March 24, 2018 - Josh Richards Battles Weekend Adversity with LOLMDS
1Josh Richards returned to action with the Lucas OIl Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) over the weekend with a pair of events in Georgia and Alabama.

Action kicked off on Friday night at Boyd's Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia) for the pilot of the Best Performance Motorsports #1 XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model. Forty-five entries registered for action in the $12,000-to-win event. Struggles in qualifying resulted in Richards starting seventh on the grid for this heat race. He advanced to a fifth place finish, which left him one spot short of locking into the feature.

As a result Josh ran the B-main, which he won, to earn the 18th-starting spot for the 50-lap finale. He would go on to advance to position to a 17th-place finish.

On Saturday evening the team invaded East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Alabama) as another $12,000 top prize was on the line. With 36 entries in action, the night started on a strong note for Richards as he set fast time overall with a 14.373-second lap around the 4/10-mile oval. Heat race action found Josh finished second, which locked him into the fifth-starting spot for the 50-lap finale.

In the main event, Josh raced in the Top-10 throughout the event before crossing the finish line in the ninth position.

Josh is now second in the latest LOLMDS standings, just five points out of the lead. For full results from the events as well as the latest series standings, please visit www.LucasDirt.com.
