Garrett Smithley on the Racing Writer’s Podcast
Garrett Smithley returns to the podcast to talk about how things are going in the Xfinity Series with JD Motorsports. Smithley breaks down the start of his season and describes what a good day or ‘win’ is for his #0 team; whether making the playoffs is a realistic goal; how thin JDM is spread on personnel; whether he ever worries about the team going away; how important it is not to damage or wreck his cars and how much he thinks about that; how it has been to see others like Ross Chastain and Ryan Preece get an opportunity in good equipment; talking to Chastain about his chance with Ganassi and living vicariously though him; the comparison of running Xfinity versus Cup, and his deal with Spire to run the 77 Cup car; the experience of running all three races in one weekend back at Texas and advice Carl Edwards once gave him; what he is looking forward to as he turns 27.
