PETERSEN MEDIA: Looking for a good night to kick off his 2017 season, Justyn Cox would have a suspension failure take place just prior to going green on Saturday night.
“It was kind of a bummer deal on Saturday night since we were lining up on the front row of the feature event, but weird stuff tends to happen during opening night,” Justyn Cox said. “The car felt good all night, and I think it was a nice shake down.”
Timing the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/Trex backed No. 31c in 12th fastest in qualifying time trials, the Clarksburg, CA native would take care of business in his heat race and record the win.
By way of his win, Cox would move into the top-eight redraw where the two pill would place him on the front row for the 25-lap Toller Memorial feature event.
Taking a quick warm up lap before lining up, Cox would feel something go south in the suspension of his car, and it visually did not look right. Going into the work area, it was deemed a terminal issue, and Cox’s night would come to a close just like that.
“I felt the car lay over during a warm up lap, and when we got into the work area we opted to head back to the trailer and see what the issue was,” Cox said. “We were able to find the culprit which is good, and now we can focus on our next race which is the Mini Gold Cup. We have a new GF1 Chassis we are going to try, and I am really looking forward to that.”
The Cox Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Trex, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, LRB, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, EyeLusions, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2017!
2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-1, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-0
ON TAP: Cox will be in action this Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA during the annual Mini Gold Cup.
