LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Swooping in from Pennsylvania, Mark Smith rolled his Mach1 Chassis No. M1 into vctory lane at the Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway with the ASCS Mid-South Region.

Chasing Howard Moore early, Smith took over the top spot following a lap-two caution flag. Finding traffic quickly, Moore’s night nearly came and end after making contact with a slower car.

Holding off the field to the drop of the checkered flag, Smith was chased to the finish by fellow Mach1 racer, Dale Howard. Jeremy Middleton made it to third after starting eighth with Ernie Ainsworth advancing from 11th to fourth. Cody Gardner completed the top five.

The finish:
