PDRA 2024 North vs. South Shootout – Pro Extreme Motorcycle Class Results

The PDRA North vs. South Shootout took place this past Friday and Saturday at the Maryland International Raceway, showcasing thrilling performances in the Pro Extreme Motorcycle class.

Elimination Results

For the second year in a row, third-generation Pro Extreme Motorcycle rider Brayden Davis delivered a Father’s Day weekend victory for his father and crew chief, multi-time world champion Travis Davis. The younger Davis lined up with two-time and reigning world champion Chris Garner-Jones in the final round, where Davis cut a .016 reaction time and charged to a 3.975 at 177.02 to take out Garner-Jones and his 3.959 at 179.14 on a holeshot.

“To win on Father’s Day weekend last year and do it again this weekend is special,” said Davis, who thanked Timblin Chassis, Maxx ECU, DTM Performance, Worldwide Bearings, Monster Race Products, Stuart Crane with Warpspeed Racing, Davis Transport, and McCarty Auto Parts. “I like showing just how hard my dad works. He’s the tuner. He builds the motors. He gets me to the races. All I do is ride. Dad’s really the mastermind of this team.

“We struggled through the hottest part of the day,” Davis added. “The track was real greasy and really challenged my riding skills earlier. I knew when the sun went down, we could lay a number down. Going .97 in the final was pretty good. There’s a lot left in it. We just misjudged the tune-up, but I did my job on the starting line and that got us the win.”

Brayden Davis

The No. 2 qualified Davis kicked off eliminations with a huge holeshot advantage over Jean Gosselin, and it paid off as they both recorded 4.108-second passes. Davis crossed the finish line at 175.64 MPH on his nitrous-fed bike, while Gosselin was going 184.02 on his turbocharged bike when he crossed behind Davis. Davis was away first again in the semifinals against veteran rider and tuner Ashley Owens. Davis and his 4.031 at 176.74 got the win over Owens and his 4.054 at 177.91.

Garner-Jones qualified fourth on his nitrous-assisted T.T. Jones Racing Hayabusa to set up a marquee matchup with fellow multi-time world champion Eric McKinney in the first round. The two left the line with nearly identical reaction times, but it was Garner-Jones ahead at the finish line with his 4.079 at 177.02 to McKinney’s 4.086 at 177.14. It was a side-by-side race off the starting line in the semis as well when Garner-Jones and No. 1 qualifier Brunson Grothus both cut .044 reaction times. Garner-Jones stepped up when he needed to, laying down a 4.043 at 175.91 to beat Grothus and his 4.045 by two thousandths of a second.
