LANCASTER – For nearly half of last Saturday’s 75-lap Race of Champions (ROC) Series event at Dunn Tire Raceway Park, Oxford’s Rusty Smith was languishing in the middle of the pack among a stacked field of quality drivers – and even better racing teams.
“We saved our tires and kind of hung out the first 25 laps,” said the Blueox-sponsored Smith
A yellow flag soon followed, and Smith re-started on the outside in 20th place. “Things kept clicking on the outside, and every time a caution came out, we shuffled back to the outside,” he said. “We just kept picking them off one by one.”
