June 6, 2016 It's a tough pill to swallow, but Codie Rohrbaugh Racing driver Stephen Cox will miss the June 18 event at Columbus Speedway and give up the lead in the Super Cup Stock Car Series championship points race. Instead, he will rejoin Scott Hoke, John Kraman and Bill Stephens to co-host NBCSN's coverage of Mecum Auctions from Portland. “We knew this could happen, and there was never any question what my choice would be,” Cox said. “Mecum is my top priority and I'm happy about that.

Midvale, Ohio (June 5, 2016, source - Super Cup Stock Car Series) – During Saturday’s Hilltop General Store 75 presented by Frontier Tool and Equipment Rental, the field of competitors were not only evading impending storms in the sky but also within the abundance of action on the track. Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson dodged and survived numerous close calls to come away with his third career Super Cup Stock Car Series victory. It was his first at Eastern Ohio’s Midvale Speedway.
“We thought we had it won three different times and still had to fight for it,” Nelson said, adding that he could not recall being part of a more eventful conclusion to a race.
Some dramatic altercations set up by a yellow flag with only two laps to go resulted in four green-white-checkered attempts on the 3/10-mile, but the turning point to the race came even earlier. A long green flag run during the middle stages of the 75-lap event began to get interesting as 2015 Midvale winner Larry Berg was tracking down the leader and teammate Stephen Cox, who set a track record earlier in the evening with a lap time of 14.758 seconds.Read More
