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.

September 15, 2019 - Kosiski Finishes Runner Up at Tiny Lund Memorial
As Andrew Kosiski was traveling back from the Knoxville Raceway Sunday morning a phone call with his friend and sponsor Karl Getzschman led to an impromptu visit to the Shelby County Speedway for the final day of the Tiny Lund Memorial. The race that was originally scheduled for Saturday night, was rescheduled for Sunday afternoon after rain storms went through the area. (Chris Eiel photo)

The afternoon would start off with an eight lap heat race where Andrew would drive the All Makes Collision Center No. 18 from the fifth starting position to finish second. With 18 cars entered into the event, 2/3 of the field would redraw for feature starting spots where Andrew got the 10th starting position for the 25 lap main event.

With the warm weather and sunshine, the track would be a narrow one with the preferred groove on the bottom. AK would press the issue early on moving from his 10th starting spot to 6th on lap one, on lap two he would take over 5th and on lap seven he made the pass for 4th. The caution waved on lap 8, and on the restart Andrew went from 4th to the runner up position behind his cousin Kale Kosiski. With the two in clean air, Kale began to pull away, the No. 35 stretched out his lead as he was laying down laps a half second faster then the rest of the field. The race went green the rest of the way with Kale Kosiski taking the victory, Andrew took home second with Jacob Brown finishing third.

After the race Andrew explained that they just didn’t have the car geared right, but wanted to thank Karl and Tracie for letting him drive their car and for the continued support from All Makes Collision on his No. 53 Late Model.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 went into the Knoxville Raceway Saturday night for the 2nd Annual Midwest Mobile Tech 22. The invite only Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series event was the supporting act to the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series during the final night of the Knoxville Late Model Nationals. (Todd Boyd photo)

Kosiski started the night by qualifying 17th overall with a time of 20.173 seconds, lining him up on the pole of heat race number two. Andrew would fall back on the opening lap to the third position, but was able to recover to finish second in the 8 lap event.

Starting 11th on the grid, AK would use the bottom side early on to make his way into the top ten of the main event. As the race went on though and track conditions changed Kosiski began to lose the front end coming off the corners. In the closing laps Andrew fell back to the 12th position, but on the final corner he would use a big run on the cushion to take the 11th spot from Jason Hahne at the line.

September 8, 2019 - Preliminary Success Highlights Nebraska Cup For Kosiski
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 went into Sunday night’s Nebraska Cup at Eagle Raceway looking to turn their luck around on the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series tour; but a textbook perfect night turned sour at the start of the 25 lap main event. (Todd Boyd photo)

The night started off with group qualifying as Andrew took quick time in Group A, laying down a lap of 14.250 seconds with an average speed of 84.21 miles per hour around the third mile bull ring. Starting third row outside of the first late model heat race sponsored by Speedway Motors, AK drove the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission, Select Auto Sales, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care No. 53 through traffic all the way to the front to take the victory in the eight lap event.

Starting second row outside in the 25 lap A feature, the field would move slowly through turn three with Kyle Berck on the pole and Jason O’Brien on the outside front row. As the leaders got to turn four to start the race it was O’Brien getting the advantage with Andrew next to Berck entering turn one. Kosiski sailed it off into the corner hitting a rut that redirected the car towards the outside wall. As the yellow flag came out for the leaders not being side by side at the start, Andrew pounded the turn two wall with the right side of his MB Custom chassis.

“I didn’t think they were going to let that start go” said Kosiski, “but knowing how crucial track position was going to be I drove it in deep [into turn one] in case they did. I hit that rut and both front tires came off the ground and I had no chance of saving it.”

The field would realign to restart the race, but Kosiski knew he was in trouble under yellow.

“The car picked up a vibration immediately after hitting the wall and I could hear something making a noise in the right rear. I thought the quarter panel was on the tire and I was just going to run it until it went flat.”

As the race went back to green AK maintained the fourth position after attempting a slight challenge to Brian Kosiski for the third position early on. Andrew held onto the position for the first 15 laps of the race until Corey Zeitner made the pass as Kosiski began to struggle coming off of turn four. Tad Pospisil then would make the pass for fifth on the bottom a few laps later, but Andrew took the position back after the two started racing lap traffic. With just a few laps remaining both Pospisil and Jake Neal would get by along with Josh Leonard on the final lap to drop the No. 53 to an 8th place finish at the checkers.

