Starting last in the heat race, Kosiski jumped to the bottom side of the speedway at the drop of the green moving up three spots on lap one to the eight position.

After starting fifth and finishing fifth in his heat race, Kosiski would have to line up his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53 in the 15th starting position for the 20 lap A main event. At the drop of the green the 22 car starting field found that ripping the cushion around the big 4/10th of a mile speedway was the preferred way around. Andrew, starting on the inside of row eight, immediately began working the low side of the track to try and gain track position. AK’s MB Custom chassis worked well on the bottom picking cars off one by one. The race went 20 laps straight through and when it was all said and done Kosiski took home an 8th place finish.

Andrew Kosiski took to the track for the first time in 2020 with the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series Sunday night at the Boone County Raceway, Kosiski took a bad draw and managed a top ten finish in the 25 lap A main event.

The night started off with qualifying time trials, after drawing 27th out of 36 cars, Andrew took to the track for his fast laps late in the session. Unfortunately the track had slowed down a great deal from the cars that went out early and Kosiski timed in 17th overall.

After the invert, AK started outside front row of the 10 lap heat race where he jumped to an early lead and set the pace for the first seven laps. On lap eight Kyle Berck would make the move in turns 3 and 4 getting by the No. 53; Andrew battled back on the inside of the No. 14 but couldn’t return the favor taking second place at the finish.

The 25 lap main saw Kosiski take the green from outside of row six. A lap seven caution flag seen had Andrew still in the 12th position on the leaderboard, but after the restart he would gain two spots before the yellow came out again on lap eight. The ensuing restart brought a battle for the 9th position between the No. 53, the No. 1 of Dylan Schmer, and the No. 26JR of Corey Zeitner. Zeitner prevailed with Kosiski and Schmer following and the rest of the race it remained that way with Andrew finishing 10th.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made the short drive to I-80 Speedway Friday night for the season opening NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series event. When it was all said and done Kosiski brought home a second place podium finish.

After finishing runner up in his heat race qualifier, the redraw and invert would line AK up in the third row for the 20 lap main event. At the drop of the green Andrew was on the move forward as he advanced two spots on lap one, by the end of the second circuit he was in the runner up spot and on lap three the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53 was challenging for the lead. Kosiski and Bill Leighton Jr. raced side by side for a half dozen laps but Andrew could not get the traction coming off of turn four to complete the pass. Andrew finally lost ground entering turn one on lap eight giving Leighton the full advantage. The two maintained separation until lap traffic came into play and Andrew quickly closed the deficit again. It would get down to a few car lengths but the yellow waved on lap 18 giving the leaders a two lap shoot out to settle it. However Leighton nailed the restart and AK completed the last two circuits in his tire tracks to finish 2nd. (Buck Monson photo)

October 5, 2019 - Andrew Kosiski Wins at The New Raceway Park
A last minute decision seen Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 make their way to The New Raceway Park for the season ending Tri-State Late Model Series event. Pulling into the speedway just in time for hot laps, Kosiski would cap off a perfect night by taking the lead with six laps remaining to win the 25 lap main event.

Heat race action started the night off with Kosiski starting from the pole and leading all eight laps to take the win over Bill Leighton Jr. The top two finishers would redraw for feature starting spots where Andrew once again drew the number one pill to put him on the point of the 18 car A feature.

At the drop of the green it was outside pole sitter Chad Olsen getting the jump and taking the lead on lap one. Olsen held the lead through two early cautions as AK fought to hold the runner up spot over Nick Beyenhof; but after choosing the top side on the second restart Andrew set sail for Olsen’s #10 machine. The leaders hit lap traffic right at the half way point allowing Kosiski to narrow the margin as he drove the middle of the track. The yellow flag would wave with seven laps remaining giving the leaders clean air to race for the win. Andrew chose the bottom for the restart and driving it hard into turn one he was able to make the pass coming off of turn two. AK then drove his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Select Auto Sales, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care Mars Race Cars No. 53 away from the field the last five laps to take his first career Tri-State Late Model Series victory!

October 3, 2019 - Kosiski Cancels Trip to Wheatland
Andrew Kosiski is canceling this weekend’s trip to the Lucas Oil Speedway for the Big Buck 50 ULMA sanctioned races Friday and Saturday night.

After putting together an engine to meet ULMA rules, Kosiski could not get his MB Custom No. 53 to meet the required deck height specified in the ULMA rule book. Unfortunately the rules for the ULMA differs from all other late model series (Malvern Bank, Lucas Oil, MLRA, Tri-State) that Team 53 has competed in this year, and the only way to meet the specifications would be to completely rebuild the entire decking in the car.

Andrew and Team 53 were looking forward to returning to the Lucas Oil Speedway as the Wheatland Missouri speed plant has been one of their favorites over the years; but they will not show up to a race illegal and therefore having to cancel this weekend’s trip.
