Josh McGuire and #34 Team Trek to Southern Ohio this Weekend!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Stephens Motorsports #34 team traveled to the legendary Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania last weekend for the 2nd Annual 'Firecracker 100.' The World of Outlaws Late Model Series sanctioned the high-profile event, which drew 62 cars all vying for the $40,000 top prize. Josh McGuire timed in thirty-seventh fastest during qualifying on Friday night, June 27 and later ran eighth in his competitive heat race. He was slated to compete in one of the B-Mains on Saturday evening, but Mother Nature wiped out the action on Saturday at Lernerville, as well as the rain date on Sunday. The C-Main, B-Mains, and the 100-lap 'Firecracker 100' are now rescheduled for Tuesday, July 29. You can view complete results from Lernerville online at www.worldofoutlaws.com.

Josh and the #34 team will kick off their Independence Day tripleheader weekend tonight, July 3 at the K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio. The Independent Racing Series (IRS) will sanction a $5,000 to win show tonight at Jim Nier's facility. The dirt-slinging action will then turn to the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio on Friday and Saturday, July 4-5. The Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS) will sanction a $5,000 to win event on the 4th of July, while a $10,000 top prize is up for grabs in the weekend finale at PRP on Saturday. You can learn more about each of these races online at www.irsracing.net and www.macsracing.com.
