BREWERTON, NY - October 4, 2016 - Brewerton and Fulton Speedways SUNY Canton Track Champion Ronnie Davis III from Memphis, N.Y will be looking to make it two series win in a row going into this Thursday, October 6 event at the Brewerton Speedway. The DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series will be on the race card with ‘The race of week,’ the 24th annual Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux ‘Hurricane’ 100 by SUNY Canton DIRTcar 358 Modified Series.
This past Saturday at the Fulton Speedway Davis won one of the crown jewels in sportsman racing, the DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series - $2,500-to-win Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout 50.
Eighty cars signed in the pits to battle for the coveted 30 starting spots for the feature. In the feature Davis started 17th and methodically worked his way to the front taking the lead on lap 34 from series star Brad Rouse. Once out front nobody seriously challenged Davis the rest of the distance.
Besides his two track championships Davis' story doesn’t stop there. A decision was made with his father and car owner Ron Davis to hit the trail for DIRTcar Champion Series in New York and the Canadian provinces in Ontario and Quebec.
Davis, who is a natural talent that is smooth behind the wheel, picked up series wins at his home tracks at Brewerton Speedway and Fulton Speedway. What is more impressive is he went to Ransomville Speedway in Western New York and Humberstone Speedway in Ontario, two places he has never seen before with a field of drivers as tough as you will find. When the checkers waved at both speedways Ron Davis III went to victory lane.
Even though Brewerton is Davis’s home track, this Thursday's series race will be a battle royal. This race attracts the best of the best Sportsman drivers from around the Northeast and Canada.
After the Fulton win Ronnie Davis III sits second in DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series points, 23 behind Canadian Shane Pecore.
Top Five DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series Points:
1. Shane Pecore (1,733) 2. Ronnie Davis III (1,710) 3. Martin Pelletier (1,701) 4. Brad Rouse (1,663) 5. Louie Jackson Jr. (1,576).
