GREENVILLE, Texas (March 2, 2024) – Justin Fifield was all smiles Saturday night, and not just because he’d won the top-paying event of his IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car career.

Fifield led start to finish of the Smiley Sitton Classic at Hunt County Raceway, outrunning a star-filled field for a $3,000 payday.

“Our car was just really good. I’m glad we got the win,” said Fifield, who had collected $400 along with the pole shuffle checkers earlier in the program. “I go up and pick Smiley’s brain quite often. It means a lot to me that we could go there and win.”

Kevin Ramey raced from ninth to second. Cody Price, Whit Gastineau and hard charger Chad Wilson … he motored to fifth from 20thstarting … were next across the stripe.

Two cautions slowed the early going. Fifield caught up with the back of the pack around seven and ran in and around traffic to the end.

“It was really a top dominant track. I tried to get as many lapped cars between myself and second place as I could,” he said. “Kevin (Ramey) was the guy to beat when I got into a Sprint Car and most of the time I didn’t. It was pretty cool to be able to beat him, Chad and a lot of other good drivers tonight.”

Sitton founded Smiley’s Racing Products in 1968 and has been a supporter of dirt track racing in the Lone Star State and of IMCA for more than half a century.
