G.R. Smith Wraps Up 2018 Season
Set to Return to Driverís Seat on a Full-Time Basis in 2019

Cornelius, North Carolina (11/07/18 ) Ė G.R. Smith has wrapped up his 2018 racing campaign. During the course of the season Smith contested a limited schedule in his Victory Circle Auto Sales #22 M&W Transport/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

In nine starts he recorded a single victory, which came on March 17 at Southern Raceway (Milton, Florida) with the Southern All Stars (SAS) Dirt Racing Series. He also claimed four Top-10 finishes, with his most recent finish a sixth-place effort in a special event at North Carolinaís Fayetteville Motor Speedway in a ride prepared by Dustin Mitchell.

With the 2018 season now complete, G.R. has already turned his focus to the 2019 campaign, which will see him returning to the driverís seat on a full-time basis.

ďIt was definitely a year of changes within my organization,Ē Smith said. ďWe started the year with the intention of running the full World of Outlaws tour with Brian Shirley, but the chemistry just wasnít there, so we amicably agreed to part ways. I was real busy with my company for much of the year. As a result, I only got to run a few races. Now that Iíve got everything lined out with where it needs to be, Iím ready to go full bore racing again next year.

After experimenting with the car owner role, Smith is eager to return to the cockpit in 2019.

ďNext year, Iím going to be returning to the driverís seat on a full-time basis. Iíll be running various national-level events, and when not doing that Iíll focus on some of our regional races,Ē Smith commented. ďIím looking forward to refocusing as a driver. I still have a lot left in the tank, and I feel that we can contend for wins on both the regional and national level. The car owner role just isnít for me, so that chapter is definitely closed.

ďAs a final note I want to express my total gratitude for my sponsors. M&W Transport and just everyone who helps me Ė thank you! Weíve got some good friends, who support my program, but Iím hoping with me back in the driverís seat fulltime next year that we can add some more sponsors to our program. Hopefully we are all taking a lot of victory lane photos together next year.Ē
