Josh McGuire Looks for Better Fortunes at Paducah & LaSalle this Weekend!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team trekked to the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri last weekend (May 8-9) for another exciting round of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series competition. The 3rd Annual 'SuperClean Diamond Nationals' was held at Wheatland and a $30,000 top prize was up for grabs. Unfortunately, Josh McGuire could not advance into the 75-lap main event after suffering motor problems while in a transfer position in heat race action.

Despite the mechanical gremlins at Wheatland, Josh still finds himself ninth in the latest Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings. You can view complete results from the 'SuperClean Diamond Nationals' online at
