SMITH TAKES 2010 SEASON BEST WITH "PINCH" CAR AT POCONO
ApplianceZone.com Racing Continues Up Hill Climb

Corydon, Indiana -Brad Smith went to Pocono Raceway with his short track "pinch" car ("it'll do in a pinch") and ended up finished 16th place at today's ARCA's Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200. It was a season best finish for Smith driving the #26 Ford for ApplianceZone.com Racing.

Mechanical mishaps sidelined Smith at Daytona, Palm Beach and Salem. Now midway into his first full year under ApplianceZone.com Racing's sponsorship, Smith sees 16th place Texas and Toledo were improvements and Smith views a 16th place finish in such an under-powered car as yet another step forward for 2010.

"Of course we'd have liked to have done better but we just didn't have the muscle to keep up on the straightaways," said Smith. "We did the best we could with what we had. I'll take 16th any day after what we've been through this year."

Smith says he's charged up about the possibilities for next weeks race at Michigan -he'll have a much-improved car and a full crew at the track. Michigan International Speedway is an important event for Smith. A native and resident of the Detroit area, it's his home turf.
