The National Dirt Racing League is making waves on the local, regional and national racing stages with high profile, rich events staged at some marquee facilities.
So it was last weekend as Steve Francis and Scott Bloomquist raced to rich wins at Pittsburgh’s PMS and Winchester Speedways.
But biggest winner of all on the short track scene was Jonathan Davenport. When the checkered flag flew over the hood of his car at Virginia Motor Speedway Saturday, Davenport and his team were suddenly $20,000 NDRL dollars richer.
It was one of the biggest wins of the 30-year old Georgian’s driving career and is comes in what is already becoming a breakout season for him.
High profile wins are news. The winners of twenty-thousand dollar races are the newsmakers.
Thus Jonathan Davenport is Area Auto Racing News’ Newsmaker for the week of April 15, 2014.
