A 2020 season shortened and shifted by the COVID-19 public health crisis will conclude this weekend as the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) will crown its world champions at the Proline Racing Brian Olson Memorial World Finals, Oct. 22-25 at Virginia Motorsports Park. It’s the series’ sixth race in a season that was originally set to include eight events.
“There’s nothing like closing out the season with our biggest race of the year,” said Tyler Crossnoe, race director, PDRA. “In terms of car count and excitement, this race is always huge. We’re going to crown our 2020 world champions, hopefully set some new records and see some incredible racing.”
Two world championships have already been decided. Johnny Pluchino won the DragWars event two weeks ago, securing his place as a Liberty’s Gears Extreme Pro Stock world champion, joining his father, John, who won the title in 2016. Two-time and defending Drag 965 Pro Nitrous Motorcycle world champion Travis Davis also won at DragWars and locked up his third title in the process.
At the last race, in the first round, Davis and championship rival Chris Garner-Jones left the starting line with nearly identical reaction times, but Davis pulled away with his 4.069 at 175.09 over Garner-Jones’ 4.084 at 171.49. He was consistent in the semis, laying down a 4.068 at 174.71 while opponent Gerald Smith went red. With Davis’ win over Garner-Jones in the first round and his third win of the season, he clinched his third PDRA world championship.
