Hagrestown, MD - Jonathan Davenport drove-away from the field on Saturday night at to win the 37th Annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic. The current championship points leader became the eleventh different victor in eleven appearances by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Hagerstown Speedway.
Davenport withstood the challenges of defending track champion Kyle Lee, and Scott Bloomquist early on en route to his fourth series win of the year. Bloomquist held off numerous charges by young Tyler Bare, who was competing in only the third Super Late Model race of his career. Bare ultimately settled for third in his first career LOLMDS start. McCreadie was fourth with Rookie of the Year hopeful, Mason Zeigler completing the top five.
"Man, all the credit goes to my crew. They are awesome. Jason and Tyler do a great job, and Kevin [Rumley] is back there working all the time. This was a new car last week, so we've got two wins in three races now. It's definitely a good piece," said the 34-year-old in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.
"Thanks to Lance Landers and Steve Martin of Crop Production Services for giving me this opportunity. I was definately getting tighter and tighter at the end. The track was taking a little bit of rubber especially through three and four. Thanks to all the fans for coming out tonight. This one's for Big C [Carlton Lamm]. Everybody is still thinking about his family. It's great to win here."
Bloomquist survived a battle at the end with Bare and McCreadie to bring home another good points night. "Our car was good all night, Jonathan was really good as well. I didn't know who was driving the 43A car, but we had a good battle there. Another podium finish isn't bad, we will take it and head to Port Royal tomorrow night."
Bare held his own against the nation's top drivers. "These guys in front of me, they are the best of the best. We had a great run. I got into Scott [Bloomquist] once there and he just took off from there. This is only my third super race that I have run. We have run a bunch of crate races. Thanks to Brian Klinedinst for giving me an opportunity to drive his car. We'll try it again at Port Royal tomorrow night."
The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports-owned Longhorn Chassis has an Andy Durham engine under the hood. The sponsors include: Crop Production Services, Spartan Mowers, Valvoline, ASC Warranty, Penske Shocks, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Midwest Sheet Metal, and Sunoco Race Fuels.
Completing the top ten were Earl Pearson Jr., Gregg Satterlee, Darrell Lanigan, Kyle Lee, and Don O'Neal.
