Josh McGuire and U. S. Steel Team Up Once Again
for Speedweeks 2012!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) With "Speedweeks 2012"
rapidly approaching, Josh McGuire and the United States Steel Corporation
reached an agreement today that will send the Grayson, Kentucky driver
and his #41 Dirt Late Model team south to Georgia and Florida next
month. Josh and U. S. Steel have been marketing partners on two other
occasions recently - one for the 2010 'USA Nationals' at Cedar Lake
(WI) Speedway and the other for last year's 'Dirt Track World Championship
at Atomic (OH) Speedway. The partnership has been very successful
in the past and both parties are looking forward to debuting the U.
S. Steel #41 MasterSbilt on February 10-11 at Screven Motor Speedway
in Sylvania, Georgia.
"Once again, it is an honor to work with U. S.
Steel, Scott Coleman, and their team of employees and I look forward
to representing them at Screven and East Bay during Speedweeks,"
exclaimed McGuire earlier today via telephone. "We have enjoyed
a great relationship in the past and marketing their brand in new
markets in Georgia and Florida will be a lot of fun. I had my mind
made up that we weren't going to Speedweeks this year, but Scott (Coleman)
approached me with a great opportunity to work with U. S. Steel once
again. We will hit Screven and East Bay for sure and if things go
well and our equipment is still in good shape, we may head over to
Volusia as well."
The 'Winter Freeze' at Screven will be the first race
of the season for the Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team on February 10-11.
The lid lifter for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will pay
$20,000 to the winner. Following Screven, the #41 team will venture
to East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida for the annual running
of the 'Winternationals.' Six Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series programs
will be held at the Tampa area venue from February 13-18 with winning
purses varying from $5,000 to $10,000. Additional information about
