Josh McGuire Sweeps Weekend at Rocky Top and Ohio
Valley to Net $7,000
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
racked up wins number four and five on the season over the June 18-19
weekend by sweeping events at the Rocky Top Raceway in Coal Grove,
Ohio and the Ohio Valley Speedway near Washington, West Virginia!
At Rocky Top on Friday night, the annual 'GCP Engines Showdown' was
held and a $4,000 top prize was up for grabs. Josh McGuire won his
heat race in preliminary action and later led all forty laps of the
main event to score the dominant victory over Tim Dohm, Greggie Oliver,
Shannon Thornsberry, and Jason Montgomery.
On Saturday evening in a rare trip to the Ohio Valley
Speedway, Josh swept the night's racing activities. After laying down
the quickest lap during qualifying and winning his heat race, the
Grayson, Kentucky native once again had the car to beat in the 35-lap
feature event. When the dust had settled at the Mountaineer State
speedplant, Josh found himself celebrating a convincing $3,000 triumph
over Ron Mayle, Ed Shuman, Jeff Burdette, and Anthony Huber. You can

"It was an awesome weekend for our team and everything
went just as we had hoped when we left the race shop on Friday morning,"
exclaimed McGuire this week while working on his C.J. Rayburn racecar.
"We qualified well both nights and won our heat races, so that
obviously put us in a great position when feature time rolled around.
I can't thank everyone associated with our race team enough for their
support and hopefully we can keep this momentum going into Skyline
and Portsmouth this weekend!"
Josh and his #41 team are currently eying a pair of
Dirt Late Model events this upcoming weekend (June 25-26) in the Buckeye
State of Ohio. On Friday night, Josh plans to invade the Skyline Speedway
in Stewart, Ohio for a $1,500 to win show. The Portsmouth Raceway
Park in Portsmouth, Ohio will then close out the weekend for the JMR
team on Saturday evening with a $2,000 to win program. Additional
information concerning both races can be found online at www.skylinespeedway.net
