Smith Impresses With Grove URC Score


MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Mark Smith scored an impressive victory Friday night at the Williams Grove Speedway, winning the 25-lap MACH 1 Chassis sponsored URC/358 Sprint Challenge.

Smith drives the house car for MACH 1 Chassis so it was a popular win all around. Smith started 12th and took the lead on lap fourteen from J.J. Grasso. Once on top, Smith ran unchallenged to his second URC win of the season and his fifth career win.

A field of 30 cars took part in the MACH 1 Chassis Challenge with the three heat race victories going to Jonathan Swanson, Randy West and Andy Best as Curt Michael won the “B” Main.

In the closing laps, Grasso had to contend with Pat Cannon who was challenging for second. With four laps remaining, Grasso broke away from Cannon and started to reel in Smith. Grasso ran short of time to serve up a challenge as Mark Smith took the victory. Grasso finished a strong second followed by Pat Cannon, Josh Weller (who started 20th) as Randy West finished fifth.

The finish:

Mark Smith, J.J. Grasso, Pat Cannon, Josh Weller, Randy West, Aaron Ott, Andy Best, Ryan Bohlke, Brian Carber, Davie Franek, Glenden Forsyth, Ryan Wilson, Chad Trout, Curt Michael, Brock Zearfoss, Chris Arnold, Jay Galloway, Dan Mazy, Jonathan Swanson, Scott Lutz, Dave Betts, Ed Aikin, Tim Berkheimer, Robbie Stillwaggon, J.R.
