Josh McGuire Racing Nets Top Five at Florence; Skyline and K-C Up Next!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team invaded the venerable Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky last Saturday night, April 11 for the annual running of the 'Spring 50.' The unsanctioned Dirt Late Model event at the Cincinnati area venue paid $5,000 to the winner. Josh McGuire finished third in his heat race, which was good enough to earn him the fourteenth starting spot in the 50-lap main event.

At the drop of the green flag in the feature, Josh quickly moved to the front of the stout field and looked like he had a car that could contend for the win. A broken lower control arm slowed his momentum, but the Grayson Kentucky driver was still able to hold on to a solid fifth place effort. Josh finished only behind winner Jeep Van Wormer, Steve Francis, Darrell Lanigan, and Randy Weaver. You can view complete results online at www.dirtondirt.com.
