Josh McGuire Records First Career Win at K-C Raceway
Leading into DTWC!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
claimed their fifth feature win of the 2011 campaign on Saturday night,
October 8 at the K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio! During the qualifying
session at the 3/8-mile facility, Josh McGuire laid down the second
fastest lap. After being inverted four spots prior to his heat race,
Josh stormed to the front of the field to claim the prelim triumph.
The Grayson, Kentucky native then redrew the sixth starting position
prior to the unsanctioned main event, but once again proved to be
the class of the field. Josh grabbed the top spot shortly after the
halfway point in the A-Main and motored to the $2,000 victory over
Donnie Moran, Rod Conley, Delmas Conley, and Jason Montgomery. Complete
results from Saturday can be viewed online at www.kc-raceway.com.
"Our night at K-C went really well and I am glad
we opted to race there to get some laps heading into the Dirt Track
World Championship," commented McGuire recently. "We qualified
well, won the heat race, and came to the front after starting sixth
in the feature. As good as the car was last Saturday, it will be hard
for me to change anything on it heading into the DTWC this weekend.
We'll see what the weather does and how the track is and hopefully
we can run strong again at K-C this weekend!
Fresh off his first career victory at the K-C Raceway
in Chillicothe, Ohio last Saturday night, Josh McGuire and his #41
team are actively preparing their equipment for a return to the south-central
Ohio track on October 14-15 for the 31st Annual U. S. Steel 'Dirt
Track World Championship.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will
sanction the crown jewel event, which boasts a whopping $50,000 payday.
Josh has reached an agreement with race title sponsor U. S. Steel
to carrier their logo and colors on the sides of his MasterSbilt racecar
during the DTWC weekend. This will be the second time that JMR and
U. S. Steel have paired up, as Josh also piloted a U. S. Steel car
for the 2010 'USA Nationals' at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond,
"It is truly an honor to be able to work with U.
S. Steel, Scott Coleman, and their team of employees once again,"
McGuire went on to say. "Our 2010 U. S. Steel debut at the USA
Nationals at Cedar Lake (WI) Speedway was definitely a highlight of
our team's career - as I am sure this DTWC weekend will be too. We
consider K-C Raceway to be one of our local tracks and getting to
share this U. S. Steel experience with our fans, sponsors, and team
just makes this opportunity that much more thrilling! We can't thank
everyone involved enough - it is going to be a great weekend!"
