Josh McGuire Tames 201 for Second Win of 2010; Heads
West for Show-Me 100 and Fed-Ex 50
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late
Model team reached victory lane for the second time in the 2010 racing
season on Saturday evening, May 22 at the 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky.
Josh had set fast time for the regular weekly show back on May 15
before Mother Nature postponed the rest of the program. When action
resumed on Saturday, Josh captured the win in his heat race to earn
the pole position for the A-Main. The Grayson, Kentucky native was
on a rail during the main event, as he led flag-to-flag to record
the $1,500 triumph over Jackie Boggs, Michael P. Howard, David Powers,
and Paul Harris. Complete results from the 201 Speedway can be obtained

"It took us a week to finish the show and get the
win, but it was definitely worth it," exclaimed McGuire this
week via telephone. "We had a good car in the heat race and the
feature, so hopefully we learned some things that will translate into
a strong weekend at Wheatland and Granite City. Mother Nature looks
like she is finally going to cooperate this weekend, so I am really
looking forward to racing a good group of cars out west!"
The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team has two premier events
on their racing calendar for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The #41 team will travel to the states of Missouri and Illinois for
the annual running of both the 'Show-Me 100' and the 'Fed-Ex 50.'
On Friday and Saturday, May 28-29, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
will sanction the $30,000 to win 'Show-Me 100' at the pristine Lucas
Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri. This year will mark the first
time that the storied race has been held at Wheatland, as it originated
at the West Plains Motor Speedway in West Plains, Missouri and was
held there for seventeen consecutive years. The cameras of the SPEED
Channel will be on hand at the 3/8-mile, state-of-the-art complex
to tape the exciting side-by-side action for broadcast later in the
The holiday weekend will conclude for the team on Sunday,
May 30 at the Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois. The unsanctioned
