June 8, 2019 - Kosiski Races To 6th Place Finish at Stuart; Grabs Top 5 at I-80
Andrew Kosiski was in action Wednesday night at the Stuart Speedway as the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series made their first ever trip to the Iowa bull ring. Kosiski looked to continue his good momentum in race number eight of the 2019 Malvern Bank Race For The Safe tour.

There would be no qualifying as the track did not have a transponder loop. Heat race line ups were set by the draw, leaving Andrew to start third row inside in heat race number one. AK advanced two positions and finished third qualifying him for the fifth row of the 25 lap main event.

Kosiski took the green flag and used his inside row starting position to work through traffic early. As the field found the bottom groove to be dominant, Andrew would ride the bumper of Ben Schaller for most of the race. The two MB Customs made it past the No. 55D of Nick Deal as he got out of the groove in the last ten laps of the race, but Kosiski couldn’t ever get a good enough run on Schaller to mount a challenge. AK took home 6th place as the checkered flags flew in the caution free event.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made their way to the I-80 Speedway Friday night for round three of the 2019 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season. This would be the team’s fourth night of racing in an eight day span and they capped it off with a top five run.

Track position was the name of the game all night at the 4/10th of a mile speed plant. Kosiski started outside row three in the final heat race of the evening where he worked his way up three positions in the eight lap event. Finishing third qualified the No. 53 for the third row outside starting spot in the 25 lap main.

Taking the green flag in the main event; Andrew would take a few laps to better himself in the running order. Getting up to the fourth position, Kosiski would maintain it until after the half way mark when the No.98 of Ben Schaller took over the spot. AK crossed the checkered flags in the 5th position after 25 circuits in the caution free event.

Andrew has climbed to seventh in the latest Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series point standings. For more results from these events, please visit please visit www.SLMRSeries.com.


June 1, 2019 - Strong Performance Halted After Contact at Dirt Classic; Rebounds With 3rd Place Podium Finish at Off Road
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 continued on the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series tour Friday night as they visited I-80 Speedway for the annual Dirt Classic. The Malvern Bank Series was just recently added to the Dirt Classic race card and Kosiski was looking to take advantage of the start at his home track.

AK kicked off the night with time trials where he put down a lap of 18.445 seconds which was good for second overall in Group A qualifying.

Kosiski would line up third row outside for the eight lap heat race, where he worked through traffic to take the lead with two laps to go. Andrew pulled away in the final few laps and won in dominant fashion.

Starting the 40 lap, $4,000 to win main event from the pole position, AK slipped back to the third position after lap one. A lap three caution slowed the field and on the restart the No. 53 went to battle with the No. 19 of Corey Zeitner. Andrew grabbed the advantage on lap seven from Zeitner and set sail on the high groove. By the midpoint of the race Kosiski started to feel pressure from Tad Pospisil, but working lapped traffic he was able to pull away from the No. 04. Disaster struck on lap 28 as a lapped car hit the wall in front of Andrew and then turned down the track causing heavy contact to the right side of the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission sponsored machine. This would end the night as Kosiski was forced pit side with the damage.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 were looking to bounce back after getting caught up in an accident Friday night at I-80 Speedway; and they did exactly that. Saturday night they took on the Off Road Speedway for a $2,000 to win Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series event. The Norfolk bull ring has been traditionally a challenge for the Omaha native, but this time around he earned a 3rd place finish.

The night started off with time trials where Kosiski timed his All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care No. 53 in at 15.260 seconds which was good for fourth fastest time in Group B. The qualifying effort placed Andrew third row inside in heat race number four. AK went to battle early on in the eight lap heat racing side by side with both Kyle Berck and Josh Leonard. Kosiski took the advantage on lap four and then set his sights on third place runner Jim Johnson. Making a last lap pass Andrew finished third, qualifying himself for the 25 lap A main.

