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 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.

Kosiski caught Kay quickly as the top lane of the track became the preferred groove; Andrew tried the middle lane of the speedway to get along side of Kay but would have to fall back in line as he was receiving pressure from the No. 29 of Spencer Diercks. In the closing laps AK would get along side of Kay but couldn’t complete the pass coming across the line in the 10th position. After a disqualification Kosiski was credited with a 9th place finish.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made another venture to the I-80 Speedway Saturday for the second to last points event of the season for the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series . Kosiski closed the deficit in the closing laps on race leader Tad Pospisil, but came up short finishing in the second position.

After a week of rain the I-80 Speedway track crew was able to get the facility in good enough condition to allow the Malvern Bank Series to get race number fourteen of the season underway. With no qualifying the draw set the heat race lineup giving Andrew the second row inside starting spot in the second heat race. Kosiski was able to advance one spot to finish second, giving him the seventh starting spot in the 30 lap A main event.

At the drop of the green the inside lane didn’t get the best jump causing Andrew to fall back to the eighth position on lap three; but AK rebounded on a lap six yellow flag getting a two for one on the restart to move up to sixth. Kosiski kept charging forward and was battling with Kyle Berck and Corey Dumpert for a top five position when the yellow flew again on lap 11.

Kosiski then trailed leader Tad Pospisil by three and a quarter seconds, but in the last five laps he could only cut the deficit down to two seconds as Pospisil took the checkers. Kosiski finished second followed by Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series regular Tyler Bruening in third. (Todd Boyd photo)

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 would finish off a long Labor Day weekend in style by winning the 20 lap NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series race at I-80 Speedway.

Being Championship Sunday the top eight in points were inverted for the first heat race to determine the first four rows of the feature event. Andrew started seventh and was able to gain one position to finish sixth, lining him up third row outside in the A main event.

At the drop of the green Kosiski was on a mission, he took his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean, Select Auto Omaha, Omni Inventive Care, We'll Smoke U BBQ No. 53 from the sixth starting spot to third in the first two corners on lap one. AK rode the bumper of cousin Brian Kosiski on the bottom side of the speedway in the opening laps as the two pressured race leader John Anderson. The caution flew just before the halfway mark for Anderson’s No. 21x that blew an engine coming off of turn four, giving the lead to Brian and placing Andrew in second place. The ensuing restart seen now third place runner Ben Schaller get the jump on Andrew and motor his way into the second position, but Kosiski fought back this time using the upper groove of the track to get back around Schaller.

September 6, 2020 - Kosiski Competes In Yankee Championship Night
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made the long trip east to the 300 Raceway - Farley, Iowa Friday for night one of the 43rd Annual Yankee Dirt Track Classic. Kosiski was able to make it through the calamity of the 35 lap main event to finish in sixth position.

Qualifying time trial seen the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53 lay down the 13th fastest lap out of 50 cars with a time of 16.098. This would line Andrew up on the outside of row two for the heat race where he would jump in the second position on lap one. Kosiski ran in the tire tracks of race leader Corey Dumpert for the first few laps until trying the inside line to make the pass. AK worked on Dumpert’s No. 6 until lap seven when Jason Rauen made an unbelievable run on the top side passing both the front runners. Kosiski would take the checkers in third, thus lining him up fourth row outside in the 35 lap main event.

Lap one, corner one of the A feature was hectic as fifth place starter Dave Eckrich was sent into the spin cycle entering the corner. Andrew’s left side sheet metal would get ripped up in the accident but he would make it through as many cars piled into the wreck. As the race restarted Kosiski settled into the 7th position until the caution flew on lap 6; that ensuing restart would see more trouble for the No. 53 as Jeff Tharp pushed coming off the corner forcing Andrew to make heavy contact with the outside wall. Losing part of the spoiler and quarter panel Kosiski continued on racing in the 7th position; making his way up to 5th due to flat tires by both Tad Pospisil and Andy Eckrich, Andrew stayed in line the rest of the way until the final lap when Ben Schaller was able to sneak by to get the spot, giving Andrew and Team 53 a 6th place finish.

Kosiski rolled into night two of the Yankee Dirt Track Classic with momentum from his 6th place finish Friday night, but a poor qualifying time set the stage for a night that ended with a 24th place finish.

Kosiski opened the evening with a qualifying time of 16.213 seconds which was 23rd fastest overall. With the competitiveness of the Malvern Bank / Hoker Trucking LLC Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series a lap two tenths of a second better would have been good enough for a top ten effort, but that result landed Andrew starting outside front row of the heat race.

In the heat race AK jumped to the early lead over Logan Duffy in turns one and two. Kosiski then led the first seven laps until Bill Leighton Jr. found grip in the outside lane on the final corner to edge Andrew at the checkers. Finishing 2nd sent him to the B feature where he would start on the pole and finish runner up to Andy Eckrich to secure the last transfer spot to the main event.

