May 7, 2021 - AK Rolls To Runner Up Finish at Rock Rapids
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 took to the banks of Rapid Speedway Friday night for the first of two Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series races this weekend. Kosiski would start on the pole and lead the opening circuits but would come up just short at the finish.

Qualifying time trials started the evening with Andrew laying down a lap of 16.591 seconds which was good for 7th overall fastest. Starting second row outside in the heat race the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Nebraska Bullnose, 4Seams Academy, Select Auto Sales Omaha, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care, We'll Smoke U BBQ, Super Clean, Mars Race Cars No. 53 advanced two positions giving AK enough overall qualifying points to start on the pole of the 30 lap feature event.

At the drop of the green Andrew would jump out to a big lead using the bottom side of the speedway. AK held the top spot until lap 11 when Kyle Berck used the middle of the speedway to get by. Berck stretched the lead to 2.5 seconds but lap traffic allowed Kosiski to reel him back in during the closing laps. Closing the gap to under a half second Andrew couldn’t capitalize and would come across the line in the runner up position.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made a rare Tuesday night appearance at the I-80 Speedway for the season opening Lucas Oil MLRA race. Kosiski started the 35 lap main event in the fifth position and brought home a respectable 9th place finish at the checkered flags.

Qualifying time trials were first to hit the track as Andrew set a lap of 16.889 seconds which was 3rd fastest in Group A and 5th fastest overall. That performance put Kosiski on the outside front row of the first heat race where he would finish in the second position behind California’s Jason Papich.

Starting inside third row of the 35 lap A main event, AK struggled on exit of turn two early on.

“I kept on hitting the slime in two” said Kosiski, “I was only making a good corner about one out of every four laps.”

By the fifth circuit Andrew had fallen back to the 10th position, but finding the groove back on the bottom side of the speedway he began battling with the No. 49 of fellow MB Custom driver Jake Timm for the 9th spot. The two traded off the position five times in the 30 lap run to the finish where the All Makes Collision Center , Certified Transmission , Nebraska Bullnose, 4Seams Academy No. 53 finally gained the edge for good with nine laps to go.

I-80 Speedway’s Spring Meltdown sanctioned by the Malvern Bank
Super Late Model Series. (Todd Boyd photo)

Andrew began the night setting quick time in group A and was overall 2nd fastest in qualifying. Starting the heat race in the 6th position, Kosiski had a major slip up on the first lap on the exit of turn two almost spinning out his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Nebraska Bullnose, 4Seams Academy No. 53. Falling way behind the pack AK kept his foot on the gas working his way up through the field taking the 4th position on the white flag lap and narrowly edging out Robbie Andersen at the checkered flag to finish 3rd in the eight lap race.

The 15 lap qualifying feature began with some great racing at the drop of the green. Starting second row inside Andrew and Tad Pospisil raced side by side for the opening laps until it became a three car battle for second as they tried to pass polesitter JC Wyman on lap five. Kosiski took the advantage going into turn three but entered too hard causing him to push up the track allowing Pospisil to take the runner up spot coming off of turn four. Andrew then battled with Wyman for third until finally securing the spot on lap 8; finishing out the 15 lap race Andrew was able to cut some of the deficit to 2nd place Brian Kosiski but couldn’t get close enough.

“I had a really fast car all night that I wasn’t very happy with” said Kosiski. “We need to get this thing driving a little better.”

Saturday night’s $4000 to win finale at I-80 Speedway begins at 6pm.

November 18, 2020 - 2020 Review: Andrew Kosiski Racing
With the 2020 calendar getting smaller and smaller, and a bright 2021 on the horizon, it’s time to take a look back at the crazy roller coaster of a season that it was for Andrew Kosiski and Team 53.

With the world’s pandemic hitting early in the year it was uncertain in the early months on how much racing Andrew would get in his 16th season behind the wheel. With basically all the races being canceled in March and April the team would use this time to get pre season testing done which proved to be costly. Not one, but two engine failures came about in the practice sessions putting the Team behind the 8-Ball before the first competitive green flag waved.

The month of May seen more cancellations of races, but the light at the end of the tunnel was getting brighter as the first Malvern Bank Series race of the year was scheduled at the Stuart Speedway on May 24th. Unfortunately after a few heat races were in the books the sky’s opened up and Mother Nature ruined the party. The following weekend however had Central Missouri Speedway on the schedule, with a great forecast and the car ready to go Kosiski was finally ready to hit the track for the first time during the final weekend in May.

The Thursday before the race Andrew started feeling sick, by Friday he was really sick, and on race day he made the decision not to attend. What was thought to be a bad case of the flu, turned out to be a positive Covid-19 test. Kosiski ended up spending a few days in the hospital on an oxygen machine before being released to be on the oxygen machine at home. It took a few weeks to get over the virus, but he did, however the racing world got under way. Missing four Malvern Bank Series races and two Hoker Trucking LLC Series races, championship contention was out of the question for both series.

