Indianapolis driver Stephen Cox returns to the cockpit to begin a delayed 2020 racing season after signing a 12-race deal with 104+ Performance. America’s first octane boost product will support Cox’s team in the GridLife Music & Motorsports Festival series.
Cox will pilot Braunschweig Racing’s Chevrolet Corvette in the GridLife Alpine Horizon Festival at Pike’s Peak International Raceway in Colorado Springs, August 14-16, 2020 for six Touring Cup events. This forges a reunion of the same team/driver combination that set the World Racing League track record en route to a dominating win at Michigan’s Gingerman Raceway more than four years ago.
“We’re really looking forward to getting Stephen back in the car after our win with him at Gingerman in 2015,” said Braunschweig Racing team principal Matt Peterson. ”This will be our first sprint race with this car but we love what Gridlife has put together for their Touring Cup series and can’t wait to see how we stack up against their top contenders.”
As regulations permit, 104+ Performance is preparing a major presence at the event with an interactive exhibit offering information about 104+ Max Octane Boost and Lead Substitute, which cleans the fuel system while increasing fuel octane. In between race events, Cox will greet GridLife attendees at the exhibit.
“104+ Performance is thrilled to jump into a new racing series with Stephen,” Assistant Brand Manager Bob Galuska said. “This venture is not only a great jump in front of a new younger generation of automotive enthusiasts, but is also the first time the brand has been involved in grass roots racing in about 10 years. 104+ Performance was born by being sold at race tracks on Friday nights in the mid 70’s and we are excited to get the brand back to its heritage with our partnership with Gridlife and Stephen Cox.”
Cox will also drive the 104+ Performance/Braunschweig Corvette for an additional six events at the GridLife Midwest Festival at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, Michigan on October 2-4, 2020.
