Smith, a perennial champion on asphalt made the switch to dirt a few years ago before moving into the Modified division last season.
Starting eighth in the 23 car starting lineup, Smith took the lead from Otego's J.R. Hurlburt on lap 30 using the outside line off turn two. Hurlburt had taken the lead from Binghamton's Ken Titus on lap 15.
"We've been getting closer. And obviously doing it every week has made a big difference for our team. We're getting in a rhythm. The biggest thing is running weekly and getting in a rhythm" said Smith after the race.
Titus led the early laps of the race from his second starting position opening a half straightaway lead by lap 8. Entering lapped traffic on lap 10 Titus continued his run until the caution came out when Chris Bushnell, of Cortland, hit the front stretch wall and came to a stop in turn one.
