TaxSlayer On Board With Smith

JR Motorsports cornerstone partner,, moves to Regan Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.  He will be joined by five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion and last week’s Daytona 500 winner, Jimmie Johnson, who takes the reins of the No. 5 Great Clips Chevrolet Camaro. After a fourth-place finish with Dale Earnhardt Jr. last week at Daytona, Smith carries the colors in his third start for JRM and fifth NNS start at PIR.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun going to Phoenix with our Chevy. I think these next four or five weeks are important weeks for our season, and for working towards our championship goals. I feel 100 percent confident with how fast our race cars are going to be in Phoenix. We had a real fast car in Daytona. I know the things we learned in testing, and what we are working on, and I’m excited about them.  The way I look at it, Phoenix is kind of the start to the season. Daytona is its own animal, so when you get to Phoenix you start to see who the contenders are. “It’s awesome to have Jimmie as a teammate this weekend. He’s always there to help out, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do on the track.”
