LAKE CITY, Fla. - Jonathan Davenport, the three-time and defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, closed out the 2020 Georgia-Florida Speedweeks with his first win of the season on Sunday Night at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Florida.
The Blairsville, Georgia racer collected his 48th career series win, in the first-ever Series race held at All-Tech Raceway.
Devin Moran jumped to the early lead ahead of Gregg Satterlee, who was making his first start with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series this year. Davenport took the lead from Moran on lap 20, and sprinted away to win by over three seconds.
Mike Marlar crossed the finish line in second, with Brandon Sheppard in third, Zebulon, Georgia racer Shane Clanton in fourth and Jimmy Owens in fifth.
Davenport, the reigning series champion, was relieved to get his first win of 2020.
“You have no idea,” Davenport said. “My team has worked so hard and we have so much bad racing luck, it’s been unbelievable. Thanks to Lance and Darla Landers, I know they are watching back home. Thanks to Steve Martin, from Nutrien Ag Solutions, for supporting us again this year. This was a brand-new car that we never got to test, and then we had to run it at East Bay. We needed this win.”
Moran, Tim McCreadie, Josh Richards, Billy Moyer, Jr., and Gregg Satterlee rounded out the top ten.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series returns to action on Friday, March 20 at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. For more information, visit LucasDirt.com.
