GAFFNEY, S.C. (March 5, 2018) – Garrett Smithley, driving the No. 15 Flex Tape Chevrolet Camaro for team JD Motorsports with Gary Keller, finished a solid 23rd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300.
With a brand new NASCAR Xfinity Series racecar, Smithley qualified 26th for the Boyd Gaming 300, and raced in the top 25 for most of the race.
“It was a fun race, and I had a fun car to drive,” said Smithley. “This is probably the best car I’ve ever had for Vegas. The car responded well to all of the changes that my crew chief, Wayne (Carroll), made. We got behind a little bit on tires, but all and all, it was a really great day. We learned a lot about this car that is going to help us all season. I can’t thank Flex Seal, Flex Tape, and FAME enough for their continued support, and I’ve got to thank Above180 Podcast for coming on board this week and next week at Phoenix.”
Next up for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the DC Solar 200 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, A.Z., on March 10th, 2018.
