Moses Smith Leaves Texas 3rd in the NCWS West Point Standings

Moses Smith, driver of the No. 16 HASA Pool Products/White Flyer/TCI Transportation Toyota Camry for Bill McAnally Racing is tied for third in points after finishing sixteenth in the All State Texas Thunder 150 at Thunder Hill Raceway in Kyle Texas. This was his second visit to the .375-mile oval and his best finish at this track, as last year's efforts were hampered by a broken rear end.

Smith was third quick in second practice and qualified the No. 16 HASA Pool Products Toyota on the outside of row four to start the 150-lap race. He ran solidly in the middle of the pack thru six cautions when at lap 124, he and a competitor made contact after battling for position for several laps. A great driving effort by Smith kept the No. 16 HASA Pool Products Toyota on the pavement, but not without damage to the front of the car. On the white-flag lap, the damaged oil cooler let go, coating his tires with oil, making the No. 16 Toyota virtually impossible to drive. Moses briefly went off-track after he spun in the oil and was struck by a competitor. He quickly regained control finishing the race in sixteenth and on the lead lap.

"It was a lot of fun racing at Thunder Hill Raceway. I want to thank crew chief Duane Knorr and all of the HASA team for a great effort this weekend," said Smith. "Third in the point standings a good place to be. We've got some of my favorite tracks coming up and the No. 16 HASA team from BMR is prepared to close the gap on the point leader."

The next event on the schedule for the NASCAR Camping World Series is the US Cellular 200 East/West combination race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa, on May 18.
