– Zane Smith will get behind the wheel of JRM’s No. 8 Chevrolet for the sixth time in 2019 this weekend at Chicagoland. He’s claimed one top five and three top 10s in his five starts this season.

– Smith is coming off his first career top-five finish, earned in his most recent race for JRM at Iowa.

– Smith has made one previous start at Chicago in the ARCA Menards Series in 2018, scoring a fourth-place finish.

– This weekend marks the first race for Canadamark, the leading brand of diamonds mined in Canada, and BN3TH, the first to produce men’s underwear with a patented MyPakage Pouch Technology™.


“It’s great to get back behind the wheel of the No. 8 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports during consecutive races, especially since we are coming off of a strong run in Iowa. I’m really confident we can keep building off of that and come home with another good day in Chicago. We’ll have a lot of guests here from Canadamark and BN3TH that should be in for a great day on Saturday. I can’t wait to see what Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all the guys on this No. 8 team can do.”
