We’ve all been hear a lot and we know what you normally put on, but it just looked a little different tonight for some reason, and the choice really worked out good for us,” commented Davenport in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Davenport added, “Scott came on there at the end and he was so good the whole race and it’s definitely a pleasure racing up there with him and finally getting a win,” Scott Bloomquist, Chris Madden, Tim McCreadie, and Brandon Overton rounded out the top five finishers.

On the drop of the green flag up the Ultimate Super Late Model feature Jonathan Davenport rocketed from the outside to take the lead from polesitter Scott Bloomquist heading out of turn 2. Once out front Davenport started to put some distance between himself and the battle for second between Bloomquist and Chris Madden. On lap 39 Madden managed to get by Bloomquist and set out to catch Davenport as they raced through traffic. On lap 42 the driver on the move was Tim McCreadie working his way up from his fifteenth starting position to take 4th from Austin Hubbard. On lap 50 Madden closed in on Davenport as the two worked traffic. On lap 55 Bloomquist got back by Madden for second as the two raced out of turn 4. With two laps to go Bloomquist had pulled to within striking distance of Davenport.

On lap 8 Williams would work his way around Hamm for the lead and looked to be the car to beat, but nobody told that to Ross Bailes who was working his way through the field. On lap 19 Bailes got by Williams for the lead and began to pull away from the field. On lap 33 Williams would go up in smoke with a blown motor and set up a seven-lap dash for the win.

Overton Scores $20,000 to win Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth presented by Essex Concrete Win; Davenport Takes $3000 FASTRAK Pro Late Model Win

(PR Contribution from Roby Helm) Jamaica, VA – Brandon Overton of Evans, GA drove the Randy Weaver Racing #116 to its second straight Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth presented by Essex Concrete win on Saturday night and pocketed $20,000 in the Aaron’s King of Commonwealth at Virginia Motor Speedway. Overton battled with Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, GA early and often before taking the lead for good on lap 28 of the 60-lap race. “That race car could have driven itself around there tonight; Jonathan (Davenport) showed me how to get around turn one and I got behind in lapped traffic and then turned it around on him later,” commented Overton in victory lane. Overton added “I just got my first $10,000 win and now a $20,000 win, it is kinda unreal I can’t thank Randy Weaver and the crew for giving me the chance to drive this car.” After starting on the outside of the front row, Davenport took the lead from polesitter Overton with a crossover move to the inside coming off the second turn on the first lap that saw Marlar, Madden and Hubbard in third through fifth respectively. One crossover move is worth another, as Overton returned the favor on Davenport to take the lead on lap two, as McDowell got by Hubbard for the fifth spot. The caution flag was unfurled for the first time on lap three when 2016 ULTIMATE SE Rookie of the Year Glenn Elliott spun in turn four. Marlar gave up the third spot on the track to pit under caution. Overton pulled in front of Davenport on lap seven, and Madden worked his way back around Hubbard for the third spot. Davenport made an inside move on Overton coming off the fourth turn on lap nine to take the lead. Hubbard and Madden were still contesting the third spot, with Hubbard reclaiming the position on the 11th lap. Davenport reached the cars on the tail end of the lead lap on lap 13, and McDowell got around Madden to take the fourth spot on lap 15. Overton chased down Davenport in lapped traffic, and began to challenge for the lead on lap 20. McDowell and Madden got by Hubbard to move up to third and fourth respectively on lap 20. Davenport was able to keep Overton behind him in lapped traffic, but once they had clear race track in front of them, Overton dove to the inside going into turn three on lap 28 to take the lead from Davenport. McDowell then closed on Davenport and they raced side-by-side for second on lap 30. Elliott brought out the caution flag for a second time on lap 32 to bunch up the field for a restart. By lap 35, Overton had pulled out to a half straightaway lead over McDowell. Marlar moved into the top five again on lap 38 when he got around Ferguson. The final caution flag of the race came out on lap 44 for debris in turn four. Overton led McDowell, Davenport, Marlar, Madden, Ferguson and Hubbard double-file back to the green flag. Marlar passed Davenport for the third spot on lap 45, and with ten laps to go, Overton had once again opened up a half straightaway lead over McDowell. Overton found himself in lapped traffic on lap 53. Overton had increased his lead over McDowell to a full straightaway on lap 55. At the checkered flag, Overton was out of sight of McDowell and took the checkered flag with a 4.175 second margin of victory. In the FASTRAK Racing Pro Late Model $3000 to win feature Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, GA, one of only a few drivers pulling double duty, returned to his dirt late model roots Saturday night and won the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth presented by Essex Concrete 40. After starting on the outside of the front row for the main event, Davenport took the lead and never looked back. The driver known as “Superman” led all 40 laps for the win driving the C&H Paving Barry Wright “House Car.” “We’re off to a good start this year with our Chevrolet Performance Circle Track Engine program, as we’re three for three so far this season,” Davenport said. “Now, if we could just get some of that success to rub off on our super late model program we would be in good shape.” A pair of multi-car wrecks in turn one on the first two attempts to start the race accounted for two of the five caution flags in the event. Once everyone settled into a race pace, Davenport took the lead from his outside front row starting spot, followed by polesitter Ford, Justin Williams, Ron Parker of Belwood, NC in the Schaeffer Oil Rocket and Nance. Parker passed Williams for third on lap two, and by lap seven, Davenport had opened up a half straightaway lead on Ford. By the ninth lap, Davenport caught the cars on the tail end of the lead lap, but that didn’t slow him down at all. Williams began to fade a little on lap ten, as Nance passed him for fourth, and Knight got by him for the fifth spot on lap 12. Nance had a good run going, as he worked his way around Parker for the third position on the 14th tour. The field slowed for a caution flag on lap 16 when Beachler stalled in turn one. The double-file restart saw Davenport leading Ford, Nance, Parker, Knight, Bare, Justin Williams, Arthur, Hicks and Frankie Beard of Hartwell, GA in the Jessica Cornett Racing/CMP Automotive Mastersbilt in the second through tenth spots respectively for the restart. On the restart, Ford pushed up high in turn four, and hit the guardrail on the front straightaway. That caused Arthur to get sideways, and grab a handful of steering wheel. Arthur didn’t hit anyone, or anything, and the field stayed green with a major shuffle behind the leader Davenport. The caution flag came back out on lap 19 when teammates Matthew Quade of Mechanicsville, MD in the Northern Neck Chevrolet Rocket and Jared Powell of Scottsville, VA in the Northern Neck Chevrolet Rocket tangled with Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA in the Ditch Witch Longhorn in turn two. On the restart, Bare got by Nance for the second spot in turn two, and Hornsby, after restarting in the seventh spot, made a big move and passed Nance for third on the front straightaway on lap 20. Nance fell back to fifth on lap 23 when Ford got by for the fourth spot. Davenport encountered lapped traffic on lap 28 with a 15 car-length lead on Bare. By lap 30, Davenport had once again opened back up a half straightaway lead. Debris in turn four on lap 33 lit up the yellow bulb for a final time. With the field bunched up single file behind him, Davenport was once again up to the task, and led the seven lap dash to the finish. The Speedway will return to racing next Saturday April 15th and host week 2 of the Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship weekly racing action featuring the Victory Lap Pro Late Model, Truckin Thunder Sportsman, Budweiser Modified and Collision One Limited Stock Car divisions.