September 5, 2019 - Kosiski Set For Lone Trip To Eagle
Team 53 will be in action just one time this weekend as they set sail for the Eagle Raceway for their first and only visit to the high banks in 2019. This Sunday, September 8th, the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series takes to the track for round 19 of the “Race For The Safe” tour; Kosiski enters the race eighth in series points.

Historically Kosiski has not found much success at the 1/3 mile Eagle Raceway which is located just 40 minutes southwest of Omaha, but in 2019 AK and his All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission No. 53 has done well at the short tracks on the Malvern Bank tour. In five starts, Andrew has picked up two top fives and four top tens, including a runner up finish at the U.S. 30 Raceway in Columbus on the 4th of July.

LAST WEEKEND OUT: Andrew picked up a pair of top ten finishes last weekend as he finished 8th at the Shelby County Speedway Saturday and 5th at the I-80 Speedway Sunday. Kosiski brought home a third place finish in both the I-80 Speedway track points standings and the NASCAR Nebraska State Championship standings.

September 1, 2019 - Kosiski Finishes 8th In Wild Race at Shelby County, Picks Up Top 5 in NASCAR Season Finale
Andrew Kosiski brought home a top ten finish Saturday night at the Shelby County Speedway as the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series took to the half mile track for the second and final time in 2019. This would be the 18th series event of the season as “The Race For The Safe” had only three nights remaining entering the night.

AK struggled early in the night, qualifying 12th in his group and finishing third in his heat after starting from the pole. Making adjustments for the last chance qualifier Andrew was able to advance from his fourth starting position to finish second, earning the 16th starting spot for the 25 lap A main.

The A feature could only be described as wild and crazy, and as the caution flag flew numerous times Kosiski found himself racing for the 10th-12th positions early on. Surviving the wrecks and contact with other cars throughout the race, Andrew was able to come across the finish line in 8th as the checkered flag flew.

Andrew Kosiski wrapped up the 2019 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season Sunday night at the I-80 Speedway. Kosiski went into the race as a long shot to win the track championship, but a top five finish wasn’t enough to claim the title.

The format for Championship Sunday put the top eight cars in the season standings in a dash to determine the first four rows of the 25 lap main event. Andrew would start third row outside and he struggled in the opening laps falling to the eighth position; at the half way point Kosiski pulled his No. 53 pit side with handling issues and locked in the eighth starting spot in the A feature.

After an early caution flag at the start of the event, the race went caution free the rest of the way. In the opening circuits Andrew had to use the top side to work through traffic and after securing the fifth position from Jacob Hobscheidt he was able to drop to the low groove which was a faster lane for his MB Custom Chassis. Kosiski began to slowly reel in fourth place runner Josh Krug, but the deficit was just too much to overcome as Andrew came home with a fifth place finish.

August 23, 2019 - Kosiski Charges To 11th Place Finish in Yankee Dirt Track Classic Finale
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 traveled to the 300 Raceway - Farley, Iowa for the 42nd Annual Yankee Dirt Track Classic. Andrew would win his 10 lap heat race, but could not transfer out of the last chance qualifier to make the 25 lap preliminary feature.

Qualifying time trials were key to the night as Andrew laid down a time of 17.558 seconds, which was only good enough for 15th fastest in Group A. This result would start Kosiski front row outside of the ten lap heat race. At the drop of the green pole sitter Darrell DeFrance grabbed the early advantage in turns one and two, but AK would get the advantage in turns three and four and grab the lead at the flag stand. The yellow flag would come out and Andrew would be credited with the lead. After the restart it was smooth sailing and Kosiski led every lap to victory.

With the combination of qualifying and heat race points Andrew would start outside of row two in the 14 lap B main. With the track rubbered on the bottom Andrew fell to fifth on lap one and settled in line. The race would stay single file the rest of the way with Kosiski finishing 6th after getting out of the rubber to try and pass a lapped car. Andrew received a provisional starting spot for the 25 lap main. With the track being rubbered, Andrew started 26th and finished 24th on the one groove track.

eam 53 would wrap up the 42nd Annual Yankee Dirt Track Classic at 300 Raceway Friday night with an 11th place finish and the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars in the 50 lap main event.

Friday nights qualifying lineups were set by Thursday night’s preliminary race results, so Andrew started second row outside in his heat race and would finish fourth in that 10 lap event. That result sent AK to the last chance qualifier where he started and finished 3rd; earning the last transfer spot for the A main.

