Mark Cox Celebrates 100 Years of Harley-Davidson
and Looks Towards Chicago Race

Mark Cox, Johnny Vickers and Mitch Cox recently drove their Harleys to Milwaukee to participate in the 100th anniversary of Harley-Davidson.
"Since we had a little down time, we decided to take off for the ride," said Cox. "It was an exciting trip for me. As a dealer, I wanted to show my support and commitment to Harley-Davidson and join in the camaraderie. It was the most miles I've ever put on my 100th Anniversary Electraglide Standard in one trip - about 1,865 miles. Crossroads Harley-Davidson's own Bernie Lee built the 103 ci Screamin' Eagle engine that ran flawless on the entire trip! Johnny drove over 3,000 miles since he rode from Louisiana to North Carolina, then to Milwaukee and back to Louisiana.

"We went to Milwaukee via Chicago/Joliet to see the Route 66 Dragway we'll be racing at September 25-28 for the NHRA event. I'm really looking forward to the event and excited about running at that caliber of a race track."

As part of the 100th anniversary celebration, racer Ray Price was invited to participate with his Top Fuel bike on display, signing autographs and answering questions for the fans.

"It was great to see Ray there, the first time I've seen him since his accident," added Cox. "It's fantastic he continually promotes the sport of Screamin' Eagle Nitro Harley racing. He's a real leader and very popular with the Harley enthusiasts."

Mark Cox Racing's 2003 schedule includes the following remaining races of his 11-event schedule: September 25-28, NHRA Chicago, IL; October 3-5, AHDRA Rockingham, NC; October 9-12, NHRA Dallas, TX; October 17-19, AHDRA Las Vegas, NV.
