Josh McGuire Runner-Up in Wild Coal Miners Classic; Preps for Upcoming North/South 100

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire, of Grayson, Kentucky, jumped behind the wheel of Brandon Fouts' #81 Rocket racecar on Saturday night, August 6 at the Lucky 7 Speedway near Whitesburg, Kentucky. The 2nd Annual 'Coal Miners Classic' was held at the tiny oval and a $5,000 top prize was up for grabs. Josh won his heat race in preliminary action and later rolled off from the pole position in the 'Coal Miners Classic.' It was a crazy race that last nearly 2.5 hours and Josh experienced a wide variety of ups and downs throughout the course of the unsanctioned event.

He led on a couple of different occasions and came from the back of the pack on several more occasions due to flat tires and other incidents. When everything was said and done, Josh crossed underneath the checkered flag second behind only winner Eddie Carrier, Jr. Complete results from Lucky 7 can be viewed online at

With his motor still not ready to put in his own #41 racecar, Josh will team back up with Brandon Fouts for the huge 'North/South 100' weekend at the Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky on August 12-13. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will once again sanction the crown jewel event and the cameras of the SPEED Channel will be on the grounds to capture all of the action. Qualifying will take place on Friday night, while the heat races, consolation events, and the $50,000 to win 'North/South 100' are all scheduled for Saturday evening.
