Notes & Quotes:

  • Zane Smith started second for Saturday night’s event and secured his first career stage win after edging out teammate Brett Moffitt for the Stage One victory. Smith reported the front end was tight in the first run and pitted for fuel and a trackbar adjustment. Crew chief Kevin “Bono” Manion called to cut the pit stop at just two tires in an effort to get Smith back out front with weather on the horizon. Smith started the second stage in the fifth position and would ultimately finish the race seventh after the race was called at the end of Stage Two due to weather.
  • Smith led twice for a total of 11 laps.
  • Smith is currently sixth in points, 72 points behind the leader.

“That’s a tough one to swallow. We made a mistake on taking two tires on that last pit stop because it made us way too tight at the end of Stage Two. Luckily we’re going home with a stage win and a good points day.”