USA 100 Falls to Rain Again

USA 100 Falls to Rain Again

Jamaica, VA – After an 1 ½ hour rain delay and a yeoman’s effort at trying to get the racing surface back into shape officials of Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway and the Ultimate Super Late Model Series had to make the difficult decision to cancel the $20,000 to win 40th Annual Aaron’s USA 100 presented by Commonwealth Motorsports. This is the second time this year that the USA 100 has fallen to rain. “We did all we could do to try and race tonight, we can’t thank the fans and competitors that came out to support us tonight for their support and patience throughout the night. We wanted desperately to get the USA 100 and the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship presented by Dirt Nation in tonight,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer. The day looked promising with a packed pit area for the USA 100. After hot laps for the Modifieds, FASTRAK Pro Late Models and two sessions of Ultimate Super Late Model Series hot laps the rains came and stuck around for an hour and a half. Track and Series officials waited out the rain and then worked to get the track into racing shape. With the high humidity the more the track staff ran the track in the more moisture came to the top making for a very dangerous situation. It was determined at that time that there was no way to get the track back thus, forcing the cancellation. “You can’t do anything about Mother Nature. The track did an outstanding job trying to get this race in tonight for our Ultimate Super Late Model and FASTRAK competitors, you can’t ask any more of a track staff, “ commented FASTRAK / Ultimate Super Late Model Series Owner Stan Lester. Lester added, “I hate that we couldn’t get in the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship but we did pay out the point fund to those that followed the mini-series. I also hate that we couldn’t honor Dale Hollidge as the Colonial Clash Championship Champion on the front stretch. I have to thank the track staff for trying to get this in and the drivers for their patience during the evening”. The speedway will return to racing next Saturday August 13 for MetroCast Night and week twelve of the Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship season featuring the Victory Lap Late Models, Budweiser Modifieds, Truckin Thunder Sportsman and Collision One Limited Stock Cars in action. Competitor gates for Saturday August 13th will open at 4pm with spectator gates opening at 5pm. On track activities will begin at 6:30pm with hot laps....
