Smith Hopes To Add A Win In Darlington

No. 7 TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet

Regan Smith continues to build a championship run on the foundation of his experience, a solid team and a strong organization behind him. After notching a win and string of top-10 finishes in the first six races of the season, his sights are set on Darlington Raceway this weekend.  The Lady in Black supplied his first Sprint Cup win back in 2011 and he looks forward to another chance at victory on the historic track. 

 “I was really proud of Chase, Greg and everyone at JRM after the 9 car’s win last week. The entire company has a lot to be proud of. It’s looking like they will be a team we have to battle all the way to Homestead for the championship. From an organizational standpoint, that’s a good problem to have. “

“The JRM teams made a lot of noise from a competition perspective last week and we want to carry that momentum on to Darlington. I never get tired of making the drive down to Darlington. It truly is a special place, even more so after you win there.”

EARLY SEASON STRENGTH
As a company, JRM holds two victories through the season’s first six events. Both Regan Smith (Daytona International Speedway) and Chase Elliott (Texas Motor Speedway) have visited victory lane in 2014. Additionally, the JRM teammates are the only two Nationwide Series regulars to win this season.

EYE ON THE PRIZE
Smith, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson remain the lone three drivers to score consecutive top-10 finishes in the season’s first six events. Of note, Smith is the only NNS regular to accomplish that feat.

CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE
A pair of JRM teammates sit atop the Nationwide Series point standings this week. Smith held the top spot for the first four races, then split the lead with Trevor Bayne. But following Chase Elliott’s first win at Texas, he now has the lead. Smith is two markers behind in second.
