Justin Davis' introduction into the world of drag racing started at the early age of six. Accompanied by his father he frequented drag races wide eyed and fervent. Justin's exposure to the sport broaden at the age of eight when he was introduced to the world of top fuel funny cars by Ashley Force. He quickly became enamored with funny cars thanks to the John Force family. Encouraged by John Force's success and family's involvement in the sport Justin's love for the sport continued to thrive.
While in school Justin excelled in the sport of baseball playing for a period of twelve years. As a pitcher Justin garnered and fine tuned a high level of competitiveness, focus, stamina, physical conditioning and commitment. "Had I not been involved in a promising baseball career fulltime I would have pursued racing at an earlier age" Justin stated. Regardless, he continued to be involved in the realm of motor sports and at the age of fourteen started a business in which he built, marketed and sold customized golf carts.
After high school Justin decided to wholeheartedly pursue his true passion, drag racing. In November of 2005 he obtained his Super Comp Dragster's license. Remarkably, in less than a year Justin was nominated Super Comp Rookie of the Year, an honor rarely earned within such as short time. Since then Justin's accomplishments have continued to escalate and include being a division seven finalist in the 2007 Las Vegas NHRA Super Comp event.
Justin attributes his rapid successes to his involvement with Tom Bayer. While traveling with Tom for two years across county Justin gained invaluable knowledge and experience and a high level of respect for both the sport and its drivers.
Due to his integrity, hard work and driving presence over the last few years Justin gained substantial recognition in the industry. Within a short period of time, his recognition rose to a level where he was offered several opportunities to enter into Alcohol Dragster Racing.
In August 2007 Justin was approached by Impatience Racing and offered the opportunity to drive their Top Alcohol Dragster. In March 2008 Justin and Impatience Racing started their rigorous four week regime of testing. Justin's first race as Impatience Racing's Top Alcohol Dragster driver was in May 2008 in Mission, BC. One week later he participated in his first National Top Alcohol Dragster event in Topeka, KA.
Throughout 2008 Justin and Impatience Racing continued to excel. Justin was a Top Alcohol Dragster Semi Finalist in Fallon, NV and awarded the Lucas Oil NHRA Northwestern 2008 Rookie Driver of The Year.
In early 2009 Justin and Impatience Racing won the Top Alcohol Dragster Class at the 10th Annual NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Today, Justin continues to race both Super Comp and Top Alcohol Dragster. However, his uultimate goal is to drive Top Fuel Dragster and compete in the professional arena while reaching speeds of 300 MPH.
