The IRWIN Racing driver finished second behind Jamie Whincup, equalling his career-best finish from Hidden Valley in 2009.
After copping flack last year for under performing, Davison resisted naming his knockers, knowing he still has more to prove with the Stone Brothers Racing team.
“I've still got plenty to prove – this is one result,” he said.
“I want to build a championship and get to a point where we get tpo the front every weekend.
“When we achieve that, we can put some of that criticism to rest and shut a few of those guys up.”
Davison's second place result comes after a strong race for Stone Brothers Racing, with all three of its cars finishing in the top five.
