What won the race: Subbing for long-time friend Donald Bradsher in his No. 93, Jonathan Davenport led all the way in Thursday's Tar Heel 53 at Tri-County Racetrack for a $4,500 payday. Davenport earned $3,500 in purse money in the Southern Nationals Bonus Series event and another $1,000 for capturing a bounty on runner-up Casey Roberts, who started on the pole and ran second every lap.
Quotable: "This is great coming back home. Love to see all ya'll fans. Everybody's growed up since I've been here about five years ago. I hardly recognize anybody," said Davenport, who began his dirt racing career in Tri-County's four-cylinder division. "I just feel the support from the fans. This is awesome."
Key notes: Davenport won the Tar Heel 53 for the second time. ... The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series champ notched his 21st overall feature victory of 2015. ... He took the checkers 1.413 seconds ahead of Roberts. ... Eight drivers completed 53 laps in a feature with five caution flags, none for serious incidents (George Mashburn spun on lap 13 and Ashton Winger got into the turn-two wall on lap 49, among them). ... Thursday's race at the Ray Cook-promoted oval was originally set for Oct. 2 before Hurricane Joaquin pushed it back four weeks. ... The SNBS has had 10 winners in as many races this season. ... Johnny Chastain scratched from the main event. ... Thursday's action was sponsored by Rick’s Rental and presented by Jacky Jones Automotive Group and Hogsed’s Sports Wear.
Winner's sponsors: Davenport drove a Paylor Motorsports Longhorn Chassis sponsored by Mega Plumbing, Mega Electrical Services and Bobby Taylor Oil Co.
Points chase: David Payne has 1,790 points after Tri-County for a commanding lead on Tommy Bailey (1,292).
