    WHEATLAND, MO (May 21st, 2015) – Thursday’s Cowboy Classic boasted a field of 80 of the top Dirt Late Model drivers from across the country. When the checkers flew following the exciting 45 lap feature, it was all smiles for the Rumley team. Their driver Jonathan Davenport stood in Andy’s Frozen Custard Victory Lane.

    Davenport started on the inside of the second row and rode during the opening 8 laps of the event until the first yellow. On the restart he came to life and powered around race leader Will Vaught and never looked back. Davenport’s win is his first ever with the Lucas Oil MLRA and first at Lucas Oil Speedway.

    “I don’t know how the race was behind me, but it sure was exciting where I was,” said Davenport. “You could just miss your line by just a little bit, and just be like a sitting duck, or you could hit it just right and have all the traction in the world.”

    Behind Davenport there was all kinds of movement through the field. Jesse Stovall started the main event on the inside of the seventh row and calmly worked his way forward. Late in the feature he looked to factor in the final outcome as he passed Jared Landers for second. Stovall began to shrink the gap between himself and Davenport, but ran out of laps.

    Carrying on the momentum from his April 11th MLRA win at Lucas Oil Speedway, Jared Landers had his new Sweet – Bloomquist near the front all night, finishing third.

    Three yellows slowed the race, the scariest of which for Will Vaught on lap 13. Running second he caught fire under the hood and quickly pulled to the infield where the Hobbytime Motorsports Safety Crew quickly put it out.

    Scott Lewis was the overall fast qualifier in Time Trials with a best lap of 15.348. He later won his heat race too.

    Racing continues Friday with qualifying for the 23rd Annual Lucas Oil Show Me 100 Presented by It begins with Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series/MLRA Miller Welders Time Trials, plus six, 20-lap heat races. The top (3) finishers in each heat race are locked into the $30,000-to-win, Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 on Saturday night. The balance of the field will move on to the LOLMDS B-Mains on Saturday night.

    Friday night racing action also includes the Race of Champions and the Hot Rod Tracker Manufacturers Dash. The Race of Champions, which pays $1,000-to-win, is made up of the previous Show-Me 100, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, and Lucas Oil MLRA Champions that are registered in this year’s Show-Me 100.

    The Hot Rod Tracker Manufactures Dash, featuring the fastest qualifiers in each registered chassis brand, also pays a $1,000 top prize. The Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds will be featured as the support class and will run their qualifying Heat Races for Saturday’s $1,000-to-win main event.
