HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — BK Racing announced Wednesday that Randy Cox has rejoined the organization and will serve as Corey LaJoie’s crew chief for the remainder of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
Previously, Cox crew chiefed BK Racing’s No. 26 Toyota in 2014.
“I’m very happy to be back with BK Racing for 2017,” said Cox. “I’ve known Corey and the LaJoie family for a long time. He’s a hardworking and hard-racing guy, and I’m eager to see what we can build together.”
“Randy has been around the garage his entire life, and he’s a racer like me so we speak the same language,” explained LaJoie. “I’m glad that BK Racing is giving him the reins to this No. 83 team.”
“I have worked with Randy before, and I believe his abilities to make race strategy calls will be important and successful with the new stage format,” added team owner Ron Devine. “We are excited to reconnect Randy, BK Racing, and the No. 83 team. Randy and Corey will join forces to provide BK Racing with increased on-track performance.”
Cox has been a crew chief in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series since 2007, and started as a crew chief in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since 2004. He went to victory lane in his very first XFINITY race as a crew chief, when Jamie McMurry won at Rockingham in 2004 with Braun Motorsports.
