Smith Looking For Sweet Success At New Hampshire

No. 7 Anderson’s Maple Syrup Chevrolet

Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup returns to the No. 7 Chevrolet this weekend, and the company is hoping that Smith steps a few spots up the ladder from Charlotte in May, the first outing in Anderson’s colors. Smith finished fourth at CMS. Maple syrup is pretty big in New Hampshire, too!
 
“New Hampshire is a flat track, and we’ve been running a lot of banked tracks lately. NHMS can be tricky in terms of setting your car up properly, and flat tracks can be more challenging than others because you don’t have the banking to help the car turn. It’s all mechanical grip turning the car there. We were top 10 there last year, and we need to do better than that if we’re going to knock down some of the point deficit we face right now. We’re pretty good on these one-mile tracks, and it’s looking like we are going to need every point we can get the rest of the way.”

REGAN AT NASHUA XFINITY STORE
Regan Smith will be the guest of honor Thursday night at the XFINITY store (219 Daniel Webster Highway) in Nashua, N.H. from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Regan will sign autographs for fans at the store and fans can also check out XFINITY’s products up close!

MILE MAGIC
The last NXS race on a one-mile track, at Dover in June, produced a third-place finish and a $100,000 bonus in XFINITY’s Dash 4 Cash program for Smith and the No. 7 team. In 12 races on one-mile tracks with JRM since 2013, Smith has two top-five and 10 top-10 finishes, and his average result is a stellar
8.75 for those events.

ON THE UPSWING
In his first two JRM starts at NHMS, Smith was eighth and 10th. NHMS is a Speedway Motorsports, Inc. facility, and Smith has three top-five and five top-10 results on SMI tracks in six starts.

PREPPING FOR INDY
NHMS is the last event before the NXS returns to Indianapolis for the second XFINITY Dash 4 Cash event. Smith won the first D4C bonus at Dover, which automatically qualified him for the next race at IMS. Smith and the No. 7 JRM Chevrolet are the only team with a chance to win the $1 million bonus for winning all four segments of the XFINITY bonus program.
