Josh McGuire Runner-Up in Harvest 50; Preps for
Annual Jackson 100 at Brownstown!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late
Model team traveled to the Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio on Saturday
night, September 17 seeking their fourth 'Harvest 50' title. Josh
qualified well and later won his heat race in preliminary action.
During the course of the unsanctioned $5,000 to win feature event,
Josh grabbed the lead on the first circuit and paced the stout field
for a total of 41 laps. Unfortunately, his tires sealed over following
a late race restart and the Grayson, Kentucky standout was forced
to settle for a strong runner-up finish in the 50-lapper behind only
winner Eddie Carrier, Jr. Complete results from this year's version
of the 'Harvest 50' can be accessed online at www.skylinespeedway.net.
Next up for the Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team will
be the 32nd Annual 'Jackson 100' at the legendary Brownstown Speedway
in Brownstown, Indiana on September 23-24. Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt
Series time trials will headline Friday's portion of the two-day program,
while the heat races, consolation events, and the 'Jackson 100' will
be held on Saturday evening at the 1/4-mile, semi-banked fairgrounds
oval. The winner of the 100-lapper on Saturday will receive $20,000,
while the mega-event will pay $1,200 just to start. Additional information
