After the longest off season of his career, Andrew Kosiski kicked off his 2020 campaign Saturday night at the Independence Motor Speedway as the Hoker Trucking LLC Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series raced for a $3,000 pay day.

Making his first career start at the highbanks, Kosiski timed in 16th overall out of 31 cars. Starting second row inside, AK jumped into the runner up position on lap one of his heat race behind Chris Simpson. Simpson would lead every lap with Andrew finishing 2nd.

The 35 lap main event was a tough one for the No. 53, Kosiski battled with Simpson, Tad Pospisil, and JC Wyman early on; after the second yellow of the race on lap 19, Andrew found himself sitting in the eight position where he started. The final 16 laps went green and Andrew faded towards the end coming across the line in 10th place.

Kosiski set sail in the 35 lap A main event from the outside of row two. Andrew settled into the fourth position in the early laps until he made the pass on Curt Schroeder for third just before the yellow flag came out on lap 13. It appeared as though Kosiski was in the cat bird seat as he was set to restart on the bottom which had become the preferred lane, but the restart seen the No. 04 of Tad Pospisil get underneath the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53, allowing a freight train of drivers to get by. AK fell to 7th in the running order, but was able to retake 6th, and then used a late race restart to take over the 5th position during the closing laps to finish off the feature event.

The 20 lap Bragging Rights A main event seen the No. 18 start from the inside of row two and drop back to fourth on lap one. After a few early cautions, Kosiski would battle for position early on until taking over the third position at the half way point. AK then ran down the No. 83 of Jake Bridge and took over the the runner up spot on lap 17, but Bridge returned the favor regaining the position the next lap.

The 30 lap Malvern Bank Series main event would also see Andrew roll off the grid from the second row, but this time from the outside.

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.
