WCCB’s Brandon Davidow Wins Media Mayhem Drag Race

CONCORD, N.C. — WCCB’s Brandon Davidow walked away with a huge trophy and bragging rights after he won the second round of the 2014 Media Mayhem at the zMAX Dragway.  After two rounds of qualifying and a bracket-style elimination, Davidow had the best time.  

 “I’m so excited to take this home for WCCB,” Davidow said. “Last year I was lucky enough to win the bus race and I came in second here last year. So I just wanted this opportunity to go again and try to win it. It was just so much fun. Love racing here. This is great.”

Davidow earned the win in a photo-finish over WBTV’s Brandon Tomlin, posting a 15.328 second pass to Tomlin’s 15.364. Time Warner Cable News’ Matthew East earned the No. 1 qualifying spot with an event-low 15.087 second pass.

The third and find round of the 2014 Media Mayhem is scheduled for Oct. 2 and will feature go-kart racing on the infield road course at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway.
