Mark Smith Takes Henson Memorial Win At I-30 Speedway In ASCS

Swooping in from Pennsylvania, Mark Smith rolled his Mach1 Chassis No. M1 into Victory 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 2 caution. 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.

Having to race through the B-Feature, Tim Crawley tore through the field from 17th to sixth. Howard Moore held on to finish seventh with Brad Bowden in Eighth. Jeffrey West, Jr. crossed ninth with Paxton Gregory completing the top ten.

The next outing for the ASCS Mid-South Region is the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires on Friday, October 2, and Saturday, October 3.
