Justyn Cox Sixth at Placerville Speedway During Mark Forni Classic Tune Up

 PETERSEN MEDIA: With C&M Motorsports idle due to the birth of their new son, Daniel, Justyn Cox took the Cox Family Racing No. 31c machine to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night and picked up a sixth place finish.

“Cody and Mandi had their baby boy last week, so they stayed home and hung out with him, and I send them all the best,” Cox said. “As a father, nothing is better than spending time with your newborn. We took the family car out to help dial Jesse back in for this week when he comes back. Since both cars are identical it was good for me to race, and for Rod to try some things.”

Timing the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/MDW Sports backed No. 31c machine in ninth fastest in qualifying time trials, Cox would find himself on the front row of his heat race.

Slipping back to second as he chased after Kalin Henry, Cox would hang his right rear over the edge of the exit of turn two and he would spin wildly up the exit ramp and bring out the caution.

Able to restart, Cox would showcase a strong entry underneath him as he was able to rebound to a third-place finish and transfer directly into the feature event.

Lining up 11th in the feature event, pre-race track prep left the surface extremely fast for the opening stanza. Biding him time in the Top-10 as he waited for the track to blow off, Cox would come alive in the later stages of the race.

Able to move around during their second half of the race, Cox would work his way up to sixth, where he would go on to finish.

“It is a lot of fun to go out and race with the family team as I don’t get to as much now that I have picked up some rides,” Cox said. “The family team is what got me to this point, and I am thankful for them as much as I am thankful for the people who give me a shot in their cars. Hopefully this weekend helps Jesse Love and Rod as they get ready to run four nights.”
