Josh McGuire Grabs Sixth Victory of 2010 Season
Last Saturday at Portsmouth!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
racked up their sixth feature victory of the 2010 season last Saturday
night, October 9 at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio!
Josh McGuire started out the evening by laying down the fastest lap
during the qualifying session at PRP, which earned him fast time honors.
After finishing sixth in the dash, Josh rolled off from
the outside of the third row in the 25-lap main event. The Grayson,
Kentucky native lived up to his nickname of "Bad Fast" in
the A-Main, as he grabbed the top spot with five circuits remaining
and cruised to the popular $2,000 triumph. Josh reached victory lane
by defeating Butch Dowdy, Jr., Jackie Boggs, R.J. Conley, and Derek
Fisher. Full results from the southern Ohio venue can be found online
"It had been awhile since we had been into victory
lane, so it felt really good last Saturday night at Portsmouth,"
stated McGuire over the phone this week. "We have had some strong
runs in the past month or so, but just haven't been able to put a
complete night together for whatever reason. Maybe this win will turn
our luck around a little bit and we can close out the season on a
high note. I have to thank all of my family, crew, and sponsors for
all of their support, as well as all of the fans!"
Following the win at Portsmouth, the #41 team has opted
to take the upcoming October 15-16 weekend off from Dirt Late Model
competition. Josh and the team are slated to return to action on October
22-23 at the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi. The
16th Annual 'Fall Classic' will be held at Whynot next weekend and
a $15,000 winner's check will be on the line. Additional information
