A unique pairing rolled to the starting line for the Pro Nitrous Motorcycle final round at the Summit Racing Equipment PDRA East Coast Nationals presented by FuelTech at GALOT Motorsports Park, as Kuwait-based No. 1 qualifier Meshal Al-Saber lined up next to 17-year-old Brayden Davis, who made his debut this weekend. After taking down two world champions, Davis cut a .004 reaction time to leave on Al-Saber and his .022. The third-generation rider was ahead at the finish line, too, posting a 3.992 at 175.34 next to Al-Saber’s 3.998 at 172.04. Right after winning on his father’s championship-winning Timblin Chassis motorcycle, Davis won in the Pro Jr. Dragster final round for a rare double-up.
“This was a dream, perfect weekend,” said Davis, who thanked parents Travis and Brandy and supporters like Monster Race Products, DTM Performance, MaxxECU, Fast By Gast, and Worldwide Bearings. “I knew the performance was there with my dad and Dan Wagner on the computer. When those two get together, great things are just bound to happen.
“I knew I needed to do my part riding,” Davis continued. “I felt real comfortable on the bike this weekend. Dad told me to just focus on the tree and stay consistent. It got us in the winner’s circle, but the performance side of it, it’s a new experimental motor we’re doing and it’s actually smaller CC and it’s showing a lot of potential. It stayed together, and it had more in it, but we were just trying to play it safe and make sure we could go down the racetrack and be competitive.”
Davis, a past Top Jr. Dragster world champion and the son of multi-time and reigning Pro Nitrous world champion Travis Davis, started his first-ever race day in the class with 2021 world champion Chris Garner-Jones in the other lane. Davis left the line first and ran a 4.015 at 175.18 to beat Garner-Jones’ 4.006 on a holeshot. He then left first against multi-time world champion Eric McKinney before beating McKinney’s 4.024 with a 3.985 at 175.82.
Al-Saber on Brad McCoy’s Q80 Racing Hayabusa was supposed to face Terry Wynn in the first round, but Wynn couldn’t make the call. Al-Saber used a 4.015 at 176.56 to earn lane choice over Ashley Owens in the second round. He left on Owens and recorded a 3.98 at 177.58 to defeat Owens’ 4.044, earning lane choice for the final round by .005.
