With the sale of its charter to the No. 95 Leavine Family Racing team, Regan Smith and Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will cease operations before 2017.
There were a few high points for TBR in 2016, but they must have sensed the writing was on the wall and they would be in jeopardy of finishing in the bottom three for three consecutive years, which would trigger the loss of their charter. Smith earned only nine top-25s, but all of those came with positive place-differential points. Altogether, fantasy owners are going to get more bang for their buck from the new chartered entity.

Tommy Baldwin Racing has decided to scale back from full-time involvement in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway will be the last race for the No. 7 Chevrolet driven by Regan Smith.

Baldwin sold his NASCAR charter to Leavine Family Racing. LFR will be guaranteed a start for Michael McDowell starting with this weekend's race. Regan Smith needs to qualify on time to get into the show since he no longer has the charter guaranteed start.

Regan Smith may still be a little rusty on short, flat tracks after his nearly two-year hiatus from the Cup series entering this season.

Smith made only one attempt on this track type since 2013 and that was a respectable 16th driving in relief for Kyle Larson at Martinsville Speedway. This year, he has failed to crack the top 25 a single time on short, flat tracks with his best effort landing 28th at Phoenix International Raceway in March.

Regan Smith has not earned a top-10 in his last 12 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but his latest one was memorable in that it was in relief of Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Smith finished seventh in the October 2012 Kansas Speedway race while Junior was recovering from a concussion. He was 17th and 16th in two races on this track type last year in substitution for Kurt Busch, so is capable in strong equipment. In his current ride, his best effort was a 21st a few weeks ago at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

This fall, Regan Smith ran his first Talladega SuperSpeedway in three years but his 32nd-place finish was inauspicious.

Smith should still be considered an interesting dark horse because his two most recent results prior to that ended in a fifth in fall 2012 and a sixth the following May. Dark horses regularly run well on plate tracks and Tommy Baldwin Racing is solid enough to run that well.

Besides driving his regular No. 7 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series Holiday Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, Regan Smith will pilot the JR Motorsports No. 88 Fire Alarm Services Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas on Saturday.

Smith will make his second and final NASCAR XFINITY Series start for JRM this season driving the No. 88. He qualified ninth and finished 11th in his previous stint in the No. 88 earlier this season at Bristol Motor Speedway. Smith has five previous NXS starts at Kansas Speedway, which include top-five finishes in 2013 (third) and 2015 (fifth). The Cato, N.Y. native has eight previous NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at the 1.5-mile tri-oval with one top-10 finish (seventh, 2012). The No. 88 Chevrolet has an average finish of 10.9 on tracks measuring 1.5-miles in length this season.-JRM

Regan Smith has sustained crash damage in three of his last five attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

Smith finished 25th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and 31st at Texas Motor Speedway after the team made sufficient repairs to keep him running. He failed to finish in his most recent attempt at Kentucky Speedway before turning his car over to Ty Dillon at Chicagoland Speedway.

The XFINITY Series Dover race postponement (to Sunday at 10:00 am) -- due to weather -- left teams scrambling to assemble its lineups Saturday afternoon with playoff chances on the line.

Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup contender, Austin Dillon, was expected to perform double-duty, but with both races now on Sunday, teams had to reassemble its lineups so he could focus on the main event -- the first elimination race in the Chase. Regan Smith is set to replace Dillon in the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro as well as drive the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup Citizen Soldier 400.

Regan Smith and his wife Megan welcomed a new daughter Eliza Grace into the world while the rest of us watched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Ty Dillon drove Smith’s car to a 27th-place finish in that race.

Drivers often perform better the week after the birth of a child, so Smith should be considered one of this week’s top dark horse picks. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a driver’s track that rewards skill over horsepower.

Ty Dillon will fill in for Regan Smith in the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) Chevrolet this week. Smith will return home to be with his wife at the birth of their child, according to NASCAR.com.

Smith finished respectably well at Darlington Raceway two weeks ago and Dillon is capable of turning this car as fast as it will go. Based on the performance of TBR on this track type in 2016, look for a result in the high-20s this week. Dillon will start the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 33rd, so he should earn positive place-differential points.

At first glance, Regan Smith would seem to be a solid dark horse for Darlington Raceway. He won the 2011 Southern 500, has one more top-15, and a top-20 in six starts. Fantasy owners will want to take a closer look at when and for whom those results were scored, however.

Smith’s most recent trip around this track in Cup competition came in 2013 racing for James Finch. He finished respectably in 24th after starting 27th. Four of his other results were for Barney Visser, including his win. He finished 29th for Dale Earnhardt Inc. Smith has never raced for an organization that is as lightly-funded as the No. 7 Tommy Baldwin Racing team, so he should be avoided this week. Still, he has a perfect record of running at the end of the day at Darlington.

Regan Smith has finished consistently in the 30s in three short track races this year. His best result was also his most recent one when he finished 32nd at Richmond International Raceway.

On the other hand, Smith’s worst result came at Bristol Motor Speedway where he finished 37th with crash damage. Smith should be evaluated for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race, but not started.

Besides driving his regular No. 7 Chevrolet SS in Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol, Regan Smith will take his turn in the JR Motorsports' No. 88 Dale's Pale Ale Camaro for Friday night's XFINITY Series (NXS) Food City 300.

Smith has 12 previous NXS starts at BMS, which includes one top five and four top 10s. He finished ninth in this race last year in the Dale’s Pale Ale Camaro. The No. 88 Camaro is currently fourth in the NASCAR XFINITY Series owner standings, 62 markers behind the leader.-JR Motorsports

Regan Smith fell 13 laps off the pace at Watkins Glen International last week and provided a little breathing room for Chris Buescher. Smith sits 32nd in the points standings and was nine markers behind Buescher—who is trying to make up ground on David Ragan in 30th—before the Cheez-it 355. Smith is now 14 points out of 31st with an average finish this season of 28.5.

That means Buescher needs to stay at least three positions with Smith while making up one spot on Ragan each week. It is a lot easier to race while looking out

Regan Smith finished third in the Pennsylvania 400, which ties his second-best career finish. He won the 2011 Southern 500 and finished third that same year in the Brickyard 400.

Those both are marquee races, but this may very well top them because it came with the lightly-funded Tommy Baldwin Racing team. He needed strategy to get into third and was passed on the final green flag lap for second, but he outperformed his salary cap by a wide margin. This is his second top-10 finish of the season. His other strong run came on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway wild card track of Daytona International Speedway.
