– Zane Smith returns to JRM’s No. 8 Chevrolet for the seventh time in 2019 this weekend at Iowa.

– Smith earned a fifth-place finish in the first NXS event at Iowa back in June. In six starts for the team this season, Smith has tallied one top five and three top 10s.

– Smith has two starts at the .875-mile oval in the ARCA Menards Series, with a best finish of fourth in 2018.

– PatientPop, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based company providing a complete practice growth platform that delivers measurable improvements for medical providers, returns to the No. 8 as primary partner for the third time this season.


“I’m really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 8 Chevrolet this weekend in Iowa. I was able to get my first top-five here in June and I know that Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and I have a really good game plan heading in to practice on Friday. It’s also awesome to have PatientPop come back onboard. Hopefully we can give them another great run on Saturday night.”
