Josh McGuire Takes this Weekend Off Following Lowes!

(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) Josh McGuire and his #41 Dirt Late Model team invaded the state-of-the-art Dirt Track at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina from October 29-November 1 for a trio of high-profile World of Outlaws Late Model Series shows. The busy stretch of racing kicked-off with the 'Armour Vienna Sausage Showdown' on Wednesday night at the Charlotte-area venue. Josh qualified fifth quickest in time trials, but suffered mechanical problems during preliminary action and unfortunately failed to make the starting grid for the $10,000 to win feature event.

Things got much better for the Josh McGuire Racing team during the 'VAULT World Finals' at Lowe's over the weekend. After a strong night of qualifying on Thursday, Josh ran second in his heat race on Friday night to transfer into the $10,000 to win, 50-lap main event where he later finished twenty-seventh. In the weekend finale on Saturday, which was held in front of a huge, standing-room only crowd and a live SPEED Channel audience, Josh once again ran second in his competitive heat race. After rolling off from the inside of the fourth row in the $10,000 to win A-Main, the Grayson, Kentucky native held his own throughout the 50-lapper and eventually wound up in the ninth position.

The JMR team took the November 7-9 weekend off from racing action, but tentatively plans to sling dirt again over the November 14-15 weekend. However, definite plans are not available as of now. Please keep visiting throughout the week to see when and where Josh will race next!
