ST. JOHN’S, Pa. – Nearing the halfway point of his 2008 schedule, Oxford’s Rusty Smith nearly won back-to-back races for the first time this season settling for a second-place finish last weekend at Mountain Speedway in the asphalt modified feature.
A week earlier, Smith won the 40-lap feature at Mountain Speedway – his second win of the season on the track – moving from the eighth position to take the lead on lap 17. “I made a three-wide pass, and won pretty easily,” Smith said. “It was exciting for some time because it was bottled up. The (drivers) are getting better down there.”
