The first two weeks in March are beginning to look like some of the best Door Slammer racing in recent history. Recently Wes Buck, Drag Illustrated Founder and WSOPM promoter announced that the DH Davies Factory Stock Classic is the latest class to join the 2023 Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod.
The Factory Stock Classic joins the $25,000-to-win $hameless Racing Mountain Motor Pro Stock Invitational presented by Seminole Paving, the Xtreme Front Wheel Drive Challenge, and the main event of 32 qualified Pro Mod drivers.
The Factory Stock competitors will be invited to race for $15,000 winner’s purse in the DH Davies Factory Stock Classic. The invitation-only race will feature backing from Davies, a well-known and respected Factory Stock competitor, as well as associate sponsorship support from HemiTunerPerformance.com, Warren Walcher’s Pine Country and Wesley Motorsports.
The DH Davies Factory Stock Classic competitors will have two qualifying sessions on Friday and two qualifying sessions on Saturday. The races will race for the big money on Sunday before a packed house of fans from all over the country.
Buck said, “Adding the inaugural Factory Stock Classic to an already packed lineup for the World Series of Pro Mod, in my opinion, really puts this event over the top, These small-tire, stock-appearing cars produce some of the most incredible on-track action that exists in drag racing today. I also love the involvement and enthusiasm around this style of drag racing from America’s major auto manufacturers. Factor in that these cars are driven by some of the best racers in our sport today from multiple sanctions and series – it’s just a perfect fit, and we couldn’t be more excited.”
The Factory Stock Classic category will feature invited drivers competing for one of the 16 qualifying spots and the inaugural title at Bradenton Motorsports Park, March 3-5.
The class will follow utilize rules similar to those used by other Factory Stock classes.
On the heels of the World Series of Pro Mod, racing continues a few hours up I-75 for the 54th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway on March 9-12.
DragRacingActionOnline will be on hand to provide daily updates from both Florida events.
