    In 2017, Josh Richards went to Victory Lane at Portsmouth Raceway Park, Mansfield Motor Speedway, and Sharon Speedway.

I'm definitely looking forward to this next swing. I really enjoy the racing style in the northern region."

    The stars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will battle some of the toughest local and regional standouts in Ohio. "The competition will certainly be tough, but I feel like we've hit on some things lately to make the car better. I'm excited to get back racing," Richards added.