Kosiski rolled off the 27 car starting field from the 24th starting spot and immediately went to work using the middle and top grooves of the speedway. The race would be caution plagued during the first half of the 50 laps, but Kosiski’s night almost came to an end on lap 20 after the right front hood pin fell out of the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission No. 53. The hood folded up causing Andrew to partially lose vision, but luckily the caution would fly one lap later for Ryan Griffith who stopped in turn four. The crew was able to make repairs under the yellow sending Kosiski back out to restart in the 22nd spot. The race entered a long green flag run after the lap 22 restart and from there on Andrew would be one of a few cars to be able to use the top groove in turns three and four, as the bottom lane was the choice of the field in turns one and two. Working to pass cars in the last half of the race, AK started to pick off cars the last handful of laps as he made a second groove work in turns one and two. Kosiski came across the finish line in the 11th spot at the checkered flags, passing 13 cars in the 50 laps.

August 16, 2019 - Kosiski Finishes 3rd, Closes Points Gap at I-80
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made their way to the I-80 Speedway Friday night for night number nine of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season. In front of a standing room only crowd, Kosiski grabbed a podium third place finish and closed the points margin going into the final race of 2019.

Heat race action seen the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission No. 53 start in the fourth starting spot to kick off the eight lap heat race. After an early battle with Ben Schaller, Andrew was able to pull away and finish a comfortable third position qualifying him to start on the outside of the second row for the 25 lap A main.

At the drop of the green in the feature event AK quickly jumped to the high side of the speedway and moved himself into the second position by lap two. Kosiski then set sail for race leader Jake Neal, but as the two used the same groove they would match lap times lap after lap until Neal entered lap traffic on circuit number ten. At that point Andrew was able to cut Neal’s 1.3 second lead in half, but couldn’t narrow the advantage any closer. The first yellow of the race came out on lap 16 which bunched the field up, but Kosiski would not have a good restart slipping to the fourth position in turns one and two. Andrew would contest the No. 14 of Kyle Berck for the third position back multiple times but could not get an advantage until lap 23 when Berck’s power plant went up in flames entering turn three. This yellow flag gave Andrew one last chance to improve his position but he could not get the momentum on the bottom of the speedway to complete a pass. Neal drove to victory in the green-white-checkered finish followed by Josh Leonard, Kosiski finished third just ahead of Bill Leighton Jr. who came home fourth.

With just one night remaining in the 2019 I-80 Speedway season, Kosiski sits third trailing Leighton by 8 points, and Leonard by 7.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 were in action Friday night at the I-80 Speedway for rounds seven and eight of the 2019 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season. With eleven cars on hand, the field would race twin 16 lap mains around the 4/10th of a mile speedway.

Race number one seen Kosiski start third row outside and use the high line to jump into the fourth position on lap number one. From there on it was full throttle around the speedway for 15 more laps and Andrew would follow Josh Krug, Ben Schaller and Bill Leighton Jr. across the line to finish fourth just 2.2 seconds behind Krug.

Race number two was much the same, starting third row inside Kosiski did not get the advantage at the start falling to the sixth position. Andrew grabbed the fifth position from Jason Wallace about halfway through the race when Wallace broke a rearend coming off of turn two. AK chased down Brian Kosiski in the last few laps of the caution free race but passing opportunities were scarce and Andrew came home fifth.

Kosiski and Team 53 took to the big half mile of the Adams County Speedway Saturday night for the final time in 2019. This was the third and final stop at ACS this season for the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series as the $3,000 to win Ray Houck Memorial feature win was on the line.

Qualifying time trials opened the event and Andrew posted the 10th best time of 21.575 seconds around the paper clip speedway. This lined the All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission No. 53 up in the third position for heat race number one. Kosiski would fall one position in the eight lap race to finish 4th and between qualifying points and heat race points he earned the 10th starting position in the 25 lap A main.

At the drop of the green AK used the top groove in turns one and two to jump into the 8th position. Kosiski then spent the opening laps battling with Kyle Berck and Bill Leighton Jr. for the 8th, 9th and 10th place spots until the caution flew on lap ten. Restarting the race in tenth, Andrew would fall to the 11th position on lap 12 when fellow MB Customs driver Charlie McKenna drove by after starting in the 22nd position; but on lap 13 JC Wyman would go into the spin cycle after running in the top five bringing the yellow flag. After that Kosiski raced for the tenth spot until a lap 21 caution came out for Josh Most, under the yellow Kosiski pulled pit side with a broken shock mount. The No. 53 did not return to the race and Andrew was credited with a 21st place finish.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 headed to the Hawkeye State Friday night for race number 15 of the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. This would be the second trip of the year to the Crawford County Speedway for Kosiski, and the result would be exactly the same as the first trip.