With 50 laps on the board and $10,000 on the line Kosiski had a task at hand. Starting 22nd the race went into a green flag run to start the event. Not gaining any positions and being lapped on lap 12 Andrew retired from the event on lap 14 to save his equipment for the NASCAR Championship Sunday race at I-80 Speedway. Official results gave AK a 24th place finish.

August 29, 2020 - Kosiski Records a Pair of Third-Place finishes in Malvern Bank Action
Friday night Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 put together their best complete race program of the 2020 race season as the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series returned to the I-80 Speedway. Kosiski capped off the beautiful August evening with a 3rd place finish in the 25 lap main event. (Todd Boyd photo)

Qualifying time trials kicked off the nights festivities with Kosiski laying down a lap of 17.863 seconds which was good for fifth quick overall. Starting third row inside in the heat race Andrew jumped into the fourth position on lap three and was in the tire tracks of second place Jason O’Brien and third place Ben Schaller. The three would race in close corridors for the remains hand full of laps until AK made a last lap, last corner pass on Schaller to secure a third place finish. That pass would give Andrew enough qualifying points to line him up on the pole for the 25 lap main event.

At the drop of the green the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean, Select Auto Omaha, Omni Inventive Care, We'll Smoke U BBQ No. 53 would fall into second place as outside poll sitter Bill Leighton Jr. got the advantage. Kosiski held the second position early on until lap nine when Tad Pospisil began to challenge him for it. Andrew and Tad raced side by side for many laps swapping the runner up spot as the two split lap traffic that had come into play. Kosiski gained the full advantage back on lap 16 right before the caution flag flew on lap 17 for race leader Leighton. This put AK at the top of the leaderboard for a eight lap shootout. Kosiski kept the lead through turns one and two after the restart, but the tricky part of the track was turns three and four and Pospisil would get underneath him coming off to take the lead at the line. Andrew continued to have trouble getting the car to rotate in three and four allowing Schaller to get by for the runner up position on lap 20. A late race restart with a few laps remaining wouldn’t play a factor in the finish and Andrew Kosiski brought home his best series finish of the year in 3rd place.

Saturday night Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 visited the Off Road Speedway where they finished up the back side of a Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series doubleheader weekend. Kosiski would see the same result as the first night at I-80 Speedway and come home with another 3rd place finish in the main event.

Qualifying time trials seen Andrew have another strong run clocking in with a time of 15.323 seconds around the 1/4 mile speedway. That was good for eighth quickest and lined Kosiski up third row inside in the heat race. The All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean, Select Auto Omaha, Omni Inventive Care, We'll Smoke U BBQ No. 53 then advanced two positions in the eight lap heat race to line it up second row outside in the 35 A feature.

With the track prep crew doing a farming session right before the main event the field took the green flag with a fresh racing surface. On lap one Andrew tried to stay even with inside row two starter Zach Zeitner entering turns three and four but got too high allowing fifth place runner Tad Pospisil to get by. Getting back in line Kosiski caught back up to Zeitner, who had fallen to fourth, and was racing in his tire tracks by lap ten. Lap 14 almost proved to be disastrous for the top five as second place runner Charlie McKenna spun entering turn one. Both Zach and Andrew took evasive maneuvers to not cause a pile up narrowly missing the No. 22, and with the caution flag coming out that allowed AK to reset to the fourth position. When the race resumed the bottom groove of the track finally came into play and after a handful of laps Kosiski finally made the pass for third on lap 21. Andrew then went to work cutting the over two second deficit to second place Bill Leighton Jr. to under one second in just eight laps. Lap traffic was tough on the leaders and that proved to be the same for Kosiski as almost all the ground he made up was lost just two laps later until the yellow waved with just four laps remaining. This set up one last double file restart where Andrew sailed it off into the first turn on the outside of Leighton, but unfortunately at this point in the race the bottom had become the dominant groove so he had to tuck back in line down the back straightaway. The remaining laps were calm and Kosiski took the checkered flag in third position behind Pospisil and Leighton and ahead of Kyle Berck and Jim Johnson.

Early heat race action was a tough one, starting from the 7th position AK had to finish in the top three to make the main event invert. With just 8 laps Andrew could only manage to get to the 4th position at the checkered; this result lined him up fourth row inside of the feature.

When the green flag dropped the track was smooth and slick from top to bottom making finding traction the priority. Kosiski ran the bottom on lap one and then jumped to the top on lap two to try and pass the #20V of Rece Vaught. As Andrew entered turn three he made contact with the outside wall with the rear of the car followed by the front of the car. The damage was slight and AK continued on after losing one spot and some time to the leaders. Kosiski quickly got his groove back as he passed for 7th on lap 5, and took over 6th on lap 6. With the race staying green Andrew began trying different lines and by lap 14 he made up a one and a half second deficit to move his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53 into 5th place. Just one lap later he would take over the 4th position after challenging cousin Brian Kosiski on the outside. The race went green the rest of the way as Andrew finished in the 4th position.

