Josh McGuire Posts Impressive Finishes at Lawrenceburg and K-C; Readies for Huge Weekend!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late Model team went up against many of the national stars of the sport last weekend at the Lawrenceburg Speedway in Lawrenceburg, Indiana (August 22) and the K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio (August 23) and emerged with a pair of top-six performances! On Friday night at Lawrenceburg, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned a $7,000 to win event. Josh timed in fourth quickest in qualifying and later won his heat race to earn the inside second row starting spot for the 40-lap main event. The Grayson, Kentucky native then ran amongst the leaders throughout the A-Main at the newly-refurbished speedplant and wound up fifth in the final rundown behind winner Darren Miller, Steve Francis, Jeep Van Wormer, and Scott James.

The K-C Raceway was up next on Saturday evening, as Jim Nier's facility hosted a $10,000 to win World of Outlaws Late Model Series show. Josh was twentieth fastest in WOOLMS qualifying and later ran third in his competitive heat race. After rolling off from the outside of the sixth row for the 50-lap feature, Josh was able to pass six cars en route to an impressive sixth place effort behind winner Rod Conley, Steve Francis, Darrell Lanigan, Josh Richards, and Rick Eckert.
