Stupidity Shown By Fellow Competitor Cost Casey Smith the Win
Apr 17, 2008 - updated Apr 17th, 2008 11:15am

Austin, TX. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:4/16/08

The fact that Texas super late model competitor Casey Smith finished eighth at the Five Flags Speedway last Friday and then somehow managed to finish twelfth with the right side of his #99 Rapid Disposal/ Gary Buchanan Custom Homes Chevy Monte Carlo missing the following day at Mobile will all be looked at as another weekend at the racetrack. However; the story of how that damaged happened is about as strange as it gets no matter what level of racing you’re competing in.

After a much needed top ten in Pensacola, the Casey Smith Racing team continued their domination on fast, smooth surfaced racetracks by pacing practice throughout the day and followed it up by claiming the pole for round one of the five race Miller Lite super late model series at Mobile International Speedway. Smith then lead from the drop of the green flag to lap seventy-one when fellow competitor Danny Bagwell plowed into the right side of the #99 Rapid Disposal/ Gary Buchanan Custom Homes Chevy Monte Carlo under caution ripping the entire right side off of the Five Star racecar body.

Bagwell, who was already multiple laps down, got involved in an incident on lap seventy-one with Donald Long and Dale Little who also happens to be #99. The result sent Bagwell up and over the banked racing surface. The lapped car of Bagwell then decided to retaliate on the person who sent him spinning by ramming his car into the side of the #99. The only problem was that it was the #99 of Casey Smith who was just following behind the pace car as the leader should, not the #99 of Dale Little who had raced mid-pack for the entire event.

“I was just riding behind the pace car joking with guys over the radio when out of nowhere I get rammed from the right side. I didn’t even know what hit me, and once I found out what it was I couldn’t believe it. The guy must be so far in left field if he can’t tell who is racing on the track. He should have known where he is on the track, he should have known if he was near the leader or not. I just can’t believe somebody would pull a stupid stunt like that, it is one thing to rub a guy or spin him out when you’re mad but to basically cause an accident is crazy, it is just stupid,” stated Smith.

For Casey, he was lucky enough to cross the finish line in the twelfth spot to keep his hopes of repeating his track championship from last year. With the past in the rearview mirror Casey is focused more on the future than the past.

“What happened at Mobile was nothing less than disappointing but it’s over and done with so we will move on and focus on our next race at South Alabama. We had a lot of success wining the championship there as well so we have some really high expectations,” said Smith.
