OXFORD – A professional driver for more than half of his life, Oxford’s Rusty Smith continues to improve.
Smith captured his second straight track championship at Spencer Speedway this past season, a title that also carried the weight of the NASCAR banner. As a NASCAR-affiliated track, Spencer Speedway’s champions earned a trip to the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards and the NASCAR Night of Champions Touring Series Awards Dec. 13-14 at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina.
“It was a pretty elaborate thing,” Smith said of the evening. “It was broadcasted on the Internet...it was pretty cool.”
