Jonathan Davenport bounced back from a Friday night miscue to capture the $5,000 Super Late Model winner’s share in Sunday’s 30-lap main event that put the wraps on Round Two of USA Raceway’s Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by Black Diamond-Club 29 Race Cars.
Davenport made a late move around Jimmy Mars to post the win aboard the TS Crane Service/Sundance Services Longhorn-chassic and is eligible for a potential $100,000 bonus along with Saturday night Don O’Neal if he can reel off five wins in six nights.
While Davenport took Super Late Model honors, Many, Louisiana’s Cade Dillard topped the Modifieds for the second night in a row while Tyler Peterson bested the X-Mods 128 cars filled the USA Raceway pit area on a Sunday evening.
Racing from fifth in the 30-lap Super Late Model feature, Daveport slid past Ryan Gustin for second on the 24th lap and then dove under Jimmy Mars entering turn one on the 27th round to take command.
“I had to slide by both of them there, I hope I cleared ‘em and gave ‘em enough room,” Davenport commented afterward.
Mars chased Davenport to the stripe while Jason Papick claimed third after Gustin looped it in an effort to reclaim position from Davenport. Garrett Alberson and Round One winner Don O’Neal rounded out the top five.
Cade Dillard made it two-for-two in Barnett Harley-Davidson Modifieds presented by MVT action by capturing Sunday’s feature win from the third starting position.
Dillard beat pole starter Ricky Thornton, Jr., to the checkered flag with Stormy Scott, 12th-starter Brad Dierks and Jake Hartung rounding out the top five.
After going up in smoke while chasing down the leader in Saturday’s opener, Hickson, North Dakota’s Tyler Peterson rebounded by racing to victory lane in Sunday’s Border International and RealTruck.com X-Mods presented by Polar Industries 20-lapper.
Peterson took the win from the pole position ahead of Saturday winner Ron Schreiner with Grant Southworth, James Binkley and 14th-starter Jimmy Ray rounding out the top five.
The Wild West Shootout continues at USA Raceway on Wednesday with racing action set to go green at 7:00 p.m. with ensuing rounds to follow on Friday through Sunday, January 15-17.
A $5,000 winner’s share is up for grabs through the opening five nights of competition with AR Bodies raising the stakes of the January 17 finale to $11,000-to-win.
