Recapping 2017
The Ford EcoBoost 200 will be RBR and Smith's 13th attempt for the 2017 NCWTS season. In the prior 12 starts for the team, Smith has two top-10 and 10 top-15 finishes. The only two lower finishes came as the result of accidents (Charlotte and Talladega). Smith, despite only making 12 of 22 starts to date, sits 18th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings.

Quoting Regan Smith
"I hope we can end the year on a high note at Homestead," said Smith. "It is a track where I have had some success as a driver and where RBR has some experience. We have had some speed in our 1.5-mile trucks of late and I think the payoff will come this weekend.

"I really have to thank (team owner) Ricky Benton, this team and our great sponsors BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors, Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Valvoline and Goodyear Commercial Tire and Service Network. 2017 has been fun going racing with all of them."

Quoting Team Owner Ricky Benton
"Regan, Mike and whole RBR team have had a great 2017," said Benton. "We could not have done it without some wonderful partners in BTS, Advance, Carquest, Valvoline and Goodyear or the entire Black's Tire family. They let us go racing with Regan 13 times, which is the most we've run since 2011 and, for that, we are very thankful."
