AK’s night started off with the 8 lap heat race where the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission, Select Auto Sales, Kosiski Auto Parts, Omni Inventive Care No. 53 would start third row inside. Kosiski was patient to start the race, working his way through traffic and using a late race restart to get into the third position at the checkered flag.

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. The top five in the event was Schaller, Kosiski 53, Bill Leighton Jr., Josh Leonard, and Tad Pospisil.

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.

The night started off with the 8 lap heat race where the All Makes Collision, Certified Transmission No. 53 took the green flag from the pole position and jumped out to a commanding lead. 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.

Kosiski enters the night 5th in the Malvern Bank Series standings after the first weekend at I-80 Speedway. On Friday night, April 5th, AK drove to victory in the opening night qualifying feature of the Spring Meltdown, he would then follow that up with a 5th place finish in the Saturday night main event.

April 6, 2019 - Kosiski Wins Opening Night at I-80 Speedway; Races to Top 5 Finish in Spring Meltdown Finale
Andrew Kosiski picked up win number one on opening night of the 2019 racing season at I-80 Speedway. 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.

Kosiski once again was behind the wheel of the Karl and Tracie Getzschman owned #18 All Makes Collision sponsored Rocket Chassis. After his runner up finish in Friday’s feature, Andrew would be locked into Saturday nights main event.

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.

September 15, 2018 - Kosiski Claims 3rd Place Podium Finish at Knoxville Raceway
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.

Andrew sits in sixth in the Malvern Bank Super Late Model Series point standings. For more results from this event, please visit www.SLMRSeries.com.
