Signs of Promise at Lee USA Has Davis Ready for White Mountain

Jeremy Davis has built up a reputation as being one of the most respected fabricators of Late Model chassis in New England in recent years. On the side, he has still found the time to wheel his own racecars in competition, often times being a threat to win.

This past Sunday, Davis was back behind the wheel for the first time in 2021, competing with the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models at Lee USA Speedway (NH). Before an engine failure ended his race prematurely, Davis showed a lot of speed, bolstering his confidence despite the mechanical folly.

 

“The car was going really well, but the motor didn’t want to stay with us. I think I had passed a bunch of the cars that later in the race ended up being the threats to win. It felt really good, I got a lot of laps at Lee, I was trying to save a lot too, just would’ve liked a chance at it,” Davis told Speed51.

 

Davis is set to be right back at it along with the rest of the PASS field this coming Sunday at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Putting in Top 5 finishes in three of four PASS events in 2020, WMMP is a track that Davis holds in the highest of respect.

 

It has been a good place, that’s where I really cut my teeth. I also got a lot of laps there. I always look forward to going to White Mountain, it’s probably my favorite track that’s still around at least. – Jeremy Davis

 

One of the purposes for Davis’ continued driving efforts are to test new setups before recommending them to his customers. This will be the case once again this weekend, on a car that does have some miles on it.

 

“It’s a car that I built about three years ago, but I haven’t been able to race as much with my business. It’s not old, but it’s not brand new, but we’re always trying something.”

 

His business, Davis Chassis Works is as busy as ever; and has rarely gotten a time to relax. Not even during the dark days of the 2020 pandemic shutdown.

 

“It’s been good, I’ve been really busy with my stuff. Honestly, last year even when everything was closed up we were busier than normal. It just shook everything up.”

 

Going forward, Davis’ primary plan is to continue hitting New Hampshire races on the PASS schedule in 2021, with the possibility of any other events to be looked at a later date.

 

“My plan is to run the tracks that I usually run at anyway; White Mountain, Lee, Hudson, and Monadnock with the PASS races. If I add up those races I’ll probably end up doing six races at least. We’ll see how it goes.”