Andrew drew the outside front row starting spot for heat race number three and at the green flag AK jumped to an early lead. Kosiski maintained about a four car length advantage over Corey Zeitner for the first six circuits until coming off of turn four the engine of the No. 53 went up in smoke. Andrew was forced pit side and retired from the rest of the event.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 looked to get back on track Saturday night at the Junction Motor Speedway as the MBSLMR took to the 3/8th of a mile speedway for the second time this season. Kosiski would have a strong performance going on in the A main event until things went south with five laps remaining. (Troy Powers photo)

The night started with qualifying time trials where Andrew put down a lap of 16.351 seconds which was good for second fastest overall. Kosiski was just .059 seconds off of the fast time set by Kyle Berck. With the invert from qualifying AK was slated to start third row outside of the second heat race.

Between qualifying and heat race points, Andrew started the 25 lap main event on the pole, but it was Robbie Andersen who grabbed the lead on lap one. The All Makes Collision Center, Certified Transmission No. 53 went to the point on lap two and AK kept the top spot until a lap 11 restart when Kyle Berck got by entering turns one and two; Andrew would also give up the second position on the same lap as the No. 1 of Josh Leonard got by in turns three and four. Kosiski fell to the fourth position on lap fourteen as Tad Pospisil completed the pass, but Pospisil would have a mechanical failure on lap 19 and as his car began to slow coming off of turn two Andrew would get into the rear of the No. 04 causing heavy damage to the nose of the No. 53. Kosiski restarted the race in the third position with six laps remaining and at the drop of the green Andrew would battle side by side with the No. 98 of Ben Schaller. The two would race side by side down the back straightaway and Kosiski took the advantage on the low side in turns three and four.

At the drop of the green pole sitter Blair Nothdurft gained a slight advantage over Andrew going into turn one. As Nothdurft aimed his car to go in high, Kosiski tried a cross over move to get underneath the No.76 and doing so lost the back end and spun out in front of the field. Fortunately everyone was able to get by without much damage. After the restart Andrew worked through traffic as best as he could going from 24th to finish 17th.

After the initial green flag the field jumped in line on the cushion and Kosiski was able to finish fourth.

Kosiski was able to make a pass late in the event as Robbie Andersen slipped up entering turn one with four laps to go. Andrew went on to finish 6th in the caution free race.

At the drop of the green pole sitter Curt Schroeder jumped out to the early lead in his No. 15C. Third place starting driver Corey Zeitner would also make the pass leaving Andrew in third place after lap two. AK worked the bottom groove on lap six passing Schroeder for the runner up spot, setting his sight for Zeitner’s No. 19. As the leader started working their way through lap traffic, Kosiski demolished Zeitner’s ten car length lead to less then a car length on lap 15.

At the drop of the green for the A main there was some jockeying for position but once everything got settled Andrew was still in the ninth position. The race stayed green until lap 16 when Matt Snoberger spun over the turn two banking. The ensuing restart got a little too exciting as 8th place running J.C. Wyman spun around right in front of Kosiski in turn four; Andrew got on the binders and took a hard right to stay off of the No. 4 car, then had to take a hard left to keep out of the outside wall. AK took no damage and restarted the race in 8th where he and Bill Leighton Jr raced hard into turn one; both drivers slid up the hill battling for 7th allowing Nick Deal to race by underneath. Kosiski was able to get by Leighton and that’s where he would run the final 9 laps to come home with an 8th place finish.

Kosiski would trail race leader Josh Krug as both drivers used the cushion to get around the 4/10th of a mile speedway; though just after the halfway point as the two race leaders entered lap traffic AK was able to use the bottom groove to pass the No. 4K of Krug. Andrew then set sail from there building a nearly four second lead by the end of the caution free 25 lap main event. Krug finished second followed by Josh Leonard, Kosiski 52, and Bill Leighton Jr.

