AHRMA: Davis Sweeps Vintage Cup Races Again, At Gingerman Raceway

Davis Moves to Second Place in the AHRMA Vintage Cup Series Points Chase at GingerMan Raceway

(Elora, Tennessee) – Two weekends, plus four victories, multiplied by a unique big-twin Yamaha equals Jesse Davis.

Rounds 19 and 20 of the 2022 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Historic Cup Roadracing Series unfolded at GingerMan Raceway, in South Haven, MI, September 3 and 4 and for the second weekend in a row, Jesse Davis dominated the 2022 American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Vintage Cup.

The 2022 Vintage Cup, sponsored by RoadracingWorld.com, features the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class.  Davis, from Long Beach, CA, won both rounds on his 1982 Yamaha XV920R.

Logistics issues at the track resulted in the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class, originally scheduled for late in the program on Saturday, being run early Sunday morning.  This meant Davis, and the rest of the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight entrants would race twice on Sunday.

Davis led the first race from start to finish.  Current points leader, Jeremy Maddrill, from Steger, IL, on his 1979 Kawasaki KZ650 was second, Russell Jordan, from Williamsburg, OH rounded out the podium on his 1982 Honda CB900F.  George Hernandez, of Lutz, FL, took fourth on a 1977 Kawasaki KZ 650 and Matt Esterline from Portage, Michigan, riding a 1977 Honda CB750F came in fifth.

“One of the cool things about AHRMA is being able to race one bike in several classes,” said Brian Larrabure, 2022 Chair of the AHRMA Board of Trustees.  “But racing twice in the same class, on the same day, and winning twice, is impressive.”

In a replay of the Sunday morning race, Davis again took and held the lead Sunday afternoon with Maddrill on his wheel.   Davis held him off and took a second victory.  Maddrill and Jordan repeated their second and third place finishes.

The two wins elevated Davis to second place in the Vintage Cup Challenge, shrinking Maddrill’s lead, and bringing the championship within striking distance for Davis.

“I’m extremely stoked to get through another challenging weekend. I was able to holeshot and get away in both races despite just enough drizzle to make you nervous, and unpredictable lapped traffic. We should have a real showdown for the championship in Alabama!” shared Davis.

AHRMA will be at Talladega Gran Prix in Munford, AL, October 1 and 2, with the season finale scheduled the following weekend at the Barber Vintage Festival.

The Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class is sponsored by International CBX Owners Association (ICOA).
