GreenArmy Motorsports Debut Pro-2 Trophy Truck Team at NDRA South Point Vegas 250
Race teams are formed from a myriad of different circumstances. Some teams are formed when a group of racing buddies decide to take their Saturday tradition to the next level. Others teams are formed when an amateur racer decide it’s time for their shot at the big money lime light. Team GreenArmy Motorsports however, was formed when recognized race champion Kevin Davis decided to step out of the driver seat to put his son Justin behind the wheel.
“I have been around an off-road vehicle for as long as I can remember. My dad started racing before I was born.” Justin explained. “When I was able to race at fourteen, I raced with my sister Ashley in a 1600 car. Since then, I’ve kept moving up in cars and classes, and now I’m at the top, in a Jimco Trophy Truck.”
Before he started outperforming his Trophy Truck competitors in the LOORS Pro-2 division, Justin competed in MDR, Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, Best in the Desert, SCORE International and HDRA. His hard work lead to winning the 2010 SCORE Lites Championship, 2011 SCORE Class One Championship, becoming the youngest driver to win a Class One Championship back-to-back in the Baja 1000, and at age 18, becoming the youngest driver to win the Baja 1000 as a solo Trophy Truck driver.
“Using K&N products allows us the capability to enhance our Trophy Truck and run at a level that we need to be at, to compete with other top racers in the field,” Justin tells us. “I got involved with K&N by using their products through the years.” His trust in K&N was developed from experience with the product over the years.
Justin Davis, new team member Kyle LeDuc, and GreenArmy Motorsports packed up their Pro-2 Trophy Truck, and traveled to Jean, Nevada, for the NDRA South Point Vegas 250. The team was excited to debut their new Trophy Truck team for the 2013 HDRA and SCORE International Series. Justin started the race in seventh position, but half way through the race, he passed the wheel to Kyle, who skillfully drove the GreenArmy Motorsports Trophy Truck to a fourth place finish.
