Jonathan Davenport & Kyle Busch team up to run Bristol SLM race
Jonathan Davenport’s No. 49 Longhorn
Two of racing’s biggest names will be joined together on the weekend of March 19-20 to compete in the Bristol Dirt Nationals at Tennessee’s Bristol Motor Speedway. Former NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch will join former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series champion Jonathan Davenport to drive Longhorn Chassis Late Model race cars for Lance Landers’ Double L Motorsports team in the special events on the dirt covered NASCAR track.
The Friday night feature at BMS will pay $10,000 to the feature winner while the Saturday night contest will dole out $50,000 to the driver who is first under the checkered flag.
Busch will be free to compete on Friday and Saturday due to the fact that the NASCAR Cup Series will be contesting a one-day show at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, March, 21st. Davenport, on the other hand, will have to forego two points-paying LOLMDS races on that same weekend set to be held at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway and Indiana’s Brownstown Speedway.
The plans for the pairing of the stars from NASCAR and Dirt Late Model were made known in a Twitter post from Ryan Delph of Delph Communications then retweeted by Davenport himself. Here is that tweet:
As has been well documented, the normally concrete-surfaced Bristol Motor Speedway has been covered with dirt for the purpose of running the first NASCAR Cup Series race since the early 1970s on clay. That race will be preceded by a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Those events are set for the weekend of March 27th & 28th.
The high-banked half-mile track was last covered in dirt in the early 2000s for events sanctioned by the World of Outlaws. While the Bristol Dirt Nationals will be unsanctioned, there will also be races held in the upper northeastern corner of Tennessee for the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series on April 9th and 10th paying $10,000 and $25,000 to the respective winners.

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will be there between the dates of April 22-24 for the World of Outlaws Bristol Throwdown.
Busch looks forward the his two night foray on the dirt.
“Most of my experience in super late models have come on pavement, but I’ve really enjoyed dirt Super Late Model races when I’ve had the chance to run them,” Kyle Busch said in a press release. “The Prelude to the Dream at Eldora Speedway was a race I looked forward to every year and bringing home the win there in 2012 was something I’ll always remember. I want to thank Nutrien Ag Solutions and Double L Motorsports for the opportunity to get some seat time at Bristol in one of their Dirt Late Models.
He added praise for his future teammate.
“Jonathan Davenport’s resume speaks for itself with all the success he’s had in the Dirt Late Model cars, so I’m looking forward to learning all I can from him. While the cars are completely different than the NASCAR Cup Series cars we will run at Bristol, just getting some experience on dirt with a great team and a knowledgeable teammate will be invaluable for the following weekend.”

