BATAVIA, OH – The 2015 and 2018 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, Jonathan Davenport, has joined Scott Bloomquist and Jimmy Owens as three-time National Champions, just one behind Earl Pearson Jr.
Davenport finished out the season with 12 feature wins, 30 top five and 40 top ten finishes, allowing him to maintain the points lead for most of the season. After the banquet, Davenport and his Lance Landers Motorsports team will have banked over $370,000 this year, including event winnings, tow money, championship points earnings, and various other year end cash awards.

Huge thanks to Lance (Landers), Steve Martin with Nutrien Ag Solutions, Rachel, Blane, my dad, Jason, Tyler, Matt, Brewster, all of my sponsors, and fans.”
