Regan Smith could be a dark horse contender to finish in the top 25 at Kentucky Speedway in the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts. He has two such finishes on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2016 with a best of 23rd at Kansas Speedway.
In his most recent outing on this course type, Smith earned a 28th at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coke 600. He is not going to anchor any roster, but could be an acceptable pick to extend one’s cap value. Smith was 33rd fastest in Thursday’s practice. Jul 7 - 8:56 PM

Regan Smith began the season on a high note with an eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500, but four more top-25s and a couple of 28th-place results have made him worthy of starting when he fits a salary cap plan. One has to guess correctly about when to start him, however.

Pessimists will note that more than half his starts ended outside the top 30 and with only 40 cars in attendance each week one needs greater performance to have a reasonable Fantasy Power Ranking.

Regan Smith got the 2016 season off to a strong start with an eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500, but that race plays by its own rules. In the 10 unrestricted, intermediate speedway races this season, he has scored three top-25s, however, and made a reasonable fill-in pick.

Smith’s best results came at Kansas Speedway and Auto Club Speedway with 23rds. He also finished 25th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That is not the track type on which everyone expected him to excel, so his performance made him a decent differentiator.

Regan Smith has not had a lot of success on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year, but his last two efforts have an asterisk. He sustained crash damage at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway this spring to finish 25th and 31st.

Smith lost only one lap at Vegas, however, and salvaged a 25th-place finish. The Tommy Baldwin Racing No. 7 has occasionally rallied to score decent results, but with smaller fields in 2016 they have not made up much ground via attrition and that seems to impact their average finish.

Tommy Baldwin Racing's No. 7 Chevrolet will pay tribute to 1992 NASCAR Cup champion Alan Kulwicki during Darlington Raceway's throwback weekend in September.

The No. 7 Road Rippers/Toy State design echoes the familiar paint scheme that Kulwicki drove to Victory Lane in three of his five career wins. Regan Smith, the 2011 winner of the Southern 500, said of his paint scheme honoring Kulwicki, "It is a neat deal for me, I grew up watching him, Davey (Allison) and Bill (Elliott) battle it out for the '92 championship. I am really looking forward to getting the No. 7 Road Rippers/Toy State Chevrolet on track Labor Day weekend."-140 BUZZ

JR Motorsports (JRM) and Dale’s Pale Ale, the first craft beer to be featured in a can, have announced a multi-year extension that will see the brand sponsor JRM’s No. 88 Chevrolet in three NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races in 2016-17.

The No. 88 Dale’s Pale Ale Chevrolet will make its season debut on Aug. 19 at Bristol Motor Speedway with Regan Smith returning to JRM to drive in the event. Additionally, the brand will receive associate placement on the No. 1 Chevrolet with driver Elliott Sadler for the 2016 season.-JRM

In his first two races this season, Regan Smith experienced his best finish of the year with an eighth in the Daytona 500 and his worst of 34th at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His last three attempts have all ended in the 20s.

That is where Smith can be expected to run for most of the season. His average result of 23.6 ties him with Kyle Larson for 24th on that chart and could make him a fill-in driver once the remainder of one’s salary cap is set.

Regan Smith delivered an 8th place finish in the Golden Corral No. 7 Chevrolet at today's Daytona 500.

That means Kids Eat Free tomorrow, February 22nd, at Golden Corral restaurants across the country. Each time the No. 7 Golden Corral Chevrolet finishes in the top 10 this season, Golden Corral will offer a one-day "Kids Eat Free" promotion immediately following the top-10 race finish.-140 BUZZ

Regan Smith could be one of the Daytona 500’s top dark horse picks this year; three of his last four attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways ended in top-10 finishes.

All of these came for modestly funded entries with two earned behind the wheel of James Finch’s No. 51 and another for Barney Visser. Tommy Baldwin Racing is capable of running in the top 15 and Smith is going to be moderately priced in most games, which will make him a solid value.

Tommy Baldwin Racing is excited to announce Regan Smith as driver of the No. 7 Chevrolet in 2016.

As previously announced, Toy State and their Nikko RC and Road Rippers brands will serve as the majority sponsor for the season. Smith's career in NASCAR boasts a total of 7 wins, 34 top-five's and 94 top-ten's across the three National Touring Series, including the storied Southern 500 at Darlington in 2011.-Tommy Baldwin Racing

One simply does not get any more consistent than this in NASCAR: in four attempts in 2015, Regan Smith finished 16th three times and was 17th once.

Three of his starts came with Stewart-Haas Racing in relief of Kurt Busch and one in relief for Kyle Larson in the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing ride. His consistent finishes were even more remarkable because he started in the back of the field in nearly every race with a best position of 24th in the Daytona 500. He was credited with starting seventh at Martinsville Speedway, but was sent to the back of the field as a relief driver.

Regan Smith (#7 TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet Camaro) finished ninth in the November 21st NASCAR XFINITY Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 300 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The JR Motorsports driver started 14th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 200-lap event. Smith, who competed in all of the season's 33 races, scored two wins (Mid-Ohio on August 15th and Dover on October 3rd), 11 top-fives, 26 top-10s and closed out the season fourth in the final 2015 XFINITY Series driver championship standings.

Regan Smith will make his 100th career start for JR Motorsports at Homestead-Miami…the same place he made his first for the team in 2012.

In that race, Smith took the lead for good on a restart at lap 179 and held on through two restarts over 22 laps to earn his first career NXS victory. He joined the team full-time for the 2013 season, and combined with his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at Darlington in 2011, has won races in five straight seasons at the top levels of NASCAR competition. Just 24 points separate Regan Smith from his first NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) championship this weekend. After a seven-point gain at Phoenix, he trails leader Chris Buescher, teammate Chase Elliott and rival Ty Dillon. The top four are all within 24 points, so the battle is still undecided.-JR Motorsports

This weekend’s race will mark Regan Smith’s 200th career NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) start.

His first series start came in 2002 at the age of 18, driving for Ed Whitaker at Memphis Motorsports Park. His first full season was in 2006, driving for Sam Rensi, and Saturday’s race will be his 98th start for JR Motorsports. Smith has run well at Texas Motor Speedway, with a top-five and four top-10 efforts in five races since coming to JRM full-time in 2013. His only top-five, a fourth, came earlier this year, and he averages 7.0 per finish on the 1.5-mile oval.-JR Motorsports
