Josh McGuire Racing Preps for Upcoming DTWC Following
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 JMR team
returned to Dirt Late Model competition on Saturday night, October
13 at the venerable Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. The annual
running of the 'Fall 50' took place at the 1/2-mile facility and a
$5,000 top prize was on the line. Josh finished a disappointing seventh
in his heat race, but later drove up to second in the B-Main to earn
a coveted starting spot in the 50-lap feature. After starting deep
in the 'Fall 50' field, the Grayson, Kentucky standout moved up during
the attrition-filled race and wound up thirteenth in the final finishing
order. Complete results from Florence can be obtained by clicking
Next up for the Josh McGuire Racing team will be the
32nd running of the 'Dirt Track World Championship' scheduled for
October 19-20 at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will preside over their season
finale at PRP and the crown jewel event once again boasts a hefty
$50,000 payday. Qualifying and heat race action will take place on
Friday night, while the consolation events, $3,000 to win 'Jim Dunn
Memorial Non-Qualifiers Race,' and the 100-lap 'Dirt Track World Championship'
are all scheduled for Saturday evening.
The high-definition cameras of the Lucas Oil Productions
Studios will be on hand at Portsmouth to tape all of the wheel-to-wheel
action for broadcast on the SPEED Channel. Josh has one feature win
this year at PRP and captured the biggest victory of his career ($10,000)
in a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series battle at the 1/3-mile facility
back in 2008. Additional information on the DTWC weekend can be obtained
