Jonathan Davenport added $5,000 to his cofers Friday at Batesville.
What won the race: Continuing his winning ways, Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., led all 30 laps to win Friday’s Topless 100 preliminary feature for a $5,000 payday and the pole position for Saturday's $50,000-to-win finale. Davenport, still searching for his first career Topless 100 victory, finished 0.718 of a second ahead of fellow front-row starter Spencer Hughes. Three-time Topless 100 winner Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tenn., finished third in a race slowed by a single caution.
Quotable: “It was a very good view from where I was sitting at tonight,” Davenport said. “Who knows if it is going to be a tire game tomorrow night (in the 100-lap finale). This race kind of surprised us last year with how slick it got. We will have to conserve a little bit tomorrow night. Tonight I just backed the pace way, way up.”
Key notes: Davenport recorded his fifth Lucas Oil Series win of 2022 and the 63rd of his career. ... Runner-up Spencer Hughes registered a season- and career-best finish on the Lucas Oil Series. ... The race's lone caution flag flew on lap eight for Daulton Wilson. ... The 30th annual Comp Cams Topless 100 co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Comp Cams Super Dirt Series at Batesville (Ark.) Motor Speedway kicked off Friday with a preliminary program leading into Saturday's $50,000-to-win crown jewel, which is a record winner's share for the special event requiring drivers to race without a roof. ... The top 16 in points after Friday locked into Saturday's main event; the remaining drivers will run consolation races. ... Last year saw Hudson O'Neal win his first Topless 100 over Jonathan Davenport in a thrilling finish.
On the move: Garrett Alberson of Las Cruces, N.M., started 16th and finished 10th.
Winner's sponsors: Davenport’s Double L Motorsports Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions, ASC Warranty, Spartan Mowers, Lucas Oil, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, VP Racing Fuels, Bilstein, Hoosier Racing Tire, Midwest Sheet Metal and K1 RaceGear.
Points chase: Before Batesville: 1. Tim McCreadie (5,850); 2. Brandon Sheppard (5,650); 3. Ricky Thornton Jr. (5,510); 4. Hudson O'Neal (5,265); 5. Tyler Erb (5,240); 6. Earl Pearson Jr. (5,150); 7. Garrett Alberson (4,710); 8. Daulton Wilson (4,460); 9. Spencer Hughes (4,420); 10. Jimmy Owens (4,235); 11. Ross Robinson (4,150).
