The 2019 season saw Andrew Kosiski compete in a total of 40 events aboard his Kosiski Auto Parts No. 53 Late Model entry.

He also finished seventh in the final Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series point standings.

November 17, 2019 - Kosiski Teams with Getzschman Racing For 2020 Season
Andrew Kosiski and Getzschman Racing will partner in the 2020 season for a selected number of open late model events. Karl and Tracie Getzschman, owners of All Makes Collision Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, has been a major supporter of the Andrew Kosiski Racing Team for the past two and a half season’s and they will begin the new decade with an even bigger partnership as they nab AK as their open late model driver.

The Getzschman’s have recently acquired an XR1 Rocket Chassis from the Dunn Benson Motorsports stable out of North Carolina, a car that was last raced by Eddie Carrier Jr. at the Dirt Million. Kosiski will keep with a familiar engine builder as the team will put a Pro Power Racing Engines under the hood.

Kosiski and the All Makes Collision Team will race a selected number of events in 2020. Three races that have already been slated on the schedule so far is the 28th edition of the Show Me 100 at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland Missouri, the 10th annual Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway, and the Late Model Nationals at the famed Knoxville Raceway. Additional races will be added in the coming months.

Kosiski will continue to wheel his family owned #53 MB Custom chassis in 2020 as Team 53 will once again follow the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series as well as race for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series State Championship at I-80 Speedway.

October 12, 2019 - Kosiski Claims Pair of Podium Finishes at The Cornhusker Classic
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 closed out the 2019 race season at the I-80 Speedway Saturday night with the annual Cornhusker Classic. This would be Andrew’s first time this season pulling double duty, sporting his familiar family owned No. 53 in the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series plus driving the Karl and Tracie Getzschman owned All Makes Collision Center No. 18 in the Bragging Rights Late Model Series.

AK kicked off the night with two heat race wins. Starting from the pole in each heat race, Kosiski led all six laps in the Bragging Rights race and all eight laps in the Malvern Bank Series race to comfortably cruise to victory.

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. Kosiski used a turn four last lap pass to get by Bridge at the line to take the 2nd position in the final run down. This was Andrew’s fourth race behind the wheel of the All Makes Collision No. 18 in the last two years, and he has collected four runner up finishes in those starts.

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. Kosiski jumped to the third position on lap one, but after a gaggle of cautions and restarts on lap two, Kosiski made the pass for second from Robbie Andersen until a lap seven restart when Andersen got the advantage to retake the position. The race went caution free the final 23 circuits and lap traffic came into play big time. Andrew was able to drive past the No. 82 of Andersen on lap 19, but it was the No. 04 of Tad Pospisil making the same move on lap 24 dropping AK to the third position where he took the checkered flag.

October 9, 2019 - AK To Pull Double Duty at Cornhusker Classic
Andrew Kosiski will be in action this coming Saturday at the I-80 Speedway’s Cornhusker Classic. Pulling double duty for the first time this season, Kosiski will be competing in both the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series and the Bragging Rights Late Model Series in the last major stock car race in the state of Nebraska this decade.

Saturday night, AK will be behind the wheel of the All Makes Collision Center No. 18 Rocket Chassis owned by Karl and Tracie Getzschman. This will be Andrew’s second start of the season in the Bragging Rights Series, on September 15th he drove to a runner up finish at the Tiny Lund Memorial at the Shelby County Speedway in Harlan, Iowa.

The Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series will be in action one final time this year; the Cornhusker Classic will mark race number 19 of the 2019 season. After winning one of the season opening qualifying features at the I-80 Speedway, Kosiski has experienced much heartbreak during the Malvern Bank Series campaign. Experiencing three wrecks while running in the top five, two engine failures, and one mechanical failure, Andrew sits 8th in the series points standings with 3 top fives and 11 top ten finishes in points paying races.

LAST WEEKEND OUT: AK picked up the win at The New Raceway Park last Saturday night in the season ending Tri-State Late Model Series event. After running second for the opening 18 laps, Kosiski used a lap 19 restart to get by race leader Chad Olsen, then set sail the remaining laps to pick up the $1,000 victory.

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.
