FLOYD, VA :: Brittany Cockram scored podium finishes in every single start she made in the Mini Stock division at Franklin County Speedway in 2013 en route to the division championship. Two wins in the first three races launched Cockram’s season which ended up with six top-two finishes.
It was nice,” Cockram said. “It was definitely successful this season. I felt like I had a good season all around everywhere. We had a good car all season. I’m extremely happy about running at Franklin County again and we plan to run there again this season. It was nice. The competition was good. I was glad to see more cars show up and more difference in the competition. The nights we didn’t win, we still turned out very good and had fun.”
Cockram plans to run in the Mini Cup division again at Franklin County in 2014, in the same car she ran last year, while also testing the waters in a Late Model and running at other tracks as well.
“My dad (Daryn Cockram) has a test car we take there and there’s been talk about putting me in there to seeing what it’s like and getting the feel of it. It might be occasionally. I’ll stick to my mini stock but we’ll test those waters too.”
Along with winning the title at Franklin County, Cockram also finished second in points at nearby Motor Mile Speedway in their Mod-4 (Mini Stock) division. She plans to race at both Franklin County and Motor Mile again in 2014.
“We plan on running there as well this year,” Cockram said. “We’re not quite sure what I have to bring. Dad’s got new ideas for other tracks. We’ll try to test out other tracks this season and see where we can go. Motor Mile and South Boston possibly. We’ll also run Franklin County because that’s my home track and my favorite track.”
In seven starts at Franklin County in 2013, Cockram scored three wins, six top-two finishes and seven top-three finishes.
Cockram is supported by Kesler Contracting, Bells Auto Sales, Homes Plus Cabinet, Cash Cars and Engines (Billy Cash) and her father, Daryn Cockram, who also races at Franklin County in the Late Model division.
“He’s the leader of it and all the tracks that I run. I’d like to thank them for doing this every year and my overall family support.”
The 2014 season at Franklin County Speedway kicks off on Sunday, April 13th with the Second Annual Racing Dynamiks 200. For more information on Franklin County Speedway, visit the track website atwww.fcspeedway.com, “like” Moonshine Capital Promotions on Facebook or follow @FranklinCoSwy on Twitter.
