The K&L Rumley team celebrates the Carolina Clash victory.
What won the race: In a race with a spate of flat tires, polesitter Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., dominated a caution-plagued 40-lapper, leading every lap for a $4,000 victory.
Quotable: “I could set my own pace there. I tried to run the pace that I needed to run to make the whole 40 laps. I didn’t think (tire wear) was going to be that big of an issue, but about lap 10, you know, the rubber started coming. And I was like 'Oh no.' Then I started just driving off the right front and slowed the pace down."
Key notes: Brandon Overton of Appling, Ga., came back from a flat tire to finish second. ... Davenport previously won the tour's season-opening Skyler Trull Memorial at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C. on March 15 and has seven career Carolina Clash victories; he originally intended to skip the race in favor of Smoky Mountain Speedway's Spring Nationals event, but a hauler breakdown on the interstate forced a change of plans. ... Davenport was quickest in time trials by over three-tenths of a second. ... The top ten qualifiers were locked in the main event; remaining drivers ran consolation races to secure feature starting spots. ... The feature took roughly an hour to complete. ... Saturday's event honored 2001 Carolina Clash champion Ed Gibbons, who died in an automobile accident Feb. 1, 2009. ... The tour made its 54th overall visit to Fayetteville and its first of four this season.
On the move: Kyle Pierce of Statesville, N.C., climbed from 12th to round out the podium.
Winner's sponsors: Davenport's Kevin and Lee Roy Rumley-owned Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Clements/Rumley engine with sponsorship from AES Racing, CV Racing Products, Dirtwrap, Hoosier Racing Tire, JRi Shocks, Mega Plumbing and VP Race Fuels.
Points chase: Davenport has 72 points to lead the series (although he's not expected to follow it full time) while Overton is in second with 68. They're followed by Kyle Pierce (64), Scott Shirey (61) and Anthony Sanders (57).
