Pete Smith



Iím a lifelong fan of racing to put it simply, as is probably true with anyone visiting this page.


            My name is Peter Smith, I presently reside in Toledo, Oh, and have been around racing my entire life mostly from the spectator side, even though my father had drove in numerous facets of racing his career had ended by the time I was born and according to him, I was in the stands for my first race when I was 10 Months old. Since then my springs and summers have been pretty much been filled with attending races,  I have attended every single Indy 500  and Little 500 at Anderson Speedway since 1984 when I was 5. Over the past winter I had the pleasure of getting in contact with Roger Bathe of, and was given the opportunity to take my love for the sport a little further by doing some race reporting. Being a somewhat professional writer, and presently working on a masterís degree in a field of writing at University of Dayton, it was a perfect chance for me to add a little diversity to my writing portfolio, maybe gain some recognition and most importantly give something back to a sport that has provided me with so much enjoyment through my years.

            My focus will be attending and reporting on open wheel races in a 150 mile radius of my home, I typically attend a quite diverse group of tracks but following are a list of places I will definitely be at for one or more race , Toledo Speedway, Sandusky Speedway , Angola Speedway , Fremont Speedway , Attica Raceway Park , Waynesfield Raceway Park , Eldora Speedway , Angola Motorsport Speedway, Butler Speedway, Winchester Speedway and of course Anderson Speedway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

            You can follow me at Ohio_openwheel on twitter for updates from the tracks Iíll be attending or you can friend my on my face book page Buckeye Openwheel
