Kosiski was on the move at the drop of the green in the main event. Getting around Jason O'Brien, Brad Perdue, and Zach Zeitner; Andrew moved from seventh to fourth in the running order by the time the caution flew on lap four. After the restart, Kosiski resided in the fourth position throughout the middle portion of the race, and as the racing groove narrowed and lap traffic came into play, Andrew would be racing against Ben Schaller for the third position. With three laps remaining, Kosiski faulted in lap traffic racing with Schaller allowing O’Brien to get by. The running order would stay the same the rest of the way as Bill Leighton Jr took the win, followed by Paul Glendenning, Schaller, O’Brien, and Kosiski.

This was Andrew’s 14th top five finish of the season, in comparison last year he totaled only six for the entire season.

Kosiski gained two positions early as there was an accident on lap one of the A feature. Restarting the race in ninth, Andrew quickly moved into the sixth position by lap two. As the field spread out it became a race of running clean laps. Kosiski moved his way into the top five on lap ten when he was able to get around the No. 82 of Robbie Andersen, and at that point he set his attention to Brian Kosiski who was over a second ahead in fourth. Andrew closed the deficit to three tenths of a second between the two Kosiski’s over the middle portion of the event, but Brian reopened it back up in the last five laps as the race went non-stop after the lap one yellow.

Kosiski’s feature event seen him advance two positions in the 25 laps, picking up positions on both Brian Kosiski, who started fourth row inside, and Krug who was involved in an accident in the closing laps. The sixth place finish kept Andrew in the points chase still, though the top five finishers in the race were the top five in points. Ben Schaller, who won the race, now sits 74 markers ahead of Kosiski, with Kyle Berck in second +58, followed by Bill Leighton Jr. (+40), Tad Pospisil (+32) and Jason O'Brien (+22).

Saturday evening Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 had their eyes set on the Junction Motor Speedway for the 25 lap, $2,000 to win event which was the back half of a Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series weekend doubleheader.

Kosiski would have trouble passing in the heat race after starting in the third row. Dropping one spot and finishing sixth in the eight lap event, Andrew was forced to run the last chance qualifier to make the A feature.

Starting from the outside front row, Kosiski drove to victory in the last chance qualifier. This would start him eighth row inside of the main, but before the feature could make it on track, rain showers entered the facility canceling the rest of the evening. At this time it is unclear if the feature event will be raced at a later date.

July 20, 2018 - Kosiski Impressive in Go50, Silver Dollar Nationals End Early
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made their way to the I-80 Speedway for the 8th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals this weekend. The Silver Dollar Nationals is a three day event featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series which compete in separate events.

Thursday night Andrew would be pulling double duty racing in both the Lucas Oil Series Go50 and the Malvern Bank Series $5,300 to win event.

Kosiski started the evening off in Lucas Oil Series qualifying posting the seventh fastest time in his group. That effort would start him second row outside in the heat race which was action packed. After an early yellow for Terry Phillips, Andrew found himself racing for the fourth and final transfer spot with Bobby Pierce. The Certified Transmission No. 53 gained the advantage over Pierce as race leader Josh Richards went up in smoke. Richard’s misfortune resulted in Kosiski moving into the third position where he went on to finish.

Andrew would start the Go50 feature event in the tenth position. The opening lap saw Kosiski come out swinging as he hooked the cushion and drove his way towards the top five. As the race progressed Andrew would slip back towards the rear of the top ten during a string of yellow flags, and around the half way mark of the race a broken left rear shock would slow his pace and force him to retire from the event.

The Malvern Bank Series portion of the night would see Kosiski start sixth in his heat race and finish second. That result landed a third row inside starting position in the main event and at the drop of the green Andrew struggled to find traction as he fought an ill handling car. Falling back to the ninth position, the set up started to come around as track conditions changed. Kosiski charged to the sixth position in the late stages of the race and went on to finish there. Top finishers in the event were Bill Leighton Jr., Tad Pospisil, Kyle Berck, Ben Schaller, and Corey Zeitner.

Friday night Andrew would enter the Silver Dollar Nationals sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series. The double heat race format seen Kosiski line up ninth in his first heat race. Unfortunately contact with the outside wall would send the No.53 pit side resulting in a DNF. The damaged right front suspension received in the contact forced Kosiski to miss the second heat race, and the team decided to retire from the rest of the weekend’s racing activities.

