Cody Johncox Professional Debut - 2010


September 26, 2010
Springfield Mile

Memorial weekend my familiy and I went back to Springfiled, Il  for the Mile And the Short Track. 

Day 1 would be the short track.  We decided to use my 2008 Yamaha 450.  We struggles all day with this bike.  during practice I tried a couple of things but it wasn't working.  Steve Beetie who works on my suspensions was there and said that I needed a stiffer spring than what I had so for the day we had to just tighten things uup the best we could and hope for the best.  I improved each practice and my times increased be in the end I qualified 33 and they only take 32 riders.  So It looks like this bike will be getting some suspention work done off season to make it competative.

Day 2 was the mile I wasn't sure how this day was going to play out since i woke up sick.  When i got on the track I felt better.  For the first practice the gearing was off.  The track was slower thna it was in the spring.  The second practice I felt pretty good and decided to go with this set up.  The last timed practice I worked on my drafting and that helped my time.   I qualified 10th fasted which put me on the front row for my heat.  The went ok I got a good start both times and at the end I got sucked into Mikey Martins draft and Iput me in 6th.  i fgot one positionback finishing in 5th which qualified me to go directly to the main with a ssecond row start.  For the main the track had a lot more rubber on it than earlier.  I got a great strart and was runing mid pack for about half the race, but then my bike started to buck uncontrollably in the apex of the corner.  I rode it out but the front wheel kept pushing.  I ended up finishing 14th and learning that I need a heavier spring for this bike also.  Looks like Steve has got some work to do this winter.  I want to thank him for being there and all his help both days.

Thanks to all my sponsors for all there help.  I will updating my pictures as sooon as I get them in.  For a preview go to flattrakfotos.com and clik on rider pages Expert/Pro then click on 96B Cody Johncox
