Cody Johncox Professional Debut - 2010

March 19, 2014
Georgia and Daytona 2014

Savanah Georgia

My fisrt stop to Daytona was a half mile in Savanah to do some testing on the Dick Ford/Skip Eaken XR750. Tha All Star Race got rained out Friday and the ran it Saturday night after the Amatuer Races.  I ran both my Yamaha 450 and the Harley, it was my first race as a GNC Expert.  There wasn't a lot of time to make many changes since they were on a curfew, so i concentrated on getting the Harley dialed in.  It ran good and had a lot of power just had to fine tune the suspension and the rear brakes.  I finished 5th in my heat for my 450 and the Harley.  In  the final I finished 8th on the 450 and 9th on the Harley.

Velousia, FL.

I decided to do a little more testing at Velousia Half Mile on the Harley.  I got the suspension dialed in a little more and ran practice.  Everything seemed to be working good except I noticed gas dripping from the tank.  There was a hole so I decided not to continue. 

Daytona, FL

Day 1:  I struggled all day trying to get my Yamaha 450 dialed in on this Short Track.  I wasn't very satisfied with my results where I qulaified 33rd.  My dad I made adjustments all day and seemed to improve as the day went on, but i still wasn't happy with my results.  I finihed 10th in the heat and 8th in the semi.

Day 2:  I felt better going into the day,  My times were improving but my results weren't.  I still only qualified 35th.  After talking with Mike Hacker and Les Washbon, i realized that i just needed to relas and settle down.  Not to overthink and to go out and have some fun.  After doing that everything started to work.  i finished 9th in my heat and was moving forward.  it all came together in my semi where i held off Henry Wiles for several laps and passed Jared Mees.  i finished 6th and was still going forward.  I didn't make the main, but I  felt a lot better.

My next big race is on the Harley in May.  I will continue testing and riding.
