Josh McGuire Runner-Up at 201; Preps for Trio of IRS Races this Weekend!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing team chased the rain last weekend and finally wound up at the 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky on Saturday evening, May 17. A regular weekly show was on tap at 201 and a $1,500 top prize was up for grabs. Josh McGuire set a new track record in qualifying, as he toured the Kentucky speedplant in a mere 13.221 seconds. After finishing second in his heat race to earn the outside second row starting spot for the A-Main, Josh also ran second to winner Jackie Boggs in the feature.
