The driver should be announcing his new 2020 plans, now that it has been revealed that he will not return to JR Motorsports’ No. 8 program next season.
The big rumor swirling around Smith for months is that he will move to Richard Childress Racing’s Xfinity Series program full-time in 2020. The team has also been rumored to be running more than one full-time team next season in the Xfinity Series, which would still leave a seat open for Daniel Suarez — as has been rumored since he was let go from Stewart-Haas Racing.
Smith, 20, has done an incredible job in his first season driving in the NXS.
In 10 starts this year, Smith has racked up two top-five finishes and seven top-10’s. Overall, Smith’s average finish on the year has been an awesome 10.3 and he has just one DNF.
He certainly deserves a full-time opportunity for a capable race team.
