Josh McGuire Heads North to Ohio this Weekend for
Stops at Skyline and Portsmouth!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
made a rare journey to the nearby Willard Speedway in Willard, Kentucky
on Friday night, August 20 for the 'Black Jack Farley Boggs Memorial.'
The unsanctioned Dirt Late Model special at Willard paid $2,000 to
the winner. Josh McGuire slapped the wall during his qualifying lap,
but rebounded nicely in his heat race to claim a second place finish.
In the A-Main, Josh had a strong racecar and crossed underneath the
checkered flag in the third position.
However, he was penalized following the race for not
going to the scales, even though the scales were not working and Josh
had not visited them following qualifying and the heat race. Instead
of a third place finish, the Grayson, Kentucky driver was relegated
to a disappointing tenth place effort, as there were only ten cars
that finished the race. Saturday's $4,000 to win 'Fred Dillow Memorial'
at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio was then rained-out
and rescheduled for next Saturday, August 28. Complete results from
Willard on Friday can be viewed online at www.willardspeedway.net.
The #41 team will trek to the Buckeye State of Ohio
on August 27-28 for two more Dirt Late Model showdowns. The Skyline
Speedway in Stewart, Ohio will be the track of choice tonight, August
27, as a $1,500 top prize will be up for grabs in a regular weekly
show. On Saturday, the weekend will conclude with the rain-postponed
'Fred Dillow Memorial' at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth,
Ohio. The 16th annual running of the unsanctioned event will pay $4,000
to the winner. Additional information concerning both of these programs
can be located online at www.skylinespeedway.net
