Jonathan Davenport (116) outdueled David Payne (8) to win at Tri-County.
What won the race: Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., was successful for the second straight night aboard Randy Weaver's No. 116 Longhorn Chassis, earning a $4,000 victory on the Southern Nationals Bonus Series. Davenport overtook early leader David Payne on a restart and raced to victory.
Quotable: "I got a big run on him. I hope I gave (Payne) enough room when I slid (past) him there," Davenport said. "And he slid me back, and Donald (McIntosh) was there, we was three-wide. That was a blast there, for sure."
Key notes: The Monday event concluded a busy four-day holiday weekend stretch for Ray Cook-promoted tours after the Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals hit three Georgia tracks. ... Davenport was piloting Randy Weaver's No. 116 Longhorn Chassis for the second straight night. ... Davenport has now won all three times he has entered a race in Weaver's machine with wins coming at Senoia, Rome and Tri-County. ... Like track promoter Ray Cook, Tri-County is the track where Davenport's racing career got rolling.
