Dawsonville, Ga. native Spencer Davis is optimistic heading into NASCAR’s annual throwback weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway hoping to surge in the spotlight carry iconic colors in Friday night’s LiftKits4Less.com 200. 

Davis and his family-owned Spencer Davis Motorsports team will pay tribute to NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip in the eighth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race of the 2021 season.

Davis’s No. 11 Toyota Tundra will adorn the paint scheme utilized by the former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner and driver campaigned during the 2004 NCWTS season at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway Park, respectively. 

“Darrell Waltrip has done so much for NASCAR throughout his storied career both on and off the track, I only saw it fitting that we pay tribute to him this weekend at Darlington,” said Davis. “The truck looks fantastic, and I hope that we’re able to make him and all of his race fans proud carrying this iconic paint scheme on Friday night.”
Waltrip, a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion made 55 career starts at Darlington, collecting five wins, 18 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes at the 1.366-mile oval. 

Davis, 22, will make his NCWTS Darlington debut Friday night under the lights in the LiftKits4Less.com 200 – but hopes to deliver a performance that would be a reminiscence of Waltrip’s success at the track dubbed “Too Tough To Tame.” 

“Honestly, I don’t really know what to expect,” added Davis. “You can prepare yourself with simulator time and even iRacing – but nothing beats actual track time. I have also been studying film and video to try and prepare myself as best as I can and hopefully all of the analysis will pay off. 

“We just have to see how that first stage goes and hopefully we keep making gains throughout the race. Obviously, Kansas didn’t go as we had hoped, but we learned a lot. If we can continue to learn though and keep making steps in the right direction, there’s no reason to get discouraged. 

“I’m optimistic for my first shot at Darlington that we can come out with a top-20 finish. Anything above that would be huge for us and definitely give us some momentum for Circuit of the Americas in a few weeks.”

“Excited to have a long-time friendship turn into a season-long partnership with INOXSupreme Lubricants,” said Davis. “I can’t thank Angel and James at INOX enough for their continued support and partnership with our small team. 

“We use their products day to day on our race team and in our machines at our business. A quality product and amazing people helped bring this all together.”
