Seven consecutive wins Ron Cox takes the Monroe Indoor Championships

Monroe, Wa - January 5, 2002 (RFN) - Starting his racing career in 1987 Ron Cox, of Bothell has never won an indoor championship at Monroe, until now. Winning every heat race and every main event this season Cox took the indoor season championship by simply starting the final points race of the season.

Cox a regular season sprint car driver at Deming Speedway took four sprint car wins and finished second in the Deming championship points race during the 2001 season.

"Racing karts in the off season seems to fill my need for racing, plus I think it helps keep the edge on my racing skills. Whenever it fits in my schedule during the regular season I'll get in some additional kart races here and there", said Cox.

The kart he drives was purchased in 1989 and seem to fit him like a glove. It's a finely tuned machine with great attention and effort put into ensuring it is as light as possible. Other than the steel frame and the four bolts that secure the brake rotor, all parts are aluminum including the brake rotor. With the rear axle and steering wheel shafts cut to exact lengths, Cox has even drilled holes in the steering wheel to shave weight.

Taking eight Oakwood kart championships with this machine Cox said, "I own two karts now, and have had several over the years. This one just feels right, never sell the ones that work".

The final race of the Monroe winter indoor series will take pace Saturday, January 12, 2002 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. Get there around 9:30 am and see 150 racers battle, and enjoy a great morning of racing.
