Smith Goes For Round Two At IMS Chevrolet Camaro

Along with the Nationwide Series, JRM’s two-car team makes its second trip to the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. The series made its debut at the historic 2.5-mile facility last year. Both of Regan Smith’s two wins this year (Talladega Superspeedway and Michigan International Speedway) have come at tracks in length of two miles or more.
“Indianapolis is one of three tracks that still gives me goose bumps every time I go through the tunnel. There is something about that place. When you get on the racetrack and take that first trip down the front straightaway with the grandstands on both sides, it’s special. “I feel great about going there even though this is the first time I’ve been there in a Nationwide car. Greg (Ives) has a lot of experience there and knows that track well. I have lot of confidence in how fast our racecar is going to be. We definitely have a great opportunity to win there.”

Smith will race chassis No. 800 at Indianapolis. This chassis went to victory lane in its only start this season at Michigan.

Regan Smith will join a number of other Nationwide Series drivers in an autograph session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 27, from 10 to 11 a.m. local time. The session will be located in the infield pavilion. Wristbands for the session will be distributed beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning in the pagoda plaza.
