Davises win at nationals

Posted: Wednesday, March 25, 2009

A pair of Soldotna siblings continue to shine on the national stage.

Cory and Carly Davis both won season titles with impressive finishes in the final races of their respective seasons this past weekend in the International Series of Champions AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series at Mountaintop Ski Resort in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Cory Davis finished second on Saturday in the Semi-Pro Super Stock final, earning him the year-end season points championship. Carly Davis, meanwhile, won the Pro Women's title on Sunday after winning the season's final race.

Cory Davis, who won the first round's fourth heat in qualifying for the final, at one time led the pack before Christian Salemark passed him and eventually held on for the win in the final race of the season.

Davis' goal entering the race was to beat Semi-Pro Open championship winner Tim Tremblay and claim the season title. He did that, as Tremblay crossed the finish line third.

"Coming into the final I knew where I was at in the point chase," Davis told isocracing.com following the race. "I was thinking about the championship the entire time I was out there. I was so nervous and Christian was so fast, I just wanted to stay clean."

Carly Davis placed first in the opening round's first heat, edging Michelle Lemieux of Vermont. She then topped Lemieux again in the final, while JC Hupe took third.

Cory and Carly Davis are the children of eight-time Tesoro Iron Dog snowmachine race champion Scott Davis.
