SMITHLEY READY FOR LAS VEGAS

LAS VEGAS – Garrett Smithley will carry an 11th-place standing in Xfinity Series driver points into Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Smithley started the season with a flourish at Daytona International Speedway, finishing eighth. He followed that with a 27th-place run last week in Atlanta.
“Daytona was great, and we dropped back a bit last week,” Smithley said. “But we’ve had great cars. I enjoyed racing at Las Vegas last year (for the first time). It’s a fast track that’s challenging.”
Practice is scheduled at 4 and 6 p.m. (ET) Friday. Qualifying is set for 1:05 p.m. Saturday, followed by the race green flag at 4 p.m.
