Ryan Smith Pleased with Run at Eldora Speedway

Kunkletown, Penn. (September 23, 2007) -- Ryan Smith headed to Eldora Speedway on Saturday to participate in the USAC 4 Crown Nationals. Although he finished 20th, he was pleased with the fact that he was the only ARDC car to make the field in the feature race.

"We were just lacking motor power," the 19 year-old explained. "We really didn't get too far, but I learned so much."

Ryan is the current rookie leader in the ARDC Midget series and is sitting fourth in overall points. With such a successful season so far in the series, the No. 54 Burke Trucking team decided at the last minute to participate in the events at Eldora.

"We've really got our car running well [in the ARDC series]," commented the college student. "We thought we would come out to Eldora and just give it a shot and I'm pretty pleased overall."

Ryan will have a couple of weekends off from the ARDC series, but he heads to Linda's Speedway this weekend where he will be running the No. 2 Tresch Motorsports micro sprint.
