Jonathan Davenport earned his ninth career World Of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Models victory by passing 2021 series champion Brandon Sheppard with 19 laps to go and pulling away to a four-second win. Sheppard was second with Dennis Erb Jr. third.
"(The car) was really good," Davenport said. "I thought I was a little bit better than Brandon when he was behind the 7 car (of Ricky Weiss), but I knew he had a little bit of dirty air and I could run a lane lower than he could. Once (Brown) he got into the lead, I thought, 'Oh, crap, he's going to be in clean air.' But we got to lapped cars and it slowed him up a little bit. It gave me just enough where I could get a run on him."