Rolling off seventh, Andrew had the drive early on in the feature. Pulling a slide job coming off two, AK broke into the top five on lap four; then on lap nine he took over fourth place at the start-finish line just before the yellow flag was displayed. After the restart Kosiski had to take evasive maneuvers as third place runner Jason O’Brien went into the spin cycle; barely making it by Andrew set himself to restart the race now in the third position and at the green flag he challenged the No. 55D of Nick Deal for the runner up spot. Kosiski fell back in line and rode until a lap 14 caution made things exciting. The top three runners would be under a blanket on lap 16 when race leader Tad Pospisil jumped the cushion entering turn one, this allowed Deal to get to his door, but it was AK on the bottom taking the lead coming off of turn two. Leaving enough room on the outside , Deal sailed his car onto the cushion in turns three and four to take over the top spot. Andrew ran runner up until the race slowed on lap 22, then it was time for one last chance at the lead. Kosiski could not challenge Deal, but it was Ben Schaller who made a last lap, last corner pass on the No. 53 to take second, leaving Andrew to finish third. (Cody Papke photo)

May 4, 2019 - Kosiski Rebounds For Top 10 at Adams County
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made the weeknight trip Thursday night to the Stuart Speedway for a rare start with the Lucas Oil MLRA. This would be Kosiski’s first career start at the 1/4 mile bull ring in west central Iowa.

AK drew front row outside of his heat race qualifier. At the drop of the green Kosiski raced door to door with current MLRA points leader Will Vaught with the No. 53 leading lap one. The two would race side by side on lap two until Vaught made the pass in the middle of turns three and four. This would bring third place runner Chris Simpson into play, Andrew and Simpson would race for a few laps for the position with Chris getting the edge. At the checkered flag it was Vaught, Simpson and Kosiski the top three.

The 40 lap main event would have a slow start with three yellow flags in the first eight laps. After starting 7th, Kosiski made it as high as 6th until falling to 9th at the lap eight yellow. After the restart contact between Billy Moyer and Jesse Stovall sent the No. 00 of Stovall into the spin cycle entering turn three, Andrew had no place to go smashing into the side of Stovall. With damage to the right front of the car, Kosiski was forced to retire his All Makes Collision Certified Transmission MB Customs No. 53 for the evening.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 traveled to the Crawford County Speedway Friday evening for round four of the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. Kosiski entered the night tied for third in series points coming off of three top ten finishes to start the year.

The eight lap heat race qualifier started the evening off with AK starting second row inside. At the drop of the green Andrew fell back to the fourth position as outside second row starter Jason Rauen grabbed the cushion and went to battle for the lead. Kosiski would eventually get past pole sitter Curt Schroeder for the third position and take the checkered flag there earning the 12th starting position for the night’s feature.

The 25 lap A main was short lived as just a couple laps in a light smoke would start to trail the No. 53 machine and on lap five the power plant would experience a failure resulting in a 21st place finish.

Saturday night Team 53 made the trip to the Adams County Speedway - Corning IA for the fifth round of action in the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. Andrew and the crew would put many hours of work in over night getting a new power plant under the hood of the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care MB Customs Chassis No. 53 so they could compete in the event.

Time trial action saw AK post a time of 21.679 seconds, good enough for 9th fastest. Starting outside the front row of his heat race, Kosiski jumped out to an early lead. Just after the half way point Andrew would slip up entering turn one allowing the No. 24 of Bill Leighton Jr. to race by. Kosiski went on to finish second behind Leighton in the 8 lap race.

Starting the feature from the fourth row outside, AK battled early on with Cousin Brian Kosiski for the 7th position until both Kosiski’s entered the spin cycle entering turn three on lap three. The caution would come out sending them both to the back. Andrew worked his way through traffic the rest of the 25 lap race to finish in the 9th position.

The night started off with the 8 lap heat race where the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission No. 53 took the green flag from the pole position and jumped out to a commanding lead. Andrew stretched the lead to over a half straightaway by lap two, and after leading all the circuits he picked up the heat race victory, his second of the season.

Kosiski started the 25 main event fourth row inside and in the first couple laps Andrew used the bottom groove to get by both Brian Kosiski and Josh Krug. AK then set his sights on Bill Leighton Jr., but within the first few laps the low side became the dominant place to be and Andrew would have to follow the tire tracks of Leighton. In the closing laps the top five were all on the same straightaway but no one could make a move. Josh Leonard picked up the win, followed by Jason O'Brien, Corey Zeitner, Leighton, and Kosiski 53.

Kosiski would start third in heat race number two and from the drop of the green he would go to battle with the No. 52 of Brian Kosiski. The two Kosiski’s split the No. 15C of Curt Schroeder for the second position a few laps in, but it would be Brian that took the advantage as Andrew finished third in the 8 lap race.

The third place heat finish would line the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care No. 53 on the pole of the first last chance qualifier. Andrew would lead the entire way and pick up the victory to secure a 15th place starting position in the 25 lap A main.

