Josh McGuire Runner-Up in Coal Miners Classic at
Lucky 7; Trip to PRP Up Next!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late
Model team trekked to a pair of venues in the Commonwealth of Kentucky
over the October 1-2 weekend. On Friday night, the legendary Ponderosa
Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky played host to a $2,000 to win
NASRA Super Late Model Series showdown. Josh ran second in heat race
action at the "Pond" and had a solid run going in the 30-lap
feature prior to suffering rear suspension problems. The mechanical
troubles relegated the Grayson, Kentucky native to a disappointing
seventeenth place effort.
Next up for the JMR team was a trip to the upstart Lucky
7 Speedway in Whitesburg, Kentucky for the inaugural running of the
'Coal Miners Classic' on Saturday evening. Josh timed in sixth fastest
in qualifying at the new speedplant and later ran second in his heat
race. After rolling off from the outside of the third row in the $5,000
to win main event, Josh made a late charge in the race and wound up
a strong second behind only winner Greg Lucas. Full results from both
programs can be located online at www.dirtondirt.com.
The Josh McGuire Racing team has a single event circled
on their racing calendar for the upcoming weekend. Josh is scheduled
to be in action on Saturday, October 9 at the Portsmouth Raceway Park
in Portsmouth, Ohio. The season finale at PRP will take place on Saturday
and a $2,000 payday awaits the winner. Additional information on the
southern Ohio facility can be accessed by clicking on www.portsraceway.com.
