SMITH WINS SECOND CAREER NHRA GET SCREENED AMERICA PRO MOD DRAG RACING SERIES EVENT AT OLD BRIDGE TOWNSHIP RACEWAY PARK

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. -- Von Smith was able to fight off mother nature and a tough field in the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park to get his second win of the season and in his career in the series.

In the finals, which were held on Monday due to rain postponing action on Sunday, Smith was paired up with Mike Castellana, who was in his first final round appearance of the year. At the start Smith held an early advantage and never looked back on his way to the end of the quarter mile. Smith posted a winning pass of 5.890 seconds at 247.52 mph to a losing run of 6.182 seconds at 196.87mph.

Smith qualified near the bottom of the ladder in 13th, but was able to string together four solid passes during the event to get the win. He defeated Troy Coughlin, Scott Ray and Raymond Commisso prior to making it to the final round.

The NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series returns to action starting on June 18th when they visit Bristol Dragway during the running of the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals.
