Garrett Smithley Had A Steady Race At The Glen

In his third race at Watkins Glen International, Garrett Smithley drove a steady pace and came home 23rd in Saturday’s Zippo 200 Xfinity Series race.

The 200 was the first of three road-course races the series is scheduled to run this month.

Smithley, driving the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller No. 0 Chevrolet, finished on the lead lap on a tough day – rain pelted the course and changed conditions dramatically – and stayed 20th in series points.

“It’s not often that we drive these cars on rain tires,” Smithley said. “Quite a different experience. But we hung in there and brought it home in one piece with a decent finish. A great job by the guys.”

Joey Logano won the race.

The series moves on to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for an Aug. 11 race.
