About Mitchell Davis Racing

The Origin

The Origin

The Mitchell Davis Racing team is a new part of the already existing Davis Zoo Racing a family owned and operated race team. DZR started in 2000 as a novice quarter midget family with two boys Mitchell age 4 and Brett age 6. 2019 will mark our 19th consecutive year of competition. The cars and classes have changed through the years, but we remain a family operation with Mitchell still driving and Brett as one of the head mechanics.

The Vehicle

The current car driven at Mitchell ​Davis Racing is a Non Wing 410 Sprint Car. It is an Eagle chassis with an all aluminum -12 410 engine built by CJ Motorsports. The upcoming 2019 race season not only marks MDR's 3rd year of competition, but it also marks the 3rd year Driver/Owner Mitchell Davis will be behind the wheel of a sprint car. Mitchell also makes occasional appearances in DII Midgets for a variety of car owners.  DII midgets are open wheel racecars which utilize a regulation midget chassis paired with either a 1000cc motorcycle engine, or a 2.4 liter stock block automobile engine. As a team we are constantly working to evolve and refine our program to stay at the front of the pack.
