Beginnings

BDR was formed by then-truck rental owner Bill Davis, who himself was a former motocross racer. Davis helped his friend and business partner Julian Martin develop his son Mark's ASA racing program. When Martin signed with J.D. Stacy, Davis took a break from racing, but the call of the racetrack still lured him, and before he knew it, he hired Martin to drive his Busch Series car for 15 races with sponsorship from Carolina Ford Dealers. In 1990, Davis moved the team to North Carolina while his wife Gail stayed in Arkansas to oversee the trucking operation.

NEXTEL Cup

Car #22 History

Upon arriving in Carolina, Davis was asked by the Ford Motor Company to hire an up-and-coming driver from the Midwest named Jeff Gordon. Gordon won the NASCAR Busch Series Rookie of the Year in 1991, and won 11 pole positions the next year. Davis was hoping to move Gordon and crew chief Ray Evernham to the Winston Cup series, but they were lured away by Rick Hendrick. Davis still moved up to the Cup series full time in 1993 however, with Bobby Labonte driving who finished runner up to Jeff Gordon for Rookie of the Year driving the #22 Maxwell House Ford. After 1994, Labonte left for Joe Gibbs Racing and MBNA replaced Maxwell House as sponsor, and the team traded engines and chassis with Penske Racing. Davis switched to Pontiac. (Penske switched from Pontiac to Ford). Originally, Davis went with another rookie and Busch Series standout Randy LaJoie to drive the car. Midway through the year, LaJoie was fired from the team and was replaced by a series of rotating drivers including Wally Dallenbach who finished 2nd at Watkins Glen.

They didn't win again until 2000 when he was the winner at the spring Darlington race, and took home the trophy for the 2002 Daytona 500. With several races to go in a disappointing 2003 season, Burton bolted to Haas CNC Racing, and was replaced with Davis's Busch driver Scott Wimmer. Wimmer raced full-time in 2004, finished 3rd in the first race of his rookie season. Some fans have even stated that the team is too underfunded to compete in the sport, even though it has won 4 races over the past decade. Surprisingly, in late 2005, BDR announced it would part ways with Wimmer at the end of the year. Dave Blaney, who previously drove the #93 for BDR, was tapped to drive the #22 beginning with the 2006 season. He had two top-tens and finished 26th in the standings, and recently won the pole for the Lenox Tools 300 race in New Hampshire the first pole for Toyota in the NEXTEL Cup Series.

Despite running a limited schedule, Benson finished 25th in points. Benson became the full-time driver in 2005, and had six top-fives en route to a tenth place points finish. Benson went on to collect five wins during the 2006 season with additional backing from Exide Batteries and finished runner-up to Todd Bodine for the championship. 360 OTC will sponsor the 23 for ten races during the 2007 season.

Steve Park drove the #67 South Padre Island entry in a pair of races towards the end of the year following his release from Orleans Racing. His best finish was 16th at Texas. In 2006, A. J.

Bill Davis Racing (2239 words)
However, his racing roots literally grew from the dirt … on dirt tracks that is, as he raced sprint cars throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania and beyond.
