Davids' previous pair of second place results combined with victory in the series' penultimate contest puts him just 20 points ahead of Juarez who has won both of the 2012 Pro UET events he has entered. Eric Bostrom (Westlake Village, Calif./Team Sho-Air-Specialized) also remains in striking distance headed into the July 21 showdown in Snowmass, Colo.