In victory lane Andrew thanked all of his sponsors for their support and explained how being able to roll the bottom in lap traffic when the top groove was so dominant was the key to victory.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 continued on the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series tour Friday night as they visited I-80 Speedway for the annual Dirt Classic. The Malvern Bank Series was just recently added to the Dirt Classic race card and Kosiski was looking to take advantage of the start at his home track.

AK kicked off the night with time trials where he put down a lap of 18.445 seconds which was good for second overall in Group A qualifying.

Kosiski would line up third row outside for the eight lap heat race, where he worked through traffic to take the lead with two laps to go. Andrew pulled away in the final few laps and won in dominant fashion.

Starting the 40 lap, $4,000 to win main event from the pole position, AK slipped back to the third position after lap one. A lap three caution slowed the field and on the restart the No. 53 went to battle with the No. 19 of Corey Zeitner. Andrew grabbed the advantage on lap seven from Zeitner and set sail on the high groove. By the midpoint of the race Kosiski started to feel pressure from Tad Pospisil, but working lapped traffic he was able to pull away from the No. 04. Disaster struck on lap 28 as a lapped car hit the wall in front of Andrew and then turned down the track causing heavy contact to the right side of the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission sponsored machine. This would end the night as Kosiski was forced pit side with the damage.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 were looking to bounce back after getting caught up in an accident Friday night at I-80 Speedway; and they did exactly that. Saturday night they took on the Off Road Speedway for a $2,000 to win Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series event. The Norfolk bull ring has been traditionally a challenge for the Omaha native, but this time around he earned a 3rd place finish.

The qualifying effort placed Andrew third row inside in heat race number four. AK went to battle early on in the eight lap heat racing side by side with both Kyle Berck and Josh Leonard. Kosiski took the advantage on lap four and then set his sights on third place runner Jim Johnson. Making a last lap pass Andrew finished third, qualifying himself for the 25 lap A main.

Rolling off seventh, Andrew had the drive early on in the feature. Pulling a slide job coming off two, AK broke into the top five on lap four; then on lap nine he took over fourth place at the start-finish line just before the yellow flag was displayed. After the restart Kosiski had to take evasive maneuvers as third place runner Jason O’Brien went into the spin cycle; barely making it by Andrew set himself to restart the race now in the third position and at the green flag he challenged the No. 55D of Nick Deal for the runner up spot. Kosiski fell back in line and rode until a lap 14 caution made things exciting. The top three runners would be under a blanket on lap 16 when race leader Tad Pospisil jumped the cushion entering turn one, this allowed Deal to get to his door, but it was AK on the bottom taking the lead coming off of turn two. Leaving enough room on the outside , Deal sailed his car onto the cushion in turns three and four to take over the top spot. Andrew ran runner up until the race slowed on lap 22, then it was time for one last chance at the lead. Kosiski could not challenge Deal, but it was Ben Schaller who made a last lap, last corner pass on the No. 53 to take second, leaving Andrew to finish third. (Cody Papke photo)

With the top three heat race finish, Andrew made the qualification invert to start him second row outside of the 25 lap main event. By lap two Kosiski had gotten to the third position and on lap three he passed for second. At this point race leader Ben Schaller gapped a big enough advantage there was no catching the fellow Mars Race Cars chassis as the race went caution free.

May 4, 2019 - Kosiski Rebounds For Top 10 at Adams County
Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 made the weeknight trip Thursday night to the Stuart Speedway for a rare start with the Lucas Oil MLRA. This would be Kosiski’s first career start at the 1/4 mile bull ring in west central Iowa.

AK drew front row outside of his heat race qualifier. At the drop of the green Kosiski raced door to door with current MLRA points leader Will Vaught with the No. 53 leading lap one. The two would race side by side on lap two until Vaught made the pass in the middle of turns three and four. This would bring third place runner Chris Simpson into play, Andrew and Simpson would race for a few laps for the position with Chris getting the edge. At the checkered flag it was Vaught, Simpson and Kosiski the top three.

The 40 lap main event would have a slow start with three yellow flags in the first eight laps. After starting 7th, Kosiski made it as high as 6th until falling to 9th at the lap eight yellow. After the restart contact between Billy Moyer and Jesse Stovall sent the No. 00 of Stovall into the spin cycle entering turn three, Andrew had no place to go smashing into the side of Stovall. With damage to the right front of the car, Kosiski was forced to retire his All Makes Collision Certified Transmission MB Customs No. 53 for the evening.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 traveled to the Crawford County Speedway Friday evening for round four of the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. Kosiski entered the night tied for third in series points coming off of three top ten finishes to start the year.

