Cody Johncox Professional Debut - 2010


July 24, 2013
Frederick and Haggertown Half Miles

The past few weeks of racing have been exciting.  I have been racing somewhere everyweekend between Canada, Ohio and Maryland.  In Maryland, I raced the Frederick Half Mile and Allstar Race, where I had a very sucessful day.  I won my heats in the 450Pro Class and the Pro twins race by several bike lengths, and after a bad start on the 450, I finished second by a half a tire.

A couple of days later was the GNC Race at Haggerstown, Md.  It was very hot and I struggled getting both bikes to work.  I didn't qualify well but I pushed on. I was also racing both classes using my provisional in the Expert Twins.  I my expert twins race I started out in the back after a poor start, but after a red flag and and a restart, I got a better start and was running 6th.  I had to get  top four to go directly to the main.  In my head I was going to the main.  I moved forward each lap and in the last lap I battled with National #10 Johnny Lewis for the forth position and my ticket to the main event.  I finished forth and I MADE MY FIRST EVER EXPERT MAIN.  I still had the 450 to run and I was up front in the heat until I got pushed up to the wall and went backwards and didn't make it to the main, and had to run a semi.  The track had changed and I tried to make the proper changes for my last races.  The 450 semi was first and I worked real hard to get the last spot in the main event.  Now I had a few minutes break before the 450 main but, not really enough time to make a lot of changes.  I had a 16 lap 450 main event with a 25 lap expert Twin race immediatley after.  My stratagy was to run a clean smooth race on the 450 so I would be good for the twins race.  In the 450 main I had a third row start and just put my head down and tried to go forward.  I went forward for a few laps than I had a hard time getting the bike to work and so I stayed in the back and finished 13th.  Not where I wanted to be but, I knew I had the Twins race next.  So off the 450 and onto the Harley for the Main.  I was very excited, I had a second row start.  I spun off the line and was in the back working my way forward.  I was up to tenth and battled between tenth and eleventh for a while.  I ended up 14th.  I was tired but very happy of all that I had accomplished that day.

I also raced Leamington, Canada where I made my first Dash for Cash.  This was also a pretty good day finishing forth in the Open Expert, and forth in the 450 Expert and 5th in the Dash. The twin broke in practice so I rode the 450 all day.

This weekend I have Welland, Ont National and Medina.  I chose not to go to California so that I could spend some time learning to ride the Harley. 

My next GNC race will be Peoria in Aug and I plan on riding the Harley agian in Indy and  Springfield.
