Completes record breaking Pennsylvania Speed Week run with Selinsgrove victory.
SELINSGROVE: Stevie Smith could have taken it easy around speedy Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday night.
It's been a busy week, and Smith's job was pretty much done after time trials and his heat race. He set quick time for the 32-car field and wrapped up the Pennsylvania Speed Week title with a lot of room to spare.
So there was no pressure entering the 30-lap Jan Opperman/Dick Bogar Memorial. No one would blame Smith for coasting and enjoying the moment. But Smith had a goal entering the series. He wanted to make his mark by becoming the first driver in Speed Week history to win five races. Smith was still hungry. And then he took to the half-mile surface and dominated the competition like he did all week and added $5,000 to his series war chest in another romp to Victory Lane.
"This week's been amazing," Smith said. "I've never won Pennsylvania Speed Week, and no one has ever won five [races].
