Josh McGuire Transfers into DTWC; Readies for Willard
and 201 Doubleheader
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
headed to the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio on October
19-20 for the 32nd edition of the 'Dirt Track World Championship.'
A total of 94 competitors piled into the pit area at PRP, all of whom
were gunning for the $50,000 payday in the crown jewel event, which
also attracted the high-definition cameras of the Lucas Oil Production
Studios. After Mother Nature took the win on Friday night, the entire
program was condensed into a one-day affair starting on Saturday afternoon.
Josh McGuire laid down the eighth quickest lap in Group
B during Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series qualifying and later grabbed
the third and final transfer spot through his stacked heat race. The
Grayson, Kentucky ace then started the 100-lap main event from the
outside of the eighth row and had his sights set on moving forward
in the DTWC. Unfortunately, Josh retired on lap 25 and wound up twenty-fourth
in the final rundown. Complete results from Portsmouth can be obtained
by clicking on www.lucasdirt.com.
The JMR team will now turn their attention to a pair
of unsanctioned events in the Commonwealth of Kentucky on October
26-27. On Friday night, the Willard Speedway in Willard, Kentucky
will play host to the 'Black Jack Memorial,' which boasts a $2,000
top prize. The newly-reopened 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky will
then take center stage with the $3,000 to win 'Halloween 50' on Saturday
evening. Also up for grabs over the weekend is a $500 bonus if a lucky
driver can sweep both shows. You can view the upcoming schedule for