A pair of Hoker Trucking races on June 19th and 20th was set as the first races of the year, but once again Mother Nature had other ideas canceling both. A three day swing the following weekend again started with a rain out, but June 27th was finally the day that the 2020 race season got under way. In his first trip to Independence Motor Speedway Andrew finished in the 10th position in the A main event. The following night at the Mason City Motor Speedway Kosiski brought home a top five finish in his first visit at that track, getting the season underway in the right direction.

July would see the start of the NASCAR season at I-80 Speedway, a five race mini season that was Andrew’s only opportunity to pick up a Championship. A runner up finish followed by an 8th place result gave the All Makes Collision Center , Certified Transmission , Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean , Select Auto Omaha , Omni Inventive Care , We'll Smoke U BBQ , Mars Race Cars No. 53 a good start to the year. Another top ten finish at the Boone County Raceway gave Kosiski momentum going into two weeks of racing with the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series. Unfortunately the team struggled at both the Show Me 100 and the Silver Dollar Nationals. The only bright spot of the Silver Dollar weekend was a strong run in the Wednesday night Malvern Bank Series race, starting 20th in the 40 lap event, AK raced to a 6th place finish.

The month of August was finally a full month of racing. With 10 races getting in the books Andrew picked up five top five finishes, including four in the final five races of the month.

Heading to the Yankee Dirt Track Classic for the second year in a row, Andrew finished 6th during a rough and wild first night, while pulling off to save his equipment during night two. The following night was the season championship night at I-80 Speedway, with three top fives in the four races thus far, Andrew needed to win and get a little help in the final race to claim the championship. Kosiski did his part racing to a comfortable victory, but Ben Schaller took the championship by six points after finishing third. The following weekend seen another strong performance at I-80 Speedway during the Casey’s Midwest Fall Brawl. Andrew was running down Tad Pospisil in the closing laps of the main event, but just ran out of time to finish 2nd.

Debuting a Rocket XR1 for the I-80 Nationals with the Lucas Oil Series, Andrew once again struggled. Not making the feature any of the three nights, AK ended up 1 for 7 in making features with the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series in 2020.

Wrapping up the season Andrew finished 9th at the Davenport Governor’s Cup race, and the first weekend of October was set to be the final races of both the Malvern Bank and Hoker Trucking seasons. Going into Lakeside Speedway with hopes to continue with strong performances, the No. 53 ended up going for a wild ride down the front straightaway. Going home with a destroyed race car, Andrew visited the University of Nebraska Medical Center Sports Medicine Team for concussion assessment. After being deemed ok to race, Kosiski made his final start of the season for Getzschman Racing at I-80 Speedway’s Cornhusker Classic. Starting in the middle of row one in the three wide start, Andrew dominated the caution plagued race. With the race being shortened to a green-white-checkered finish, Kosiski lost the lead to Cory Dumpert in turns one and two, and after contact was made when Andrew crossed him over down the back straightaway, AK took matters into his own hands spinning the No. 77 along with himself.

From starting the year in the hospital to ending it there, from running really good to struggling, from blowing engines to destroying a car, 2020 was definitely a roller coaster for Andrew and Team 53.

Season ending statistics show in 23 feature starts Andrew had one win, 9 Top 5’s and 16 top 10’s.

Andrew was runner up in the I-80 Speedway NASCAR standings, while finishing 10th in the Hoker Trucking East Series and 13th in the Malvern Bank West Series standings.

October 10, 2020 - Domination Turns To Last Lap Chaos For Kosiski at Cornhusker Classic
Andrew Kosiski and the Getzschman Racing Team entered night number two of the Cornhusker Classic with high expectations, but after dominating the feature event, a chaotic last lap turned into a DNF for the All Makes Collision Center No. 18. (Unique Perspective Photography)

With qualifying heat races on Friday night, Saturday’s 25 lap main event was the only race on the card for Andrew as he started in the middle of row one in the three wide start. It took multiple attempts to get the race started, but once it did Kosiski found himself in the third position on lap two when the yellow waved again. This time AK was able to use a run off the top of turn two to take the lead on the restart and keep it until the yellow came out again on lap three. The race seen numerous yellows after one or two laps time after time, each restart Andrew was able to drive away from the pack until lap 13 when the caution came out again erasing Kosiski’s 1.895 second lead. Track officials declared that the race would be shortened to a five lap shootout with the race being called if another yellow flag came out.

