STEPHEN COX: BACK ON TRACK!

After the fire that ended my race on February 13 at Circuit of the Americas and sent me to the intensive care unit of the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be back on track next 
month, blogs Stephen Cox.
Fans are are invited to Stephen Cox's return to auto racing on May 14 at Midvale Speedway, 45 minutes south of Canton, OH.

WHAT: The Super Cup 100 stock car race 
WHERE: Midvale Speedway, 3825 W State St, Midvale OH
WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2016 ~ racing begins at 6:30 pm EDT 

                                                              ABOUT THE SERIES
                                                    
The Super Cup Stock Car Series brings "big car" racing back to short tracks throughout the Mideast with 3,400-pound, 650 horsepower, steel-bodied cars. Super Cup cars are virtually identical to the NASCAR Busch Grand National and Hooters Pro Cup cars that raced on short tracks in years past. Sample photos of Super Cup cars are below.

                                                             ABOUT THE TRACK

Midvale Speedway is a 3/10ths mile asphalt racetrack. It is among the hundreds of "bullrings" that dotted the American landscape throughout the middle of the 20th century. Today, these landmarks are disappearing at an alarming rate. Opened in 1951, Midvale Speedway boasts an entirely paved pit area, modern grandstands and an open-air skybox. It is one of the finest short track facilities in the region.

                                              WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE RACE

Stephen is driving the bright red #21 supported by Boschett Timepieces, McGunegill Engines and Impact Racing. Rohrbaugh Racing of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series fields it.

Stephen's road course teams had won three consecutive races prior to the Circuit of the Americas accident. He is a former GT Challenge Series champion and the World Racing League's track record holder at Gingerman Raceway in Michigan. Stephen last competed in the Super Cup series in 2012 when he finished 3rd at Ona Speedway in West Virginia and 9th at Pennsylvania's Motordrome.