This weeks finish gives Kosiski sole possession of 2nd place in the standings with just one week remaining. Andrew trails Ben Schaller by just 12 points with Championship Sunday scheduled for September 6th.

Andrew Kosiski made his first career trip to the West Liberty Raceway Saturday night as the Haulin’ With Hoker Trucking LLC Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series rolled into town for their ninth race of the season.

Sometimes it’s a benefit to be first on the track in qualifying, and sometimes it is a burden, this time it was a burden for the No. 53. Timing in 28th fastest out of 32 cars, it was an uphill climb the rest of the night for Kosiski as that result would put him starting fourth row inside of the fourth heat race. Advancing only one spot in the heat race AK had to run the B feature in which he pulled off half through to save his equipment. Using his first series provisional of the year Andrew rolled off the grid in the 21st starting spot.

With lightening quick track conditions all night Kosiski was hammered down from the drop of the green. For the fourth consecutive race the feature event went caution free and by passing some cars and some cars dropping out Andrew was able to advance nine positions to finish 12th. (Mike Ruefer photo)

“We were a lot better then our result tonight” said Kosiski, “the track still had a little slime to blow off for qualifying and that hurt us being first out. The car was good all night... had the fourth fastest lap in the feature and should of finished a few spots better then I did.”

August 16, 2020 - Kosiski Comes Home With 4th Place Run at The Bullring
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 began a three race rode trip with the Hoker Trucking LLC Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series Friday night at the Davenport Speedway - K Promotions, Kosiski raced his way into the 40 lap main event and a late race restart ended the night just shy of the checkers.

With no time trials, the luck of the draw had Andrew starting fourth row inside of the 10 lap heat race. Kosiski was able to advance two positions, but that still had him on the outside looking in for the main event. AK started outside front row of the B feature and was able to finish in the third position which was the last transfer spot to the A main.

Starting 21st on the grid Kosiski wheeled around the top side of the 1/4 mile speedway for the beginning portion of the event. With the top and bottom being pretty even it was a battle every lap to gain positions. The race was halted on lap 36 when Bill Leighton Jr spun around going into turn three. The ensuing restart would be calamity as the field raced three wide many rows deep; contact between Jeff Aikey and another car slowed Aikey coming off of turn two. Andrew had no where to go plowing into the back of the No. 77 which caused the No. 58 of Dave Eckrich to pile into the No. 53. With heavy sheet metal damage Kosiski would retire from the race resulting in a 20th place finish.

Time trials set the heat race line ups, and AK had one of his best performances of the year with the 5th fastest time overall put in at 15.375 seconds. Lining up third row inside in the first heat race, Kosiski couldn’t advance any position giving him the 13th starting position in the 40 lap A feature.

In the opening laps of the A feature Andrew hung around where he started and after losing a few positions he was finally able to make his way to the high side where he ran the cushion all the way around the 1/4 mile speedway. About the half way point of the race Kosiski and JC Wyman put together a great side by side battle for the 12th position for about a half a dozen laps; once he cleared the No. 4 Andrew went to work on last nights winner Andy Eckrich and made the pass for 11th with just seven laps to go. Kosiski would cut the deficit with tenth place runner Tad Pospisil in the closing laps but ran out of time taking the checkers in 11th position after 40 consecutive green flag laps.

Team 53 concluded the three day Hoker Trucking LLC Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series weekend Sunday night at The Bullring at Rock Island County Fairgrounds. After a strong qualifying performance, Andrew Kosiski wrapped up the evening with a 4th place finish in the 40 lap main event.

AK took advantage of his early qualifying draw laying down a lap of 14.501 seconds which was good for third quick overall out of 20 cars. Starting last in the third heat race Andrew was able to advance two positions to finish fourth which locked him into the top six invert. The first three rows of the feature were lined up by the inverted results from Saturday night placing the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Kosiski Auto Parts, Super Clean No. 53 on the inside of row two.

The drop of the green seen the outside row get the advantage shuffling Kosiski back to the fifth position on lap one. Andrew stuck to the bottom and was able to make the pass on Matt Ryan for fourth position at the halfway mark of the contest. Kosiski would gap Ryan and run down Darrell Defrance who was in third. AK would get along side of “The Ironman” in turns three and four, but Defrance was able to get the advantage in turns one and two claiming the position and getting in line on the bottom which had became the dominant groove. The two would run down second place runner Jeff Tharp but there was no contesting for position the last few laps giving Kosiski a fourth place finish at the checkers.

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.

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.

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 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.
