Josh McGuire Runner-Up at Southern Ohio Speedway
and 201 Speedway Last Weekend!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 team rolled
into Southern Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio on Friday night,
July 12 to kick-off their doubleheader weekend. The 3rd Annual 'Southern
50' was held on Friday at SOS and a $6,000 winner's check was on the
line. Josh timed in second fastest during the qualifying session and
later placed third in his heat race. After rolling off from the outside
of the fourth row in the unsanctioned 50-lapper, Josh was able to
blast past six competitors on his way to a stellar runner-up performance
behind only race winner Jared Hawkins.
On Saturday evening, July 13, the JMR team had plans
of defending their 'Butterball Wooldridge Memorial' title at Richmond
Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky, but a heavy downpour sent them to 201
Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky instead. Josh laid down the second quickest
lap during the time trial session prior to taking home the win in
heat race action. During the course of the $1,500 to win weekly main
event, the Grayson, Kentucky ace slid back a few spots early in the
race, but made a last lap charge to claim another runner-up effort
behind only victor Chris Combs. Full results from both weekend races
can be accessed online at www.southernohiospeedway.com
As of press time, Josh has only one event on his upcoming
weekend schedule. The driver known as "Bad Fast" will pull
into Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky on Saturday, July 20 for
the rain-postponed 'Paul Wooldridge Butterball Memorial.' The unsanctioned,
one-day event pays $7,500 to the winner and $750 just to start the
feature. Josh is the two-time defending race champion and will vie
for his third straight victory in the prestigious race this Saturday.