Early heat race action would see Andrew start third row inside of the second super late model heat race. After a lap one caution, the field would restart single file with the No. 53 still in the fifth position. With track conditions favoring the bottom, Kosiski would jump out of line to try and complete a pass for fourth, unfortunately the pass was unsuccessful and doing so he would get freight trained and fall back to the eighth position. Staying in line he would come across in the eighth position at the checkered flag forcing him to run the last chance qualifier.

Starting eighth in the LCQ, Andrew would be able to improve by three positions and capture the final transfer position to the first 20 lap feature event.

A feature number one would see a crash on the opening lap in which Kosiski had to spin to avoid the wrecked cars, but the following restart he would take off moving into the 14th position quickly from his 20th place starting spot. With track conditions still favoring one lane, Andrew would slowly pick off cars making his way towards the top ten until he broke into the top ten with just two laps to go. On the final lap Kosiski would get by Zach Zeitner and finish off the race in the ninth position.

To set the line up for the second feature, Andrew started on the pole and won B feature number one. That finish locked in a fifth row inside starting spot in the second A feature event.

Kosiski once again proved to have a strong car in the night cap. After starting ninth, he would make the pass for fourth on lap ten and go on to finish there in the caution free race. John Anderson would take the win, followed by Ben Schaller, Bill Leighton Jr., Andrew Kosiski, and Sterling Perkins.

Kosiski would retake the third position back from Matt Buller before the halfway point of the eight lap race and continued on to finish third at the checkered flag. Finishing in the top three gave Andrew an inside third row starting position in the 25 lap main event.

After a caution flag on lap one, Kosiski quickly made his way into the runner up position in the main event. However, outside pole sitter Josh Krug would set a blistering pace early on in his No. 4K, opening up a two second advantage in the first ten laps. The middle portion of the race would see Andrew lower the deficit as the race took a long green flag run. By lap 18 Krug’s lead went from two seconds to less than two tenths of a second as the leaders entered lap traffic. Though just one lap later Kosiski would slip up in the traffic allowing Bill Leighton Jr. to drive past for position.

Kosiski paced the field for the first five circuits until Bill Leighton Jr. powered by to take the lead on lap six. Trying to keep pace with Leighton, the duo entered lap traffic by lap ten and Kosiski would stretch the deficit between him and third place Jason O'Brien to over four seconds by lap 15 when the caution flag would come out. With the field bunched up, O’Brien would get around the No. 53 on the restart and Kosiski would just not have the speed he had at the beginning of the race to set up a return pass. The race went caution free the rest of the way as Leighton picked up the win, followed by O’Brien, Kosiski, Ben Schaller and Brad Perdue.

Unfortunately the early speed wouldn’t continue into the feature. From the drop of the green flag the car’s handling wasn’t up to par.

After a couple of caution flags, the race would once again regain rhythm which created a good battle for the third position between Andrew and Jason O'Brien.

The field would reset and Andrew would lead the green-white-checkered finish to pick up his sixth heat race win of the season.

Kosiski would start the 25 lap feature event in the fourth position and quickly move his way into third on lap one. He stayed in that position until lap seven when the No. 15 of Jason O'Brien slipped by, however Andrew would take advantage of a lap 15 restart passing by Paul Glendenning to regain the third spot.

At the halfway point Andrew would take over the second position looking to pick up the win. Though after gaining on race leader Tad Pospisil some, he couldn’t make up the difference finishing the race in the second position.

The main event would see a slow start as two yellow flags flew in the first two laps. Luckily Kosiski would be able to take advantage of the start moving from the eighth starting position to fourth in that time. When the race resumed Andrew would quickly move into third, racing behind leader Kyle Berck and Pospisil. The race would see a long green flag run, and with the help of lap traffic Kosiski would be able to shave Berck’s 2.5 second lead to just seven tenths of a second as he followed Pospisil’s No. 04. There would be two green-white-checkered attempts as the race came to a close, but the race order would stay the same.

