Josh McGuire Racing Heads to Richmond This Weekend
After Florence Top Ten!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 JMR team
opened up their 2011 racing season last Saturday night, April 2 at
the venerable Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. An unsanctioned,
$3,000 to win event for the Dirt Late Models headlined the one-day
program at the Cincinnati area 1/2-mile oval. Josh drew the pole for
his heat race and later finished in the second spot to earn a coveted
starting position in the night's A-Main.
The Grayson, Kentucky native, after starting seventh
on the grid, looked to be on the move early in the race, as he flirted
with the top five. However, after the first caution period, his tires
appeared to seal over and his #41 machine was never the same after
that. Josh dropped back a couple of spots, but held tough to earn
a hard-fought eighth place performance in his season opener. Full
results from Florence can be accessed by clicking on www.florencespeedway.com.
Next up for the #41 team will be another $3,000 to win
program in the Commonwealth of Kentucky on Saturday evening, April
9. The Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky will play host to a
Southern Regional Racing Series (SRRS) showdown in two days time.
The inaugural running of the 'Frost Bite 40' will mark the first time
that the SRRS gang has sanctioned an event at Richmond in their five
years of existence. Additional information can be located online at
