Josh McGuire Drives Stephens Motorsports Car to Victory Lane at Moler!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire, who was behind the wheel of the Stephens Motorsports #34 C.J. Rayburn racecar for the second time last Friday night, June 20, visited victory lane at the Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg, Ohio! Josh set fast time in qualifying and later won his heat race. After starting on the front row for the $2,000 to win main event, the Grayson, Kentucky driver wheeled his #34 entry to the win over Barry Doss, Bill Williams, Josh Williams, and John Whitney.
On Saturday evening, the action turned to the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio, as another $2,000 top prize was up for grabs. Josh qualified well and later ran third in the dash to earn the inside second row starting spot for the A-Main. He then ran amongst the leaders throughout the feature event at PRP and crossed underneath of the checkered flag in the fourth position behind winner R.J. Conley, Eric Wells, and Jackie Boggs.

"I could not have asked for anything better on Friday night at Moler," announced McGuire earlier today. "The car was awesome all night and the track was in great shape. It felt good to get that first win with the Stephens Motorsports team under my belt and hopefully there are many more to come this season. Then at Portsmouth, we were probably going to run second to R.J. (Conley), but we tangled with a lapped car late in the race and suffered some pretty heavy damage. Overall, it was a successful weekend and we will now turn our focus on running strong at Lernerville!"
Josh and the #34 team will trek to the Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania this upcoming weekend for the 2nd Annual 'Firecracker 100.' The World of Outlaws Late Model Series will sanction the blockbuster event on Friday and Saturday, June 27-28. A 100-lap, $40,000 to win main event will headline the two-day show on Saturday evening. Josh could not find his way into last year's 'Firecracker 100,' but he did win the $3,000 'Uncle Sam 30,' which was held for non-qualifiers.
