Indianapolis-based racing driver Stephen Cox will return to C7R Motorsports on October 14th for a pair of races that will signal the end of his 2017 campaign in the United States. Cox will again pilot the familiar STA-BIL 360 Performance #21 at the Super Cup Twin 50’s at Nashville’s Highland Rim Speedway in mid-October after garnering a race win, a top five, three top tens and an 8th place finish in the Northern Division points standings. “We had our share of mechanical gremlins this year, but when the car ran well, we were fast,” Cox said. “I really appreciate Read More
After scoring his 19th career win at Midvale a few weeks before, C7R Motorsports driver Stephen Cox was second in the North Division points chase at Jennerstown Speedway last weekend for the Super Cup American Racer Twin 50’s. Although Cox’s Sta-Bil 360 Performance #21 ran strongly in the top three during practice, clutch problems made it clear that the car could not go the distance. With a possible North Division championship at stake, C7R Motorsports teammate Codie Rohrbaugh chose to step aside and put Cox in his #7 car. With no practice time in the other car, Cox jumped in Read More

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.

It was his first at Eastern Ohio’s Midvale Speedway.

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
