Cody Johncox Professional Debut - 2010


August 31, 2010
Haggerstown, Leamington, and Indy Races

Haggerstown, MD (AMA Pro Race)

After doing well in York, Pa the weekend prior my family and I decided to give Haggerstown a try.  This would be my first Pro Race back since i got hurt at Lima.  It took some adjusting to tune the bike for this track it was a clay half mile and I never really rode one before.  I ended up qualifying 15th out of 44 riders and I felt very confident.   In the heat I soon learned that the track had changed and I needed to make some changes also.  I had to be in the top 7 positions to go directly to the main.  I was in the back and it took me a few laps to figure out what I had to do to get to the front.  Unfortunatly I neede an other lap and I finished 8th.  I had to go to a semi.  We made some changes went to the semi.  I had pole position, but I didn't get a good start and went backwards befor going forwards.  I finished 5th, not making it to the main.  My dad and dicused what could have been done to improve my ridig and the bike and I am sure i will be ready next year.

Leamington, Ont. (CMA Race)

This is a nice stone dust half mile one which I have done well in the past.  The weekend started with a lot of rain, to much rain and they postponed the race until Sunday.  Sunday I went out in practice to trysomething new, it worked in York so i wanted to try it here.  Neddles to say it didn't work here so i had to change my set up again.  I ran two classes the 450 Expert and Open Expert.  I only had my 2010 Yamaha 450 to run both classes and at this track frame bikes do well but i felt my bike would work pretty good. I got 2nd in the 450 heat and 6th in the Open heat. all day I had bad starts and the finals were no different.  The track was really wet especially in the Open final.  I ended up 8th in the 450 and 11th in the Open.

Indy Mile (AMA Pro Race)

Last weekend I went to Indy.  I couldn't wait to ride this track.  I only have ridden two diferent mile tracks, DeQuoin and Sprinfield.  The track was nice but a little tricky.  I had my best qualifing so far this year, qualifying 11th.  I finished 6the in my heat behide several of the top ranked Pros and this sent me directly to the main event. After some bike adjustments I was ready for the final.  I had a great start, (my dad and worked on strts all week after Leamington).  I rode mid pack most of the race and finished 11th.  Overall it was a good weekend.

Labor Day weekend I go back to Sprinfield, Ill to ride the Mile again and the short track.  This will be my first Pro short track.  Thanks to all my sponsors for all their help.

York, PA Half Mile

This past week I got clearance from my doctors so off we went to York, Pa Half Mile to see what I could do.  It felt great getting back on the race track.  York is a stone dust half mile, my favorite.  I ran two classes the 450 stock fram and the 450expert.  

I won both heats putting me in great shape for the finals.  In the 450 Expert I got cut off at the start putting me back to to 9th and becuase the were running out of time they cut the laps from 8 to 4.  This didn't leave me much time to do something.  By the last lap I was right next to the forth place rider with only leading me by a few inches.  I finished fifth behind Corey Crawfor, Tim Eades, Ron Wood and Don Mullon. 

In the 450 stock frame final I was secon off the line, Corey Crawford fell and they had a restart.  In the restart I got the hole shot and tried to ride a smooth race and ended out ahead with a win. 

It looks like I am back in the saddle and will be racing all month,  This weekend I will be going to Haggerstown, MD with my first pro race back since the injury.  Then off to Leamington, Ont, The Indy Mile and finally Springfield, Il.
