PETERSEN MEDIA: After a whirlwind couple of weeks trying to get his hauler and equipment back from Las Vegas, NV, Justyn Cox and his Cox Racing team were in action three times over the last weekend, including two more nights of World of Outlaws competition.
“We had some really good speed with our 410ci package, and we were all really happy with how things went,” Cox said. “I made some mistakes as a driver, but had a blast.”
Spending his Saturday and Sunday night in Stockton, CA, Cox timed his Berco Berry Redwood Lumber/STL/College Cyclery machine in eighth fastest during both nights of action.
Saturday night in his heat race, Cox moved into the second spot and chased after DJ Netto. Looking to take the top spot from Netto, Cox would finish in the second spot putting him safely in the feature event.
Lining up in the sixth row for the main event, Cox held his own with some of the business as he battled for a Top-10 during much of the feature event. As the track continued to slick off as the race went on, Cox began battling a loose race car, and dropped a couple of positions.
“We started to get really loose on exit, and that made it tough to keep our spot, and we slowly dropped a couple of spot,” he added.
Lining up in the seventh row for a late race restart, Cox would slip back to 16th, where he would go on to finish.
After timing in eighth quickest again on Sunday night, Cox would slip back to sixth at the start of his heat race, but would work the slick Stockton Dirt Track to get back by Chris Martin to take the fifth at final transfer spot to the feature event.
Lining up 12th in the main event, Cox would battle with Carson Macedo in the opening stages of the race, as the pair of California drivers battled mid-pack.
With cautions plaguing the second half of the race, restarts did not go Cox’s way, as he slipped back to 16th for the second night in a row.
“I feel like we had a better car than our results show, but the driver needs to get better on restarts,” he said. “After getting involved in a wreck on Friday night with the Civil War Series, it was nice to have two decent nights with the World of Outlaws. I really have to thank Rod Tiner for letting us use his truck, and all of my guys and my family for their help and support. I also want to wish Kyle Riley a speedy recovery as he is having a procedure this week, and will have to step away from our race team for a few weeks.”
The Cox Racing team would like to thank Berco Berry Redwood Lumber, PM Truck Repair, LRB, JRI Shocks, Konnected, Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, JRD Endeavors, VSR, ART, Axcel Race Suits, SafRacer.Com, K&N Performance, Justice Brothers, Cheetah IV Racing, E-ST Garage, Worton Designs, Manzer Motorsports, and Tim’s Hot Rod Shop for their support in 2015!
