Full-Time Cup Duty Awaits Smith
With a Trackhouse contract in hand, Smith now focuses fully on preparing for his first full Cup Series season next year. It marks a major step up in competition for the young driver, though his past performances indicate he’s ready for the challenge from veteran racers.
