APPLIANCEZONE.COM RACING ENTHUSED ABOUT MICHIGAN PROSPECTS -- Smith To Race "In His Own Backyard" With Enhanced Car

June 2010

Brad in AppZone Car

Corydon, Indiana – This weekend Detroit native and resident Brad Smith, driver of ApplianceZone.com Racing’s #26 Ford, will compete at Michigan International Speedway in the fastest car he’s ever run in 22 years of ARCA series racing. The Racing For Wildlife 200 begins this Friday at 5 pm "practically in Smith’s own backyard."

Smith says the car was recently completed by Todd Bowsher out of Springfield, Ohio, and is built on a fully restored Yates chassis purchased from Howard Bixom last year. "Howard ran well on it and I hope to do the same," Smith said.

Smith and his brother Jeff (who also helps out as crew chief during many of Smith’s ARCA races) started the reconstruction after Gene Patient modified the rear clip and body. The car is a Fusion with high travel front end geometry. The engine is a freshened Joe Rhyne.

"Michigan is a high horsepower track and this engine gets us in the range of some of the bigger budgeted teams," Smith said. "We're not going to be afraid to turn this engine up to the chip at 8,800 RPM. This may be our best ever run at Michigan. Michigan International Speedway is a wide track with sweeping corners that allow a lot of passing and wide open racing," he said. "We can go three and four cars wide through the corners so there will be some good racing not only up front but throughout the pack. I'm really looking forward to this weekend."

Persons interested in pit crew positions on the Brad Smith team (Detroit area residents only) should send an email to Brad Smith (brad@bradsmithmotorsports.com).


SMITH TAKES 2010 SEASON BEST WITH "PINCH" CAR AT POCONO -- ApplianceZone.com Racing Continues Up Hill Climb

June 2010

AZ Race Car

Corydon, Indiana –Brad Smith went to Pocono Raceway with his short track "pinch" car ("it’ll do in a pinch") and ended up finished 16th place at today’s ARCA’s Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200. It was a season best finish for Smith driving the #26 Ford for ApplianceZone.com Racing.

Mechanical mishaps sidelined Smith at Daytona, Palm Beach and Salem. Now midway into his first full year under ApplianceZone.com Racing’s sponsorship, Smith sees 16th place Texas and Toledo were improvements and Smith views a 16th place finish in such an under-powered car as yet another step forward for 2010.

"Of course we’d have liked to have done better but we just didn’t have the muscle to keep up on the straightaways," said Smith. "We did the best we could with what we had. I’ll take 16th any day after what we’ve been through this year."

Smith says he’s charged up about the possibilities for next weeks race at Michigan –he’ll have a much-improved car and a full crew at the track. Michigan International Speedway is an important event for Smith. A native and resident of the Detroit area, it’s his home turf.

ApplianceZone.com Racing will soon unveil a new web site showcasing its motorsports program. Persons interested in pit crew positions on the Brad Smith team (Detroit area residents only) should send an email to Brad Smith (brad@bradsmithmotorsports.com).


APPLIANCE ZONE HEADED TO POCONO WITH "PINCH" CAR -- Smith Bringing Short Track Car To 2.5 Mile Paved Triangle

June 2010

AZ Race Car

Corydon, Indiana – Baseball has pinch hitters. Brad Smith, driver of ApplianceZone.com Racing’s #26 Ford in the ARCA series, is bringing a "pinch" race car with him to this Saturday’s Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200 at Pocono Raceway. As the team hurries to prep for the following race at Michigan International Speedway, Smith hopes the short track car will do "in a pinch."

"Although we are bringing a short-track car to a big track, this track drives much like a short-track so we should be OK in that respect," said Smith. "We've had some decent finishes there in the past and we feel like this weekend may have another good finish in store."

Smith says Pocono is one of his favorite stops on the ARCA tour. "We're really looking forward to returning to the Pocono's to race," he said. "We've always felt very welcomed by the Mattioli's when we come to Pocono and we appreciate the hospitality that they give the ARCA series when we come to town.  Dr. Joe & Dr. Rose are wonderful people and we hope to put on a great show for them and the fans."

APPLIANCZONE.COM RACING: SMITH RATCHETS IT UP AT TOLEDO -- Driver And Crew Finding Their Groove In 2010 ARCA Series

May 2010

AZ Race Car

Corydon, Indiana – Brad Smith, driver of ApplianceZone.com Racing’s #26 Ford in the ARCA series, squeezed a season best 18th spot finish today during the Menard 200/ Federated Car Care race at Toledo Speedway. Smith, a 22-year veteran of the series, says his team is finally seeing sunshine after a succession of disappointments drew dark clouds over this year’s tour.

"The car ran well, speeds were competitive and the crew really showed signs of finding their groove," Smith said shortly after the checkered flag. "I’m calling it a moral victory at least. We had a really fun weekend."

Smith’s buoyant outlook at least partially stems from having been joined at the track by his brother Jeff and longtime friend Wayne Kintz. The two shared the role of crew chief in a tag team approach that leveraged their combined thirty years of experience in ARCA racing. Although Jeff Smith has been involved with Brad’s racing career from the beginning, he’s been unable to participate for most of this year.

Said Jeff: "Brad’s got a lot of new and younger guys on his team this time around and needed Wayne and I to show them the ropes. Basically, they just need to learn from people that have done it –just like we did. Having come up from the back at Talladega and again today, the team is getting a real boost in spirits."

Persons interested in pit crew positions on the team (Detroit area residents only) should send an email to Brad Smith (brad@bradsmithmotorsports.com).


ARCA SERIES BRINGS BROTHERS TOGETHER AGAIN AT TOLEDO -- Driver Brad Smith Joined By His Brother Jeff As Crew Chief

May 2010

Brad and Jeff Smith

Corydon, Indiana – Brad Smith, driver of ApplianceZone.com Racing’s #26 Ford in the ARCA series, will see a familiar face in the pit when his brother Jeff assumes the role as Crew Chief during the Menard 200/ Federated Car Care race starting 2:00 p.m. this Sunday at Toledo Speedway.

The two brothers, both raised and still living in the Romeo, Michigan, area, have been involved in racing since youngsters –their father was a racing enthusiast and, briefly, a driver as well.

"My dad was a backyard mechanic that always had a passion for cars and he planted the seed for me and Jeff," Smith said. "We were too young to watch him race but attended many events with him at the old Mt. Clemens Race Track and got to see a number of the legendary Michigan drivers like Benny Parsons, Joy Fair, Ray Neece, Irv Baumgarten and others."

Although the two brothers collaborated in ARCA racing for many years, in recent years Jeff had other obligations that kept him from attending. The Toledo race is therefore a family reunion of sorts at the track –fans may get a glimpse of the "raw intensity" between the two siblings in a sport both pursue with great passion.

"Jeff is a very knowledgeable crew chief and a great fabricator," said Smith of his brother. "He also has a very good understanding of racing from a business perspective and is also calm under pressure and able to think quickly on his feet.  When he’s at the track he is the anchor of the team and I’m able to trust him completely with the car."

Smith’s sponsor, ApplianceZone.com Racing, is glad the two brothers will be working together again. "One of the great things about stock car racing is that it truly is a family friendly sport," said ApplianceZone.com’s CEO Jim Allen. "Families take part in it together –not only in the stands but in the pits too—and pass the enthusiasm from one generation to the next. As a family-owned and operated company selling appliance parts and accessories to other families, we enjoy being part of this aspect of racing."

ApplianceZone.com is one of the largest online retailers of appliance parts and accessories. Allen started the company with a web site created by his then teenaged son and an investment of only $1000.
