DJ Cox has been named the driver of the Anderika Racing TA/FC Monte Carlo for 2014.
As they begin their defense of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Eastern Region championship,
Cox will be making the transition from driving a clutch-operated Funny Car to the Lencodrive/Neil
Chance converter used by the Anderika team. Cox is a veteran NHRA Division 1 TA/FC driver who will
bring his Dixie Construction sponsorship to join the East Coast Auto Electric sponsored team with
additional support from Keystone Automation, Lucas Oil and Mahle/Clevite bearings. Cox will be
replacing John Anderika who announced at the beginning of the '13 season that he would be retiring
at the end of the year. With Anderika behind the wheel, the team went on to appear in five final
rounds, winning the final two and the NHRA Eastern Region Championship.
Team owner Chuck Anderika said "When we decided to look for a driver the main criteria was someone
who could immediately step in and help us to continue to win. The whole crew felt DJ was the right
driver to accomplish this."
The team will begin the year at the opening NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Eastern Region race
at Virginia Motorsports Park on April 4th.
