To have a winning season while gaining more experience to grow into a professional racer. Promotion of sponsors and motorcycle racing is a top priority. Blake does this through social networking, maintaining a professional track presence and website, staying active on social media, and motorcycle forums. Of course, top place finishes are his goal to bring attention as well.
Blake has been in love with motorcycles ever since he rode his first one around the yard when he was 3 years old. At 4 years old he raced in a couple local motocross races. At 5 years old, in 2012, he won the Birch Creek Riders Club Stadium MX Series for 50cc junior.
At 6 Years old, in 2013, Blake started racing on paved tracks. He raced and won Virginia International Raceway’s (VIR) Supermoto Series in 2013. He also raced Supermoto East Coast (SMEC) series, and won the championship for 14 years old and under.
At 8 years old, in 2015, Blake won the VIR Supermoto Series and began racing mini classes with the adults; where he has many podium finishes which include races at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA, Herrin Compound in Dublin Ga, U.S. Air International Raceway in Shawano, Wi, Circuit Mecaglisse in Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci, QC, Cananda, Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL and even at the WERA- GNF.
Two thousand sixteen was a big year! Blake competed in WERA races but only in the Mini & Grom Classes. Then, July 23, 2016 he turned 10, had a big party at the Herrin Compound with his racing family and was now allowed to race his big bike with WERA! So, in August he debuted on his Honda RS85 & RS125 won his races, qualified for the Grand National Finals earning two 2nd place finishes there. Then, after the season was over was congratulated by WERA and informed that they had moved him up to the Expert Class.
His first full season competing as an Expert with WERA was busy. He competed in 146 races and was on the podium 87 times in 2017! He focused mostly on his Honda RS125 but also competed on his Honda Grom and tried out his dad’s Yamaha R3. Along with multiple regional championships; Blake was the 2017 F2 National Champion.
Blake slowed down and took the time to really focus on mastering the Yamaha R3. He still was on the podium at every race weekend and won the points in all the classes he entered. Again, through WERA, Blake finished with multiple regional championships. Blake was humbled when his school featured him in a two page spread in their yearbook. The highlight of the year was when the American Motorcycle Association recognized Blake as Youth Road Racer of the Year. We attended the American Motorcycle Association banquet in Ohio where he accepted his award.
In addition to racing
Blake has been a Honor Roll student every year since he started school. According to his teachers he is a noticeable leader in his classes. Blake is also involved with the youth group at his church. He is polite and sociable which, is why older adults in his church and neighborhood enjoy the time Blake takes to visit and talk with them.
Blake will represent Kids at MotoAmerica in MotoAmerica’s Fan Zone in 2019 and continue training at the Herrin Compound. He will be focusing on his Kawasaki Ninja 400 as he competes with WERA in three different expert classes.
Competing in this sport would not possible without the support of his sponsors. Some of his sponsors have been with him from the beginning and others are new this year. Please click here to learn more about the products Blake Davis Racing, LLC uses on and off the track.
