Josh McGuire Sweeps Weekend at Skyline; Eyes Dirt Track World Championship!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team had their best weekend of the 2009 racing season on October 10-11, as they swept both events held at the Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio! On Saturday night, Josh McGuire laid down the fastest lap during qualifying, won his heat race, and took home the $1,500 top prize in the unsanctioned main event. When the #41 team returned to Skyline on Sunday, they were looking for their second straight 'Harvest 50' title.

After a heat race triumph on Sunday, Josh was part of a great three-car battle up front during the 50-lap 'Harvest 50.' The Grayson, Kentucky driver led the final fourteen circuits after fierce battles with both Steve Shaver and Rob Blair for the top spot. Josh laid claim to the $5,000 winner's check and an additional $1,000 bonus for the weekend sweep by defeating Rob Blair, Zack Dohm, Freddie Carpenter, and Jason Montgomery. You can view complete results from both shows by accessing www.skylinespeedway.net.

"That was a great weekend for us winning both races at Skyline," commented McGuire earlier in the week. "Somehow we always manage to find a way to win there, but (Steve) Shaver and (Rob) Blair made me work extra hard for Sunday's victory. All three of us had a great race up front and that had to be a blast for the fans to watch. Hopefully, we gained a little momentum that will carry over into Lawrenceburg this weekend!"

The #41 team is currently readying their equipment for one of the biggest and most prestigious Dirt Late Model races in the country. The 29th Annual 'Dirt Track World Championship' will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 17-18 at the refurbished Lawrenceburg Speedway in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Qualifying and heat race action will take place at the 3/8-mile, high-banked complex on Saturday, while the last chance races and the $50,000 to win, 100-lap main event will be held on Sunday.
