dominates Path Valley main for second Speed Week win…
SPRING RUN: Stevie Smith’s road to a Pennsylvania Speed Week title could have taken a hit at Path Valley Speedway Park. There were plenty of disadvantages heading into Night 2 of the nine-race series. The most glaring was that Smith had only been at Path Valley once, and that was 25 years ago.
Then again, there was a time when Smith raced for a living. He raced with the World of Outlaws and was used to unfamiliar territory. Sunday night was a flashback to those days. Smith not only looked like a Path Valley regular, he dominated the 40-lap Party at the Path for his second-straight Speed Week win and a $5,000 payday.
“It just felt like another track,” Smith, 49, said. “I had a really good racecar and when I got to lapped traffic, it helped me a lot.
“We were able to maneuver good and made good decisions. It was another good night. We started on the front row… I, mean, I can’t really explain it.”
The win was Smith’s eighth career Speed Week triumph and makes him perfect through two nights of series action. It also gives the Oklahoma driver a comfortable point lead.
Smith has 348 markers, 68 ahead of second-place Danny Dietrich, who finished second Sunday. Greg Hodnett is third with 273, followed by Lucas Wolfe (254) and Brent Marks (243).
