Josh McGuire Says Thanks Following USA Nationals;
Readies for Florence this Weekend!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) On behalf of the entire Josh McGuire
Racing team, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation for
all the kindness, hard work, and added support that was shown to us
this past weekend at the USA Nationals. There was much preparation
that involved so many wonderful people to help showcase us as the
U. S. Steel team. It was truly an honor to get to bare the U. S. Steel
The weekend was a surreal experience and it would not
have been possible without the help of two specific dedicated individuals
who are not only diehard race fans, but who know and believe in the
growth of the sport. Special thanks to...Scott Coleman of U. S. Steel
and Rich Olson of FANSFund. These two spent countless hours preparing
the logistics of both our # 41car and U. S. Steel teammate-- #44 Darrell
Nelson. We are very humbled by all their efforts and can't say THANK
YOU enough for the opportunity.
We also wish to extend our appreciation to the U. S.
Steel employees! Throughout this entire process...we have received
such strong support-please know that all your cheers were appreciated.
It is no wonder that U. S. Steel is one of the best companies in the
world...it is because they have the BEST employees. It was a joy getting
to meet those that attended the event and we enjoyed getting to celebrate
the USA Nationals together. We built some great friendships out of
this weekend and hope to see you at the track again soon. For those
that may not to be able to participate in the weekend's activities...please
know that our JMR team represented your company with great PRIDE and
welcome you to the track with us anytime (hopefully we will get to
meet more of you in our racing travels)...
Our list of Thank You's doesn't stop here...we could
go on and on including the Cedar Lake Speedway staff, Dirt On Dirt
for giving the fans at home an opportunity to watch the event live,
our always dedicated and supportive SPONSORS, and of course the reason
why we are racing-THE FANS! We are so grateful for all those who have
and continue to support us throughout our journey-thank you for the
cheers, the kind words, thanks for wearing our shirts/hats, and thanks
for just showing up at the track!
Josh McGuire and the #41 team have turned their single
focus this week towards the upcoming 'North/South 100,' which will
be held on Friday and Saturday, August 13-14 at the venerable Florence
Speedway in Union, Kentucky. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
will sanction the annual crown jewel event, which pays a whopping
$50,000 to the winner and $2,500 to start. Qualifying will take place
at the Cincinnati area venue on Friday evening, while heat races,
consolation events, and the 100-lap 'North/South 100' are scheduled
for Saturday night. Additional information on one of the biggest weekends
in our sport can be located at www.lucasdirt.com.
