Josh McGuire Sets Fast Time for Spring 50; Preps
for Brownstown this Weekend!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Grayson, Kentucky native Josh McGuire
and his #41 Dirt Late Model team kicked-off their version of the 2010
racing season on Saturday, March 20 at the venerable Florence Speedway
in Union, Kentucky! The 1/2-mile, high-banked Cincinnati area facility
hosted the annual running of the 'Spring 50,' which boasted a $5,000
winner's check. Josh paced the stout field during qualifying, as he
took fast time honors for the evening.
After running fourth in his competitive heat race, Josh
rolled off thirteenth on the grid in the 50-lap main event. He raced
hard early in the feature, but a sputtering motor caused him to retire
from the race in the twenty-third position. You can view complete

The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team will now turn their
focus to the 'Indiana Icebreaker' at the Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown,
Indiana on Saturday, March 27. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
will sanction the annual one-day show, which will be taped by the
cameras of the SPEED Channel for the first time. A $10,000 paycheck
awaits the winner of the 'Indiana Icebreaker' on Saturday at the Jackson