The eight lap heat race qualifier started the evening off with AK starting second row inside. At the drop of the green Andrew fell back to the fourth position as outside second row starter Jason Rauen grabbed the cushion and went to battle for the lead. Kosiski would eventually get past pole sitter Curt Schroeder for the third position and take the checkered flag there earning the 12th starting position for the night’s feature.

The 25 lap A main was short lived as just a couple laps in a light smoke would start to trail the No. 53 machine and on lap five the power plant would experience a failure resulting in a 21st place finish.

Saturday night Team 53 made the trip to the Adams County Speedway - Corning IA for the fifth round of action in the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. Andrew and the crew would put many hours of work in over night getting a new power plant under the hood of the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care MB Customs Chassis No. 53 so they could compete in the event.

Time trial action saw AK post a time of 21.679 seconds, good enough for 9th fastest. Starting outside the front row of his heat race, Kosiski jumped out to an early lead. Just after the half way point Andrew would slip up entering turn one allowing the No. 24 of Bill Leighton Jr. to race by. Kosiski went on to finish second behind Leighton in the 8 lap race.

Starting the feature from the fourth row outside, AK battled early on with Cousin Brian Kosiski for the 7th position until both Kosiski’s entered the spin cycle entering turn three on lap three. The caution would come out sending them both to the back. Andrew worked his way through traffic the rest of the 25 lap race to finish in the 9th position.

Andrew stretched the lead to over a half straightaway by lap two, and after leading all the circuits he picked up the heat race victory, his second of the season.

Kosiski started the 25 main event fourth row inside and in the first couple laps Andrew used the bottom groove to get by both Brian Kosiski and Josh Krug. AK then set his sights on Bill Leighton Jr., but within the first few laps the low side became the dominant place to be and Andrew would have to follow the tire tracks of Leighton. In the closing laps the top five were all on the same straightaway but no one could make a move. Josh Leonard picked up the win, followed by Jason O'Brien, Corey Zeitner, Leighton, and Kosiski 53.

Kosiski would start third in heat race number two and from the drop of the green he would go to battle with the No. 52 of Brian Kosiski. The two Kosiski’s split the No. 15C of Curt Schroeder for the second position a few laps in, but it would be Brian that took the advantage as Andrew finished third in the 8 lap race.

The third place heat finish would line the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care No. 53 on the pole of the first last chance qualifier. Andrew would lead the entire way and pick up the victory to secure a 15th place starting position in the 25 lap A main.

With track position being premium on the 1/4 bull ring, traffic was tough to negotiate at the start of the main event. AK worked his way up to the 12th position by the lap 9 yellow, and then after the restart he would make his way forward some more. After using the bottom lane of the speedway, Kosiski raced door to door with Joel Callahan for 8th in the closing laps but couldn’t complete the pass to come home with a 9th place finish.

Andrew Kosiski and Team 53 will travel to the Hawkeye State on Friday, April 19th, to the Marshalltown Speedway for the third race of the 2019 Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series season. This will be Andrew’s first career race at the unique 1/4 mike speedway that is known for slide jobs and 3-4 wide racing.

This was Kosiski’s second career Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series win, and with the victory Andrew will start outside front row of Saturday’s $4,000 to win Spring Meltdown main event. (Todd Boyd photo)

The night would start with group qualifying where Andrew would time in seventh fastest in Group B with a lap time of 18.538 seconds. That started the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care Mars Race Cars No. 53 inside of row two in the heat race where he would pick up the win.

The 18 lap feature event would see Kosiski start from the outside front row and lead every lap to victory despite having to endure two green-white-checkered restarts. Andrew used the low groove most of the event as his MB Customs chassis showed great speed the entire race.

In victory lane Kosiski thanked all those that support him and Team 53. What it takes to put fast cars on the race track is a total team effort.

A correction to what was previously reported, Friday night’s win didn’t lock in a front row starting spot, the win would put Andrew starting third row outside as the top three of each qualifying feature were inverted.

Track position proved to be key in the 25 lap main event as the race went caution free. Kosiski would get in line on the super fast racing surface and run 6th for most of the race as the 2nd-6th place runners would all be on the same half straightaway early on. AK finally made the bottom groove work to get around the No. 19 of Corey Zeitner in the closing laps. Taking the checkers in was Nick Deal picking up the win, followed by Josh Leonard, Brian Kosiski, Bill Leighton Jr., and Andrew Kosiski.

