Defending PDRA world champion Travis Davis picked up right where he left off at the end of the 2020 season by qualifying No. 1 at the season-opening Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) East Coast Nationals presented by FuelTech.
Three-time Pro Nitrous Motorcycle world champion Davis rode his way to the top of the qualifying order on the strength of a 4.044 at 174.91 aboard his Timblin Chassis ’18 Hayabusa, which underwent some changes over the winter. The performance sets up Davis for eliminations, where the Douglas, Georgia-based entry typically comes alive.
“From what we’re seeing, we have plenty of room to pick up and go faster,” said Davis, who thanked Dan Wagner at DTM Performance, Steve Nichols at MaxxECU, Timblin Chassis, his father, John, at Cyclemasters, wife Brandy, son Brayden and Perry’s Performance. “We’re just taking small steps and trying to pick up every round. Usually on race day is when I start picking things up, so I’m actually a little bit ahead of the game compared to where I normally am. I think we’ll be good if we can keep everything together.”
Championship runner-up Chris Garner-Jones grabbed the No. 2 spot with his Jones Racing ’11 Hayabusa running a 4.087 at 170.51. Cleveland, North Carolina’s Brad McCoy qualified third with a 4.128 at 171.21 on his ’20 Hayabusa.
The PDRA East Coast Nationals presented by FuelTech continues Saturday with sportsman and Jr. Dragster final qualifying beginning at 9:15 a.m. Sportsman and Jr. Dragster eliminations start at 12:30 p.m. Pre-race ceremonies and pro class eliminations will begin at 3:25 p.m.
