Owner, Swan Racing
CEO, Swan Energy
Brandon Davis is the upstart owner of Swan Racing. He bought the race team in 2012 proclaiming, “Swan Racing is here to race competitively every week, the days of parking are over. I am confident that we are putting together the personnel to one day produce a championship contender.”
Davis went right to work hiring veteran Shane Hmeil as the team competition director and former Dale Earnhardt, Jr confidant, Tony Eury, Jr as crew chief. Davis added quality people at the shop and the pit crew increasing the team from four employees to 22.
At the age of 33, Davis is as old school as they come. Born in Elk City, Oklahoma he’s spent his life in the oil and gas industry making his way from the oil fields to the boardroom. In 2004 Mr. Davis took a sales position at a small oil and gas company. His background, along with a strong family history of entrepreneurial spirit, propelled him through the ranks of various oil companies during the early stages of his career. He became a partner in his first oil company at the age of 27 and sole owner of his first company two years later at 29. Today he is CEO of Swan Energy.
Racing has been a big part of Davis’ life. His father raced semi-late and late model dirt cars on the NCRA circuit in the 80’s and campaigned a pro stock car around the rough and tumble dirt tracks of Oklahoma during the 90’s. Growing up, Brandon spent many late nights with his father prepping their cars for the Saturday night shows. When Brandon was old enough, he jumped behind the wheel of a dirt modified and never looked back.
As a dirt modified driver, he’s raced at tracks throughout the Midwest from Wisconsin to Arizona, Louisiana, and all points between. His passion is winning in all forms of the word, leading him to work 7 days a week in all aspects of his life to be the best he can.
Davis and Swan Energy support several charities including Boys & Girls Clubs, Denver 20-30, Outreachers, The Kempe Foundation, Keeping Kids on Track, Special Care, and Engineers Without Borders.
