his weekend came to an abrupt end. Complete
results from the 'Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals,' which drew a
record 365 entrants and was won by Christopher Bell, can be located
online at www.chilibowl.com.
Launched for #49 Team; JD Starts Season in Tulsa!
9, 2017) Welcome to the brand-new www.JonathanDavenport.net!
Launched today by Delph Communications, Inc., the new site reflects
Jonathan Davenport's switch back to the #49 Barry Wright House Car
and reveals his 2017 paint scheme and marketing partners. The popular
driver known as "Superman" will open up his '17 campaign
this week in the annual 'Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals' at Tulsa
Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Piloting a #49 Eagle chassis out
of the Daum Motorsports stable, JD will compete in his preliminary
night on Thursday, January 12 before returning to hunt for the Golden
Driller during Saturday's Championship Night.
The Super Late Model portion of his schedule will
then start on February 10-11 at Golden Isles Speedway near Brunswick,
Georgia. As it stands now, the pair of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt
Series events during the 'Super Bowl of Racing' will be the only
two "Speedweeks" shows that the BWRC House Car team will
enter in 2017. From there, the newly-formed team plans to compete
in a diversified schedule that includes high-paying programs throughout
the Southeast, as well as crown jewel spectaculars across the country.
