The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series would have been lesser if it hadn’t been for the likes of Bill Davis Racing. A full-time entrant in the Sprint Cup, the team car is driven by Dave Blaney.
Formed by a truck rental owner Bill Davis, a former motocross racer, Bill Davis Racing got adequate help from business partner and friend, Julian Martin. This support helped Bill to develop his son Mark’s ASA racing Programme. Martin signed with J. D. Stacey and that saw Bill take a sabbatical from the sport. But he returned to hire Martin for his Busch Series race car and with sponsorship from the Carolina Ford Dealers, he ran 15 races. In 1990, the team moved to North Carolina along with Davis. His wife, Gail, stayed back in Arkansas to oversee the trucking operations.
The team runs three full-time entries in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for Mike Skinner, Scott Speed and Johnny Benson. The team has always run Toyota stock cars and trucks in both the Sprint Cup series as well as the Craftsman Truck Series. They have had previous backing from other manufacturers like Dodge, Ford and Pontiac.
