PETERSEN MEDIA: Friday night, Justyn Cox and his Cox Racing team headed to the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA for a night of 410ci racing. Taking on the local stars and cars, Cox was able to score an eighth place finish, as he eyes a big weekend at the speedway this coming weekend.
“We are getting better each time out in the 410, and if it wasn’t for a bonehead move on my part, we would have had a Top-Five finish on Friday night, “ Cox explained.
Timing the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/Trex backed No. 31c machine in eighth fastest, Cox would outduel Andy Forsberg in heat race action to race his way to the win, and earn a spot in the night’s redraw.
Pulling the six pill, Cox would line up in the third row for the race, and as things came to life, he swiftly got around Sean Becker to crack the Top-Five, as he then began his pursuit of Mason Moore who ran ahead of him and in the fourth spot.
A couple of restarts during the night would bunch the field back up, but restarts were tough on Cox, as he battled a tight racecar, and couldn’t take advantage. As he continued to run in the fifth spot, the race’s final restart would take it’s toll on the Clarksburg, CA driver as he got up over the cushion, and lost a few spots, as he slipped back to the eighth spot, where he would go on to finish.
“We had a way better car than our eighth place finish shows, but I pushed the envelope too much on the final restart,” Cox added. “My guys have been doing a great job of working with me to get me even more comfortable in the 410, and I really thank them, as well as my family for all of their continued support.”
