Clint Smith to Start 2015 Campaign in Annual Bama Bash
(January 15, 2015) As the 2015 racing season rapidly approaches, Clint Smith announced today that he will not follow the World of Outlaws Late Model Series circuit this year. With the switch back to owning and operating his own equipment and a lack of funding to follow a national tour, the WOOLMS stalwart will be forced to scale back and race closer to home in 2015. Instead of opening up during "Speedweeks," Clint has earmarked the 18th Annual 'Bama Bash' at East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, Alabama as his season lid lifter on February 27-28. The Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) will preside over the high-profile program, which boasts a hefty $15,000 payday.

The driver known as "Cat Daddy" finished fifth in his heat race and ninth in his B-Main on Friday evening, while he ran fifth in his heat race and third in his B-Main on Saturday. On both occasions, Clint was forced to rely on an emergency provisional to gain access into the 50-lap headliners. The Senoia, Georgia native wound up twenty-ninth in the final rundown of the feature on Friday and twenty-seventh in Saturday's final finishing order. Clint was officially placed ninth in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Championship point standings.