Thinking back to when he started his Dirt Late Model racing career, Jonathan Davenport said he couldn’t have imagined winning one World 100, let alone four in his career.
But that’s exactly what he accomplished Saturday night, taking the lead from Brandon Overton just past halfway and leading the final 45 laps to win the 50th World 100 at Eldora Speedway.
“To me, I couldn’t have ever dreamt it up like this,” Davenport, of Blairsville, GA, said. “We’re only as good as our last race – that’s the way I always feel. I didn’t win the last one, so I feel like I’ve got to win the next one.”
Superman now joins an elite class of Late Model drivers at Eldora, becoming only the fourth man in history to win the World 100 at least four times – a feat previously accomplished by Billy Moyer (6), Scott Bloomquist (4) and Donnie Moran (4).
The $53,000 winner’s check now makes it six events Davenport and the Double L Motorsports team have won with winner’s shares of $20,000 or higher this year. In short, they’ve been just plain dominant when the money, and prestige, are on the line.
“It’s been a hell of a year, for sure,” Davenport said. “It’s probably been the best I’ve ever had, if not, the best so far against this competition.”
While he was all smiles in Victory Lane, a look of determination was painted across his face on pit road as the engines fired to start the 100-lap showdown. Rolling off P6 after a win in Heat 1, Davenport let the field get away from him a tiny bit in the early going, dropping back as far as 10th at one point. But this was all part of his plan.
“We got to start sixth, so I thought I had a big enough buffer that I could fall back a little and run my pace,” Davenport said. “Probably 10-15 laps into that run, I never really changed my pace, and then everybody started coming back to me.”
Fifteen laps later, Davenport had cracked into the top-five and had his sights set on the leaders. Brandon Sheppard, Bobby Pierce, Brandon Overton and Johnny Scott were all still ahead of him, but it didn’t take long for him to crack the whip.
While Davenport began to pick cars off one-by-one, Overton decided it was time to make a move for the lead and did so on Lap 42, getting around Scott on the backstretch. He led the field around the half-mile for the next 12 laps, until the caution was displayed on Lap 55.
Overton chose the top lane for the ensuing restart, and right to his inside was none other than Davenport. He had made the climb and knew it was his moment to pounce, and he did with a slide job into Turn 1 to take the lead.
“He chose the top on the restart, and I got a decent run on him, and then I just tried to clear him getting into Turn 1,” Davenport said. “I figured he would slide me back, but I was just wanting to dirty his air up, make him slide his tires or something, get him out of rhythm.”
“I should have been able to carry enough speed to block him, but I couldn’t,” Overton said. “It wouldn’t have mattered if [Davenport] would’ve passed me on that restart; he would’ve got me on one of ‘em.”
Getting the jump on that restart was critical, and Davenport made sure he did just that by anticipating Overton’s takeoff when the green was thrown.
“The way they’ve got us boxed-in now, the other guy knows exactly where you’re gonna take off, so there’s no way you can really get a true jump on him,” Davenport said. “That’s what happened with Brandon – I knew exactly where he was gonna take off, within a half-car-length or so.”
Now with the lead, Davenport set it on cruise control. Meanwhile, another driver was on a mission.
Mike Marlar was forced to get into the show via Last Chance Showdown after getting caught-up in a Heat Race incident. He made repairs during the break, went out onto the track and put on a passing clinic, advancing to third from 17th and getting the final transfer spot into the 50th World 100.
Marlar said that the wreck in the Heat actually gave him a chance to work on his car and fine-tune it a bit more before the Last Chance. This enabled him to become a passing machine over the next two races.
“My car had good lateral grip. When they would all go down in the corner and drift up the track, I could stick it in there and get ‘em,” Marlar said.
A third-place finish in the Last Chance put him 26th on the Feature starting grid. For the first half of the race, he passed even more cars, advancing all the way to fifth by Lap 53. One by one, Marlar picked off the cars in the top-five and was sitting second with just over a quarter of the race left.
Marlar held his spot until the final restart on Lap 92, where he had one chance to score his first globe after starting 26th. He gave Davenport a good race down the straightway, but the #49 was just too fast.
Davenport drove away in the final laps and took the win by over 1.7 seconds to claim his fourth World 100 title.
“I’m grateful for it,” Marlar said of his run from the back. “Tonight, to actually have a shot with five-to-go, me and Jonathan drag racing down the front straightaway, door-to-door… he barely got me, but I was really grateful to get to run good.”
Overton hung on for third after bagging his first globe on Thursday night. While he was one man to beat all weekend long and missed the setup for Saturday, he knew what he and the Wells Motorsports team accomplished at Eldora this season was still impressive, even if they came up short of another sweep in the end.
“Honestly, I just got a little too tight and couldn’t steer in there,” Overton said. “It’s bound to happen. You can’t win ‘em all.”
The week’s overall top point-getter, Tim McCreadie, came home fourth after a drive from 18th, while Chris Ferguson bagged his second-straight World 100 top-10 in fifth.
Polesitter Scott Bloomquist led the first 18 laps before fading back and eventually coming to pit road under yellow. The four-time globe winner was part of two more cautions, and eventually decided to call it quits on Lap 72.
Pierce, who started on the outside pole, ran up front for most of the race before fading late and bringing out the race’s final caution on Lap 92. He pulled into the pits and retired with an apparent internal issue.

