“Cowboy” Craig Smith Wins at Antioch

Antioch, CA — (May 14th, 2011) — Reigning track champ “Cowboy” Craig Smith of San Martin, Calif. fought off a late charge by Nick Green of San Jose, Calf. to win a non-stop 360 Winged Sprint Car feature Saturday night at Antioch Speedway.

“The track was real racey tonight. Nick (Green) was impressive,” Smith said in victory lane. “He came from pavement racing and it’s his first year in winged sprints. I thought he was gong to catch me.”

Third went to Ryan Rusconi.

Danny Wagner is still the top dog in the “Mini-Trux” division. The 18 year old from Bay Point, Calif. was challenged late in the event by Jon Haney of Brentwood, Calf.

A thrilling finish saw a spinning truck on the checkered flag lap have the two going high and low to avoid collision, but Wagner managed to maintain his lead over Haney. Ron Mayberry finished third.
