Bart Smith drives the #s4 Street Stock
Class car. He lives in Villa Grove, IL. His home track is
Charleston Speedway but he can also be found racing at Vermilion County
He started racing in
1984 in the Street Stock Class at Charleston Speedway after a friend
talked him into doing it. His first win was in 1985. Career
highlights include 2000 Track Champion at Charleston Speedway, 14 Heat

The thrill of racing for Bart is starting in the back
and coming to the front. His most exciting racing moment was the
Saturday night that he took the Hat Trick, which is winning all 3 races
that night. He's most proud of winning the Championship and helping
his son with his first year of racing.
Bart's racing hero is Jeff Gordon.
Of racing, Bart says, "It is a very fun sport but takes
lots of time and money!".
