Davis is best at Billings

By Dru Brown

BILLINGS, Mont. (June 4) – A strong run from start to finish put Travis Davis in Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified victory lane Saturday at Billings Motorsports Park.

Davis rocketed to the top spot at the drop of the green while Beau Nave was quickly in second with Jeremy Meirhofer in third, moving to the bottom line to try to make things happen.

Hank Berry started all the way back in the 10th position but that hardly slowed him down.  Berry challenging Nave for second and eventually wrestled it away.  Another yellow flag halted the ac­tion, and on this restart Meirhofer again stuck his car to the bottom lane but to no avail.

Berry was sizing up Travis Davis in every corner, but the laps were quickly ticking away. He fi­nally got a run on Davis but lapped traffic caused Berry to slam on the brakes and Davis flew by again.

A quick yellow waved and on the restart Davis and Berry again separated from the field.  Berry gave it everything he had in the final set of turns but Davis was too strong and took the win.

Berry was a very close second and Dale Neitzel climbed all the way to third after a thrilling first lap. Finishing fourth was Meirhofer and fifth was Kenny Baumann.