With track position being premium on the 1/4 bull ring, traffic was tough to negotiate at the start of the main event. AK worked his way up to the 12th position by the lap 9 yellow, and then after the restart he would make his way forward some more. After using the bottom lane of the speedway, Kosiski raced door to door with Joel Callahan for 8th in the closing laps but couldn’t complete the pass to come home with a 9th place finish.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 will travel to the Hawkeye State on Friday, April 19th, to the Marshalltown Speedway for the third race of the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. This will be Andrew’s first career race at the unique 1/4 mike speedway that is known for slide jobs and 3-4 wide racing.

(Todd Boyd photo)

The night would start with group qualifying where Andrew would time in seventh fastest in Group B with a lap time of 18.538 seconds. That started the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care Mars Race Cars No. 53 inside of row two in the heat race where he would pick up the win.

The 18 lap feature event would see Kosiski start from the outside front row and lead every lap to victory despite having to endure two green-white-checkered restarts. Andrew used the low groove most of the event as his MB Customs chassis showed great speed the entire race.

In victory lane Kosiski thanked all those that support him and Team 53. What it takes to put fast cars on the race track is a total team effort.

A correction to what was previously reported, Friday night’s win didn’t lock in a front row starting spot, the win would put Andrew starting third row outside as the top three of each qualifying feature were inverted.

Track position proved to be key in the 25 lap main event as the race went caution free. Kosiski would get in line on the super fast racing surface and run 6th for most of the race as the 2nd-6th place runners would all be on the same half straightaway early on. AK finally made the bottom groove work to get around the No. 19 of Corey Zeitner in the closing laps. Taking the checkers in was Nick Deal picking up the win, followed by Josh Leonard, Brian Kosiski, Bill Leighton Jr., and Andrew Kosiski.

In 2019 Andrew Kosiski will pilot his family owned #53 MB Custom chassis sponsored by All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, and OMNI Inventive Care.

Andrew Kosiski made his first career start at the historic Knoxville Raceway Saturday evening as the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series joined the final night of the 15th Annual Knoxville Late Model Nationals. The Midwest Mobile Tech 22 was an invite only non points race for the Malvern Bank Series with a full slate of time trials, heats, and the main event on the race card.

Taking the track for time trials, Kosiski posted the third overall fastest lap with a time of 19.120 seconds, averaging 94.142mph around the half mile speedway. With the inverted qualifying format, Andrew rolled off from the fifth starting position in the eight lap heat race. On lap one Kosiski would immediately challenge Corey Zeitner for the third position, but coming off of turn four to complete the circuit the Certified Transmission No. 53 lost traction slipping Kosiski back to the sixth position. Andrew held position the rest of the way to finish sixth.

With the special format of combining time trial points and heat race points, Kosiski started the 22 lap feature from the inside fourth row, and at the drop of the green flag his MB Custom chassis went forward. By lap three Andrew took over the fourth position using the bottom groove. Taking advantage of a lap eight caution flag, AK once again used the bottom lane to get around Ryan Griffith and Kyle Berck on the restart to take over the 2nd position. On lap 11 Kosiski surrendered the runner up spot back to Berck but kept the interval close until the two entered lap traffic with just a handful of laps remaining. At the checkers it was Tad Pospisil edging out Berck in a photo finish for the victory, Andrew finished third followed by Chad Holladay and Brian Kosiski. (Todd Boyd photo)

Kosiski took to the track in the second qualifying group of the night posting a lap of 14.553 seconds which was good enough for second place overall. His time was just 0.015 seconds off of the quick time set by Kyle Berck. With the inverted qualifying system, Andrew rolled off the the grid in the fifth position of his heat race. With track conditions making it hard to pass, Kosiski’s No. 53 would run fifth until a caution flew with just a few laps remaining. Andrew then took advantage of the restart maneuvering his way through traffic to finish third.

Starting tenth in the 25 lap A feature, Kosiski fought traffic early on the 1/3 mile high-banked oval. Racing in a gaggle of cars for the seventh position, Andrew was forced high as the field raced three and four wide, resulting in him falling all the way back to the 13th position. Kosiski used a mid race caution to pick two spots back up, but that was it as he then rode the rest of the race to finish 11th.

Andrew sits in sixth in the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series point standings. For more results from this event, please visit www.SLMRSeries.com.
