PLACERVILLE, Claif. – C&M Motorsports has signed Justyn Cox to chase two sprint car championships next season.
“I can’t even begin to say how excited, and thankful; I am to wheel the No. 7c fulltime in 2020,” Cox said. “We were able to get one night of racing in together at the end of this year, and I could tell this was a team I wanted to compete for. We have been talking the last few weeks, and everything came together, and it worked really well for both myself, Cody and Mandi.”
The team will have two main goals in 2020. The first will be to compete full-time at Placerville in pursuit of the track championship. While Cox ran a hit and miss schedule at Placerville in 2019, C&M Motorsports finished third in owner points after having various drivers compete for them.
Second will be to contest the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards Title, a series that the team has had perfect attendance with in its first three years of existence.
“Mandi, and I are super pumped to work with Justyn Cox in 2020 and to go after these two championships together,” team co-owner Cody Geaney said. “He has been extremely fast, and successful over the last few years, and things went really well when he ran our car back in November. We are busy getting ready for the season ahead, and I can’t wait for Justyn, MF, and myself to get going.”
Aside from the two points chases, C&M Motorsports will also fill their schedule with various open shows at the end of the season, as well as other events they see fit once schedules are announced later this winter.
“I am looking forward to working with Cody, Mandi, and MF, as we chase these titles and wins,” Cox said. “I am also looking forward to welcoming back Berco as a marketing partner in 2020. They have been a great partner of mine, and I am excited to have them with me at C&M Motorsports as well as on the family car. Aside from the busy schedule in the No. 7c, the plan is to still fill in some open dates in the Cox Family Racing car during some Friday shows in Chico, Calif., as well some KWS events and possibly a few Outlaw shows. 2020 is shaping up to be a fun year, and again, I cannot thank C&M Motorsports and their team enough for believing in me.”
