BILSTEIN Sponsoring Late Model Dirt Series Champion

Jan 13, 2021

Three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series national champion Jonathan Davenport will compete this year on BILSTEIN shocks, the company announced.

Nicknamed ‘Superman,’ the South Carolina driver secured a first-place finish Saturday during the first round of the 2021 Wild West Shootout in the No. 49 Double L Motorsports Longhorn Chassis equipped with BILSTEIN AS2-R shocks.

“We’re looking to win another Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series national championship, and our new BILSTEIN AS2-R shocks will give us a competitive edge,” said Davenport. “I’m just really glad how the car’s reacting to changes. It feels like it’s supposed to.”

Davenport, who’s been racing since 1991, lists winning the 2015, 2018 and 2019 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championships and Crown Jewel races as his most memorable moments. He will take to the track again at the 2021 Speedweeks which kick off Jan. 25 at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida.
