For the second time in as many nights, Superman flew into Charlotte, beat up the bad guys and stood in victory lane with another trophy rather than a cape.
After losing the lead earlier in the race, Davenport found himself in a position he is not familiar with in needing to chase the lead back down again. He did exactly that, getting past Garrett Smith for the lead a second time in Turn 3 en route to back-to-back wins at the NGK NTK World Finals.
“I knew that the 10 had beat me the previous lap, so I said oh no, what was I going to do,” Davenport said. “I just kept trying the top down there, it got me to third and almost second on the first lap when everyone went for the rubber, and I just blasted the top, and it stuck somehow.”
The Blairsville, GA driver capped off a weekend to remember on a stage he has holds in high regard for Late Model racing.
“This is the racing capital of the World almost, and it should be a crown jewel event,” Davenport said.
