NEW RICHMOND, Wis. - Aug. 1, 2015 - Making his historic 2015 season even better, Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., led the final 88 laps of Saturday's 28th annual USA Nationals at Cedar Lake Speedway to score a $50,000 victory in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series crown jewel event.
Davenport, whose stellar 2015 campaign already included a $100,000 payday at Eldora Speedway's Dirt Late Model Dream and a $26,000 Prairie Dirt Classic triumph at Fairbury American Legion Speedway just one week ago, overtook Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, Ill., on lap 23 of Saturday's 100-lap race and pulled away from Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., in the closing laps on his way to his first USA Nationals victory.
The 31-year-old Davenport drove his Kevin and Lee Roy Rumley-owned Longhorn Chassis to his 16th overall victory of the season and his third of the year on the WoO LMS.

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. - July 31, 2015 - Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., moved one step closer to finally claiming his sixth USA Nationals victory with a near perfect performance during Friday night's preliminary action for Cedar Lake Speedway's crown jewel event.
Moyer, who won the USA Nationals five times between 1988 and 1993 before going winless in the event for more than two decades, will chase his sixth Wooden Eagle trophy from the pole of Saturday's 100-lap USA Nationals A-Main after dominating Friday's prelim action.
The 57-year-old Moyer won the first of five heat races for the $50,000-to-win World of Outlaws Late Model Series event and claimed the Pole Dash to earn the inside-front-row starting spot for Saturday's main event. For good measure, Moyer capped Friday's action with a victory in the 12-lap FANSFund Dash for the 11 drivers participating in the USA Nationals as part of the event's fan-voted and fan-funded travel program.
