In The Spotlight: Moses Smith

Moses Smith, 2009 NASCAR Camping World Series West Driver, is in his 3rd full season driving for the revered Bill McAnally. Moses Smith drives the No. 16 Hasa Pool Products/White Flyer Toyota Camry.

This past Saturday, NASCAR Camping World Series West raced at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah (near Salt Lake City). With his new sponsor Blimpie on board, Moses qualified the #16 Hasa Pool Products / White Flyer Toyota Camry in eighth position for the start of the Miller Motorsports Park “125.” However, after misfortune forced the team to pit three times, Moses found himself in 18th place at the race’s halfway point.

After the last yellow flag, with only ten laps to go, Moses charged forward from eighth place for a 5th place finish.

Want to see and hear Moses? Here is an interview he did at Miller Motorsports Park this past weekend in Utah:



Tomorrow, beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET, you can watch Moses Smith in action during the West Series Infineon Race on SPEED Channel.

I'm not going to pretend that I know the talent level of this driver in the spotlight, but I've become acquainted with Moses' mother Z. Smith through Twitter. Through the communications with Mrs. Smith, she has asked that I, and all NASCAR fans, vote for Moses in the annual Most Popular Driver contest for the Camping World West series. Moses won the prestigious Most Popular Driver Award last year and looks to keep his crown.

You can vote once daily through the NASCAR.com website at this link:

The drivers don't know the results until the awards banquet at the end of the season.

Thank you for voting for Moses Smith daily for the Most Popular Driver!

It is good to see drivers get recognition from the smaller series. Most of the time the Cup boys get all the press.
