Josh McGuire Sweeps Moler and Florence; Gears Up for Tripleheader Weekend!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire racked up his ninth and tenth feature wins of the 2008 racing season last weekend in Ohio and Kentucky! On Friday night, September 26, the Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg, Ohio played host to a $2,000 to win unsanctioned event. Josh set a new track record during qualifying at MRP and later finished third in the dash. After rolling off from the inside of the second row for the main event, Josh found his way out front and took the checkers ahead of Steve Casebolt, Jr., Audie McWilliams, Barry Doss, and Jackie Boggs.
The dirt-slinging action quickly turned to the Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky on Saturday evening, September 27. The annual 'Fall 50' was on tap last Saturday and a $5,000 top prize was up for grabs. Josh once again started third in the 50-lap main event and found the point on the eighth circuit. The Grayson, Kentucky driver then held the top spot for the remainder of the race to record his first-ever triumph at Florence ahead of Mike Marlar, Brandon Green, Eric Wells, and Jerry Rice. You can view complete results from both races online at www.molerracewaypark.com and www.florencespeedway.com.
"Everything is clicking right now, I guess," stated McGuire today when asked about his recent success. "This car has been super good since we debuted it a month and a half ago and hopefully that continues throughout the rest of the year. I just have to thank my entire family for their help and support, along with my crew, sponsors, and fans for their continued dedication."
The #41 team has three high-profile Dirt Late Model events on their upcoming weekend schedule, as they will travel to North Carolina and Georgia. You can find Josh smashing the loud pedal at the following locations this weekend:
