– Zane Smith will make his first career NXS start at Richmond on Friday.
– PatientPop, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based company providing a complete practice growth platform that delivers measurable improvements for medical providers, is on board the No. 8 as primary partner at Richmond.
– Smith recorded an 11th -place finish in his first NXS short track start last weekend at Bristol.
– In 19 starts on short tracks in the ARCA Racing Series, Smith has earned two victories (Nashville and Toledo), nine top fives and 15 top 10s, with two pole awards and 495 laps led.
“We made a lot of progress last weekend in Bristol in what was my first start on a short track in the Xfinity Series. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and I learned a lot and I feel like we can continue to grow off of that this Friday in Richmond. It’s a one-day show which will be interesting but I’m ready for the challenge with our PatientPop Chevrolet. Hopefully we can have a smooth night and come home with a solid finish.”
