Jonathan Davenport (#49) of Blairsville, Ga. pocketed Wednesday night's $10,000 Castrol Floracing Night in America Super Late Model prize over NASCAR's Kyle Larson at Volunteer Speedway in Northeast Tennessee.

In doing so, JD also claims the $20,000 points championship, despite one final midweek show next Thursday in nearby Brasstown, N.C.

Larson, currently second behind Davenport in points, races Super Late Models and Sprint Cars whenever plausible with his busy NASCAR commitments.

Canadian Ricky Weiss was third Wednesday night with Hudson O'Neil of Indiana and Loudon, Tn.'s Cory Hedgecock finishing up the top five.
