Cox Fights Through July 4th Adversity and Runs 5th at Placerville Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA: Snapping a rear axle while warming up for his heat race on Thursday night, Justyn Cox and his Cox Family Racing team thrashed to keep their night going and it worked out as Cox scored a fifth place finish.

“Man, I can’t thank everyone who helped us get the rear end swapped out,” Cox said. “We didn’t have  a whole lot of time since we were in a late heat, but we made the switch and had a pretty good run.”

Timing the MDW/Five Window Beer Company/Cranked Naturals backed No. 31c machine in seventh quickest in time trials, a snapped axle while warming up for his heat race would put Cox in the ‘B’.

Powering to the ‘B’ Main win, Cox would get his qualifying time back in the feature event as he took the green flag from the 11th starting position. On a slick Placerville Speedway that saw the bottom groove really dominate the night, Cox was able to slice and dice his way forward as he worked through the Top-10.

Continuing to battle his way forward, Cox would cap a hard fought 4th of July off with a fifth place finish.

“We got lucky  that it broke where it did and didn’t lead to a bigger wreck,” Cox said. “Again, thanks to everyone who came over and got their hands dirty and helped us out. Had a blast, and am looking forward to Speedweek this week.”

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, LRB, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2019!
