James Davison set for stock car debut
James Davison will make his stock car debut this weekend, competing in a Late Model Stock car race this Saturday night.
Davison, the younger cousin of V8 Supercars drivers Alex and Will Davison, will drive for Mike Yeakle Racing at Myrtle Beach Speedway, a half mile oval in South Carolina.
Yeakle is the crew chief on the Corvette GT that Davison drove at Indianapolis and Watkins Glen earlier this year, and the pair have taken their working relationship to the next level.
It will not be Davison’s first race on an oval, though. He competed in the 2009 Indy Lights Series, finishing second overall.
“I am most excited about this opportunity,” Davison told Speedcafe.com.
“Racing on ovals in Indy Lights, I most enjoyed the Milwaukee Mile as it was the one oval you had to lift in the turns and drive the car on edge all the way through.
“Mytle Beach will be much like this so I am really looking forward it. I have an hour practice before I go racing, I feel if we unload with a decent balance a good result can be achieved on debut.”
