Jonathan Davenport Completes CCSDS Bad Boy Weekend Sweep
Collects $12,000 in Saturday Night Triumph at Batesville
Locust Grove, Arkansas (05/08/21) – Saturday night found Georgia’s Jonathan Davenport completing a sweep of the 2021 edition of the Bad Boy 98 weekend at Batesville Motor Speedway.
From his outside-front-row starting position Davenport led all 68 laps of Saturday night’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series event at the 3/8-mile. He received $12,000 for his second-straight CCSDS triumph and with the victory he pushed his weekend earning to over $17,000. (Millie Tanner Photo)
While the pilot of the No. 49 maintained the top spot throughout the finale, he had to endure a late-race challenge from NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Sitter, Brian Rickman.
“Rickman, he must’ve been pretty good there. I couldn’t find the rubber there, after that caution. I had me a really good rhythm going before that last caution,” Davenport said. “I guess we just rode around there so long (under caution) that (the track) bled back just a little bit, and I think the rubber actually moved down. The further down I moved, the little bit better we was.
“That’s just racing in the rubber. Sometimes you’re a sitting duck when you’re out front. Like here in Arkansas you can’t really see the rubber like down South where I’m from, it’ll actually turn red so you can really see it pretty good. We’ll just ride this wave as long as we can. Like I said, my guys have been working really hard and we’re steadily trying to progress and get better and better. We actually made a lot of changes from last night, and I think we were really, really good there. “
Rickman crossed the finish line in second, while 10th-starting Timothy Culp was third as Billy Moyer and B.J. Robinson completed the Top-5 finishers.
On the heels of his weekend consistency, Brian Rickman has taken over the top spot in the latest series standings by 40 markers over Logan Martin. B.J Robinson is 65 points back with Kyle Bear and Hunter Rasdon in tow.
The CCSDS will be idle next weekend before resuming the 2021 campaign on May 21-22 with a doubleheader at Central Arkansas Speedway (Plumerville, Arkansas) and Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi).
The tire rule for the upcoming weekend is a Hoosier 1350 on all four corners with a right-rear option of a Hoosier 1600 white-dot.
