Series PR Report
UB Machine Racing of New Haven, Indiana has announced that they will contend for the 2010 CRA Super Series Championship with driver Jack Smith. UB Machine Racing is owned and operated by Greg Urbine, who has been a car owner in stock car racing for several years including competing in the former ASA National Tour. Smith, a Medina, Ohio native is a veteran racer on many levels, he has been racing with Urbine the past several years mostly in ASA Late Model Series events as well eight starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with MB Motorsports.
UB Machine Racing will be making a return to the CRA Super Series were they competed fulltime during the 2007 season with Smith. The team competed in all 13 point events that season using an underpowered crate engine, but still managed a 9th place finish in the final point standing with a best finish of 10th at three events, including the season opener at Nashville and at the events that season at Columbus Motor Speedway and Berlin Raceway. The team also competed in a couple of series events in 2008. In 2009 the team competed in the ASA Late Model Challenge Series were they finished 12th in points with two top five finishes.
“We are really looking forward to coming back and running for the Championship with the CRA Super Series in 2010,” remarked Smith. “I am 32 years old and I have won over a 100 races, but I have never won a Championship. My dad always had me racing in different events in different areas, and that’s pretty much what I have been doing with Greg, but winning a Championship is something I would like to accomplish at this stage in my racing career. I still plan on racing some NASCAR stuff around the CRA schedule also.”
Urbine and Smith are currently building a brand new car at UB Machine to compete with in 2010 and the team is working with McGunegill Engine Performance to use one of their Sealed Engines to race with this season.
Smith added, “McGunegill was a huge help with our crate engines the past several years, we wouldn’t have been able to race at all with out their help. I am looking forward to being able to compete in CRA with some additional horsepower in 2010, I guarantee we will be a lot more competitive than we were in 2007. We are still going to use our crate motor at some races, I think that’s the ticket to winning the events at the lower horse power tracks like Columbus, Berlin and maybe even the Red Bud 300 at Anderson.”
