Tough Opener To Cox’s Trip


PETERSEN MEDIA: Making his way back to Nebraska, and Iowa to compete in the upcoming Knoxville Nationals, Justyn Cox’s trip got off to a rough start this past week as mechanical issues troubled him much of the time.

“To get back here and have mechanical issues is definitely frustrating, but I am glad it happened the week before the Nationals,” Cox explained.

Going to battle with the ASCS National Series on Thursday night in Greenwood, NE, Cox would have issues under his hood lining up for his heat race, and be relegated to the night’s B Main.

Changing engines, Cox would make the call for the night’s semi, but something was still amiss mechanically bringing Cox’s night to an early end.

Getting issues ironed out for Friday’s action, Cox would move from sixth to fourth in his heat putting the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/Trex backed No. 31c machine in the seventh row of the feature event.

In the feature event, Cox would again have issues under the hood of his machine, and his night would come to a close on the first lap. Upon going through the engine it was discovered that a plug wire was broken, and the team would move on to the Knoxville Raceway.

Checking in a the famous ½ mile facility to get some laps for the upcoming Knoxville Nationals, the Clarksburg, CA driver would time the PM Truck Repair/Konnected/STL No. 31 machine in 23rd quickest.

Lining up on the front row of his heat alongside Knoxville ace, Clint Garner, Cox would finish in the second position and safely transfer into the 18-lap feature event.

Lining up in the 10th row for the A-Main, Cox would get off to a nice start as he ran some smooth laps and worked his way into the Top-15. As the race came to a close, Cox would get stuck behind another competitor blowing a tire as they came to the checkered, and he would lose a number of spots as he fell back to 23rd as the finish line.

“It was a very trying couple of nights,” Cox added. “I think it was a very good test to our team, and hopefully this week we have some luck on our side and we have a good showing during the 360 Nationals. It has been a dream of mine to get my own team back here, and I am very thankful to everyone that has made this possible.”
