Pro Nitrous standout Jay Cox spun together the ultimate comeback story on Sunday as he drove his recently repaired Bryant Industrial Crane & Rigging Camaro to the final round win over Lizzy Musi. Just a few weeks ago at the PDRA North-South Shootout in Maryland, Cox sustained a high-speed wreck that required extensive repairs to his Rick Jones-built race car.
“This win was so gratifying,” Cox said. “We’re beat up and tired from working three weeks straight, putting in 90-hour weeks just to get here. Being able to get the win just makes it all worthwhile.”
Cox started eliminations from the fourth spot and ran a 3.814 to eliminate Jim Sackuvich’s 3.849 first round. Sunday morning’s cooler conditions allowed Cox to turn up the wick on his Charlie Buck-built powerplant to the tune of a 3.784 to beat “Stevie Fast” Jackson, who was in the race as an alternate. Cox lowered the boom again for the semifinals, where he fired off a 3.764 against Tommy Franklin’s 3.814. The Smithfield, North Carolina driver ran a strong 3.787 in the final round against Lizzy Musi, but Cox won the race on the starting line as Musi ran a quicker 3.768 at 203.43.
“We weren’t really having a staging battle,” Cox said of the two drivers taking their time to stage. “I just go up to the starting line and do whatever I feel. It just happens that she didn’t want to go in and I didn’t really feel like going in either. It was nothing personal, we were just having a little fun.”
“I want to thank Rick Jones and JJ at RJ Race Cars for everything they did to get me back out here, as well as Bryant (Marriner) for getting behind me when we tore the car up. My main crew guy, Dennis, took a whole week off from work and spent every minute of every day with me for the last two weeks getting everything sorted out. Charlie Buck also helps me out with the horsepower.”
