CONCORD, NC (June 28, 2012) Coming back from a difficult start to the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series, at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Rev Racing’s Dylan Smith experienced his first top-10 finish of the season in Tuesday night’s NOS Energy Legend Car Semi-Pro feature.
Starting 20th in what was supposed to be a 25-lap feature race, Smith quickly jumped into the 14th position after avoiding a multi car crash on lap two. After the restart, Smith continued to push the legendary No. 34, into the top-10 within three laps.
After the second caution flag of the night flew on lap seven, Smith, who felt like he had one of the strongest cars in the 30 car field, was holding steady in eighth. After falling back two positions on the restart, Smith avoided a second multi car crash in turn four.
Due to excessive and extended caution periods, track officials ended this race after the final restart on lap 10, where Smith was able to push his way back to ninth when the checkered flag was waved.
Although happy with this top-10 finish, Smith said that he was hoping that this race would go its full distance.
“It seems like there was a caution every other lap and I was dodging a lot of wrecks, but we had a top-5 car and I would have liked to have had the opportunity to prove it,” said Smith. “Fortunately, my Rev Racing team has given me a strong car that not only did well tonight, but will be ready for next week’s 3rd Annual Legends Big Money 100.”
Smith will feature his legendary Max Siegel, Inc.,Toyota and Langley Speedway No. 34 in next Tuesday’s Big Money Legend Car Semi-Pro feature, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
