Josh McGuire Leads Early in Jackson 100; Turns Focus to K-C This Weekend!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team invaded the legendary Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana last weekend for the 30th Annual 'Jackson 100.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again sanctioned the historic race, which was plagued by Mother Nature throughout the weekend. Due to the inclement weather, much of the racing program was pushed back until Sunday afternoon, September 27.
Josh McGuire qualified well and later won his competitive heat race. After starting third on the grid in the $12,000 to win 'Jackson 100,' Josh helped put on a great show in front of the huge crowd and the SPEED Channel cameras. He led laps 4-5 and laps 10-16, but stayed in contention throughout much of the 100-lap race. Unfortunately, Josh's #41 C.J. Rayburn entry suffered terminal mechanical problems on lap 71, which forced him to retire in the seventeenth position. You can view complete results from the wet and wild Brownstown weekend by visiting www.lucasdirt.com.
The #41 team is now eying the upcoming 'Dirt Track World Cup Classic' at the K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio this weekend. Preliminary events will be held at the south-central Ohio venue on Friday night, October 2, while the $20,000 to win, $1,500 to start main event will headline the weekend on Saturday evening, October 3. There is also a Front Row Challenge, which will allow the front row drivers for the feature the opportunity to start at the back of the field for a possible $40,000 bonus if they can win from the tail.
