Justyn Cox Charges to Top-5 During Bill Brownell Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Silver Dollar Speedway over the weekend for the track’s Spring Nationals, Justyn Cox and C&M Motorsports would charge to a fifth place finish on Friday night during the Bill Brownell Memorial, before a mechanical issue hampered them during Saturday’s David Tarter Memorial.

“We had really good speed all weekend long against 61 cars,” Justyn Cox said. “Friday night we just ended up in a bad start with the way the format went with the car count, and on Saturday we just had some bad luck with a part end our night early.”

Opening the weekend up on Friday night, Cox would time the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber, Inc./Lund Construction backed entry in fourth fastest in his qualifying group before a second-place finish in heat race competition transferred him directly into the feature event.

Missing out on the Dash, Cox would find himself 16th on the starting grid for the 25-lap feature event. With much of the field using the cushion in the “A”, Cox would take a liking to the bottom groove as he sliced and diced his way forward.

With a few stoppages in the feature setting up double-file restarts, Cox would capitalize as he would continue to work his way towards the Top-5.

Getting into sixth by the 10th lap, Cox’s charge would stall out a touch as he would fall back to eighth in the race’s closing laps. Able to get going in the final five laps of the race, Cox would take over the fifth spot on the 22nd marker and close his charge out with a fifth-place finish.

Saturday night saw 61 cars check back in for the David Tarter Memorial that would be sanctioned by the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, and Cox would time in fifth fastest in his group on this night and be in a bit of an early hole.

With a fast car underneath, him in heat race action, paired with a little good fortune, Cox would race his way from fifth to a second-place finish and also earn a berth in the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Winning Dash No. 2, Cox would line up on the outside of the front row for the 35-lap feature event.

Jumping out to the early lead, Cox would lose the top spot to Justin Sanders on the third lap as he would slip back to third. As the laps clicked off, Cox would begin to notice an issue with his steering, as his car started to become difficult to maneuver.

As the laps continued to click off, the problem continued to worsen before finally giving out the on the race’s 18thlaps and ending Cox’s night.

“We were really bummed something in our front end broke in the feature, because we really had a fast car in the Dash and at the start of the ‘A’,” Cox said. “It was great to be up front against a stout field of cars, and I am looking forward to trying again this weekend. I am having a blast with Cody and Mandi, and really do appreciate this opportunity, and their continued support.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Barry Lumber, Inc., Lund Construction, Anrak, Legacy Specialties, Inc. PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: Cox will pilot his family car in Chico, CA on Friday night before returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with C&M Motorsports.
