Josh McGuire Prepares for Southern Ohio and Portsmouth
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
endured a rough night last Friday, June 15. On the way to the Southern
Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio, the transporter broke down and
the team barely made it to the track for the 17th Annual 'Pepsi Southern
100.' It looked as if the bad luck was behind them, as Josh McGuire
timed in second quickest during the qualifying session and later finished
a strong second in his heat race behind only prelim winner Eddie Carrier,
Jr. Unfortunately, more bad luck was in store for the #41 team in
the $2,000 to win Qualifying Feature, as Josh broke many of the key
components underneath the rear-end of his MasterSbilt racecar including
the driveshaft, transmission, liftbar, etc.
Those mechanical problems dropped Josh to a disappointing
thirteenth place effort, which was not good enough to transfer him
into the $10,000 to win 'Southern 100' Championship Feature. With
all of the damage from SOS on Friday night, Josh was also forced to
skip the 'Black Gold 50' program at the Beckley (WV) Motorsports Park
on Saturday, which he had planned on attending. Complete results from
the disappointing night at Southern Ohio Speedway can be accessed
online at www.southernohiospeedway.com.
Josh and the #41 team will look to get back on track
this upcoming June 22-23 weekend in a return trip to southern Ohio.
On Friday night, the Southern Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio
will open up its gates for a $2,000 to win Super Late Model show.
The doubleheader weekend will then conclude with a similar event on
Saturday evening at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.
