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

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
