    WACO, Texas (March 8, 2023) – While the track was new, the story was the same when the Cody Smith show traveled to Heart O’ Texas Speedway for round four of the Sunoco Race Fuels Lone Star Tour presented by Sniper Speed. Smith won for the fourth time in as many $750 to win Smiley’s Racing Products IMCA Southern SportMod starts, then outran Jesse Sobbing to the $3,000 checkers following a late-race stoppage in the 30-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car headline event.  “We’ve been fortunate and gotten some pretty good draws,” acknowledged Smith, who nonetheless had to work his way to the front from seventh starting in Wednesday’s Stock Car feature. “We were excited to win this race. I can’t believe we won two tonight.”  Twentieth starting G.W. Egbert IV, Benji Kirk Patrick and early race leader Paul White rounded out the top five.  White drew the pole and led through the first 10 laps before two-wheeling his way high out of his line and watching Smith speed by following a lap 11 restart.  Gould [Read More]
