JR Fastener-Section 8 Crew Salvages Tough Night at Sebring

Categories: Racing News.

Indianapolis racing driver Stephen Cox returned to Sebring International Raceway Saturday for the 12 hour Champcar endurance event scheduled to begin at 6 pm with the checkered flag falling at 6 am Sunday morning.

Plagued by a series of mechanical woes, the team’s crew worked feverishly to keep their Ford Mustang GT in the race. The team eventually secured a 4th place finish in class through attrition and determination.

“The car is super fast. It’s well engineered and the suspension and brakes are fantastic. My co-drivers were superb and no one works harder than Allen, Richard, Alex and the crew, that’s for sure. We finished only because of their effort,” Cox said. “But we’ve got to be reliable, get consistent, and get to the front of the field. We owe that to our sponsors every time we race.”

Cox returns to Section 8 Racing at Nelson Ledges Sports Car Course in Garrettsville, Ohio in two weeks with support from the Sopwith Watch Company and Sta-Bil brand fuel stabilizer.