June 2, 2018 - Kosiski Bags a Pair of Top 10 Finishes
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 would make the haul to Sioux Speedway for the second event of the year for the Tri-State Late Model Series. This would be the the first time that Kosiski raced at the speedway and with the Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota based series. (Jeff Bylsma photo)

Andrew would start third and finish third in the eight lap heat race. Unfortunately at the conclusion of the heat the engine would be very warm from the unfavorable track condition due to the mid-ninety degree temperatures that have swept the Midwest this week.

The decision was made to skip tonight’s feature and take the Certified Transmission No. 53 back home to clean out the cooling system to prevent any damage to the power plant.

The first night of the month of June would see Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 return to I-80 Speedway for the fourth night of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series weekly points racing.

Starting third row outside in the eight lap heat race, Andrew would patiently make his way towards the front. With a couple laps remaining he would make the pass for the third position and go on to finish third, claiming the last invert position.

The 25 lap feature event would see the Certified Transmission No. 53 roll off in the eighth position. From the drop of the green flag Kosiski would consistently move his way forward through the field. Picking off a position every 4 to 5 laps, Andrew would find himself sitting in the fourth position on lap 18 when the only caution flag of the race would come out. At first it appeared the stoppage in the race could be beneficial as it erased a five second differential between Kosiski and third place Bill Leighton Jr. Though the restart would prove costly as Andrew would slip back to the eighth position after the green would fly. He would hold his ground the last handful of circuits to come home with an 8th place finish. Top finishers of the event were John Anderson, Leighton, Josh Krug, Kyle Berck, and Corey Zeitner.

Saturday night Team 53 would travel to the Adams County Speedway - Corning IA for NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing. The speedway would salute the local farmers, and the community would respond with a standing room only crowd at the big half mile.

Heat race action would see the No. 53 on a rail. Starting third row inside, Andrew would work his way to the front and win the eight lap qualifying race. This would be his fifth heat race win of the 2018 season.

The momentum from the heat race would not carry over to the 25 lap feature event. Starting third row outside, the combination of an ill handling car and track conditions that made it hard to pass, Kosiski would back up one spot to finish 7th.

Team 53 would kick off the Memorial Day weekend by heading to Rapid Speedway in the northwest corner of Iowa for the second Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series race of the year.

Heat race action would see Andrew start on the outside front row and finish in the runner up position to Corey Zeitner. With 36 cars entered in the event, the 2nd place finish would line the No. 53 up in the inside of row four for the 25 lap main event.

Unfortunately at the drop of the green flag Kosiski would back track a few positions to the 13th position, and after a few caution flags he would only be able to work his way back to finish 11th.

Early race action would see Andrew improve two spots in the ten lap heat race. Starting fourth, he would once again finish runner up to Corey Zeitner. Being seventh overall in passing points, Kosiski would line up fourth row inside for the 30 lap main event.

From the drop of the green the No. 53 would struggle, sliding back after each restart, Andrew would find himself in the 15th position until a wreck involving the leaders about two thirds of the way through the event. Picking up a few free spots under yellow would get Kosiski back towards the top ten, but getting caught up in an accident himself on lap 21 would send him to the back of the lead lap and to ultimately finish 16th.

Kosiski and Team 53 would make their way to Raceway Park for the final stop of the Stars and Stripes Weekend with the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series.

Kosiski would kick off the night starting on the pole of the heat race and and taking the checkered flag. This would be his fourth heat race win of the season. The win would start the Certified Transmission No. 53 second row outside of the 25 lap feature event.

On the very slick track Andrew would be able to pick up a couple spots early. There would be a caution with only a handful of laps left that would put Kosiski on the back bumper of race leader Paul Glendenning. Andrew would try and use the low line to get by, but at the same time Ben Schaller would use the high line. Schaller would get around both of them to pick up the win. Glendenning would finish second, Kosiski third, followed by Bill Leighton Jr., and Corey Zeitner.

Andrew is currently third in the Gail's Gold Rush Super Late Model Series point standings. For more results from these events, please visit www.SLMRSeries.com.

The restart would see Kosiski work his way into the fourth position, until lap 18 when race leader Jason O'Brien would pull pit side. This would leave Andrew in the third position racing with Ben Schaller and Ben Sukup for the top spot. The three would race closely until a lap 15 yellow, and on the following restart Kosiski would slip into second. With only a handful of laps remaining the #53 would slip to third, but he would regain the position with two laps to go when Jake Neal would pull to the infield.