The restart, which ended up being the last one of the race, started with second place Cory Dumpert taking a big dive into turn one to try and pass Kosiski. “He drove it in there too hard to try and make something happen, I kind of expected it with them cutting the race short” said Andrew, “I either had to hit the brakes or get doored, so I hit the brakes and turned underneath him. I got the run coming off two underneath him and he turned left and he hit me a few times down the back straightaway. So as we entered turn three I didn’t turn and took him out.”

“You don’t race guys like that” stated Andrew, “you race guys like that and every time you’re going to get taken out or junked.”

“Big thanks to Karl and Tracie for putting this thing together, hate that it got torn up, but we had the best car and should of won the race.”

Kosiski was credited with a 12th place finish in the event.

October 9, 2020 - AK Set For Front Row Starting Spot at the Cornhusker Classic
Andrew Kosiski with the Getzschman Racing Team took to the 4/10th of a mile I-80 Speedway Friday night for night one of the 2020 edition of the Speedway Motors Cornhusker Classic. Kosiski came away with the third highest passing points total for the night earning him a front row starting spot in tonight’s three wide start in the main event.

Andrew started fifth in heat race number one in the All Makes Collision Center , Thrifty Car Rental , Dollar Car Rental , Rocket Chassis No. 18. He would patiently use the bottom side of the speedway early on making his way through the field. Taking the lead on lap 8 of 10, Kosiski went on to win by 1.3 seconds over second place Jacob Hobscheidt.

Heat race number two seen AK start outside the third row, but it was 7th place starter Corey Dumpert getting the lead on lap one as Andrew grabbed the second position on the first circuit. Kosiski would lose ground each lap to No. 77, and when the checkered flew Andrew would be 2.6 seconds behind.

With the win and 2nd place finish Andrew took the third highest passing points total behind Dumpert and Hobscheidt, with starting position selection later today, Kosiski will be on the front row of the three wide start.

October 7, 2020 - Kosiski Aims For Getzschman Racing Debut at Cornhusker Classic
Andrew Kosiski looks to make his 2020 debut with the Getzschman Racing Team this Friday and Saturday, as the annual Speedway Motors Cornhusker Classic comes to the I-80 Speedway . This will be Kosiski’s first race of the season with the Bragging Rights Late Model Series, as the two day $1,000 to win event closes out this year’s racing action at the Greenwood, Nebraska raceway.

Andrew will debut a brand new Rocket Chassis XR1 sponsored by All Makes Collision Center , Thrifty Car Rental , and Dollar Car Rental for car owners Karl and Tracie Getzschman who own All Makes Collision in Council Bluffs, Iowa. AK has partnered with All Makes Collision for the last three seasons on his family owned No. 53 super late model, meanwhile making selected starts over the years for the Getzschman Racing Team in the Bragging Rights division. In every start in the No. 18 machine Kosiski has finished runner up 2nd place, with this weekend’s only goal being to end up in victory lane.

Thursday night’s practice session will see Kosiski test out the new car and himself. After last weekend’s wild roll at the Lakeside Speedway, Andrew visited the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Sports Medicine Team for concussion testing. The UNMC doctors deemed Kosiski could participate in this weekend’s races as long as he doesn’t have any set backs from the practice session.

Andrew was the 2015 Bragging Rights Series Champion, which was his last full time season in that division.

October 2, 2020 - Kosiski Ends Malvern Bank Season with Wild Roll at Lakeside
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 went into the final weekend of Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series competition with expectations of finishing off the season on a high note, but a lap 18 restart at the Lakeside Speedway proved disastrous as the No. 53 went air born and tumbled multiple times down the front stretch at the big half mile. (Todd Boyd photo)

Qualifying time trials seen the All Makes Collision Center , Certified Transmission , Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean , No. 53 set fifth fastest time, lining him outside of row two in the eight lap heat race. Andrew was able to hold his ground until the final lap where he passed Jake Neal to finish third; this result gave Kosiski the outside row two starting spot in the 25 lap main event.

At the drop of the green flag the race was to get to the bottom as the preferred groove was right around the hub. AK tried his luck on the top side and after getting into the wall on lap three he fell from 4th to 9th. The race went into a long green flag run with Andrew maintaining his position in line. After losing a position on lap 15 the yellow flag would wave on lap 18 setting up a restart with 7 laps to go. This is when all hell broke loose as two cars entered the spin cycle just past the flag stand causing evasive maneuvers by the field; with the track being blocked Kosiski slowed his car as he entered the wreckage, but at the same time he was hit in the drivers door sending the car into a violent tumble down the front straightaway. The car caught major air and fell hard to the ground each time. The safety crew reached the car helping Andrew exit his destroyed machine. Making the trip back to the pit area in the ambulance he would be released and was not transported to the hospital.

The team returned to Omaha Friday night and will skip the season ending Hoker Trucking Series race in Moberly, Missouri on Saturday.

Huge thank you to Mars Race Cars for building a durable chassis that kept the driver safe.
