Regan Smith wins the Southern 500

10 05 2011

Cup boys were at Darlinton this past saturday nite and there was lots of action thats for sure! It was a wild crazy race thats for sure! There were wild crashes a first time winner then the fights! Saturday night is alright for fightin!!  In all there were 21 lead changes and 11 cautions.

On lap 231 David Ragen spun and then hit Brian Vickers and knocked the side off Vicker’s car like a can opener! As you seen in the pict there it took the window net and foam right out of that car! Yea both drivers were OK in fact Vickers got the side replace and got back out there to finish the race!

On lap 359 Jeff Burton blew the motor bringing out the caution and on the restart kyle busch got into Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer sending them both in the wall that set up a green white checker finish and Regan Smith was able to hold off Carl Edwards for his first ever win! After the racethe fight was on between Harvick and busch! busch hit Harvick’s car on pit row as Harvick was getting out and sending crew guys running as the car hit the pit wall and they both were called to the Nascar hauler! That took the spotlight away from a first time winner!

Regan Smith is an underdawg! He drives for Furniture Row Racing, a single-car team based in Denver – that’s Colorado, not Denver, N.C. The organization uses chassis from Richard Childress Racing, engines from Earnhardt Childress Racing Engines and a pit crew on loan from Stewart Haas Racing.  Last season he only had 4 top 15 finishes!

“Winning here to me means more to me than that win could have ever meant with this team, with the hard work, racing out of Colorado, the things that have gone on,” Smith said.

Cup guys will be at Dover this sunday! I might be missing that race as i might be going to the local track to see the Race of Champions Modified tour race!
