Pro Mod and Funny Bike legend Travis Davis scored yet another Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) win Sunday night at the Drag 965 Summer Shootout presented by Classic Graphix at Virginia Motorsports Park.
Multi-time Pro Nitrous Motorcycle world champion Davis didn’t plan on attending the Summer Shootout, as his son, Brayden, was racing his Jr. Dragster at the NHRA Eastern Conference Finals in Bristol, Tennessee, all week. But a last-minute trip to Virginia paid off with Davis’s second consecutive win, as he won in the final round over a red-lighting Chris Garner-Jones. Garner-Jones was .005 red, while Davis was .005 on the green side and followed through with a 4.088 at 169.51 to take the win.
“This is kind of unexpected,” said Davis, who thanked his wife, Brandy, as well as Brayden, chassis builder Walt Timblin, Dan Wagner of DTM, and Steve Nichols of MaxxECU. “We went to Bristol with our son racing with Capital City [Motorsports Park]. He won on Tuesday in his age group in one of the classes. First time we’ve ever won anything at Bristol. When the ECFs started, we got beat first round, and we had the bike in the trailer, so we loaded everything up because we saw [PDRA] got weather delays here and we saw we would be able to get some qualifying in. We hauled tail here, and here we are in the winner’s circle.”
Davis, who said he was down on power, qualified third before winning first round with a 4.108 at 175.50 over Terry Wynn. Second-round opponent Mohammad Alawad went red by .299, causing Davis to go red by .032 on his winning 4.028 at 175.87.
Garner-Jones, the defending world champion, qualified No. 1 to bounce back from a DNQ at the last race. He then set low ET of the weekend, a 4.015, on a first-round single. He moved on to the final round with a 4.086 over Tyrone Lemons.