Busch Entered for Bristol Dirt Nationals!
(February 25, 2021) Nutrien Ag Solutions and Double L Motorsports - based in Batesville, Arkansas - are excited to announce their entries for the upcoming 'Bristol Dirt Nationals' scheduled for March 19-20 at the dirt-covered Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. The first entry will be three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Jonathan Davenport from Blairsville, Georgia, who will pilot his familiar #49 Longhorn Chassis. Along with Jonathan as a Nutrien Ag Solutions teammate will be two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch.
Kyle, who has past Super Late Model racing experience including winning the 2012 edition of the 'Prelude to the Dream' at Eldora (OH) Speedway, will be running the exact same Longhorn Chassis as Jonathan out of the Double L Motorsports stable, but with his trademark #51 adorning his machine. While Nutrien Ag Solutions will be the primary sponsor for "Rowdy" during the 'Bristol Dirt Nationals' weekend, a full list of marketing partners is still being worked on and details will be released as the event nears.
"Nutrien Ag Solutions is very excited to have this caliber of drivers representing us on the famed 1/2-mile dirt oval at Bristol," exclaimed Steve Martin with Nutrien Ag Solutions. "Jonathan (Davenport) and Double L Motorsports have done a great job of representing us over the past several years and all of us are excited about this inaugural Bristol Dirt Nationals event. To add Kyle (Busch) to our team for that weekend is extra special, as he is obviously one of the best drivers in the world. I know he hasn't wheeled a Super Late Model in a few years, but he will be in great equipment - just like Jonathan - and I'm looking forward to watching both drivers perform well on March 19-20!"
The 'Bristol Dirt Nationals' will usher in the return of dirt racing at the high-banked Bristol Motor Speedway for the first time in twenty years from March 15-20. A huge week of racing at the Bristol, Tennessee facility will see eight different classes competing with champions crowned over the weekend. The ground-pounding Super Late Models will take center stage at Bristol starting on Friday, as a $10,000 top prize will be on the line for the 900+ horsepower cars. The stakes are significantly raised for Saturday's grand finale, as both Jonathan and Kyle will vie for the whopping $50,000 payday in the inaugural 'Bristol Dirt Nationals' that will culminate with a 60-lap headliner.
"This is an event that we have been eyeing since it was announced during the off-season," commented Jonathan Davenport, who already has three wins during his young 2021 season including a January 17 triumph at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Arizona that was worth a total of $38,000. "The first dirt races at Bristol back twenty years ago were huge for our sport and since then, we have come a long way in the amount of exposure that our type of racing gets. I believe that this year's Bristol Dirt Nationals and having Kyle (Busch) compete in it along with a bunch of talented dirt drivers, will put even more eyeballs on our sport. He is a heck of a wheelman in anything he drives, so I am definitely looking forward to teaming up with Kyle and see what we can both do on the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway!"
"Most of my experience in super late models have come on pavement, but I've really enjoyed dirt Super Late Model races when I've had the chance to run them," said Kyle Busch. "The Prelude to the Dream at Eldora Speedway was a race I looked forward to every year and bringing home the win there in 2012 was something I'll always remember. I want to thank Nutrien Ag Solutions and Double L Motorsports for the opportunity to get some seat time at Bristol in one of their Dirt Late Models.

While the cars are completely different than the NASCAR Cup Series cars we will run at Bristol, just getting some experience on dirt with a great team and a knowledgeable teammate will be invaluable for the following weekend."

Landers started racing when his father, a former racer, opened a car sales business. The business sponsored sprint car racerTim Crawley, who built Landers a dirt go-kart. Landers stopped driving when he became an assistant of Crawley and Terrell Chastain, whom Landers' father's business also sponsored. When he turned 17, Landers returned to racing, driving a modified at Batesville Motor Speedway. open-wheel modifieds, Landers has over 100 wins in the discipline.
Landers later moved from Batesville, Arkansas to Welcome, North Carolina. In North Carolina, he became friends with NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer, who invited him to drive for his late model team. Landers also connected with NASCAR drivers Austin and Ty Dillon, building the brothers a dirt modified.
In 2011, Landers started competing in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, winning Rookie of the Year.
In 2013, Landers made his NASCAR debut in the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway, NASCAR's first dirt track race since 1970. While racing for Bowyer, Landers met former NASCAR driver Mark Martin, who assisted him in adjusting to a stock car for the Mudsummer Classic. Landers won his heat race after holding off Matt Crafton for the win; after starting second in the feature, he finished 12th. Landers later attempted the 2014 Mudsummer Classic but withdrew from the event.
Landers departed Clint Bowyer Racing after the 2014 season and moved back to Arkansas. However, he and Martin remained close and the two co-owned a team with Mark Martin Automotive sponsoring the cars. In 2015, the team hired Scott Bloomquist, who recorded over 550 feature victories, as Landers' teammate.
In July 2016, Landers was competing at Tri-City Speedway when his car flipped; the wreck tore his common carotid artery in his neck. He continued to race until it was discovered in mid-August.

The mid-thigh skirt accentuated the rounded thighs, and the side slit allowed just enough to be seen to induce an uncontrollable urge to thrust her hand into it and touch. The inside of her thighs. The sheer-sided heeled shoes offered a view of her toes and part of her foot.
She was a little worried, but looked confidently in the mirror, putting on her makeup.
