Default Coincidence?

Hello fellow 1/2A'ers. I was surfing around on the lunchroom TV at work today and lo & behold I see this uber-bad***** boat making a run on a MAVTV program. Couldn’t believe it when I saw the driver/navigator names & the boat number. It’s the Cox/Cox #049 “Obsession” sprint boat.

Dunno if they’re related to Leroy but surely it couldn’t be coincidental that their names are Cox and their boat number is 049! I Googled it and found a few youtube videos. There’s other info out there on facebook but I don’t go there.

Who’s gonna be the 1[SUP]st[/SUP] to build a model with a hot TeeDee in it?
