David Smith drives the #114 Mini Stock
He started racing in 1988 in the Super
Modified Class because his Dad, Earl Smith, raced as David was growing up.

David enjoys tinkering with the cars,
building the engines, trying things, but mostly he likes to drive and be
competitive. Since the kids started playing ball, racing does take a
back seat until June.
His racing hero is Alan Kulwicki, but his
earliest racing memories are of watching and pulling for Gene Chupp.
