Smith Has High Hopes For Richmond

No. 7 Breyers Chevrolet

Richmond International Raceway has been a good place for Regan Smith to race the past two seasons. Smith has finishes of sixth, eighth, third and fifth in JRM Chevrolets the past four races.

“Richmond has been a good place for me the past two seasons. We need that right now, after Bristol. We had just made up two spots on pit road and then caught a speeding penalty, and we were coming back through the field when we had a mechanical failure. It’s tough, point-wise, and we’re going to have to be spot-on the rest of the way to make it up. That starts this weekend.”

The Richmond event marks the first time this season that Smith will carry Breyers colors in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Smith will also race the iconic ice-cream brand’s colors at Dover later this spring.

The average finish for the three JRM Chevrolets at Richmond over the past two events is a stellar 3.6. That includes four top-three finishes (including a victory in this race last season) and six top-10 efforts with drivers Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick and Smith.

Tune in Wednesday, April 22 to see Smith on NASCAR RaceHub on Fox Sports 1. The show is live from 6-7 p.m. ET, and Smith will talk about a variety of subjects, including the season so far, fatherhood and news that matters to NXS fans around the country.

JR Motorsports and Dale’s Pale Ale have agreed to a multifaceted partnership that will see the brand on Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet in the NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Oct. 9. The first craft beer to be featured in a can, Dale’s Pale Ale was also named the presenting sponsor of Smith’s JR Motorsports Upfront podcast on Dirty Mo Radio. Dale’s Pale Ale is the flagship brand of the Oskar Blues Brewery based in Brevard, N.C. and Longmont, Colo. The Oskar Blues Brewery offers an extensive line of craft and specialty beers in addition to Dale’s Pale Ale.
