URC Opener Is All Mark Smith
SELINSGROVE, Pa. — Mark Smith made short work of a 31-car field of 360 sprints cars as the Rislone URC Sprint Series opened their 67th season Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.
Smith led the entire 25-lap distance on the half-mile oval after receiving the pole position from Mike Walter in the “revenge redraw.”
On lap 17, Robbie Stillwaggon took advantage of a caution flag to restart alongside Smith for a double-file restart. At the drop of the green, Smith dominated the restart and quickly opened an eight car length lead over Stillwaggon who started 10th.
Smith took the win driving the Brian Scandle-owned MACH1 sprinter and pocket the $2,500 first place prize. For Smith, it was his first URC win of the season and sixth career URC victory.
Stillwaggon finished second ahead of Ryan Kissinger, Davie Franek and Larry Kelleher.
