Josh McGuire Preps for Rocky Top and Skyline Following World Cup Classic

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late Model team ventured north to the K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio over the October 2-3 weekend for the inaugural running of the 'World Cup Classic.' The O'Reilly All Star Late Model Series (ASLMS) sanctioned the star-studded event, which boasted a hefty $20,000 top prize. Josh started out the weekend on a high note, as he paced the stout field during qualifying on Friday to earn fast time honors and later ran second in his heat race.

After starting seventh on the grid in the 100-lap 'World Cup Classic' feature event on Saturday evening, Josh was running in the twelfth position when his race ended on the 43rd circuit. The Grayson, Kentucky driver was relegated to a disappointing twenty-second place performance following the conclusion of the 'World Cup Classic.' You can view complete results from K-C by pointing your web browser to www.kc-raceway.com.

Up next for the Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team will be two more special events in the Buckeye State of Ohio. The Rocky Top Raceway in Coal Grove, Ohio will play host to the $3,000 to win 'Fall Classic' tomorrow night, October 10. The Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio will then be the track of choice on Sunday, October 11, as a $5,000 winner's check is on the line in the annual running of the 'Harvest 50.'
