Josh McGuire Racing Prepares for Black Diamond 125 Following Pair of Top Fives!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late Model team traveled north to the Buckeye State of Ohio over the August 27-28 weekend for a pair of events. On Friday night, the Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio played host to a $1,500 to win regular weekly show. Josh won his heat race in preliminary action and later started third in the A-Main. After the dust had settled at Skyline on Friday, Josh found himself credited with a fifth place performance in the feature behind winner Chris Carpenter, Freddie Carpenter, Jeff Burdette, and Chris Garnes.

Up next for the Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team was a trip to the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio for the annual running of the 'Fred Dillow Memorial.' The unsanctioned program on Saturday evening boasted a $4,000 top prize. Josh laid down the quickest lap around the southern Ohio venue during qualifying and later ran third in the dash. After rolling off from the inside of the second row in the 'Fred Dillow Memorial,' the Grayson, Kentucky native fell back several spots before rallying late to score a third place effort behind winner Tim Dohm and runner-up R.J. Conley. Full results from both races over the weekend can be located online at and

JMR has been feverishly working on their equipment this week to prepare for the upcoming 'Black Diamond 125' weekend at the Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, West Virginia. The inaugural event, which will be held this Friday and Saturday, September 3-4 at Tyler County, will feature a unique format that could pay a driver up to $60,000 in winnings. A $10,000 to win show will headline Friday's portion of the program, while the field will then be split in two for a pair of $20,000 to win events on Saturday. The top eight finishers in each 50-lapper will then transfer into a final $10,000 to win, 25-lap showdown to cap off the weekend.