In 2019 Andrew Kosiski will pilot his family owned #53 MB Custom chassis sponsored by All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto, Kosiski Auto Parts, and OMNI Inventive Care.

Andrew Kosiski returned to I-80 Speedway Friday night for the final weekend of the 2018 racing season as the annual Cornhusker Classic presented by Speedway Motors got under way.

Driving the Karl and Tracie Getzschman owned, All Makes Collision Center sponsored No. 18 Rocket Chassis for the first time this season; Kosiski rolled off the grid in the fourth row of the eight lap heat race. By the third circuit Andrew moved his way into the second position behind Tad Pospisil, but there was no running him down as the race went caution free.

The 18 lap Bragging Rights Late Model Series feature seen Kosiski take the green flag from the third starting position. Andrew would hold his position for the first half of the race as Pospisil and the No. 77 of Cory Dumpert checked out from the field. Just after halfway, AK started to chop the over two second deficit of Dumpert’s down lap by lap. With just two laps remaining Kosiski powered by Dumpert to take over the runner up spot. At the checkers it was Pospisil, Kosiski, and Dumpert as the top three podium finishers.

Andrew Kosiski would finish off the 2018 season Saturday night at I-80 Speedway as the final night of the Speedway Motors Cornhusker Classic took stage at the 4/10th of a mile speedway.

From the drop of the green in the 18 lap main, Kosiski was moving forward. Taking over the second position on lap four, Andrew would use the bottom lane to challenge race leader Jake Bridge for the top spot. Running side by side AK took control of the race on lap six, to only give the lead back to Bridge on lap seven. The first of two cautions came out on lap eight as race leader Bridge slowed going into turn one, handing the lead back to Kosiski’s No. 18. On the restart it was second place Tad Pospisil getting the run on the high side off of turn two to take the lead. That would be the race winning pass as Andrew could never challenge Pospisil again the rest of the race. Top five finishers for the night were Pospisil, Kosiski, Andrew Tilley, Rece Vaught, and Zach Zentner.

Andrew Kosiski made his first career start at the historic Knoxville Raceway Saturday evening as the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Racing (SLMR) Series joined the final night of the 15th Annual Knoxville Late Model Nationals. The Midwest Mobile Tech 22 was an invite only non points race for the Malvern Bank Series with a full slate of time trials, heats, and the main event on the race card.

Taking the track for time trials, Kosiski posted the third overall fastest lap with a time of 19.120 seconds, averaging 94.142mph around the half mile speedway. With the inverted qualifying format, Andrew rolled off from the fifth starting position in the eight lap heat race. On lap one Kosiski would immediately challenge Corey Zeitner for the third position, but coming off of turn four to complete the circuit the Certified Transmission No. 53 lost traction slipping Kosiski back to the sixth position. Andrew held position the rest of the way to finish sixth.

With the special format of combining time trial points and heat race points, Kosiski started the 22 lap feature from the inside fourth row, and at the drop of the green flag his MB Custom chassis went forward. By lap three Andrew took over the fourth position using the bottom groove. Taking advantage of a lap eight caution flag, AK once again used the bottom lane to get around Ryan Griffith and Kyle Berck on the restart to take over the 2nd position. On lap 11 Kosiski surrendered the runner up spot back to Berck but kept the interval close until the two entered lap traffic with just a handful of laps remaining. At the checkers it was Tad Pospisil edging out Berck in a photo finish for the victory, Andrew finished third followed by Chad Holladay and Brian Kosiski. (Todd Boyd photo)

Kosiski took to the track in the second qualifying group of the night posting a lap of 14.553 seconds which was good enough for second place overall. His time was just 0.015 seconds off of the quick time set by Kyle Berck. With the inverted qualifying system, Andrew rolled off the the grid in the fifth position of his heat race. With track conditions making it hard to pass, Kosiski’s No. 53 would run fifth until a caution flew with just a few laps remaining. Andrew then took advantage of the restart maneuvering his way through traffic to finish third.

Starting tenth in the 25 lap A feature, Kosiski fought traffic early on the 1/3 mile high-banked oval. Racing in a gaggle of cars for the seventh position, Andrew was forced high as the field raced three and four wide, resulting in him falling all the way back to the 13th position. Kosiski used a mid race caution to pick two spots back up, but that was it as he then rode the rest of the race to finish 11th.
